A bill called ‘Religious Freedom Restoration’, recently approved by Indiana’s Senate Judiciary Committee, was signed earlier today by governor Mike Pence. The bill’s authors stated its aim is to protect business owners whose religious beliefs prevent them from providing services to gays and lesbians.
“Christian bakers, florists and photographers” were given as examples of businesses that are said to benefit from the new law, adding that they “should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual marriage!”.
Opponents, however, claim the law will legalize discriminations against homosexuals.
