The Left's Evil, Hypocritical Boycott of Indiana

This was the outrage du jour yesterday, "Indiana Religious Freedom Law Sparks Fury" (via Google and Memeorandum).

But according to the Washington Post, "19 states that have ‘religious freedom’ laws like Indiana’s that no one is boycotting."

Government has to show a "compelling governmental interest" before it can trample religious freedom. That's all that's required. The Indiana law is in line with the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. See the Weekly Standard, "Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Explained." More often than not public accommodations are made for disadvantaged groups. The important thing is that in certain circumstances protections for religious observance will outweigh the goals of state attempts to force equality. And that's why the left is outraged. They want to trample freedom of conscience. They cannot stand a free people making moral choices for themselves. Leftists want state power to force compliance without exception. It's hateful and bigoted. But that's the essences of far-left regressivism.
