The editorial reflected the firestorm surrounding the state's newly passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).
Pence, a possible Republican 2016 presidential candidate, signed the law last week after it was approved by the Republican-controlled legislature. Critics as well as some supporters have said the law could allow businesses to refuse to serve homosexuals on religious grounds.
This leaves a real bad taste in my mouth. I am not gay, nor do I have a gay relative (that I know of), but this is very discriminating. What's next, refusing to serve muslims due to religous beliefs? Or Catholics refusing to serve Lutherans? What if due to my religous beliefs, I feel I should not serve blacks?
It's not that the bible says "thou shall not serve homosexuals", so this is clearly allows a religion to take what actions it desires based upon it's own translation of any religous documents.
This is a very regressive law, I'm surprised it passed.
