EXCELLENT! Despite Criticism, Arkansas Passes Religious Freedom Law Today!!

Well, Arkansas isn’t going to be frightened by the radical gay lobby. The Natural State just passed its own version of an Indiana-like Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The bill was passed today even after hundreds of left-wing protesters filled the state capitol to try and force the legislature to dump the bill.

Arkansas lawmakers have given final approval to a religious-freedom bill that has drawn sharp criticism from opponents who say it opens the door to state-sanctioned discrimination against gays and lesbians.

The House voted Tuesday to approve the measure, which prohibits the state and local governments from infringing on a person’s religious beliefs without a “compelling” interest. The measure now heads to Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who has said he will sign it into law.

If enacted, the move will make Arkansas the second state to enact such a law this year. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed a similar bill last week, and 19 other states have comparable measures on the books.

We’ll see if Ark. Gov. Hutchinson has the guts to sign this into law.
