'Religious freedom' laws

An Indiana "religious freedom" law has some people concerned that it will allow businesses to turn away people based on their sexual orientation and justify that discrimination based on their religious belief.


Indiana isn't the only state. It's the 20th to adopt a "religious freedom restoration" law, and it’s just the latest case to bring this heated discussion back into the news.  Other states, like Georgia and Arkansas, are considering similar laws.


Whether you're a business owner, LGBT resident or just anyone who lives in Indiana, we'd like to hear what you think about the law. What are your fears once the law goes into effect? And business owners, will the law change the ways you do business? Or, if you’re from another state with one of these laws, how have you been affected?
