I read about this yesterday. Governor Pence I believe is the 31st governor to sign this type of legislation. It is basically the same legislation that Bill Clinton signed as Religious Freedom Act. What brought Indiana to this point had much to do with Obamacare and the legislation that forced religious organizations to provide services against their faith. Notre Dame was engaged in several lawsuits against the government over that issue. Then the several lawsuits against business owners being forced to provide services in regard to a marriage they find to be a sin. So states have been shoring up their laws to protect those of all faiths being forced to go against their moral conscience.
