Indiana’s new “religious freedom” law, which says the government cannot intrude on a person’s religious liberty unless it can prove a compelling interest in imposing the burden and do so in the least restrictive way. Does that mean a business can turn away gay customers?

Plumbing and gas work may have caused a 7-alarm fire and explosion in Manhattan’s East Village Thursday afternoon. 12 people have been hurt, three critically, in the fiery explosion that sent four buildings up in flames. Three of the buildings have now collapsed. Witnesses say a thunderous explosion rocked the five story building. Then within seconds fire engulfed it. One witness Ron spoke with said he could see people trapped inside to leap from the windows. Hundreds of firefighters poured in to battle the raging inferno, dense, black smoke making it almost impossible to see just a few feet. Ron was on the scene shortly after the explosion.

Authorities say the co-pilot of the doomed German Wings flight deliberately crashed that Airbus jet carrying 149 other people. Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, public prosecutor Brice Robin said that 28-year-old Andreas Lubitz . deliberately “wanted to destroy the plane”. That was the conclusion reached by French investigators after listening to the last minutes of Tuesday’s Flight 9525 from the plane’s black box voice data recorder. The investigation, as this point, turns from what caused the crash to finding out the motives behind the co-pilot’s action.

French investigators cracked open a mangled black box and extracted audio from its cockpit voice recorder Wednesday, but gleaned no explanation for why a German plane dropped unexpectedly and smashed into a rugged Alpine mountain, killing all 150 on board. The orange cockpit voice recorder — dented, twisted and scarred by the impact — is considered key to knowing why the pilots of Germanwings Flight 9525 lost radio contact with air traffic controllers over the French Alps and then crashed Tuesday during a routine flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf.
