Indiana's RFRA: Glenn Beck's solution

When America has a dilemma, Glenn Beck invariably has a solution. 

This time the debate is about Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).  Indiana seeks “to prevent the government from forcing people to provide services that go against their religious beliefs.”  

An example of such governmental force would be requiring a baker to provide the cake for a gay wedding even if that baker believes gay marriage to be sinful. 

Those who oppose the RFRA state that it would foster, and even sanction, discrimination.  They add that religion is no excuse for prejudicial refusals.

Beck argues that government has no business meddling in private affairs such as marriage.  He adds, “Gay people have every right to get married, but they don’t have a right to    force people who disagree to be involved in the ceremony.”

Beck further states:  I’m not for discrimination against gays.  But I’m also not for          discrimination against religious people.
