RFRA In Indiana. Is This You?

I saw this online and figured he has said it so much better than I have that I would just put it up here for enjoyment as well. I am a Christian business owner.

I am a Christian business owner.

Not really. But If I were, this is the sign I would put in my door.

“Dear Valued Patrons.

Due to my sincerely held religious beliefs, and in light of the RFRA, recently signed by our Dear Leader Pence, I will no longer be doing business with the following persons; nor permitting them in my establishment:

1.  Divorcees.  Matthew 19:9: “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for unchastity, and marries another, commits adultery.”

2.  Anyone who has ever read their horoscope or called a psychic hotline.  Leviticus 20:6: “As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.”

3.  Anyone with a tattoo.   Leviticus 19:28 “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.”

4.  Anyone born illegitimately.  Also, anyone who, back to ten generations, is descended from someone born illegitimately.  If you can not PROVE, using appropriate church sources, that ten generations of your family were born in wedlock, I will have to err on the side of caution and not serve you. Deuteronomy 23:2 “No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the LORD; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the LORD.”

5.  Anyone who makes a practice of praying aloud, or in public.  Matthew 6:5-6  “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”

6.  Any woman with braided hair or gold jewelry.  Just to be on the safe side, NO jewelry at all.  1 Timothy 2:9 “Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.”

7.  Any man who has ever, by accident or not, had his genitals damaged.  (Current interpretation of this scripture is under debate, so just to be safe, if you’ve had a vesectomy, or testicular cancer, I can’t serve you.  I apologize for the inconvenience but I am worried for my soul.)  Deuteronomy 23:1 “A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord.”

8.  Please don’t bring your kids in if they have a bowl cut.  Leviticus 19:27 reads “You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard.”

For those of you complaining that some of these scriptures are from the Old Testament, and that Jesus came to redeem us from these laws, I refer you to Matthew 5:17-19, where Our Savior himself says:  “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven”

Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience.  It’s nothing personal, “love the sinner but hate the sin,” and all, but I simply can’t serve anyone who would blatantly disregard God’s sacred law in such a fashion.  

Of course this would never happen.  People don’t not serve gays because they find it against God’s Law.  They do it, by and large, because “teh gays are icky.”  Jesus had dinner with prostitutes and tax collectors.  Get over yourselves.

March Madness Goes All Religious & Sh$!

Here it is the weekend of the Final Four. The nations sports corps descend upon Indianapolis Indiana for the March Madness that only the press can create.

So what is going on in Indiana this week besides planting and tilling? Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). That’s what.

The fine citizens of Indiana are quite certain that they protect business owners from having to do something in their business lives that they wouldn’t do in their personal lives. Be nice to gay people.

So they’ve done what any well intentioned community would do and that is to legislate ignorance.

They don’t want the government telling them what to do. So they passed a law allowing the government to tell them what they could do.

I agree with them. I don’t want the government telling me what to do either. I wish the IRS and all of Congress would stay out of my right to conduct business and commerce in a free market enterprise.

Since same-sex marriage is now legal in many states, these upstanding citizens do not want to be forced to recognize these legal unions. They look at it as undo influence of others’ into their personal religious beliefs. They find that disagreeable. So in an effort to keep the government out of their lives, they passed a law that allows the government into their lives.

Logical? Maybe.

But it’s backfiring drastically.

indiana_rfraOn the day this law was passed someone went down to the Secretary of State’s office in Indianapolis and got a business license to start a church for  cannabis

A new religion glorifying cannabis is officially incorporated in Indiana, and adherents plan to take full advantage of the state’s controversial religious freedom law.

That law – the Religious Freedom Restoration Act – generally bans state officials from burdening a person’s exercise of religion, “even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability.”

Bill Levin, founder of the First Church of Cannabis, as of Thursday morning the church has more than 21,000 Likes on Facebook.

Marijuana charges generally are pursued in state courts. But the new religious freedom law says the state cannot “substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion” except when the state uses the “least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.”

It’s unclear if officials or courts would deem marijuana prohibition a compelling government interest, or if they would uncritically accept the church members’ professions of faith.

So since there is much confusion on this I have found a graphic that outlines very clearly what I think we can all agree is a firm and sane look at what is and is not Religious Freedom.
