1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

We must be steadfast in the defense of our soldiers and their ability to express and practice their faith.
If we will not protect that right for the brave men and women who fight for our freedom, it will vanish for the rest of us in a blink of an eye.

Let’s tackle it, brother...

A thread on the #GayWeddingCake decision, asking a simple question:

How can a gay guy support the Christian baker?

To the thread!
Let’s start with a scenario: I decide to get married. (Gulp)

First, I understand that society is evolving. My religion is evolving. My family is evolving.

That’s just life.

To those that reject me, I offer grace, love, & patience. In my quiet moments, I feel pangs of sorrow.
Yet a wedding only requires me, my love, & an officiant. Maybe a witness.

I don’t have the right to force anyone to join. That includes an Orthodox Jew or evangelical Christian to officiate.

My right to wed doesn’t trump their right to a sincerely held religious belief.

#SCOTUS ruled in favor of the baker in the Colorado same sex wedding cake case today. I'm leaving the legal analysis to the experts, but it is worth noting a few things. <Short thread> #Coloradobaker #ReligiousFreedom 1/4

Per the article above, this is not a wide ranging ruling on #ReligiousLiberty, although it's still not good news for #LGBT rights, and many people will probably *perceive* it as a wide-ranging decision. 2/4
There are details to consider to this ruling that are still coming to light. 3/4

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga…
