INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (The Adobo Chronicles) – The furor that has erupted over an Indiana law that gives businesses the right to refuse service to gay people has prompted the state’s legislature and its governor, Republican Mike Spence to go back to the drawing board to amend, if not totally repeal the law.
Sources close to the Republican leadership in Indiana said that there is a growing consensus within the party to pass a fixer-upper law that would all but repeal the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
The fixer-upper will be called the Religious Freedom Restoration Restitution Act (RFRRA).
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (The Adobo Chronicles) – Now that Governor Mike Pence has signed the legislation giving Indiana citizens the right to discriminate against gay men and women on the basis of religious belief, the Indiana State Legislature is busy preparing for its next major agenda: to ban birth control pills.
Oddly enough, the new proposed legislation is not based on religious belief. Rather, it is based on science and the environment!
As reported in The Washington Post, an alarming number of fish in rivers and oceans has been found to be gender-bending — making them unable to reproduce. This, according to scientists, will eventually wipe out the world’s supply of fish.
The culprit for this phenomenon? The birth control pill.
Flushed down toilets, poured down sinks and excreted in urine, a chemical component in the pill wafts into sewage systems and ends up in various waterways where it collects in fairly heavy doses. That’s where fish soak it up.
A recent survey by the U.S. Geological Survey found that fish exposed to a synthetic hormone called 17a-ethinylestradiol, or EE2, produced offspring that struggled to fertilize eggs. The grandchildren of the originally exposed fish suffered a 30 percent decrease in their fertilization rate.
Immediately after the news came out, the Republican members of Indiana’s Legislature convened a caucus to draft a bill that would totally ban birth control pills as a way to protect the fish population.
Governor Pence vowed to sign the bill as soon as it comes to his desk.
“This is no longer a matter of religious belief,” Pence said. “Rather, it is a matter of protecting the environment.”
“We’re not necessarily a fan of gender-bending,” Pence added.
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (The Adobo Chronicles) – Emboldened by supporters after he signed a state legislation legalizing discrimination against gay men and women based on religious belief, Governor Mike Pence today issued an Executive Order in preparation for next week’s Easter celebration.
Executive Order 666 prohibits state and local government offices as well as vendors and contractors that receive government funding from holding Easter egg hunt gathering and activities that feature rainbow-colored eggs.
In issuing the order, Pence said ” We need to start promoting religious and moral values among our citizens while they are still young. We will not allow our young kids to be exposed to the moral propensity of the gay community. Having the gay colors in such a revered tradition during Easter is not appropriate for the children.”
Pence ordered the National Guard to monitor all Easter egg hunt activities within the state to make sure that eggs be painted only in one color of the organizer’s choice. Several colors on eggs that even slightly resemble the gay flag will be confiscated.
