    Arizona anti-gay bill vetoed by governor

    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill that would have allowed business owners to refuse service to gays or others on religious grounds.
    She made the announcement Wednesday evening hours after Major League Baseball and the National Football League joined a growing chorus of business organizations denouncing or expressing strong reservations about the legislation.

    vetoed just like i thought and said it would be


    equality wins again


    again it shows the panic and fear of the bigots and those that support discrimination and are against equal rights. They see the writing on the wall, they know equal rights is winning and is going to win the war so they are getting desperate.

    The best part is, even if they win some of these little battles its things like this that are actually HELPING equal rights. The majority of the public eye judges it as wrong and see how nuts it is. But it establishes something that can be challenged in courts just like the state bannings. The vast majority of the lawsuits exist BECAUSE of state bannings lol. The bannings HELPED, its sweet poetic justice.

    THeres some other state trying these i hope they get some momentum behind them to draw more of the public eye on this insanity.

    Inb4 the crocodile tears begin to flow like crazy in this thread.

    Go ahead, those of you who want to legally deny LGBT rights. See how far that gets you these days. Let me give you a little piece of advice: If the party which you vote for--which is significantly more likely to be Republican than Democratic--continues to run against LGBT rights, then you (plural) are going to be FINISHED as a national party. So go ahead and let your hate flow. The only place it's going to flow forever is on the pages of the history books.

    Re: Arizona anti-gay bill vetoed by governor

    I have heard that there are plenty of LGBT groups that would love to be a part of drafting new versions of these bills so that religious liberties can be protected and incidents like the Cake Shop Owner and Wedding Photographer will not happen in other states. Instead of being adversarial, why not include gay rights folks so that we can have legislation that genuinely seeks to secure religious liberty rather than just trying to strip gay rights under the guise of religion? Freedom of association should be a public discussion, not a partisan issue.

    Re: Arizona anti-gay bill vetoed by governor

    I have to admit, I'm torn on this one. On one hand, I think businesses should have the right to refuse on any basis, on the other hand, if we allow people to refuse service because of religion, where does it stop?
