Mellencamp: Religious Objections Law `Stain’ on Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Rocker John Mellencamp says Indiana's religious objections law is a “stain'' on his home state.
 
       Mellencamp posted a letter on his website Thursday panning the law as “ill-conceived.'' He says, “It is discriminatory, hurtful, and a stain on Indiana's national reputation.''
 
       Mellencamp says he thought seriously about canceling upcoming shows in Indiana, “but then I realized that I would be letting our government divide us again, keeping me apart from my most important audience: My Indiana fans.''
 
       The Indiana General Assembly approved revisions to the law Thursday and sent them to Republican Governor Mike Pence for his signature.
