Indiana Gov. Mike Pence: We'll 'fix' religious freedom law

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) on Tuesday insisted his state's controversial new religious freedom law was not meant as a back door to allow people and businesses to discriminate against gays and lesbians. But acknowledging the public furor the law has created, he said the state would soon seek tweaks to ensure such discrimination could never happen.

"There was never any intention in this law to create a license to discriminate," Pence said on Fox News. "And we'll clarify that in the days ahead and we'll fix this and move forward."
