Indiana Senate Passes ‘Religious Freedom’ Bill

By Tony Cook

INDIANA---The Indiana Senate approved “religious freedom” legislation Tuesday on a 40-10 party line vote. The legislation is intended to protect people with strong religious beliefs, but has raised questions about the dividing line between religious freedom and discrimination. The bill has become a rallying point for conservatives disappointed with last year’s defeat of a proposed constitutional same-sex marriage ban and subsequent federal court decisions that effectively legalized gay marriage in Indiana.
