religfreedommaps-1_v2Is it possible to have a rational discussion about the Indiana Religious Restoration Act? I have some questions for BOTH sides.

For those opposed, here are my questions:

  1. Do you also boycott any companies doing business with anti-gay regimes like in the middle east? If not, what is the difference? Wouldn’t a country where you can be put to death for being gay be worse than possible refusal of service?
  2. What is the number one fear that you have regarding the law to cause such an outrage, especially when 19 other states have it as well?
  3. If the governor also put in to play an anti-discrimination law protection for gays, would that make the issue go away? If not, why?
  4. Do you believe that religious people have the right to practice their religious belief? For example can a baker refuse to make a penis cake for anyone, let alone a gay person, if it’s against his beliefs? This includes Muslim bakers.
  5. Related to question 1, if gay rights are so important to you, do you support the only regime in the middle east who is gay friendly against the rest where it is considered an abomination and punishable by death? If not, why?
  6. Should an SEO company, owned by Jews or African Americans, be allowed to turn down traffic building jobs for the KKK and their messages? Should a gay person be able to turn down the same for websites spouting anti-gay messages?
  7. What is the number one thing you wish the other side understood?

For those in favor, here are my questions:

  1. Why do you feel this law was even needed?
  2. What has happened recently for you to feel this is needed?
  3. Is the law the best way to ensure your needs are met?
  4. Do you believe the country should be governed by religious values or is it a freedom issue for you?
  5. How do you feel about gay rights in general?
  6. Why do you believe, if you do, that this is not discriminatory?
  7. Using the hypothetical Christian baker, should he be allowed to refuse service to gays or just gay themed products? Why?
  8. What is the number one thing you wish the other side understood?
