Angie's List opposes religious freedom in Indiana

Angie's List, the wildly popular website featuring reviews of local businesses, recently stepped into the debate over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in Indiana by announcing they were not following through with a $40 million expansion of the company in the state, in protest of the new law. They joined several companies who planned boycotting the state of Indiana over the law, which they say allows for discrimination against gays. Supporters of the law say it merely protects many from violating the tenets of their faith.

Now, The National Organization for Marriage has started a campaign against Angie's List for their intolerance of the Christian faith. They have started a website,, to organize a protest. Organizers posted this statement on the site:
Angie's List has announced that they are halting a $40 million expansion of their facility in Indiana to protest passage of the common sense religious liberty bill. Angie's List thinks that attacking the rights of Christians and other faiths is smart business, so we're showing the business community the real effects of attacking religious liberty. Join us in dumping Angie's List!
Organizers ask that Angie's List customers leave a final review, stating they are cancelling their subscription because of the company's stand against religious freedom. They also ask that supporters sign a petition which they will deliver to Angie's List. In the first few days of the petition drive, over 1,000 signatures had been collected.

  1. One more reason not to use Angie's List. Too bad-she stuck up for Bill O'Reilly too! I am building a house and would have used her list. Not any more!!!
