Indiana Gov. Mike Pence says he never expected the uproar that has resulted from Indiana's new religious freedom law. He's taken to the talk show circuit, most recently on CNN Tuesday, vowing to "fix" the law so it does not allow discriminate against gays, lesbians, and others based on sexual [...]
