Last week Disney and Marvel (which Disney owns) said they would stop filming in the state if the bill passed and soon after other major companies including Time Warner, Lionsgate, Starz, CBS, Sony, 21st Century Fox, Comcast, and others all voiced their opposition to the bill. The legislation would allow faith-based organizations in Georgia the option to deny services to LGBT people.
