Ira and Joe cover EVERYTHING about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that has been enacted in Indiana. Many out there are calling to #boycottindiana, but we cut through all of the disinformation and flat out lies coming from BOTH sides of the fence surrounding this issue, and get to the true heart of the matter.
We also talk about those that claim they are Christian but are actually as anti-Christ as you can get.
Tune in to hear all about it, and don’t come if you are easily offended. These are HOT BUTTON subjects for people.

One thing that should be troubling even to people who support this law (and similar ones in other states) is that it essentially requires courts to determine what is (or is not) an exercise of religion. To me, that means that (a) the courts must determine whether a belief asserted by someone seeking relief from a law or regulation is a religious belief and (b) whether that belief is strongly or sincerely held. I know that in labor law, past practice matters a lot, so I wonder what that would mean for someone who only now begins to assert a religious belief as a defense.
Paperwork for the First Church of Cannabis Inc. was filed Thursday – the same day Gov. Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law.

More dividing, more discriminating. I understand that you should have the right to turn away any customer working for a private company or your own business, but where does that mindset put us in a the future? It practically breeds ignorance.
Pretty soon we’ll have gay and lesbian condominiums or diners in the south who only serve people with mullets. It will never end. The business owner may hold his beliefs above other employees who may have to carry out orders that make them feel uncomfortable. All because of one person’s intolerance.
