    One of America’s unacknowledged problems is the national calendar shortage. It is not a general problem but restricted only to a segment of the population, although an influential one. Unfortunately, the calendar-challenged group is composed mostly of Republicans. No doubt some Democrats are also a few calendars short of a load and are similarly living in the past, but recent news indicates where the phenomenon has proliferated. One sign of calendar deficiency is the start of the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Canada, the first major candidate to declare, announced his candidacy at Liberty University, Va.,...

    The passage of SB 101 right before the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four weekend in Indianapolis has generated more discussion on the topic of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) athletes than we have seen since Michael Sam came out right before entering the NFL draft. NCAA president Mark Emmert swiftly issued a statement expressing his concern “about how this legislation could affect our student-athletes and employees,” and showed his interest in protecting those attending or competing in the Men's Final Four. This position from the NCAA marks a clear shift in how far we have come as a movement...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas lawmakers have given final approval to a religious-freedom bill that has drawn sharp criticism from opponents who say it opens the door to state-sanctioned discrimination against gays and lesbians. The House voted Tuesday to approve the measure, which prohibits the state and local governments from infringing on a person’s religious beliefs without a “compelling” interest. The measure now heads to Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who has said he will sign it into law.

    Maybe it’s time progressives started using these “religious freedom” laws to our advantage.Maybe it’s time to start the Church of Gay. Or actually pass state and federal laws specifying that gay businesses have the legal right to discriminate against religious fundamentalists. Time to fight special rights with special rights. After all, Indiana’s new “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” does just that—it confers special rights on a small minority of citizens and, importantly, their private businesses, to disregard other laws and the constitution and discriminate against other citizens. The law isn’t about protecting religious freedom; it’s about hiding the impulse toward ugly...

    No one, I think, would ever have denied that Maurice Bessinger was a man of faith. And he wasn’t particularly a “still, small voice” man either; he wanted everybody in earshot to know that slavery had been God’s will, that desegregation was Satan’s work, and the federal government was the Antichrist. God wanted only whites to eat at Bessinger’s six Piggie Park barbecue joints; so His servant Maurice took that fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which in 1968 decided that his religious freedom argument was “patently frivolous.” Until the day he died, however, Bessinger insisted that...

    One of the most outrageous – and prominent -- homosexual activist groups in the state was given permission at the last minute to march in the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Later the parade organizer said he didn’t know they were a “gay” group when he let them in. This preposterous alibi has only served to outrage faithful Catholics even more. On Friday, March 13 (two days before the parade) the Boston media erupted with the story that a second homosexual group, Boston Pride, would be marching.

    Last week, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a state version of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which prevents the government from forcing people of faith to violate their religious beliefs. Nineteen other states and the federal government have similar laws that protect religious liberty. Pence and state lawmakers should have been cheered for their defense of human and constitutional rights. Instead, they’ve been lambasted by business leaders, celebrities, Seattle’s mayor, and the NCAA, some of whom have threatened the state with losses of tens of millions of dollars in business.

    Perhaps Indiana Gove. Mike Pence and state lawmakers should revisit the “religious freedom” legislation. They’ve officially lost NASCAR , a sport that, despite its growing diversity, still has a strong conservative base. “NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana,” said NASCAR Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer Brett Jewkes, in a statement released Tuesday. “We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we...

    CONNECTICUT TO BOYCOTT INDIANA OVER RFRA, FORGETS IT HAS ITS OWN By Emily Zanotti on 3.30.15 Presient Obama isn't the only person who has selective memory when it comes to voting for and passing a Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This morning, the governor of Connecticut, Dan Malloy, announced that he would be the first governor in the union to sign an executive order limiting state-sponsored travel to Indiana because of Indiana's ostensibly "discriminatory practices."

In a press conference Monday, Ballard announced that he had issued an executive order that "no vendor, contractor, grant recipient or anyone receiving public funds or benefits of any kind shall discriminate on the basis of...sexual orientation [or] gender identity."

    The federal government passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993. It was authored by Chuck Schumer, passed with nearly unanimous support from both parties, and signed by President Bill Clinton. The legislation was needed after a bad Supreme Court ruling delivered by Antonin Scalia that limited religious freedom for Native Americans who smoke peyote as part of their religion. A later Supreme Court ruling ruled that the RFRA didn’t apply to state or local governments. Twenty states passed RFRAs and another 13 have protections like the ones in RFRA. And yet when Indiana passed the legislation last week,...
  • Ted Cruz Can’t Do What Glenn Beck Says

    Less than a week after leaving the Republican Party, Glenn Beck had something to say about how Ted Cruz should approach the primaries. Leave Scott Walker and Rand Paul alone. Otherwise, Beck warned, “we’re just going to end up with Jeb Bush.” (Bill O’Reilly was skeptical about Beck’s whole GOP-leaving business.) Cruz professed his admiration for Paul and Cruz, but didn’t quite commit to refrain from criticizing them. That’s because he can’t. The Republican presidential race can be split into the conservative primary and the establishment primary. Beck isn’t wrong that a divided conservative vote could benefit Bush, but there...

    "There's something very dangerous happening in states across the country," Apple chief executive Tim Cook warned Monday in a Washington Post opinion piece against Indiana's newly passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It matters not to the corporate big shot that President Bill Clinton signed a federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1993 (which current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi supported) or that then-Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama voted for a similar law in 1998. It was one thing for Democrats to support religious freedom when there was no downside to standing up for the devout. Today there could be a...

    Apple CEO Tim Cook attacked Indiana this weekend for passing a religious freedom bill. Cook said, “There’s something very dangerous happening in states across the country.” Cook may believe Indiana’s new law is very dangerous towards gays…But it’s not as dangerous as the several countries Apple does business with where they execute gays. Four of the ten countries where they kill gays are on this Apple list:– Uganda– Nigeria– Qatar– Saudi ArabiaIf Tim Cook really wanted to help gays, he might want to focus on the Apple customers who execute them.
