WATCH: Don Lemon Calls Out 'Disingenuous' Indiana Lawmakers


The out CNN anchor isn't letting Indiana lawmakers get away with claiming they didn't know RFRA would result in discrimination.

In a segment on CNN, out anchor Don Lemon questioned Indiana lawmakers who insist their version of the "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" doesn't purposely discriminate against LGBT people.

"Let's be honest, to say that this law is not discriminatory is disingenuous at the very least," said Lemon in a segment called "Don's Take." "The law doesn't protect religious freedom, it allows someone the ability to impose their religious views on to someone else."

Lemon talked about his own upbringing to help make the point.

"As someone who was raised in the Christian tradition, I don't know about you, but I was taught to offer love instead of condemnation," he said, before repeating a refrain well known in Christian churches. "Love the sinner, hate the sin."

He points out that if Indiana lawmakers weren't trying to use the law to discriminate against LGBT people, they passed up chances to make that clear by voting down amendments that would have made it impossible to use the law to discriminate against LGBTs.
