You may have noticed some local businesses have put stickers on their front doors announcing that they do not discriminate. The stickers are part of a statewide campaign protesting the recent freedom of religion law. Many in the gay and lesbian community believe the new law will allow businesses to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation. Businesses that put up the stickers want their customers to know they won't discriminate and they are opposed to any business that does.

Jason Brewer of Fleur de Lis Gourmet Bakery says, “Me and my wife, me and the owners had talked about putting something up to let people know that we do want their business and that we’re not the type of business that’s gonna’ discriminate against anyone.” Thursday, the business we spoke with say that they have seen an increase in business since putting the sticker up on their front door.
