Indiana Law Fights Gay Agenda — Religious Freedom

Amid screaming accusations of discrimination and intolerance from homosexualists, bureaucrats and their comrades in business, Indiana Governor Mike Pence just signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 101) into law to protect citizens from the increasingly rampant lawless judiciary sweeping the American landscape.

-- From "Gov. Pence signs Religious Freedom bill into law" posted at WANE-TV15 (Fort Wayne, IN) 3/26/15

Governor Mike Pence today issued the following [excerpts from a] statement after signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SEA 101) in a private ceremony.

“The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of religion but today, many people of faith feel their religious liberty is under attack by government action.

“Last year the Supreme Court of the United States upheld religious liberty in the Hobby Lobby case based on the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, but that act does not apply to individual states or local government action. At present, nineteen states—including our neighbors in Illinois and Kentucky—have adopted Religious Freedom Restoration statutes. And in eleven additional states, the courts have interpreted their constitutions to provide a heightened standard for reviewing government action.

“In order to ensure that religious liberty is fully protected under Indiana law, this year our General Assembly joined those 30 states and the federal government to enshrine these principles in Indiana law, and I fully support that action.”

From "Gov. Mike Pence signs 'religious freedom' bill this morning" by Tony Cook, Indianapolis Star 3/26/15

The measure could allow business owners to refuse services to same-sex couples and has set off a firestorm of controversy.

"This bill is not about discrimination, and if I thought it legalized discrimination in any way in Indiana, I would have vetoed it," the govenor added. "In fact, it does not even apply to disputes between private parties unless government action is involved. For more than twenty years, the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act has never undermined our nation's anti-discrimination laws, and it will not in Indiana."

The organizers of Gen Con, the city's largest convention, sent a letter to the governor Tuesday threatening to move the event elsewhere in future years if the bill becomes law. And the Disciples of Christ, a Christian denomination based in Indianapolis, said it would look to other cities for its annual convention if Pence signs the bill.

From "Pence set to sign 'religious freedom' bill into law" by The Associated Press 3/25/15

The proposal has drawn criticism from several business groups and convention planners who worry that it presents Indiana as an unwelcoming state and who are asking Pence to veto the measure.

Backers say the proposal is aimed at protecting religious freedom and preventing the government from compelling people to provide services for activities such as same-sex weddings that they consider objectionable.

Supporters also say discrimination concerns are overblown because the bill is modeled after a federal religious freedom law Congress passed in 1993 and similar laws are on the books in 19 states. However, the current political climate is far different than it was when most of those were approved because the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule this year on whether gay marriage bans violate the Constitution.

The bill has already passed the Indiana House 63-31 and the Senate 40-10. It would pass into law whether Pence signs it or not. He would have to veto the measure to stop it.

From "Indiana Governor To Sign Controversial Religious Rights Bill" by Tierney Sneed, U.S. News & World Report 3/25/15

Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is poised to sign into law a controversial religious religious freedoms bill that critics – including groups typically aligned with Republican interests – say is discriminatory towards gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

"I don't believe this legislation truly represents our state or our capital city," [Indianapolis Mayor Greg] Ballard, a Republican, said Wednesday in a statement, according to the IndyStar. "We are a diverse city, and I want everyone who visits and lives in Indy to feel comfortable here."

Some of the Indiana's biggest employers – including global pharmaceutical firm Eli Lilly and Co., diesel engine manufacturing company Cummins, tech giant Salesforce and aluminum producer Alcoa Inc. – have come out in opposition to the bill, as has the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

Adding more scrutiny to the bill is the upcoming NCAA men’s basketball Final Four championship, which will be held in Indianopolis. Jason Collins, the first openly gay athlete in the NBA, tweeted, “[I]s it going to be legal for someone to discriminate against me & others when we come to the #FinalFour?”

From "Salesforce CEO joins late effort to stop 'religious freedom' bill" by Jared Council, Indianapolis Business Journal 3/25/15

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff late Wednesday joined a last-ditch effort by at least a dozen Indiana tech company executives to persuade Gov. Mike Pence to veto the controversial "religious freedom" bill, even as Pence made clear he planned to sign the measure Thursday.

Benioff, along with six other Indiana tech CEOs, co-signed a letter opposing the measure. When asked about his participation in the effort, Benioff said in an email to IBJ: "We will be forced to dramatically reduce our investment in Indiana based on our employees' and customers' outrage over the Indiana religious freedom bill."

The letter was authored by Jon Gilman, CEO of Indianapolis-based Clear Software, and addressed to Pence. It includes the signatures of Scott McCorkle, CEO of Salesforce Marketing Cloud, and John McDonald, CEO of CloudOne.

Several corporations, including Cummins Inc., have for weeks decried the measure as it advanced through the Legislature. But in recent days, tech executives in particular have gone public with their sentiments, many labeling it as damaging to their efforts to attract and retain tech talent in Indiana.

From "Indiana governor to sign law that allows businesses to turn away gay customers" by CNN Wire Service 3/25/15

The [bill signing] comes as Pence considers a bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination — and just a year after Pence and socially conservative lawmakers lost their first policy battle against gay Hoosiers. In 2014 they had sought to amend Indiana’s constitution to ban same-sex marriages — but were beaten back by a highly-organized coalition of Democrats, traditionally right-leaning business organizations and fiscally focused supporters of Pence’s predecessor, former GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels.

If Pence decides to mount a dark horse presidential bid — which looks increasingly unlikely as candidates like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker court the same supporters he would need — the “religious freedom” bill could give him a boost among GOP primary voters, especially in socially conservative states like Iowa.

They’d hoped it would become Pence’s “Jan Brewer moment” — a reference to the Arizona Republican governor who vetoed a similar bill last year, saying “it could divide Arizona in ways that we could not even imagine and no one would ever want.”

Male Teacher Suddenly Female, Shocks Calif. Parents

Administrators at Chino (California) High School are remaining silent in response to an outcry by parents upset that neither they nor their children were notified in advance that upon leaving school on Friday, chemistry teacher Michael Swager would show up at school on Monday dressed as a woman.  School officials say that gender appearance is the teacher's private matter, owing no explanation to the taxpayers.

-- From "Parents Say District Should Have Told Them About Teacher's Gender Transition" by Tony Shin, KNBC-TV4 (Los Angeles, CA) 3/20/15

Parents at an Inland Empire high school are raising concerns after they say they were left in the dark about a teacher’s decision to pursue gender reassignment, although many say they are supportive of her choice.

Viviana [Vasquez, student,] said school officials did not explain to her what was going on, leaving her and many other students uncertain on how to understand what was happening. They were especially surprised last week, when she said Swager starting dressing as a woman and calling herself Amanda.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Chino Valley Unified School District said they couldn't comment because it’s a personal and private matter for the teacher.

From "Nobody Bothered To Tell Parents This Teacher At Their Kids’ High School Had A Sex Change" by Eric Owens, Education Editor, Daily Caller 3/22/15

Swager noted that his gender reassignment probably wasn’t a surprise for anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to his appearance. He said he hopes parents aren’t angry with the school district for failing to notify them.

Swager, whose name was Michael before he changed it to Amanda, said local school district officials have been tremendously supportive.

Swager’s Chino High webpage has been changed to add an image of Swager’s new feminine look. The page calls Swager “Ms. Swager.”

From "Teacher revises gender identity" posted at Chino Champion 3/23/15

Amanda Swager, 32, known for the last six years as 6-foot, 6-inch Michael Swager at Chino High, made the decision this summer to stop presenting herself as a man at school.

Her students were informed of the impending change March 13 in the first few minutes of class. Ms. Swager explained the medical reasons behind the decision, and Chino High principal Felix Melendez reminded the students to be respectful, that the decision would not be talked about in class because class time is about academics, and that the conduct of the class will not change.

Mr. Melendez also said counselors would be available if students had questions or concerns.

“Chino High School is aware of the teacher’s decision,” district spokeswoman Julie Gobin said from a prepared statement. “It is a personal and private matter for the teacher. Therefore we cannot comment further.”

'Husband' Impregnates Both 'Married' Lesbian Wives

A pair of lesbians and their common male lover of Oakland, California who were "married" as a "poly fidelitous triad" last summer say that society needs to accept their definition of family because “in all honesty we think having two moms and one dad is the perfect way to raise a child, in a home full of love,” said Melinda Phoenix—lesbian, mother, and wife (of both a woman and a man).
“Even sex is great as if one person is not feeling up for it, then there are two other people to choose from.”

Of course, having three parents in one bedroom does present some unique challenges. “We just need a bigger bed,” Dani [Phoenix] said. “We are all co-sleeping with the babies as well and at the moment the only way Jonathan [Stein] fits is if he lays horizontally at the bottom of the bed.”

-- From "Two Moms, One Dad: Parenting In a Polyamorous Family" by Rachel Bertsche, Writer, Yahoo! News 3/12/15

Melinda and Dani Phoenix became domestic partners in a 2010 California commitment ceremony, before gay marriage was legal in the state. A year later, the pair fell in love with a man, Jonathan Stein, and added him to their union in an unofficial marriage ceremony in 2014. Now Melinda and Dani are a polyamorous couple — both wives consider Jonathan their husband — and all three are in a romantic relationship.

Recently, the Oakland trio got two new additions to their family. In September 2014, Melinda gave birth to a son, Oliver, and one month later, Dani had a daughter, Ella Lynn; Jonathan is the father of each. “We just made sure we timed things correctly and prayed our wishes would come true,” Melinda said. “I found out I was pregnant on January 14th … and two weeks later we all let out a scream of pure delight when we found out Dani was expecting, too. It was just so special experiencing pregnancy with the woman I love going through it at the same time.”

Today, all three consider themselves parents to both Ella Lynn and Oliver.

Jonathan, Dani, and Melinda are a polyamorous family, which means that they all believe in having more than one partner.

The trio and their two children all live under the same roof, with all three parents sharing every aspect of parenthood, from nighttime feeds to diaper changes.

'It might seem strange to a lot of people, but to us it makes perfect sense,' Melinda, 28, who runs her own healing company, East-West Collaborative Health, told Daily Mail Online. 'We all love each other and it was our dream to fall pregnant at the same time.'

Until Dani met Melinda in 2008, Melinda had only been in monogamous relationships with men, while Dani had enjoyed relationships with both men and women.

'When Melinda first told me she was missing a man in her life I thought "Why aren't I enough?"' Dani confessed. 'But the more we spoke about it, the more I realized there could be huge advantages to having three of us in our marriage.

'The hard part was finding a man we could both fall in love with.'

Miraculously the girls didn't have to wait too long for their dream husband to come along.

From "Polyamorous Oakland family finds parenting easier with two moms and a dad" by Amy Graff, San Francisco Chronicle 3/11/15

. . . they’re sharing their story to raise awareness about polyamorous families and hope that some day these arrangements can be widely accepted and legally recognized. With children entering their picture, they feel gaining support from the community is more important than ever.

Polyamory is a term used to define people who love multiple partners at the same time. A polyamorous relationship can range from a married person with multiple love interests to an informal group marriage. Some engage in group sex while others have one-on-one sexual relationships with multiple partners.

Polygamy falls under the polyamory umbrella and refers to a structure with one man who dominates over two or more wives. In a polygamous relationship the wives don’t have an intimate relationship. The Stein-Phoenix clan is different because Melinda and Dani are romantically involved and all three partners are viewed as equals.

A 2009 Newsweek article reported that more than a half-million people prefer a more populous relationship over the traditional two-person one, but some researchers say the numbers could be much higher due to underreporting.

Sexting Epidemic: Indiana & IL Schools, Police Say

Schools have turned to local police across America to deal with a reportedly widespread addiction to an overtly sexualized culture within public schools.
"It is not surprising. I feel like it is all they talk about. It is all they ever think about."
-- Cord Ratliff, graduate of Michigan City (Indiana) High School

"We spend a lot of time on educating students on the use of technology, and we will continue to educate them."
-- Jennifer Kelsall, Superintendent, Ridgewood High School (Norridge, IL)

"This social media stuff is going to tank this whole generation if somebody doesn’t do something about this. It’s just crazy. I see what’s going on with these younger kids, and yeah, I think I can believe it. They’re just out of control. There’s nobody stopping them."

Police have issued a warning about alleged "widespread" sexting among high school students in Michigan City, Ind.

Police say numerous students are sending sexually provocative pictures to other boys and girls, and they sometimes request a photo in return.

Officials explain this is still considered child pornography, even among juveniles, and that teenagers need to be reminded of the consequences.

Police interviews revealed another female student, a 17-year-old Ridgewood junior — allegedly sent out nude self portraits to several classmates.

The four facing charges include the two girls, who police said took and sent the inappropriate selfies, along with a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy who distributed the photos. The photos were seen by "more than a few kids," according to [Norridge Police Det. Chuck] Tortorello.

The 17-year-olds could have faced more serious charges — possibly felonies — if they had been 18 when they distributed the photos, Tortorello said.

"For an adult who sends a nude photo of a juvenile, it could have been serious — serious enough that you could end up in a penitentiary," Tortorello said.

Lesbians Attack Ohio Christian Videographer

When Courtney Schmackers, proprietor of Next Door Stories in Bexley, Ohio (a suburb of Columbus) was asked by Jenn Moffitt, 33, and Jerra Knicely, 34, to video their "wedding" ceremony, Schmackers declined the work citing her Christian beliefs.  Not surprisingly, the lesbian couple took to the Internet to trash Schmackers' business and then asked the Bexley Chamber of Commerce to enjoin the battle.  The Chamber promptly agreed to devise a new sexual-orientation policy that would deny religious liberty to area businesses.

Ohio currently does not allow same-sex marriage, and its anti-discrimination law does not include sexual orientation. However, a number of municipalities and cities, including Columbus, have ordinances that prohibit sexual-orientation discrimination. Bexley is not among them.

In Bexley, [homosexualists'] criticism also has been directed at the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce, where President Colleen Krupp said the organization is “like the vast majority of chamber organizations nationwide” in not having a non-discrimination policy that applies to membership.

However, she said, the chamber board “believes that discrimination in any form is wrong and should not be tolerated” and is working to implement an anti-discrimination policy that would include sexual orientation.

In a statement, Bexley Mayor Ben Kessler said: 'Bexley, Ohio is a community that embraces diversity and welcomes businesses, families and individuals of ALL sexual orientation, race, religion, age, nationality, ethnicity, disabilities, socio-economic levels, etc. As an employer and a provider of services to our residents, we extend that same openness and inclusivity.'

Moffitt and Kincely reached out to the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce through its Facebook page about five weeks ago to file a complaint against the business. They also shared their story on Facebook to raise awareness and get the attention of local officials.

The Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce addressed the incident on its Facebook page. Even though it does not have a nondiscrimination policy that applies to membership, the organization said it does not tolerate discrimination "in any form."

After reviewing the situation, the organization sent a letter to its members saying its board is in the process of rewriting its policy to forbid applicants and current members "from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender, gender expression, age, ancestry, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status."

"The Chamber Board believes that discrimination in any form is wrong and should not be tolerated," the board said in the letter, which it shared on its Facebook page. "As we revise this policy, we plan to seek input from our membership as well. We hope to have these new policies in place very soon."

Additionally, the Bexley Chamber of Commerce does not prohibit its members from discriminating based on sexual orientation.

The Bexley Chamber of Commerce issued a statement through Facebook on Monday condemning Schmackers' refusal of service. The post continued by stating that board members have decided that the chamber's policy must be changed so that this type of "discrimination" does not happen again.

"At our Feb. 11 board meeting, we discussed in detail how the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce could ensure this does not happen again.

Atheists Force Michigan Schools to Ban Christians

The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists (MACRA) has recently successfully intimidated several school districts into eliminating accommodations of parents, clergy or any citizen intending to mention Christianity, from meeting with students at schools during free time anywhere on campus, including in vehicles in the parking lot. At one school, one-third of all students were banned from voluntarily participating in Christian discussion in the gym during lunch time.

The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists says Fremont Public Schools has agreed to end monthly afternoon Bible study sessions at Daisy Brook Elementary School. Superintendent Ken Haggart told the group that clergy will no longer be allowed to offer or conduct religious instruction classes on school grounds.

The civil rights association had complained that the sessions violated a law banning religious activities on school property during school hours.

The civil rights association says it took action on behalf of concerned parents.

The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists said Wednesday, March 18, it took action on behalf of concerned parents with children attending Cross Creek Charter Academy. The K-8 school, 7701 Kalamazoo Ave. SE, is managed by National Heritage Academies.

In February, [MACRA's Mitch] Kahle also complained to Hudsonville Public Schools that it was inappropriately allowing students to attend a Bible Club in a recreational vehicle in the parking lot during lunch hour.

Cross Creek Principal Joe Nieuwkoop said the academy allowing the clubs to utilize school space during recess was not to support a particular church or religion or to violate the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution, according to his March 13 response to Kahle's complaint. He said the adults were not school employees.

"As such, student religious groups or gatherings led by adults will not be allowed to hold meetings during school and/or instructional hours. However, students may organize prayer groups, religious clubs, and gatherings before or after school to the same extent that students are permitted to organize other non-curricular student activities groups."

State law prohibits ministry meetings on-campus during the school day.

Smith said the district discontinued the practice and contacted Bible Club Ministries International-Western Michigan, which as provided the instruction for years, to let them know of the policy change.

Mitch Kahle, who led a drive against a cross on city property in Grand Haven, contacted the district after a parent complaint to the civil rights group, Smith said. The district was informed that the violations were occurring at multiple elementaries, including the South, Park and Bauer buildings. Kahle could not be reached for comment Friday.

Superintendent Ken Haggart spoke with WZZM 13 Wednesday regarding an earlier statement he gave to the Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists. In that earlier statement, Haggart had said all clergy were permanently banned from Fremont Public Schools and no organized religious activities will be allowed on school property while school is in session.

Haggart tells WZZM 13 News he later sent this second email to MACRA, clarifying the school's policy:

"I wanted to let you know as well that Fremont Public Schools neither encourages nor discourages participation in any religious program. By saying 'clergy are banned' we are referring to the offering or conducting of religious instruction classes. In the event of school tragedies, or needed counseling, or for clergy who have children attending FPS, or other use of the facilities, they are of course welcome to visit our schools."

. . . Haggart says the school has returned to its original arrangement in which students are transported off campus to local churches for Bible study. Kahle says the superintendent tells him a local church will be providing transportation, not the school district.

. . . He says one out of every three children in the elementary school is involved in Bible study, for a total of approximately 150 children. Those children are now split into two groups, which are transported to churches on two separate weeks once a month.

Catholic Religion Teacher Suspended: Too Biblical

Patricia Jannuzzi, a theology teacher at Immaculata High School in Somerville, New Jersey was forced by her employer to scrub her Facebook page for espousing Biblical views on marriage and homosexual behavior.  The Catholic School has placed her on administrative leave because her views are "completely inconsistent with our policy and position as a Catholic Christian community."
"I was in a bunch of things where I would interact with her and I thought she was a very warm person. She was just really into her faith, and that's always how she's been."

In a statement provided to NJ Advance Media, the school said it took "immediate action" and "mandated that the teacher involved permanently de-active her Facebook page."

"The opinions reflected in these posts do not in any way represent the philosophy, mission or student experience of this high school," the statement said. "... Through our investigation, we have determined that the information posted on this social media page has not been reflected in the curriculum content of the classes she teaches."

He said in the letter that he remembers Januzzi's classes to be "focused on love and acceptance" but that he is "offended and disappointed" by her recent posts.
