In a story March 31 about laws known as Religious Freedom Restoration Acts, The Associated Press reported that Douglas Laycock, a constitutional scholar at the University of Virginia Law School, expressed frustration that gay rights advocates criticizing the Indiana version of the law did not acknowledge that the laws had never successfully been used to override non-discrimination statutes. Laycock was then quoted saying, "I don't know if they don't know that, or whether they're pandering to their base." The story should have made clear that his comment was about Republican sponsors of the law who Laycock felt were wrongly promising that the laws would protect religious objectors from having to recognize gay marriage.
