Some Purdue Faculty Members Want The State To Ditch RFRA

Some faculty members at Purdue University want the state to ditch its religious freedom law, perhaps putting the school‘s president in an uncomfortable position. Purdue‘s Faculty Senate voted 52-to-4 to call on the legislature to repeal RFRA. “We believe State Enrolled Act 101, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, will harm our ability to recruit and retain students, staff and faculty,” read the resolution. Purdue president Mitch Daniels has avoided commenting about his successor as governor.  The faculty vote was held three weeks after the bill was signed into law  by Governor Mike Pence.
