Arkansas' turn?

The next key issue in the anti-RFRA effort is whether as much shit hits the fan in Arkansas as it has in Indiana. Recent events in Indiana will only work as a deterrent if legislators in other states believe that if they pass a similar law they would face a similar backlash. If Arkansas passes a similar law and there is less of a response, then Indiana becomes an anomaly rather than a cautionary tale.

If the Arkansas bill is really like RFRA in Indiana (as opposed to the federal law and the law in other states), then let the shitstorm descend on Little Rock!
