Thinking out loud

I can’t believe we still live in a world where people discriminate against others just because of their race, sexual preference or whatever else that sets us apart. I am seriously disgusted beyond words by the law in Indiana. How did Gov. Mike Pence come to such a disgusting and disgraceful conclusion? I feel sorry for everyone in that state for being represented by him. Ignorant and inhumane. What a shame. 

Here are a couple of articles

What are your feelings on this? Are you as outraged as I am?

  1. I am just as outraged about this new bill. In my opinion, this “freedom of religion” is just an excuse for people to legally discriminate against others. It’s outrageous and taking our country backwards.

    Yesterday I wrote a post about it as well. I hope that other states don’t start following suit. It’s terrifying to think that other politicians could be trying to fight for the legal right to discriminate against others.

  2. I’m at a point now where I don’t get outraged. I just feel pity for people so close-minded as to not see that love comes in many forms, even forms they don’t understand.

    And I wish they could understand that rejecting a person based on sexual preference isn’t a form of love.

  3. I see this as resistance to a progressive trend not moving in Mike Penceโ€™s favor. The final roars of dinosaurs aware they are dying out in droves. It takes longer for this to happen in some regions, but the general public is more open minded and compassionate towards such matters, and continues to grow, or so I take comfort in believing.

  4. It’s a shame because he’s done a lot of really great things for Indiana, but this is definitely ridiculous and not a good thing. I agree with gabriel360live, love is definitely in many forms! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Intolerance is a sad thing. Unfortunately, human nature being what it is, ignorance sometimes prevails. And when it comes to politics, ignorance and votes go hand in hand.
