Bill Donohue has written a letter to NCAA president Mark Emmert commenting on legislation signed yesterday by Indiana Governor Mike Pence that affirms religious liberty.
Emmert is alleging that the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act would abridge the rights of homosexuals, though he provides no evidence to support this claim. Consequently, he is threatening to pull all future NCAA events from Indianapolis. Indianapolis is home to next week’s Final Four basketball tournament; it is also home to the NCAA’s headquarters.
Donohue tells Emmert that if he does not change his position, he has “a moral obligation to raze all of the lavish buildings that comprise the NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis and set up shop someplace else.”
