State Sen. Josh McKoon: 'The only discrimination that's going on in this state is against people of faith'

"The only discrimination that's going on in this state is against people of faith. This law is the law of the land in 31 states. It's the law at the federal level."

State Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus, criticizes companies who chose to speak out against the "Preservation of Religious Freedom Act," a stalled Senate bill that would've allowed businesses to discriminate against different types of people, including members of the LGBT community, because of religious beliefs. A conservative group has now formed in response to boycott corporations such as Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, and Home Depot. (via WABE)
