'Fox News officially an enemy of the lgbt community' & other Friday midday news briefs

What the anti-gay industry wants America to see us as.

The Fox News Campaign To Defend Indiana's Anti-Gay "Religious Freedom" Law - A prediction I made a long time ago is now official. Fox News is now the place where anti-gay organizations and leaders can go to repeat their homophobic propaganda without challenge. This is a problem because now we have entire network working against our equality. 

Fellow liberals: Don’t harass the bigots, please - See the picture above. That and this post is dedicated to the misguided folks who netted a homophobic pizza parlor much unnecessary attention and over $500,000. Please know the difference between the pawns and the manipulators. And above all, DO NOT allow the manipulators to use the pawns in order to make you look like something you are not. Now that you know the anti-gay industry's game, PLEASE stop playing it.

 Indiana Governor Signs Measure Limiting Damage of RFRA, but LGBT Hoosiers Remain at Risk - Victories never mean an end to a war. It merely means an advantage which you must capitalize on to WIN the war.

  At Least Ten Religious Groups Have Come Out Against Anti-LGBT ‘Religious Liberty’ Laws - This brief is dedicated to Mike Huckabee who falsely claimed that gays want to eliminate the church. His statement accentuates the problem. SOME Christians feel that their version of their religion is the only one in this country which matters. That's why they attempt to grab all of the attention.

 Indiana Law Went Too Far For Most Americans To Support - The basic reason why Indiana suffered the backlash to its "religious freedom" law.

That Memories Pizza thing was a SCAM from start to finish. There's NO WAY they didn't know they were setting themselves up to Play Martyr, via the RightWing Media Machine, and GoFundMe nutcases (though I doubt they'll get a *fraction* of the money pledged!)

I am almost ashamed to say I was born in Indiana and lived here from that day. What we see from our government is an attempt to whitewash this bill to hide their religion; the intent being all to clear. While not backing down they did back up, adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the bill. However, it seems little, if anything, says that discrimination is not allowed, only that this bill can not be used as a defense. The so-called clarification essentially nullified what they wanted to do.

As I understand it, this bill, while being questioned as to federal constitutionality, also is runs afoul of parts of the Constitution of Indiana.

This not over. Not by a long way.
