are there any who discriminate and are planning to move to Indiana?
I think people in haste to argue that this law is going to make the gay sky fall forgot to check if there is actually a problem afoot.
personally, I'd wager about 99.99999999999999999% of Indianans would act correct, regardless of this law....I can't fathom that whole state being chock full of anti-gay bigots just chomping at the bit waiting for a "permit" to discriminate.
The only GOP Presidential not "standing his ground" behind Pence is Kasich--still with 75/1 odds.
Why do you discount the reaction of corporations and businesses WITHIN the state of Indiana?
Those that have long stood with and donated to the GOP.
Considering how many jobs Illinois has lost to the right-to-work-for-less Indiana, we'll gladly take some of them back.
Elections have consequences--Indiana voters (and non-voters) chose these clowns.

A religious freedom law was passed to protect religious liberties that were never endangered and that sparked a protest of people concerned about discrimination that has not and likely will not occur.
It sounds to me like everyone got what they wanted.
Doctors' faith must yield to gays' rights, court says - latimes
Doctors may not discriminate against gays and lesbians in medical treatment, even if the procedures being sought conflict with physicians' religious beliefs, the California Supreme Court decided unanimously Monday.Benitez v. North Coast Women's Care Medical Group | Lambda LegalThe state high court said the doctors' constitutional rights to freedom of religion did not trump the state antidiscrimination law because the state has a compelling interest in ensuring full and equal access to medical care.
Don't you "practice" in California? You probably "practice" in Baja California because the issue of sexual orientation as it concerned abortificients was settled in California 7 years ago. Unless of course you believe this ruling means that doctors can still discriminate against straights, which is laughably absurd, doctor.For nearly a year starting in August of 1999, Guadalupe "Lupita" Benitez was denied infertility treatment by the North Coast Women's Care Medical Group because she is a lesbian. Her former doctors are conservative Christians who claim their religious beliefs give them a right to withhold care from Benitez that they routinely provide to heterosexual patients. With Lambda Legal's help, Benitez has been fighting this injustice. The case is currently before the California State Supreme Court The highest state court in the state court system on the question whether individual antigay religious beliefs allow doctors to violate the state civil rights law that applies to commercial businesses, including for-profit medical clinics like North Coast Women's Care.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
