Conservatives Ready 'Religious Freedom' Bills In Hobby Lobby's Wake

Conservatives Ready 'Religious Freedom' Bills In Hobby Lobby's Wake | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

The Associated Press reported this weekend that social conservatives believe they have an opening to bring the state's religious freedom bill back in 2015. The legislation failed this spring; it passed the House, but stalled in the Senate after significant backlash from business groups. It would have prevented businesses from being sued if they refused to serve LGBT people for religious reasons.
