Pence: ‘This Avalanche Of Intolerance That’s Been Poured On Our State Is Outrageous’ – CNS

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) says his state has been hit by an “avalanche of intolerance” ever since he signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act last week.

“George, look, the issue here is, you know, is tolerance a two-way street or not?” Pence told ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“I mean, you know, there’s a lot of talk about tolerance in this country today having to do with people on the left. But here Indiana steps forward to protect the constitutional rights and privileges of freedom of religion for people of faith and families of faith in our state, and this avalanche of intolerance that’s been poured on our state is just outrageous.”

Pence said the bill he signed is not about discrimination, nor is it about disputes between individuals unless government action is involved. He said the law is intended to empower individuals (as well as churches and businesses) when they believe the government is trampling on their religious freedom by requiring them to do things they oppose on religious grounds.

Critics say the new law will sanction discrimination against homosexuals.

“The Religious Freedom Restoration Act was signed into federal law by President Bill Clinton more than 20 years ago,” Pence noted. “And it lays out a framework for ensuring that a very high level of scrutiny is given any time government action impinges on the religious liberty of any American.”

Indiana is the 20th state to enact a law modeled after the federal legislation. Barack Obama voted for a similar law when he served in the Illinois State Senate.

Stephanopoulos asked Pence if the law will allow Christian florists who oppose same-sex marriage to refuse to serve homosexual couples, for example:

“George, the – the question here is if the – if there is a government action or a law that an individual believes impinges on their religious liberty, they have the opportunity to go to court, just as The Religious Freedom Restoration Act that Bill Clinton signed allowed them – go to court and the court would evaluate the circumstance under the standards articulated in this Act.

“That’s all it is. And when you see these headlines about – about Indiana, a license to discriminate in Indiana and – and – it just – I’m telling you, George, it is a red herring and I think it’s deeply troubling to millions of Americans and – and, frankly, people all across the state of Indiana who feel troubled about government overreach.

“This isn’t about disputes between individuals, it’s about government overreach. And I’m proud that Indiana stepped forward and I’m working – I’m working hard to clarify this.”

On Monday, Republican lawmakers in Indiana said they plan to add language to the state law to clarify that it doesn’t allow discrimination against gays and lesbians.

But neither Pence nor those Republican lawmakers support the inclusion of language making homosexuals a protected class under the state’s civil rights laws.

Obama’s Mindless, Anti-Catholic Rhetoric Prompts Irish Bishop’s Retort

Irish Bishop Blasts Obama For His Outrageous Attack On Catholic Schools – Gateway Pundit

Barack Obama told a group of Irish kids this week that Catholic schools “encourage division and discourage cooperation.”

.

Auxiliary Bishop Donal McKeown of Down and Connor in Northern Ireland blasted Barack Obama for his attacks on Catholic schools. McKeown accused Obama of a “hackneyed” analysis of the region’s political situation.

The Catholic Register reported:

A bishop in Northern Ireland accused President Barack Obama of a “hackneyed” analysis of the political situation in the region.

Auxiliary Bishop Donal McKeown of Down and Connor said some parts of the president’s June 17 speech in Belfast, Northern Ireland, echoed “the Protestant/Catholic caricature that has actually receded into the background in Northern Ireland.”

Obama was in Northern Ireland June 17-18 with leaders of the Group of Eight nations for a summit aimed at tackling controversial issues including the civil war in Syria and the global financial crisis.

Before the summit got underway, however, Obama addressed 2,000 young people and community leaders at Waterfront Hall and called for a renewed focus on reconciliation, 15 years after the Good Friday peace agreement.

Looking to the future, the president said, “if towns remain divided – if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden – that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”

Bishop McKeown said the 1998 accord “was clear that the core problem in Northern Ireland was a political one… It is significant that religion did not appear in the agreement on what is primarily a political problem.”

He said that “it is the Catholic schools in Northern Ireland that are now actually among the most racially and linguistically mixed. And, while so many young people are very open to new friendships and opportunities, it needs to be stated that it is adults outside schools who promote mistrust for their own political and personal agendas.”

“A simplistic denominational vocabulary fails to do justice to where we are,” added Bishop McKeown, who chairs the Northern Ireland Commission for Catholic Education.

“We all welcome the president’s presence,” the bishop said, “but would encourage his speechwriters to support a less hackneyed analysis of our situation and prospects.”

U.S. Catholics also slammed Obama for his divisive attack on Catholic schools.

What a trainwreck this president has become.
