An athletic program is fighting mad about Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act and is speaking out — and it’s a school right in Gov. Mike Pence’s own backyard.
Notre Dame released a video in response to the controversial law, and the school’s message is clear: “If you can play, you can play” regardless of your sexual orientation.
The school is not the only Indiana-based institution to speak out — the NCAA, which is based in Indianapolis, has also protested the act:
“We’re going to have to sit down and make judgments about whether or not [the RFRA] changes the environment for us doing our work, and us holding events,” NCAA President Mark Emmert told the Indianapolis Star. “We’re deeply committed to the whole notion of inclusion. We have a very diverse membership.”

Identical triplets Rafala, Rocheli and Tagiane Bini have shared everything over the years — their birthday, looks, and similar tastes. And now they can add a wedding day to that list. Yes, that’s right — the 29-year-old triplets from Brazil all got married on the same day. They even all wore the same wedding dress and hairstyle. Rocheli said, “We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same one. It’s not even worth trying — it always ends up like that.” Their varying bouquet colors were the only way you could really tell the girls apart.

And for any naysayers out there who think the video is a fake, Jen had this to say, “The experience is one I'll never forget.
