I had an interesting, but blood boiling discussion with someone the other day over the Indiana and Arkansas Religious Freedom Laws which were/were not passed, but eventually were signed by the Governors of those states. I would like to share some of what transpired in my back and forth tweets with a Shawn Grams@airwolf1967, who I do not know from Adam.
I began with a tweet:
"So proud of our country for the overwhelming opposition to crazy religious freedom laws! #BoycottIndiana #BoycottArkansas"
Mr. airwolf 1967 responded:
@kfrankiii the only ones having a fit are LW Crazies btw. America Stands for Religious Freedom. #BoycottArkansas" ("LW"=Left Wingers)
@airwolf1967 As well as Freedom From Religion!"
Mr. airwolf1967 reminded me that:
"LWers tend to bring up that point. Been there Read that"
Me: "Want to run a business for the PUBLIC, then you serve everyone, not just those you like!"
airwolf1967: "people have lost their business bc a gay couple wanted to force them to go against their religious beliefs. #RFRA is good"
This went on for quite some time until Mr. airwolf1967, wrote, If my religious beliefs were against whatever it is. There is no excuse to make me do that according to the 1st Amendment"
MY POINT EXACTLY Mr. air wolf 1967: There is absolutely no need for such a law, except to allow someone to discriminate because of the 1st Amendment which gives you, me, and everyone in the US freedom to practice their religion!
