    And that's why Pence is doing a 180 and going to work to change the law to make sure it does not allow discrimination of gays and lesbians.

When this was discussed as part of the legislative process, it was pointed out that the legislation in Indiana would allow discrimination against LGBTs unless the law was changed to prevent it. The legislature chose not to change it. So, yes, huge difference.
    So you presume to know the intent of both Obama and the entire legislature of Indiana and the intent of the Governor. That's just awesome.

    The best part is: it'll all be moot soon in Ind. as the governor says the the legislators will amend the law to state unequivocally "no one can be refused service."

    So it's actually going to strengthen the laws against discriminating against g&l - the exact opposite of what the bigoted lobbyists pushing for the bill wanted.

    He is doing that to protect his state. The liars won.

He was caught in his lies and now is trying to do damage control
    This sounds like complete hokum to me. I've read about this, and I didn't find anything of such a nature in any of my readings. It sounds to me like some people want an issue, and it also sounds like complete BS.

    I am greatly relieved. What special compensations are due to me? Let me hasten to add that they need not necessarily be financial in nature.

    We know who helped write the bill -- and why.


    And the pussy Pence signed it in private (no press or public allowed) -- but these folks were there - cheering him on...

    All of those CEO's with their army of lawyers were all wrong about this law and how it was written?

    Or some here are wrong and being naive and/or partisan about the true intent of the law.

    Ummmm? Which to believe?

    Have you been discriminated against on account of race, color, creed, sex, or national origin (or sexual preference if you are in a state that has those protected classes) ?

    You're protected as being one of those classes of people - in every instance.

    The CEO's and their lawyers are in the business of controversy-avoidance. They knew there would be an assault.
