Do you support GOP "freedom of religion" laws?

The law in Indiana is supposed to protect religious freedom but just looks like a legalized discrimination against LGBT, Jews, Muslims, Atheists or anyone else. Bow a similar law is being considered in Arkansas. Would you support this in your state?

@2tfx,
I would fully support it if everyone in your list can also withhold services to anyone not in the groups you listed.

When the tables get turned, those sorts of laws aren't fun anymore and soon get overturned.

I disagree. Before the reforms of the 1960s businesses were free to withhold services to anyone for any reason. What happened is that minorities got screwed,

There is a reason that we started making laws to prevent discrimination.

@maxdancona,
Businesses didn't decide just to do the right thing. It took an organized boycott against businesses that used discrimination freely, and when business and government services suddenly felt a cold breeze in their pockets and a precipitous drop in revenue, they had their come to Jesus moment.

But no, I would not support a law like Indiana's or Arkansas's that allows people to pretend they are Christian and God wants them to treat others like crap. I would rather see a freedom from religion bill passed.

@glitterbag,
It was not the organized boycott that stopped discrimination.

It was the civil rights law of 1964 (which came from the boycotts) that stopped businesses from using discrimination
