This post is a little less critical than usual, but I'd like to ruminate a bit. I've got to say that I'm quite surprised by (and proud of) the rapid and vociferous response to the so called Religious Freedom Restoration Act in my previously-adopted home state, Indiana. It's also heartening that the backlash seems to have affected similar legislation in Arkansa and my current home state, Georgia. Like much surrounding the public opinions regarding LGBT* issues, the surprising thing is not that attitudes are changing but that they are changing so quickly and, moreover, that the changing beliefs seems to be motivating political behaviors in a day of Facebook likes, Tinder swipes, and Instagram hearts. Given these rapid changes, it will be interesting to see where things head from here--especially if SCotUS rules stupidly.
