WATCH: Jon Stewart 'Shuts Up' Mike Huckabee's RFRA Comments


Jon Stewart had a few choice words for supporters of Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Jon Stewart didn't spare anyone his thoughts on Monday night's episode of The Daily Show when he hilariously criticized Indiana and the logistics of the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The new Indiana legislation, which has been the center of debate since its signing by Gov. Mike Pence on March 26, allows business owners the right to deny service to anyone (namely the LGBT community) who offends their religious beliefs. Naturally, this didn't sit well with Stewart, and he parodied the contentious RFRA in a segment he called "A Million Gays to Deny in the Midwest."

"I didn't realize that people in Indiana could not practice religion!" Stewart said sarcastically. "Apparently it has, up to now, been illegal. One of those quirky local laws, I guess."

The hysterical highlight of Stewart's soliloquy, though, came when he pointed out a drastic double standard in a recent interview former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee gave to CNN on Friday regarding Indiana's RFRA and similar bills in different states.

"The reasons that those corporations put the pressure on Indiana and Arkansas was because the militant gay community put the pressure on them," Huckabee said.

"Shut up!" Stewart said in response. "So when gays want equality, it's militancy, and when Christians want to deny service, it's freedom?"
