Olbermann to NCAA, NFL: Leave Indiana Over ‘Religious Freedom’ Law

On Monday’s broadcast of “Olbermann” on ESPN2, host Keith Olbermann responded to the news of Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Act, which is alleged to allow businesses to refuse to service to homosexuals according to some voices on the left.

According to Olbermann, we need to “keep our business elsewhere until the laws of hate are gone,” joining the likes of Charles Barkley and ESPN’s Ryan Ruocco, who have also stated that sporting events should be moved from Indiana until the law is changed.

“The NCAA needs to move the Final Four out of Indianapolis and the NFL must warn Indiana and the Colts. Because ultimately you and I have a choice. Do we participate in these laws or do we do only as much as even the narrow, prejudiced sports leagues of the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s did? Opt out. Stay away. Keep our business elsewhere until the laws of hate are gone.”
