Ky. Lawmakers Slap Down Beshear's Veto Against Religious Freedom

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear got a sound rebuke from the Democratic-controlled House and Republican-controlled Senate, which both overwhelmingly overrode the veto of the Governor concerning the religious freedom bill.

One thing the people of Kentucky need to understand is when you get a Democrat in power, they'll strike out against the faith community, as Beshear did. Even some Democrats of principle who opposed Obamacare were strong-armed into signing on to the legislation, which either cost them in the next election or they refused to run again, knowing they would lose in a landslide.

We in Kentucky need to take a much more critical look at Democrats in the state, as they are increasingly revealing a strong liberal bent which Kentuckians need to vote against.

When Beshear said Christian religious freedom was a threat to the Commonwealth, we saw, possibly for the first time, the outright antagonism he and the Democratic Party have for people of faith in Kentucky.

The arrogant Beshear refused to back down though, confirming the above concerns, saying, "As I explained in my veto message, I have significant concerns that this bill will cause serious unintentional consequences that could threaten public safety, health care, and individuals' civil rights."

The Democratic-controlled House passed the bill 79-15 and the Republican-controlled Senate voted for it by a 32-6 margin.
