The Blaze: “Hysterical Reaction” to Georgia’s Religious Liberty Bill Led by Corporations and Liberal Activist Groups

The Blaze’s Matt Walsh has a blistering critique of Georgia’s failure to implement basic protections for religious organizations and highlights the corporate effort to undermine religious liberty:

Hollywood was leading the charge, with heavy hitters like Disney, Time Warner, Starz, The Weinstein Company, AMC, Viacom, Marvel, CBS, MGM, NBC and other companies threatening to boycott if the bill passed.

The NFL [2nd Vote’s blogpost on the NFL here] got into the action, promising to bar Atlanta from hosting the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, the league hopes to expand into China in the near future, where it’s illegal for gays to be depicted on television, much less get married in real life. But I suppose you can’t ask for moral consistency from a league that employs Greg Hardy.

Many other massive corporations like Coca-Cola and Apple came out swinging against the bill, and every major sports team in the area – the Braves, the Hawks, the Falcons — condemned it in no uncertain terms.

Naturally, all of the radical gay groups like the Human Rights Campaign and GLAAD shouted from the rooftops about the apocalyptic repercussions of allowing the First Amendment to continue existing in Georgia.

Read the rest of the piece here for Walsh’s analysis of how today’s unfortunate outcome should concern conservatives and Christians who believe in the freedom of conscience and free exercise of religious beliefs.

2nd Vote has highlighted the corporations joining Georgia Prospers business alliance that opposed religious liberty in Georgia.
