INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is getting some blame from fellow Republicans on how the state’s new religious objections law is being perceived around the country.

House Speaker Brian Bosma said Monday that Pence raised the specter of the law permitting discrimination against gays and lesbians by not directly answering questions on the subject during a Sunday national television interview.

Pence was asked at least six times during the ABC interview whether the law would allow a merchant to refuse to serve gay customers.

Bosma says the law doesn’t endorse discrimination against anyone. Senate President Pro Tem David Long says Pence should’ve stated that message on Sunday.

Long says he disagrees with a “small tribe” of law supporters who say it permits such discrimination.
