INDIANA---An Indiana House committee today approved controversial religious freedom legislation that could protect business owners who don't want to provide services for same-sex weddings. Despite better organized opposition to the measure, the House Judiciary Committee voted 9-4 to send the measure to the full House for consideration. Supporters say Senate Bill 101 would add legal protections for people with strong religious beliefs, including business owners who don't want to provide services for same-sex wedding ceremonies.
