Here’s a tweet straight from Indiana’s Department of Wishful Thinking. Gov. Mike Pence, who utterly fumbled his defense of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, has signed a “clarification” of the law for those outraged masses who likely never bothered to read the text of the original, triumphantly declaring the whole mess “behind us.”
As promised, the rewrite explicitly states that Indiana’s law is not a license to discriminate.
The amendment to the legislation specifies that it does not “authorize a provider to refuse to offer or provide services, facilities, use of public accommodations, goods, employment, or housing to any member or members of the general public on the basis of race, color, religion, ancestry, age, national origin, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or United States military service.”
So, is everyone happy now?
