Both sides remain divided on LGBT rights ahead of session

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Advocates on both sides of the debate over the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents remain divided ahead of the upcoming legislative session.

Lawmakers sought recommendations at a Tuesday hearing. It followed failed efforts last session when Indiana drew opposition to a religious objections law critics said would lead to discrimination against gay people.

Advocates of LGBT rights want to make it illegal to deny housing, jobs or service because of sexual orientation or gender.

Opponents say that would deny their religious rights by forcing them to condone same-sex marriage.
