Hour 1: John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, and Steve Oh hosting. Indiana governor Mike Pence accepted the fixes to the Freedom of Religion law to quell the outrage over their legislation to allow discrimination against gays. Indianapolis went into disaster mode by trying to welcome gay and lesbian supporters and their businesses for tourism. The huge gamer convention GenCon goes there annually, generating $50 million for the city. Twitter activity from Iranian residents show gleeful selfies in front of the TV as Obama spoke about the the framework of a deal with Iran over their nuclear program. Happiness from Iranian residents will surely annoy Conservatives in America. U.S. Sugar in Florida wanted to show grassroots support for their desire to avoid the state from buying land for environmental purposes, so they sent out an ad for actors to play protesters on their behalf. The Tea Party and U.S. Sugar teamed up to get these “supporters” on board for $75.

Hour 2: Ana replaces Iadarola on the panel for SCS stories. Georgia is considering its own version of discriminatory legislation towards gay citizens. Videos of a flower shop owner that vows to discriminate, even if the law tells them not to. The florist even said she would serve and adulterer because its not the same kind of sin as being gay. Steve explains the logic of Jesus dying on the cross to excuse everyone’s sin. Missouri State Rep is proposing legislation that would not allow food stamp recipients to buy steak or seafood with the governmental assistance. Ben rants about how this Rep decided to go after the least powerful people in society by trying to control them to make their lives even worse.

Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. A proposed deal has been reached between world leaders and Iran to neutralize their enrichment of uranium for a nuclear weapon. Videos of Obama announcing how this deal works to rid Iran of their march to create a nuclear weapon. Cenk sifts through the details of the deal. Videos of KT McFarland baselessly declaring that the deal is simply a pinky promise with Iran. After Indiana caught hell for passing discriminatory laws against gays in the form of religious freedom, a proposed fix to the law has been introduced to specifically create a caveat that excluded gays from the discrimination. Cenk points out that they’ve ironically given gays special protections from the discrimination the law created. The new law would allow people to discriminate against anyone else except gays. Tom Cotton brings both topics together when he defended the discrimination proposal in his state by comparing it to how badly Iranians treat their gay citizens.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Video of Pat Robertson giving his 2 cents on the anti-gay laws in Indiana. Memories Pizza has been flooded with comments and negative reviews since they came forward claiming they’d discriminate against gay couples. The website memoriespizza.com was bought and filled with gay images and jokes about their pizza. Cenk thinks its time to calm down the attacks on these pizza guys. The Atlanta teachers that were busted for cheating on their students’ tests have been convicted of racketeering, which could send them to prison for 20 years.
