    Can we agree that even if it's true that some other players in the NFL might be "uncomfortable" showering with someone openly gay, that would still be a completely retarded reason to base actual legislation on.

    First off you shouldn't be able to sue someone because of a difference of opinion. Religious rights are in the constitution. they are afforded by the constitution including the practice of those religious rights and government cannot interfere. whether the laws stands on it's own ground or not i don't know.

    From what i see the AZ bill reinforces those rights. from what i have seen is that people are turning it into anti-gay or something yet the language of the bill says nothing about it. It simply says you can't sue someone of religious views and shut their business down.

    i will leave it up to the courts to decide.

    the guy in the OP is a moron. no one is going to touch that proposal. again this isn't the GOP this is a lobbyist. so it is dishonest to say that this is the GOP.

    Now, three GOP lstate legislators admit it was a mistake, and are begging Gov. Brewer to veto it.
    I don't suppose the Super Bowl up for vote in arizona has anything to do with GOP rethinking .
    Perhaps you could sometimes consider that not every Conservative person thinks alike.

    Classic. The GOP slowly sliding into an irrelevant regional party based upon hate. May God have mercy on their souls.
    It's good to see that they don't want to regulate private enterprise. Oh wait,....

    This is more of the same useless but 'visible' crap.
    Except what exactly is the Republican party supposed to do about this particular one?

    The guy names not a single republican congressman or senator whose supporting his bill.

    No republican group to my knowledge has came out in support of this.

    No right leaning news groups had focused on this story from my quick search last night.

    What you have is one idiot coming out and being an idiot...which frankly, sans illegal action privately or facist action through the law, can't really be definitively stopped...and a bunch of primarily left leaning and/or sports sites picking up the story and pushing it.

    It's "visible" crap because hyper partisans like Threegoofs and Top Cat grab their marching orders from liberal entities and start screaming to high heaven about the "GOP" due to a lone crazy whose credentials are over inflated by said liberal entity. And, not surprisingly, you of course blame the Republicans for that.

    Yet I just pointed to two or three other pieces of legislation in this thread that were similarly anti gay (Indiana gay marriage ban, AZ foofaw, KS hate the gay bill) that have been pushed by the GOP and supported by its base. Theres a boatload of this stuff out there... and its meant to whip up the voter base of evangelicals and poor, underprivileged heterosexual white men.

    And somehow I am 'hyperpartisan"? Believe me.... I am considered 'slightly liberal' now, but fifteen years ago, I would have been considered 'slightly conservative'. And I havent changed.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I didn't. Apparently regulating private enterprise is perfectly fine with this lobbyist.

    It's good to see that you read. Oh wait....

    Seems fitting for the thread:

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Yes, I saw you act like a typical hyper partisan and post your little echo chamber propoganda site for your side that completely misrepresented and exaggerate the situation regarding one of those bills (which is sad considering it was perfectly condemnable without the hyperbole). I also saw Anagram completely dismantle the post, both pointing out what was horribly wrong with your link AND how it wasn't a comparable situation. Of course, you didn't bother to respond to him and just went on your way peddling your standard propoganda...so why exactly should I bother to do the same?

    You go ahead and label yourself all you want. Your actions speak louder than any words, such as the ridiculous and laughable attempt to characterize an entire political ideology based on the actions of an inconsequential lobbyist that has no acknowledged support what so ever in congress but whose credentials were puffed up in a liberal leaning publication that you unthinkingly believed like it was gopsel.

    This man is not the GOP nor does he represent them...he's one lone idiot without any backing or support. You got called on your bull**** attempt to smear and entire population of people based on your bigotry towards them thanks to this one person and so you're back peddling attempting to justify your BS by throwing anything and everything against the wall and hoping it could stick. Even if what you poster were legitimate arguments, and as pointed out already by others they're not, it still wouldn't change that the attempt to take this one worthless individual and present him as some example of the GOP as an entire entity was completely and utterly retarded and pathetic.
