Daily Prompt The Religious-Liberties Law in Indiana

The religious-liberties law in Indiana is a very dark turn in America.  Where do we draw the line on what we consider offensive and non-offensive?  It gives business owners the right to refuse business on the basis of anything they consider contrary to their religious beliefs:  other religions, different races or cultures, people who wear tattoos, unmarried non-virgins, the possibilities are infinite.

If two old ladies decided to get married as a convenient means of taking care of each other in their old age, would that be a sin?  Or would the law only apply to people who actively engage in gay sex?

The law is so vaguely written, it will open the doors for new, silly religions solely based upon exploitation of the loopholes.  Is that what we want in America?

“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”  John 8:7

  1. The really good point that you make in this blog is that by passing the law at all, whetever the intention, it is certain to set off a whole lot of idiots trying to exploit people with whom they disagree on grounds that have nothing to do with this bill. You are right too to concentrate on the whole question of who decides what is a sin and what isn’t. If two people feel attracted to each other and are of the same sex that is actually perfectly normal and natural. It happens all the time. I have a lot of male friends for whom I have a very deep affection, but that’s all. The idea of having sex with them does not appeal to me in any way. What does that make me? Don’t I have I have to commit a sin first to become a sinner?
