Those of us who pay attention to the criminal-justice/police-militarization blogosphere all just... gasped... at this:
The Indiana version of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act has gotten far more attention than I'm sure its crafters anticipated. The pro-GLBTQ left excoriated Indiana as having passed a law thinly veiled to support individual bigotry against homosexuals and other non-heteronormative identities by invoking the tenets of religion.
Once again, I will try to maintain a regimen of putting metaphorical pen to even more metaphorical paper as a journal of my thoughts and a venue for conversation. Thank you for your indulgences.
