The State of Indiana caused a bit of a stir online last week when Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration bill in to law. Its intent is to protect business owners from not being allowed to run their business in accordance with their faith. The perception of the law is that it will allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community.
It has many people, businesses, and entities concerned including the Indianapolis Colts. Team owner Jim Irsay tweeted the team’s position Monday afternoon:
The Colts have always embraced inclusiveness, tolerance, and a diverse fan base. We welcome ALL fans to Colts Nation. ONE FAMILY!— Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) March 30, 2015
