IN Gov: “It Was Never About Discrimination”

National News
(NBC News) Indiana’s governor now says he will change his state’s new religious freedom law.

The statement comes less than 48-hours after telling the nation he would not give in to such a fix.

A chorus of critics fears that the law opens the door for Indiana businesses to refuse service to customers based on sexual orientation.

That fear spread to a national outcry.

The CEOs of major American corporations, from Apple to Marriott to Nike and Levi-Strauss, spoke out against the law, voicing concerns of doing future business in Indiana.

Even the NCAA, headquartered in Indianapolis, is coming out against the act, just days before the state’s capitol city hosts the men’s college basketball championship.

Governor Pence plans to make it clear that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act does not give businesses a right to deny services to anyone.

Some say that clarity can’t come soon enough, before the spotlight of the “Final Four” shines on the Hoosier state.
