As never before in America, the turmoil over Indiana’s enactment of a religious freedom law is showing the intolerance of the gay activist movement.
Three states – Connecticut, New York and Washington - have banned state-funded travel to Indiana. Five cities - Washington, D.C., Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, West Palm Beach, Fla. - have banned city-funded travel there too.
Companies are threatening to pull thousands of jobs out of the state. Hollywood and pop stars and refusing to work there and cancelling concerts. The Obama Administration is furious; Hilary Clinton tweeted: “Sad this new Indiana law can happen in America today.”
Amongst this anti-Christian bigotry there are incitements to outright violence against Christians.
When the O’Connor family, owners of a Memories Pizza commented to the press that their faith would prevent them from catering a gay wedding, they became the focal point of anger against the law. They received death threats. The hate and rage directed at them was so vicisiou that they were forced to close their establishment and are soon to abandon their home and are attempting to move out of state.
One high school coach even had the guts to Tweet a call for people to "burn down" the pizzeria, writing: “Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?”
Like never before in America, Christians must stand up to defend their persecuted brothers and sisters in Indiana. Will you do that with us now? Sign this petition standing for religious freedom.
And call Indiana Gov. Mike Pence at (317) 232-4567 and urge him to stay strong on religious freedom.
