While ThreePercentersNation.com was ahead of the curve on reporting this story, the rest of the country has now caught up on the news and the great politically correct pushback has begun.
Last week, Indian Governor, Mike Pence, signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. And while he has received great support from his constituents and 19 other states have also enacted the same, that isn’t stopping the left and gay rights lobby from making their opposition heard.
HuffPo reported today that Connecticut Governor, Dan Malloy, is banning any state relate trade to the state of Indiana.
Human Rights Campaign, and organization working to advance LGBT equal rights, reported North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory’s opposition to the bill.
“What is the problem they’re trying to solve?” McCrory told WFAE’s Charlotte Talks. “I haven’t seen it at this point in time.”
And BlueNationReview reported the Georgia House has pulled the bill from a floor vote, tomorrow, even though it passed the Senate by a very large margin of 38 to 15.
In The New Civil Rights Movement, Indiana GOP lawmakers held a press conference to try to thwart some of the backlash that was perceived to have been stirred by an appearance, by Pence, on ABC’s this week with George Stephanopoulos.
Bosma also talked about the backlash over the past few days, saying it was the result of “miscommunication and misinterpretation by both opponents and proponents.”
“There was a mantra from opponents that it allowed denying service, and then, unfortunately, some proponents concurred,” Bosma said.
The two lawmakers were only too happy to use the Governor’s poor performance as a political shield, and said they were forced to hold the press conference as a result of Pence’s poor performance Sunday.
