INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana’s five Catholic bishops are reacting to the state’s religious objections law with a statement saying no Hoosiers should face discrimination, whether it’s over their sexual orientation or for living their religious beliefs.

Indianapolis Archbishop Joseph Tobin and Bishops Timothy Doherty of Lafayette, Donald Hying of Gary, Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend and Charles Thompson of Evansville released a joint statement Wednesday supporting “efforts to uphold the God-given dignity of all the people of this state while safeguarding the rights of people of all faiths to practice their religion without undue burden from the government.”

They say every person should be treated with dignity and respect and that the rights of one person should never be used to deny the rights of another.

Indiana has approximately 750,000 Catholics.
