Mike Pence's claim about his anti-gay law contradicted by picture of him with lobbyists

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will have you to believe that the recent 'religious liberty' bill he signed into law isn't anti-gay. He claims that beliefs of the alleged anti-gay animus of this law is some sort of campaign of mis-education.

Don't believe Pence.  He is lying. And the proof comes from the signing ceremony of the bill.

While the signing of the bill was private, this particular picture was released on Pence's twitter account. It shows the governor with  priests, nuns, orthodox Jewish leaders, and lawmakers:



HOWEVER, this picture below shows the governor with a different group of folks, i.e. lobbyists who pushed for this bill. Thanks to GLAAD and Twitter user @SeaMonkey237, we know who these folks are. Their names and what they have to do with anti-gay activism are clearly described (click on pictures if you need to enlarge them.):


Just in case you need the links concerning the folks in the second picture and their  history of vicious anti-gay activism:

Based upon this picture we now know why Gov. Pence wasn't forthcoming about his "religious liberty/freedom" law on 'This Week.'

If he had said no when asked does the bill allow for anti-lgbt discrimination, he would have been clearly lying.

And that picture of him with those anti-gay lobbyists is the smoking gun.

I used this link a little bit ago when I said that lobbyists for this law were known to make anti-gay statements when someone was trying to say this law had nothing to do with gays.
