Indiana's recent Religious Freedom Restoration Act has cause a bit of a stir. Political leaders such as Clinton, business leaders such as Benioff and Cook, celebrities as well as protestors have all claimed this law will be used for the purpose of discriminating against gays.
But why do they believe this? 19 states already have virtually the same law without any serious controversy or cries of discrimination after the fact. Moreover, all of these laws are essentially the same as the federal RFRA which was introduced by the liberal Chuck Schumer, championed by the liberal Ted Kennedy, and signed into law by the liberal Bill Clinton (with no comments that I could find from Hillary at that point). So why are people complaining about it this time?
