    Similar, but not the same.

    It is not a fight for freedom anymore, it is a witch hunt! If Jay Inslee and Ed Murray believe undermining Indiana's tourism industry is a good way to make local inhabitants more tolerant I've got bad news for them. They can disagree with Indiana's decision but they have no moral authority to "impose embargo" on these people.

    RFRA was adopted by the legally elected representative of people of Indiana. It is democracy in action. If you want to live in a liberal utopia get out of America and let us make our choice.

    That may be true, but a lot of people in Indiana do not support the RFRA. I for one, am ashamed of my state and my legislators. If it takes the actions of other states to force the IN General Assembly to reconsider, I wont be complaining one bit.

    I am afraid you - as well as other citizens - will suffer from economic counteractions without any particular result. Anyway a swelling conflict between the states is not we are looking for.

    I love it when people cry and whine when they are held accountable for their actions. Indiana and anyone else who tries to discriminate behind the shield of religion will find out just how expensive Bigotry is in America today.

    Of course not. But this is the way that things are supposed to work: outside parties and private enterprises protesting in their own ways to force change. The economic repercussions will hopefully be minimal and will eventually work themselves out. The Gov. and legislators are already considering a clarification to the law, which is a step in the right direction

    How many of those nineteen states have identical laws?

    It looks as though the media and social focus on Indiana is having an effect.

    Gov. Pence proposes 'fix' to religious freedom law
    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence aggressively defended Indiana's religious freedom law Tuesday but said he wants a bill on his desk by week's end "making it clear the law does not allow businesses the right to deny services to anyone."

    "This law does not give anyone the right to discriminate," Pence said at a news conference. "But I can appreciate that that has become the perception."
    Not especially surprising is where Pence confirms everyone's suspicions that he is in fact a total asshole:

    He blamed "some on the left and, frankly, some in the national media" with forcing the state to consider clarifying the law.

    You'll notice that none of this, including Portland's mayor doing the same thing, is actually done by representatives of the people of those states. Just a few asshat liberal politicians making moves on their own without going through the people.

    Discriminating behind the shield of religion? Maybe, but the reason is somewhere deeper in mayors papers, don't believe this. Everything our officials do usually have the true meaning for their business first.

    This kind of thing is the marketplace at work in a way. The problem is that it punishes Hoosiers for the actions of the state government. Indiana is not going to become a blue state any time soon.
