Applauding the Indianapolis Star for Their Coverage of Indiana's Discriminatory "Religious Freedom" Law

As a one time Hoosier myself, with family and friends I love living in Indiana, I was particularly disgusted by Indiana's passage of a twisted version of the RFRA that has been around since the early 1990s. I want to take a moment to congratulate the Indianapolis Star for their coverage of this legislative failure. Keep up the good work and keep things hot for Governor Pence. He and his cronies deserve it.

For a history of the RFRA and what it became for Indiana (and what it might become for other states), see: http://www.indystar.com/story/news/politics/2015/03/30/look-history-religious-freedom-laws/70648294/

Here's an article on Indiana's five Republicans who voted against this wretched bill: http://www.indystar.com/story/news/2015/03/30/meet-indiana-republicans-voted-rfra/70568776/
