US governor rejects bill deemed anti-gay

The Republican governor of the US state of Georgia said Monday he would veto a “religious freedoms” bill that sparked a protest movement amid accusations it would infringe upon gay rights. Major American corporations such Disney joined a push to get Governor Nathan Deal to block the measure, which was approved by lawmakers and was awaiting his signature. The bill, described as a measure to “protect religious freedoms,” would have made it legal for pastors to refuse to perform gay marriages and allowed churches and faith-based organizations, on the basis of their religious beliefs, to decline to hire or provide services to gays.
