It’s Holy Week, the most important season in the Christian calendar.  During this week millions of Christians worldwide will commemorate the cruxifiction and resurrection of Jesus Christ between Good Friday and Easter Sunday morning.   Yet the story of the week is not so much the triumph of Jesus dying and rising from the dead for our sins….but rather an obscure “Religious Freedom” bill that just passed in Indiana, targeted squarely at discriminating against those in the LGBTQ community.

The country, quite frankly is up in arms against this new law and it’s putting much heat on the governor of Indiana and the legislature that passed the law.  Companies are moving their employees out of the state, and major conventions are weighing their options about holding future meetings in Indiana.  Even the giant retailer, Walmart, flexed its muscles and put a squeeze on the governor of Arkansas not to sign a similar bill. 

Times are changing. The question is why do some feel the need to shut out minority groups…this time in the name of religion??
