Where Mike Pence’s Definition of ‘Religious Freedom’ Leads

This long predates Indiana’s SB 101, but anyone who thinks that Mike Pence and those like him do not share the belief embodied by the final excerpted sentence from Marshner is engaging in aggravated self-delusion.

And, under Indiana’s SB 101, the belief embodied by the final excerpted sentence from Marshner is given the force of a state-sanctioned legal defense for anyone or any business that might want to use it to the legal disadvantage of LGB and/or T people.
