A priest, a rabbi, and half a dozen nuns walked into the Indiana Statehouse last Thursday. The punchline: Mike Pence. Indiana’s Republican governor has become the left’s favorite punching bag after passing a Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) last Thursday at a ceremony featuring a number of conservative religious leaders. “Many...

I have to admit, I was amused.  I go outside and can hear coyotes yipping a lot of nights where I live.  Coyotes and some other wildlife do pretty good around people, more than most of us realize.
New York is a concrete city populated by humans--for now. But is that a tire screech you hear, or a pack of coyotes howling at the moon, living in your old apartment, lying in wait? New, disturbing evidence out of Queens suggests we're running on borrowed time.

quote: While these laws do not mention gays or discrimination, the timing is no accident. As bans on same-sex marriage fall, those promoting such laws have made no secret of their desire to protect conservative Christian individuals and businesses, such as caterers and florists, who choose not to sell services to same-sex couples. This is not discrimination, the supporters say, but protecting religious liberty.

But a denial of service by public business is the essence of discrimination, civil rights groups respond. They add that these latest religious freedom laws include language that could open the way to even wider discrimination.

“With courts and legislatures ending bans on same-sex marriage, some who oppose it have turned to Plan B, the use of religion,” said Jennifer C. Pizer, director of the Law and Policy Project at Lambda Legal, a gay rights group. “Essentially, they are saying that if same-sex couples can come into the public arena, we want the right to selectively build a moat around ourselves.”
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act was adopted in 1993 to protect members of vulnerable religious minorities, but it has been transformed, critics say, into a law that allows some religious groups to undermine the rights of women, gays and lesbians, or other groups.

Do conservatives deny that there's a drought in California? Do they not care because it's California? Or do they just think it's God's wrath for Obamacare or minimum wage hikes or something?
