IN and AR Guvs Sign "Fixes" To "Religious Freedoms" Bills To Allay Discrimination Concerns

In Indiana and Arkansas Republican Governors signed bills into law today which are intended to end a burgeoning controversy over whether their legislature's passage of religious freedom legislation also allowed discrimination against LGBT people. Both Governor Mike Pence and Governor Asa Hutchison are both well-known as hostile to the civil rights of LGBT people, with both politicians expressing opposition to the rights of same-sex couples to be married so it is with some degree of schadenfreude that LGBT equality activists like myself have watched the increasingly loud furor engulf both politicians, snuffing out the presidential ambitions of one (Pence) and badly damaging the reputation of the other (Hutchison).
