Ron Lowe: Indiana law flawed from the start

Republican Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana signed a blatant anti-gay bill called Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law. This law is not about religious freedom, the law is a piece Republican legislative bigotry and discrimination.

The law allows businesses to refuse service to gays, lesbians and bisexuals. Does everybody see how flawed the law is right off? How are business owners to make judgment calls as to who is or who isn’t gay? That’s how ridiculous the law is. That Gov. Pence signed this bill into law seems suspect.
