On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer voiced his opposition to any effort to clarify Indiana’s “religious freedom” law, warning that doing so will result in Christians in the state being pushed into slavery.
As Fischer explained it, when Gov. Mike Pence said that the law should be clarified to make clear that no business will have the right to deny services to customers, he seemed to be signaling that religious bakers or florists or photographers will be compelled to provide their services to gay weddings, which is unconstitutional because slavery was outlawed under the Thirteenth Amendment.
“I’m afraid Governor Pence is dangerously close to allowing the homosexual lobby to get the state of Indiana,” he warned, “to compel people to provide labor against their will. What do we call it when people are compelled to provide labor against their will? Involuntary labor, what do we call that, ladies and gentlemen? That is involuntary servitude, that is slavery, that is something that is forbidden by the Thirteenth Amendment”:
