    indiana caves on "RFRA", michigan governor says he would veto any "RFRA"

    Looks like the backlash paid off, shanty pizza joints notwithstanding:

    "The compromise legislation specifies that the new religious freedom law cannot be used as a legal defense to discriminate against patrons based on their sexual orientation or gender identity."

    Indiana governor signs amended 'religious freedom' law

    Surely in response, michigan governor rick snyder did a very rare thing and revealed he would veto legislation ahead of time:

    "Given all the events that are happening in Indiana, I thought it would be good to clarify my position," he said. "I would veto RFRA legislation in Michigan if it is a standalone piece of legislation."

    Snyder: I would veto a religious freedom bill

    Good news.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    this makes the "protesters" look rather silly, actually.

    they were told from the outset that this bill didn't permit discrimination, and the swift clarification simply proves that was correct.

    Wrong. Nice try though. The additional language is what makes it so it doesn't permit discrimination.

    matches the federal religious freedom act, but applies to the state. Now it doesn't allow private companies to discriminate and then claim religion as a reason for it when they're sued.

    Personally, I think all these laws should be overturned, but at least now indiana is no worse than the fed'l govt

    it was never a permit to discriminate... not ever.

    y'all were told that from the beginning.. and then Pence and the Indiana legislature had to go back and spell it out for the mental midgets.

    congratulations, the only thing of substance you accomplished was making a pizza parlor family richer... well done.
