One Million Moms Blasts Angie's List For Criticizing Indiana Law

One Million Moms, the xenophobic group with a headquarters in the 1600s, has singled out and blasted Angie's List for having the gull to criticize the discrimination of LGBT people. 

The befuddling email sent out Tuesday by One Million Moms reads:

Angie's List, the online service that provides consumer reviews of service professionals, publicly endorsed anti-Christian bigotry by opposing an Indiana law designed to protect religious liberties and freedoms. Last week, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) after the state legislature overwhelmingly supported it. Twenty states now have passed the law, with Arkansas and Georgia currently considering it. 

The Indiana law is identical in all fundamental respects to the 1993 federal RFRA signed into law by President Bill Clinton after it passed the U.S. House unanimously and the Senate 97-3. Unfortunately, Angie's List has joined with thousands of homosexual activists (including lesbian Ellen DeGeneres) in opposing religious freedom for all people in Indiana.

Angie's List is a bully, plain and simple. They have chosen to bully the city of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana and Christians everywhere by financial intimidation and threats. TAKE ACTION: If you have an account with Angie's List, we urge you to cancel it right away in defense of religious liberty in America. Be sure to let them know why you’re leaving. Even if you don't have an account, send an email to Angie's List CEO Bill Oesterle. Let him know that his company's support for religious discrimination is an affront to Christians.

According to One Million Moms, if you're against the discrimination of gay people you're automatically for discrimination of Christians? And if you're against the bullying of gay people, you, yourself are a bully? This is easily one of the most warped campaigns from One Million Moms (and that's quite the achievement) we've seen to date. Maybe the non-sense spewed forth in this email is a sign that they're grasping at straws, a sign that religion-based bigotry has been put on the defensive because that archaic and inhumane way of thinking is on its way out?

There should not be discrimination against any person. Esp those that are targetted. LGBT people need to be protected. Until it impedes someone elses rights as well. Religious peoples rights should not be violated, until it impedes someone elses rights. I would not want to be forced o do a job that goes against my personal, moral, or religious values. I would not want to try to violate LGBT persons liberties. This is sticky business. Its one and the same problem for both sides, just the sources of the violations are scandalous. That dude was right, where ate the convos and why arent we getting to know each other? Both sides know what its like to be set aside as unimportant, scandalized, and misunderstood. Speak the truth in love.

There is a separation of church and state according to the Constitution. There should not be ANY laws in regards to a religion or based on a religion, no matter what religion it is. I am a Roman Catholic by birth. I have had a discussion with one of the priests in the parish. He said that no matter who you are, where you come from, whether you're gay or straight, God loves all. I am not very religious myself, but if you're a Christian and you shun people away, YOU are the sinner. There are so many misinterpretations of the bible in modern times. God is love and if you don't believe in love, then you don't believe in God; therefore you're not a true Christian. I think all of this is disgusting. We shouldn't even be having a conversation about this in America! I spoke to a friend in the UK about this and she can’t comprehend it.

Here is a kicker. I think that all gays and lesbians in every state in the US should immediately start requesting a reimbursement from the federal and state governments for the tax dollars that they have paid. And not just this year's taxes, but all of the taxes that they have ever paid into local, state, and federal taxes. The slogan from the 1750s and 1760s "No Taxation without Representation" needs to be resurrected. Clearly, we are taking a serious step backwards in this country as it relates to civil liberties. Equally as clear, the legislators that have been voted into office are not acting as representatives of the GLBT communities. An entire subpopulation in my country is being completely disenfranchised and discriminated against. Not acceptable. This is a very sad time. We can't sit back and allow our government officials to discriminate like this. If we allow it we are no better than the Germans that turned a blind eye on what Hitler had done and allowed him to stay in power. We as American people are better than this discrimination. We take care of other Americans, of other people. It is time for our laws that protect from discrimination to just simply state that "discrimination in any form is not going to be tolerated in our country." That is what a Christian does. "No Taxation Without Representation!!

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) of Indiana is not identical to the federal RFRA.

I applaud Angie's List.

I always think its funny that a group called "one million moms" only has 69,338 members. They are a hate group.  Can't try talking reason to people who already have hate in their heart.

I went to their FB page, and the hate is just mind boggling. I don't understand how this org using the name of One Million Moms can support bigotry? As a gay male it saddens me that there is still so much hate against one being gay. I'm not a pedophile. I don't try to convert people. I believe in God. I pay my bills and taxes. I volunteer in the community. I try to be a good person every day, and if I lived in Indiana, I would know that I wasn't welcome. I just don't understand??? I feel like I'm back in the 60's when I was growing up. There is such a divide in this country. There needs to be a dialogue around being gay, black, Muslim, Christian, Transgender, Lesbian, conservative and liberal in this country. What it's like to be a veteran coming back from a horrible war in Iraq, etc. Why aren't we having these conversations? Why isn't there more of a focus on healing, and getting to know each other? I hope that the talk show hosts, politicians, sports figures, and celebrities use their powers to help people better understand each other.

One Million Moms, for those who are unaware, is a subsidiary of American Family Association, one of the largest US groups against LGBT values and principles.  This manufactured outrage should be expected and likewise disregarded for the hot air that it is.

What they (One Million Moms) fails to acknowledge is the Indiana law was written so broadly (with intent) that enables private citizens to go after one another and claim Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).  No other states that passed RFRA allows that, all other 19 states only permit private citizen vs government entity to qualify under RFRA.

Bravo #angieslist.  Bravo #salesforce.  Bravo to not tolerate this bigotry at its finest.

Buddhist here but I agree with you 100% Eric C, before I became a practicing Buddhist I was agnostic and I totally feel that if there is a higher power these so called Christians I thought believed, God is about love not hate!!
