Wow! Gen Con fires a shot across the bow of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) over the proposed Religious Freedom bill.

And the Gov's office tells Gen Con to stuff it too.  This should be interesting:

Update:  Mr. George Takei has weighed in.  He is specifically calling for a boycott:

I am outraged that Gov. Pence would sign such a divisive measure into law. He has made it clear that LGBT couples, like Brad and me, are now unwelcome in his state. The notion that this bill was not driven by animus against our community is belied by the record and frankly insulting. I will join many in demanding that socially responsible companies withdraw their business, conferences and support from his state and that LGBTs and our friends and supporters refuse to visit or do business with Indiana. It is a sad day for the Hoosier state, and indeed for the many good people of Indiana, for whom this law now stands as a terrible blight upon that state's reputation.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law on Thursday a measure that allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers.
