Angie's List isn't the only one expressing "ZOMG WTF?" at Indiana's new law that straight up gives businesses the right to discriminate if they want to.
"We are putting the 'Ford Building Project' on hold until we fully understand the implications of the freedom restoration act on our employees, both current and future.
Angie's List is open to all and discriminates against none and we are hugely disappointed in what this bill represents." — Angie's List CEO Bill Oesterle
Shucks. They were about to break ground on a campus expansion there in a few days and now are scrambling to find a new place to build. It's worth it to make a stand for equality, though.
But it's not like anyone else really cares, right? OR ACTUALLY:

OUCH. Nick Offerman is pretty much an Indiana hero because of "Parks and Recreation," which is set in Pawnee. He's taking a pretty strong stand here.
Indiana's governor might think he's pretty tough right now, but it's kind of cool to see all the people rising up to tell him what's up. Who will step up and shun Indiana next?
