Recently, Indiana passed some legislation, stating that employees could refuse service to someone on religious grounds, which was clearly targeting the LGBT community.

On Monday, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard let it be known that this is NOT okay and put an executive order into place which states that EVERYONE must follow the city's human rights ordinance, if the business receives government funds in some way. He also called for the state's civil rights laws to include the LGBT community "immediately."

NCAA President Mark Emmert kicked off the overall discussion, saying that he was "very concerned" about any sporting events being held there, including the Final Four, because of the discrimination in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, & More Speak Out Against Indiana's New LGBT Discrimination Law!

no title

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!

Why?

Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.

Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!

But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

See some of the best responses (below):

Oh and women can no longer vote!

He rescinded an executive order that protected state employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This man literally undid the good that former Governor Kathleen Sebelius did for the LGBT community in Kansas.

The Mormon Church Comes Out In Support Of LGBT Legislation… Well, Sort Of!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikGIFs

no title

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), also known as the Mormon Church, has always had a strained relationship with the LGBT community.

For some dumb reason, LGBT and religion don't always mix well.

That's why it's so great that the Mormon Church is supporting LGBT nondiscrimination legislation!

The Mormon leaders had a rare news conference and that's when they announced their support for the LGBT nondiscrimination bills!

Sister Neill Marriott of the LDS Church's Young Women's program said:
