Seattle Mayor Prohibits City Employees From Traveling to Indiana After Religious Rights Law
According to the liberal mainstream media this is the most important news story in America this week.
Last week Indiana enacted a law that prevents the government from compelling people to provide services such as wedding photography for same-sex weddings or other activities they find objectionable on religious grounds. The mainstream media says the law is bigoted against gays.
Nineteen other states have laws similar to the law passed in Indiana including Illinois, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
But Indiana is a red state.
Leftists are now boycotting the state of Indiana.
ABC News reported:
The mayor of Seattle today prohibited municipal employees from traveling to Indiana on city funds, as the backlash spread against the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s decision comes in response to the law signed Thursday by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence that allows businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.
Murray said Indiana’s new law “doesn’t reflect the values” of Seattle.
“Seattle has been a leader in the fight to protect civil rights and ensure equality for all people — no matter who you are, or who you love,” Murray said today in a statement.
“This is why I am ordering that none of our taxpayer dollars should go toward supporting this discriminatory law,” Murray’s statement continued.
