Gay drinking fountains, too?

Now that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has signed a bill giving business owners the right to discriminate against gay and LGBT customers on "religious liberty" grounds, he is facing a heavy rebuke from the state's major employers and a lot of others who don't think his action will help the state's welcoming image.

Pence says the bill is not discriminatory, but a means to protect religious freedom.

Next question, Gov:  Where does religious freedom end and the true meaning of religious tolerance begin? 

At least he could be honest about it, a virtue in itself, and admit that he's pandering to the Religious Right in his state.  Will the next step be separate drinking fountains for straights and gays?
