I’ve been trying to make some sort of excuse in my mind for Indiana. I don’t like to believe that people are just plain evil.

I have been listening hard to Governor Pence, parsing his words, trying to be fair, to see the other side, to make sense out of his statements that this law has just been blown out of proportion.

But hell, I come from a Jewish family. We’ve been here before, and this kind of “logic” is way too familiar.

Excuses are made, explanations are offered, people want you to see their side. They don’t want you to think they are being evil.

But in the end there is no excuse, and there is no religious exemption for discrimination.

This is just evil.
