One of the rallying cries of opponents of Indiana's religious freedom law is that people shouldn't be discriminated against because of "who they love."
But radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh flipped that around on his show on Wednesday.
Critics of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act say it allows people to use their religious beliefs to discriminate against gay people. Proponents say it only allows business owners to refuse to perform their services, such as at same-sex weddings, if doing so is a violation of their faith.
Limbaugh noted that gay-rights advocates argue against the law saying, "Why are you so upset just because of who people love? … It's discriminatory to care about who people love . . . Why are you objecting to it?"
Limbaugh said the phrase works both ways, because people who have strong religious convictions love their Lord.
"I can tell you right now, I could mention I love somebody and it wouldn't be accepted," he told his audience. "I would be called a bigot and any number of other bad names. All I would have to do is say, 'I love Jesus Christ.'"
