Indiana’s religious freedom laws are the ones allowing business owners to not serve members of the LGBT community due to conflicts with their religious beliefs.

Sharpton then added, “That same fight is with us today. And we can’t let it stand.”

“This is a key moment for the country,” he said. “Too often in our history, we’ve seen religion used to justify attacks on other people’s rights, from slavery, to Jim Crow, to women’s right to vote.”
