Next Stop for HomoFascist: Smash Religious Exemptions

It's likely that Wisconsin will be a target of the next HomoFascist campaign.

Revelations that a half dozen well-heeled liberal foundations are pouring millions of dollars into a concerted campaign to force religious organizations to accept same sex “marriage” have defenders of religious rights warning of a new “wave” of litigation. 

“Attacking religious exemptions is the next big wave,” Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, told LifeSiteNews....

... The Evelyn & Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, the Gill Foundation, the Proteus Fund, the David Bohnett Foundation, the Arcus Foundation, and the Ford Foundation have contributed $4.8 million to the cause of suppressing religious rights...

Surprised to see that the Rockefeller Foundation isn't there....yet.

The strategy is simple.

...Sweeney [a homosex activist] warned the Out & Equal Executive Forum that victory was not complete with the Supreme Court decision overthrowing state laws defending traditional, heterosexual marriage. The homosexual and trans communities “face a new set of threats around religious exemptions to laws that protect us and our families,” he said....

...Peter Breen of the Chicago-based Thomas More Law Center told LifeSiteNews that states which have not pass laws legalizing same-sex marriage are particularly vulnerable to legal action restricting religious exemptions. Ironically, wherever states passed same- sex marriage laws, they included protection for religious freedom.

But states which never legalized same-sex marriage also never provided exemptions from anti-discrimination laws for Christians—whether bakers, or universities or churches with Scout troops. So States with old  laws on the books intending to protect heterosexual married couples from discrimination will now cover same-sex marriages too....

That was the entire point of crushing the Indiana RFRA law--on which the (R) Governor of Indiana caved like a paper suit.

You've been warned.
