Look! Up in the sky! It's a plane: Indiana's RFRA

Hey Indianans, is this what you expected?

The GenCon gaming convention has sent a letter to Indiana governor Mike Pence threatening to pull its convention out of Indianapolis should Pence sign that Religious Freedom Restoration Act [RFRA] headed toward his desk; that RFRA, like most others pending around the country, would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people based on “religious” beliefs.

Gen Con—which has an attendance of almost 200,000—brings some $50 million dollars to the city.

But, I guess Mike Pence doesn’t think Indiana needs the money so … onward Christian Haters.

Yup, I hope the rights hate hurts the state to the breaking point and and the next election cycle sees a clean sweep.

More businesses need to do the same, let him know this isn't acceptable. Illinois would be happy to take them in (that is, if our new Governor doesn't follow suit! sigh)
