Ever hear of the RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT? Ticky tack veep Mike Pence signed it. Know what else?

The Ticky Tack veep told George Stephanopoulous that he would NOT support language that would bar discrimination.

The LGBTQ Community fears that this act would give legal backing to discriminating against them specifically. This  is the issue about which Mayor Pete  and the Ticky Tack veep  are having their mini fight. It is a mini fight because  anything in which the Ticky Tack veep is involved is automatically very small because he is very small.

    Should a Muslim caterer be required by law to serve pork if the customer wants pork chops for their event?

    Good question and one they would most likely say no to because they are Muslim and not Christian. Just my opinion of course. :)

    Yes, I've heard of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It's a federal law passed in 1993 that is intended to "prevent other federal laws from substantially burdening a person's free exercise of religion." You are jumping all over Mike Pence, a Republican for signing it but keep in mind the following.

    The legislation was introduced by Rep. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on March 11, 1993, and passed by a "unanimous U.S. House and a near-unanimous U.S. Senate" with three dissenting votes. Near all Democrats and Republicans voted for it. A true act of bipartisanship. Something sadly lacking today. The bill was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

    Imagine that, Chuck Schumer a "Democrat" introduced the legislation and Bill Clinton a "Democrat" signed it into law. Why pounce on Pence, a Republican, when it was the Democrats who introduced the legislation in the first place? Are you against bipartisanship or are you against Pence for being the Vice President to President Trump or are you against both bipartisanship and Pence? :)
