Now, Gov. Mike Pence seeks Clarification of the Religious Freedom Bill

Gov. Mike Pence thought he was a champion of the far right by signing that religious freedom bill in Indiana. But now, the fire is getting hot and the pressure is on!

Since the signing the bill into law, groups are ending ties with the state, a boycott is on the rise, and yesterday, there was a huge protest outside of the statehouse. With the reality of this mess coming on strong, Mike has decided to seek clarification of the bill, in hopes it doesn't discriminate against the LGBT community.

The governor told the Indy Star:
“I support religious liberty, and I support this law. But we are in discussions with legislative leaders this weekend to see if there’s a way to clarify the intent of the law.”
Hmm, so it's possible the bill could change a bit. But, would it be better to drop it? Just get rid of the stupid bill! His actions have already tarnished his legacy, he could savage some of it and drop it!

We will learn more next week once the General Assembly meets, but I love that the kitchen is getting hot for Mikey!

So, he never thought it needed clarification before?

Like when LGBT and equality groups said it would breed discrimination?

But now that people are turning away from Indiana and he's losing millions in revenue, suddenly he needs to be made clear?

Oh, and now that it looks like his chances of ever becoming a viable presidential candidate are over, he wants to be clear.
