    You need to move to AZ. You'd fit right in.

    But, I believe that private business owners should be able to not serve anyone they want, for any reason they want.
    Nobody has a phobia of homos.

    I can just see her chewing them a new ass for putting AZ in this position.

    However, GOP National leaders are 'coming out' of the woodwork against this bill.
    Brewer is savvy enough to see this and use this as a positive unintended/intended consequence .
    There is some good or some bad in all things. I agree that what is happening in Arizona because of this bill is good in that it focuses a bright light (again) on the very narrow-minded politicos who sponsored and support the bill. It continues to illuminate the raging battle the GOP is having with right wing religious extremists within the party, within the state and nationally. I just wish it was happening somewhere else.

It happened to my Jewish ancestors, so I understand what happens when you don't have such laws. One of my ancestors died because he was Jewish, or if you want to be technical, his life would have been saved by the doctor had he not been Jewish.
    The doctor didn't want to provide him his service. That was his right. The doctor was an asshole though.

    Pretty inane considering the nature of talk at the line. The refs start throwing flags on this and just wait to see how the fans react. It won't be a pretty sight.

    Perhaps you should look into what really happens when you host a superbowl. It's not the cash cow you seem to think it is.

    Yeah, the pro-illegal folks have been saying that for years, yet they keep getting re-elected.

    Gotta love the backass republicans who voted for this.

    Why anyone would live there is beyond me.
    Why you progressives keep calling this bill "anti-gay" when it's not? PC reasons, sympathy?

    I thought you alleged "liberals" were all about freedom......... The best part is the IRS is ****ing conservative/tea party/libertarian groups up the ass - singling them out and you don't say ****.

    So much for liberty!

    Meanwhile you have the audacity to say a small business owner has to serve an individual that contradict their FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS????

    I've read articles after articles (and in some situations progressive tyrant legislators) proposing bills to allow Muslims not to touch pork or even sell it..... How the **** is this any different?

    Oh yeah because progressives are against Christianity - Islamic bigotry is fine with progressives but the second a Christian couple refuse to bake a cake for a gay couple our Constitution turns upside-down.

    But I suppose that is the logic to progressivism. Retribution, retaliation and all out destruction of the capitalism model and Christianity in general.

    The proposed law is certainly an attempt at proving it.
