Three University Presidents Speak Against “RFRA”

By Network Indiana | Published on in Uncategorized

The presidents of DePauw, Butler and Indiana universities are condemning Indiana‘s religious freedom law.

Saying he stepped into the controversy with “a certain degree of apprehension,” Butler President James Danko said he was nevertheless compelled to do so after hearing from the community, prospective students, parents and employees.

DePauw University President Brian Casey said legislation that has the effect of either encouraging or condoning discrimination must be addressed.

IU President Michael McRobbie says the damage already done to Indiana’s reputation is such that all public officials and public institutions need to reaffirm a commitment to the Hoosier values of fair treatment and non-discrimination.
