As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie put it, the deafening silence the national media heard from the conservative movement when word leaked out from the Trump campaign that Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence is to be Donald Trump's running mate speaks volumes about how far Pence has fallen in the estimation of conservatives since he became Governor of one of the country’s most reliably Republican states.

The Week Mike Pence’s 2016 Dreams Crumbled

Adam Wren, Politico

In a hastily called news conference on Tuesday, Pence—usually keen on playing the happy warrior in public—looked wan and defeated, though his hair was still shaped into its perfect and immoveable silver part. At some turns, in a dulcet tone, Pence employed a humble tack, suggesting the law needed “a fix” and admitting that his defensive performance in a Sunday appearance with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” likely made things worse

Ind. Gov. Mike Pence approves new homosexual rights in religious freedom law

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday approved a clarification to the state's religious freedom law that will bar businesses and individuals from using the law to refuse employment, housing, or service to people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Here Are All the Athletes, Celebrities, and CEOs Against Indiana's RFRA

Miley Cyrus, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and former NBA star Charles Barkley are just a few of the high-profile figures condemning a law signed by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday, which critics say will give businesses the option to discriminate against homosexual customers on religious grounds.

Quin Hillyer’s Take: Pence Just Caved On RFRA

Our good friend Quin Hillyer has a late breaking piece in National Review Online claiming that Indiana Governor Mike Pence has caved to the radical homosexual lobby and is about to demand the legislature pass a bill “clarifying” his state’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

The Indiana RFRA Battle – It’s Time to Free America’s Christian Slaves

To force someone to do labor against their will is the very definition of slavery and that is nothing less than what the radical homosexual lobby and their secular liberal allies have been using courts across America to do. We urge you to join us in demanding that Indiana Governor Mike Pence and the state’s legislative leaders, State Senate President Pro Tempore David Long and Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma, stand fast behind Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act – sign our petition and tell them it’s time to free America’s millions of Christian slaves. 

Supporters of Indiana RFRA silent out of fear of 'bullying,' law's architect says

Jordan Fischer, 10News.com (ABC)

Republican lawmakers in the Indiana House and Senate have said for months that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act enjoys large support among their constituents. Now, facing a political crisis unlike the state has ever seen before, the question must be asked: Why haven't those supporters spoken up?

Ensuring Religious Freedom in Indiana

Indiana Governor Mike Pence, The Wall Street Journal

As governor of Indiana, if I were presented a bill that legalized discrimination against any person or group, I would veto it. Indiana’s new law contains no reference to sexual orientation. It simply mirrors federal law that President Bill Clinton signed in 1993.

Liberals Want the Right to Persecute Christians

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

No one would seriously expect that the government could force one of the Hollywood stars opposing Indiana’s “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” to play an opponent of same-sex marriage in a movie, or that government could force one of the pop stars now boycotting Indiana to write a song opposing same-sex marriage, or that the government would fine an atheist artist for refusing to paint a religious painting if the commission was offered. The demand that bakers, photographers, florists and others actively participate in same-sex weddings represents a new and frightening chapter in the Left’s war on Christians because there is a fundamental difference between merely selling goods to homosexuals, which all are willing to do, and using your creative energies and talent in the service of something that violates your Christian beliefs.

The demand that bakers, photographers, florists and others actively participate in same-sex weddings represents a new and frightening chapter in the Left’s war on Christians because there is a fundamental difference between merely selling, cookies, cakes, brownies and other goods to homosexuals, which all are willing to do, and using your creative energies and talent in the service of something that violates your Christian beliefs.

Did Indiana Really Exit Common Core?

To some observers it looks like Indiana's conservative Gov. Mike Pence led the way in making Indiana the first state to abandon the Washington-driven Common Core education standards that were initially embraced by more than 40 states. And Pence supporters say the Hoosier state is now on the way to a unique set of state standards, but Hoosiers Against Common Core and others who oppose "Obamacore" say, "not so fast Mike."
