RFRA Fix: Indiana

 Indiana In LGBT Rights Battle

Republican leaders of the RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) have offered a solution to the bitter dispute that occurred in the wake of the Indiana legistlation being signed into law by Mike Pence on March 26th 2015.

Among other issues, attention was drawn to the fact that Indiana did not have a statewide public-accommodation law that covered sexual orientation.

In its original form, the legislation could have legally protected employers, landlords and business owners who discriminate against the LGBT community, based on their religious beliefs.

It has been proposed that a change will take place within the bill that will not allow such discrimination. Brian Bosma, speaker of the state House, is quoted to have said: “we value you — gay, straight, black, white, religious, nonreligious. We value each and every Hoosier.” The bill is aiming to reflect this.
