I think the founders would be laughing their asses off at the idea that the local baker should be forced to make products his religious beliefs don't support.

But it's not just the baker refusing to bake a cake with two male figures on top. It's the potential to allow the baker to refuse to sell a plain loaf of bread to two male figures because he doesn't agree in gay marriage. Or a gas station refusing to sell fuel. Or a doctor refusing to provide medical treatment.

People should be able to serve whom they want and I refuse to bow down to the tyranny of the minority

Doesn't GenCon have just as much right to express who (and where) it wants to do business with that the businesses who want to discriminate do? If the state is going to put it into law that a business can object to doing business with someone who goes against their religion, why can't GenCon say we choose not to do business with the state?

It probably won't affect you too much, but add Alcoa, Eli Lilly, Cummins, and Sales Force to the list of companies who won't ever patronize because they all wrote similar letters to the governor.

Please cite specific gyms, clothing stores, medical centers which refuse to business with men for services that would be applicable for men. For everyone you post, I'll likely be able to post an example of the same type of business being sued and winning a discrimination lawsuit.

Pedophilia is illegal. Being gay isn't. Big difference.

And it's not just about producing something "gay" (e.g. a wedding cake with two grooms on the top). It also would allow discriminating a gay couple from buying a regular sandwich at a deli, or a drink at a coffee shop just because of their marital status. It's a license to discriminate.

Put up or shut up. Instead of saying that the law will factor in to the decision making process, directly tell them that it will not be in Indianapolis or anywhere else in Indiana if the law is passed. Tell them that the law will automatically disqualify the city and state from consideration. And then follow through with it if not also try to get out of the existing contract should Pence sign the bill. Anything else is just an idle threat and won't be taken seriously.

And if you reread your parent's post, it was specifically pointed out that in the studies animals are either injected or they ingest the chemical as part of the studies.

I have no idea as to the medical or biological results of those studies, but I would think that a dog grooming themselves would be sufficiently covered during testing by injecting and/or ingesting it.

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
