[su_right_ad]If you’re going to pass a budget in America, why not through in a little anti-gay language for good measure, as Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe did.  Framed as “religious freedom,” proponents of legal discrimination, like Indiana Governor Mike Pence, can’t tell you whose freedom is being compromised.

Sen. Inhofe’s amendment reframes those who discriminate (against gay people per religious beliefs) as being discriminated against by the federal government.

According to Sen. Inhofe’s website, “Amendment 381 would seek to prevent the federal government from discriminating against individuals, businesses, or organizations based on their sincerely held religious beliefs regarding abortion or marriage.”

The Indiana governor, when asked whose religious freedom is being compromised, can’t name one, per the video here.[su_center_ad]

        Yeah–like ignoring Rush…I do hear that he’s being bumped down the chain from AM super stations to local 5,000 watt daytime operations. I think that the only reason he’s still on is because Premier Networks includes him free with the package deal.

      Popular opinion doesn’t matter to the self righteous. They know better than the general public.

    when will the lgbt community and all sane people who believe in individual rights assemble and vote these kinds of low life slimes from office and/or work to destroy their careers?

    Oklahoma……Now I like the state senator in Arizona that wants to pass a law to make everyone go to “Church” on sunday…

    Seems to me that their beliefs aren’t being suppressed because they can still believe that and follow the law. What these types of bills and amendments do is pardon their “actions” preemptively. Where does your religious exemption end? I mean, I have a sincerely held religious belief that salvation requires a car battery, jumper cables, duct tape, 30-weight, and Sen. James Inhofe. Preventing me means you are discriminating against me! The First Church of Jeebus Christ, Hedonist will not stand for this tyranny!

    Repukes/teabaggers are best example of hypocritical Christians doing un-Christian things. They are the Christian-Talibans and Christian-ISIS of USA.

    Religious bigots aren’t a ‘minority protected class.’ Greedy Oil Polluter ‘Inhofe’s unconstitutional amendment’ pretends social cons haven’t lost every divisive issue decoy, that Repubs use to hide from their only remaining agenda.. ‘Leave no billionaire behind’ was outed by GWB’s Great Recession record low everything.

    Even the Pope says “The tendency [to homosexuality] is not the problem … they’re our brothers”-Pope Francis excommunicates GOP bigots condemning repubs.

    Government-sanctioned discrimination — it’s how the Republican Party envisions “American exceptionalism”.

    Not having learned anything from their bigotry-motivated mistakes of the past, social conservatives strive to once again end up on the wrong side of history.

    Why…just why?

    Religious freedom??? Whose? Westboro Baptists?? There’s no one stopping them from going to church. They can believe anything they want to. But those beliefs stop at their church doors, they don’t get to use the government to force those beliefs on everyone.
