Anyway, that shouldn't matter. It's only COMMON SENSE to Not Judge someone for thier religion.

Indiana is such a backwards 'old fashioned' state it usually takes at least 20 years for the rednecks to catch up with the rest of the counry.
This place is ran by a bunch of hippocritical, backstabbing republicans that think thier shit don't stink. You're going to need a damn Good lawyer to win a case in Noble County. Probably one out of county or state. If you don't have money, you're screwed. But, if you have money you could possibly win. That's just the way it is. Contact the UCLA.

You are right there! Lagrange and Noble county are run by a bunch of wealthy, hypocritical republicans that live some fantasy life based on their warped interpretation of the Law.

They steal the poor blind in the name of justice, like any of them would know what that is! 50 years behind already and falling behind faster and faster each day. Sad place to raise children!

I'm from Indiana and the guy is right, you know it! People get fired from their jobs here everyday because of conservative religious bigots!

Well speaking of just this case, I know both the men and rice really was not fired because of religious discrimination.

Falsifying paperwork, lying and forcing religious bigotry is wrong no matter where a person lives. The rich and powerful do not and should not control the poor!
Get rid of the religious bigots and create a free country where everybody lives in peace!
