An Indiana judge handed religious conservative groups a loss in their lawsuit challenging the so-called “fix” to the state’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA.

The RFRA fix said the 2015 law’s religious freedom defense couldn’t be used to justify denying service to someone based on characteristics such as age, race, sexual orientation or gender identity.

At his State of the State address, Gov. Pence said he would not support any legislation restricting Hoosiers' rights to religious freedom.
