Barack Obama's Chicago presidency (conclusion); Anatomy of an Obama success (finally); Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act doesn't need to be "fixed"; Are we prepared to handcuff a feminist photographer who won’t take pictures at a strip club?; Jim Crow compelled discrimination, RFRAs do nothing of the sort; and sorry to disappoint the "social justice" warriors, but the faithful won’t yield on religious liberty, which means they will have to be forced to do so.
Today's show looks at the ludicrious religious freedom act posited by Indiana. Coporate America fires back. Pence backpeddles. Why the homophobia by the GOP? Iran talks extended and much more. THIS IS A PODCAST no LIVE CALLERS

Angie's List, the online service that provides consumer reviews of service professionals, publicly endorsed anti-Christian bigotry by opposing an Indiana law designed to protect religious liberties and freedoms.
Last week, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) after the state legislature overwhelmingly supported it. Twenty states now have passed the law, with Arkansas and Georgia currently considering it.
Back on the air tonight with the Hon. Elizabeth Letchworth Chryst, retired US Senate Secretary. We'll be discussing Indiana Governor Mike Pence's headlne-making dilemma.. but is it REALLY a dilemma? Or something else?
Elizabeth will have the answers and the backstory.
Today we are going to share with you some comments from 43 year old, Alan Chambers, the former President of the now dismantled Exodus International. He recently gave an interview with homosexual, Jeff Chu, from a group called Level Ground.
Also, Robert Schuller has died and Mike Pence has caved to the homosexual activist community.
Last week, Indiana's governor, Mike Pence, passed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This is a state level version of the national law that gave us the atrocious Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court. However, that national law does not extend to the states, thus the push to have state level laws.
I'll talk about the blow back, the backlash, and the consequences of this new law. I'll give my perspective on how this law affects those around me.
Plus, your calls.
With same-sex marriage battle lost — waiting only for the SCOTUS cymbal clap in June, wingers are pig piling on a new ploy. In numerous states, legislatures are pretending to protect religious freedom from the inevitable and fearful persecution from dem damn gays.
I'll kick around Indiana's worst-in-class blunders in trying this ruse.
POTUS hopeful, Gov. Mike Pence (R, of course) signed a bill into law that pretty much lets anyone for any reason discriminate against LGBT potential customers. Poorly disguised as protecting citizen's First Amendment rights to exercise religion, it instead is an atavistic license to ignore statutes, case law and morality.
Pence seemed to figure the Hoosier lawmakers were being oh, so clever in patterning the bill after the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wrong there. The RFRA was yet another cowardly and ill-considered Pres. Bill Clinton effort to appease wingers.Yet Indiana's version is worse, even legislatively malignant.
I'll get into the concepts of balancing exercise of religion with both commerce and respect as required by federal law. We can be very sure Pence and his minions are having similar discussions following the nationwide blowback to Indiana's overreach.
This week Indiana Governor Mike Pence faces the backlash of his "Religious Freedom Reformation Act
A small pizzeria gets heat for their comments about the law.
Arkansas is getting in on the controversy as well!
Tennessee Senator Todd Gardenhire has nothing nice to say to a constituent.
A Russian "Doctor of Military Sciences" has a plan to take care of the U.S. once and for all.
Iranian general says erasing Israel off the map is nonnegotiable.
Oh, and we struck a nuclear deal with Iran today.
Also, don't miss the Bonehead/Hero of the Week, Jon's Soapbox, and Ira's random thoughts!
Let the fun begin!
With internet glitches not allowing me to pull up my research I could not really do Part 1 justice, so, Part 2...
I'd love to have some who listened to my archived show on this topic call me LIVE starting at 11:05 p.m. Friday, May 1.
From Indiana's Pence to Louisiana's Jindal, right-wing governors are supporting and signing legislation that allows businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples. Pizza Parlors, Florists, Photographers, Beds and Breakfasts, and other business have said they would refuse service, or actually have refused service to same sex couples. Some of these governors are backing down from their own legislation.
Businesses are pulling out of Indiana, and other states - they will NOT back discrimination as a right. These businesses - such as Salesforce - have cited reasons that are all about diversity.
20 states have passed some form of religious freedom law - including Connecticut, and Rhode Island - which shocked the bleep out of me. Religious freedom laws are pending in 6 states - North Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii (seriously?), Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. Similar legislation has failed in 6 states - including Utah, which also surprised me. 18 states, plus Washington, D.C. do NOT have current legislation similar the RFRA's pending or recently passed.
Do these governors and state legislators understand that states rights cannot usurp a persons' constitutional rights? "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."
I bet you know where I stand on this issue, but I want to know where you stand - and why.
Let's explore the rights - and wrongs of these laws.
I hope you will join me.
