Eight is Mike Pence's unlucky number

While Arkansas may still pass an awful "religious freedom" bill and North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory coming out against one, it's important that we continue to hammer the lies told by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence with regards to that state's "religious freedom" law

This video by the Human Rights Campaign needs to go viral.  It condenses Pence's 'This Week' interview to the eight times he refused to say whether or not Indiana's religious freedom law could be used to discriminate against lgbts.

To reiterate, Pence was asked this question eight times and every time, he wouldn't give a definite answer. Pence's sidestepping is an indictment against his character and that of these anti-gay "Christian conservatives" who claim to stand for God, morality, and values, but then would use underhanded tactics while hiding their motives.

They have been doing this sort of thing for decades, but now it is not only time for us to strike back, but also demand answers. If they want to engage in a debate regarding the positive existence of lgbts, we should demand that their anti-Christian lies and tactics be a part of the debate.
