Mike Pence’s RFRA 2.0 Already Receiving National Attention
INDIANAPOLIS – In case you missed it, Mike Pence last night chose to continue his longstanding discrimination against equality when he double-downed against the call for across the board protections for the LGBT community. Pence’s move wasn’t from a governor – it was from an ideologue who actively promotes discrimination against LGBT Hoosiers.
And now, the national media are picking up on RFRA 2.0. From tip sheets in Washington, D.C. to nationally recognized news organizations, RFRA 2.0 has the same makings of last year when Mike Pence chose to put the state in a $250 million economic panic while also throwing Indiana’s “Hoosier Hospitality” reputation in jeopardy.
