Tuesday's front page of The Indianapolis Star
The backlash over Indiana's new license-to-discriminate law continues to grow, with the state's largest newspaper, The Indianapolis Star
, set to come out against this hate legislation on Tuesday morning with a front page editorial
demanding "Gov. Pence, fix 'religious freedom' law now."
We are at a critical moment in Indiana's history.
And much is at stake.
Our image. Our reputation as a state that embraces people of diverse backgrounds and makes them feel welcome ...
Only bold action — action that sends an unmistakable message to the world that our state will not tolerate discrimination against any of its citizens — will be enough to reverse the damage.
Meanwhile, Gov. Pence has an op-ed
in The Wall Street Journal
, where he repeats his lies
about this "religious freedom" bill and mewls that:
I abhor discrimination. I believe in the Golden Rule that you should "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." If I saw a restaurant owner refuse to serve a gay couple, I wouldn’t eat there anymore.
Uh huh. And yet he signed a bill that could allow that very thing to happen.
