    Pence to sign bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN)Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is set to sign into law a measure that allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers in the name of "religious freedom."
    Wow. WTF Indiana????
    You trying to out-religious the bible-belt states?
    Is Indiana becoming Mississippi2.0 or something?

    This is going to be interesting to watch.

    Conventions in Indiana? I've been to conventions all over the world, and never one there. I'm not sure how the threats to Pence are going to work...they said Arizona was dead after Brewer signed her bill into law, and tourism hasn't suffered there.

    I'll bet SCOTUS will overturn this easily.

    Business owners ought not to have to bend to every protected class. Especially ones that go against their personal faith.

    This is a backlash against the actions of unelected Federal judges who over-ride the wishes of the majority of a states voters.

    This is excellent news. Hopefully this reinforcement of the concept of liberty will spread. Kudos to Mike Pence

    This shouldn't require a bill.

    No business should ever be compelled to serve anyone.
