John Fugelsang on Indiana law allowing businesses to refuse service to LGBT…
And Mike Pence just threw Indiana under the bus again.

WASHINGTON — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) refused to say on Sunday whether it should be illegal under state law to discriminate against gays and lesbians.
Pence appeared on ABC’s “This Week” to defend his decision to sign a controversialpiece of legislation intended to protect religious liberties that critics say will enable discrimination in the state. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow individuals and corporations to cite religious beliefs in private litigation. Pence’s decision to sign the bill into law has sparked backlash against the state.
In the interview, Pence dodged a question from George Stephanopoulos about whether the law would allow florists and bakers to deny their wedding services to gay couples by citing their religious beliefs. He also twice dodged a yes-or-no question on whether he believed it should be legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians under state law.
Have I got this right – he wants to protect religious liberties by allowing those *christians* to discriminate against anyone who disagrees with them or anyone who is not the same as them?
Even Jan Brewer was smart enough not to pass that poisoned piece of legislation!
