This might actually have a silver lining.
First it's likely to open the floodgates to religious battles in these states, exposing the stupidity of such laws. There is technically now nothing
stopping a Pagan person from putting a sign up banning all Christians from their business. Someone claiming to be Christian could now use this law to
refuse to serve divorced people. Christians can now refuse to serve certain products to anyone at all. Muslims can refuse to serve Jewish people, and
Ultimately, we're likely to see even more laws being passed in these states to "protect Christians" from the discrimination THEY HAVE CREATED. This
will then likely result in the federal government having to step in and slap all these states back into line.
It's also going to cost these states billions in revenue. They've basically just handed Democratic states a few more billion $'s a year each as
companies start moving their attention to more tolerant parts of the country.
This can only all go one way, all the stats are showing that Americans are becoming more liberal in their thinking, and less religious. They are
increasingly f-ed off with the Republican preaching, the Tea Baggers, the moral nonsense and the religious lunacy. The youth are increasingly leaning
to the left.
Anything which diminishes the rabid right-wing and their crackpot cultists is fine with me, even if we have to put up their utter nonsense for a few
years with laws like these. This might all end up being pretty entertaining, even though I feel sorry for those caught up in this stupidity in these
