Big names urge conservatives to rally in defense of Indiana’s religious freedom law; it’s ‘absolutely vital’

Dr. Ben Carson is not intimidated by the left’s pretend fury over the Indiana Religious Restoration Act and called the need to defend it “absolutely vital.”

Carson, a potential 2016 presidential contender, told Breitbart News Monday that he fully supports Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s new law – especially considering the religious persecution around the world.

“As Americans, we have an obligation to denounce these acts of persecution. For when we stand up to such intolerance, we are defending the root of our freedom, both at home and abroad,” Carson said.

“It’s absolutely vital that we do all we can to allow Americans to practice their religious ways, while simultaneously ensuring that no one’s beliefs infringe upon those of others. We should also serve as champions of freedom of religion throughout the world.”

The left has come out in force against Indiana’s religious law, claiming it discriminates against gay people.

Pence has been on a media tour defending the law that was enacted with the purpose of providing a legal avenue for anyone who claims the government is infringing upon their religious freedom.

Television and radio host Glenn Beck of the Blaze said Pence did a horrible job of explaining the law’s true meaning when he was grilled by George Stephanopoulos last weekend.

Beck said Pence should have been more firm and said, “I’m not for discrimination on gays, but I’m also not for discrimination on religious people.”

Beck argued that Pence wasted his time in the interview by repeating that that the law doesn’t discriminate against gays instead of explaining how the law protects all citizens.

“Nobody is for discrimination against anybody,” Beck said. “Diversity doesn’t happen when everybody believes in the same thing.”

Beck said Pence should have turned the left’s argument on its head, and told Stephanopoulos that if people want to get married they can get married.

He added, “Does my church have to marry gay people? No.

“Do you have to get married in my church? No.

“Do you have the right to find a church that’ll marry you? Yes.

“Diversity comes when we have different opinions, we lead different lives,” Beck said.
