Indiana governor’s foolishness

April 1, 2015

What this governor is on about has nothing to do with religious freedom. There is already religious freedom: it is guaranteed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. What he’s on about is just what he’s being accused of: discrimination against the LGBT community. Fags and dykes and heshes. Christianity is not under attack, either, as it is a major player in politics, associated with the right and far right, people who are, really, using Christianity as shills. Using Christianity to rationalize discrimination is fallacious–but it is not new. It’s part of what got us slavery and kept the institution going; the racism of the post Civil War times; the being of the KKK. This behavior is the antithesis of the teachings of Christ, esp when you add in the Nag Hamadi. There are still some Christian groups who will not help you (sometimes under a disguise) unless you join their conclave. Even not comprehending the full extent of the sociocultural lessons in the story of the Good Samaritan, such “believers” are not at all believers. They are hypocrites. If you want a theocracy, then look to Salem, the Church in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, Islam. . .intolerant, prejudicial, paranoid (as in witch hunting). . .

The Indiana governor is way out of line, as are all people who believe they have the right to not serve people they do not approve of, who they can rationalize as “bad” or “outre” or “undeserving.” All of the States who have passed such a law, even with their anti-discrimination clauses, are dysfunctional and rationalize intolerance and hypocrisy. All people who believe in this kind of religious practice, i.e., I don’t have to help you because of what you believe, which is different from what I believe, are inhuman. I can only hope one of them is taken before a court for murder just because they would not help someone based on their belief.

Sick. Sick, sick, sick.
