Out CNN anchor Don Lemon on Tuesday criticized an Indiana bill that supporters say protects religious freedom but critics argue targets the LGBT community.

In a segment titled Don's Take, Lemon took a stand against the law that opponents say will open the door to discrimination against gay men and lesbians.

“Let's be honest, to say that this law is not discriminatory is disingenuous at the very least,” Lemon told his viewers. “The law doesn't protect religious freedom, it allows someone the ability to impose their religious views onto someone else.”

After facing a week of intense criticism, Republican Indiana Governor Mike Pence retreated and asked lawmakers to “fix” the bill he signed. However, Pence repeated that he's opposed to adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected classes in the state's civil rights laws.

“It should be make clear that Indiana, the Indiana House, had the opportunity to include language that implicitly barred discrimination against the LGBT community,” Lemon said. “Democrats say they proposed it and they say the Republicans declined. And now here we are.”

“The state stands to lose millions,” he added, a reference to the business community's opposition to the bill.
