Arkansas is about to pass its own discriminatory "religious freedom" law

It’s been a hellish few days for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who made the horrible decision to sign his state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law. Now, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchison may be about to make the same mistake. 

The Arkansas House and Senate have both passed a RFRA nearly identical to Indiana’s, allowing individuals and businesses to express their “religious freedom” without penalty – even if it means discriminating against LGBT people or anybody else. We should know for sure whether Hutchinson will sign it by around 11:30 EST today. 

The perils Hutchinson faces were made clear Tuesday morning when Pence insisted he’d “fix” Indiana’s law to make sure it doesn’t allow businesses like Christian florists or bakers to turn away gay and lesbian customers – which the bill’s conservative supporters had said was one of their chief goals.

“Was I expecting this kind of backlash? Heavens no,” Pence said.

Following Indiana, Arkansas becomes the second of what could be a spate of states to add religious freedom laws to their books this year. There are 14 other states considering similar proposals this year, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. […]

The other states where religious freedom bills have been introduced are Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Those efforts have stalled, though, in North Carolina and Georgia.

Not an April Fool’s joke. An actual real thing, that could actually become law in roughly a third of the country. How.
