White House Criticizes Religious Freedom Laws In Arkansas, Indiana

 

(Washington, DC)  --  Presidential spokesman Josh Earnest says religious freedom laws in Indiana and Arkansas are contrary to the values of a majority of Americans.  Earnest told a briefing that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson was clearly responding to a growing public outcry when he said he would not sign a bill without changes.  Republican Hutchinson had previously said he would sign the bill that Arkansas lawmakers approved, but said today it needs tweaking before he will allow it to move forward.  

The Arkansas law is similar to a law signed in Indiana that critics say could lead to discrimination against gays and lesbians.  Indiana is confronting a growing business backlash over the law
