  • UPDATE – BREAKING: Indiana Senate Committee Kills Anti-Gay 'RFRA On Steroids' Bill

    At an Indiana Senate Rules Committee hearing Wednesday morning the extreme anti-gay bill that would repeal and replace last year's disastrous legislation with something worse has died.

    This article has been updated in full.

    Indiana Republican State Senator R. Michael Young's SB 66, anti-gay legislation that would repeal last year's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, including the legislative "fix" that had to state the law could not be used to discriminate against LGBT people, is dead. Sen. Young's bill would have codified into law the right to discriminate for any reason, including and especially for religious reasons, and the right to carry a gun.

    Because Sen. Young used language so sweeping and broad, his bill was being described as the original RFRA "on steroids" by Freedom Indiana.

      Were they going to ban gay people from having guns? So when crazy christians want to kill gay people they won’t be able to defend themselves? The radical right is getting crazier and more extreme by the minute.
