Indianapolis Star Demands Governor 'Fix' Religious Freedom Law

In the face of increased uproar and planned boycotts of the state of Indiana following the passage of the state's controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Indianapolis Star dedicated its front page Tuesday to a demand that Indiana governor Mike Pence "fix this now." In the newspaper's public plea, they write that the discriminatory nature of the RFRA can easily be repaired by passing new legislature expanding the rights of the LGBT community so that the two factions can "co-exist." In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Tuesday, Pence defended the bill, writing that 19 other states have already passed similar bills and that Barack Obama championed Illinois' version of the RFRA when the future president was a state senator there.
