This is what my girlfriend looks like when I come home
Its a dry hate.
I am embarrassed to live here right now. Although it would be hilarious if R&D labs and other important scientific institutions started to refuse to work for any person of faith.
http://www.stonekettle.com/2014/02/arizona-goddam.html In Arizona, a fanatical group of religious extremists calling themselves the Center for Arizona Policy wrote a bill called The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, officially called SB 1062, and Friday that bill passed the Arizona state senate and is now on its way to Governor Jan Brewer’s desk.
The basic gist of the law would allow Arizona businesses to legally discriminate against anybody, but in particular Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) people.
This isn’t an exaggeration or hysterical hyperbole as its supporters claim.
In fact, if the law didn’t specifically provide protection for businesses that want to discriminate based specifically on sexual orientation and religion, there wouldn’t be any reason for it in the first place.
Legalizing discrimination is the entire purpose of SB 1062, it has no other provisions.
The law clearly and unambiguously allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers based solely on sexual orientation (or suspected orientation), it specifically protects employers who deny equal pay to women based solely on their gender if they believe women are inferior on religious grounds, it allows employers to fire employees based solely on their sexual orientation or lifestyle or religion or lack of religion, and it allows individuals and businesses to renege on existing contractual obligations again based solely on sexual orientation or lifestyle or religious beliefs – just so long as they “sincerely” invoke God when they’re doing it.
This law essentially turns every private business in Arizona into holy ground and imposes Christian Dominionism on every person inside the state lines.
This law was written and promoted specifically in support of one religion, Evangelical Christian extremism, and no other.
It’s appalling ironic that the fanatics behind this new version of segregation are the very same people who fear imposition of Islamic law upon themselves, and yet they see nothing whatsoever hypocritical about forcing their own religious agenda on everybody else. As I said, their own holy book mentions homosexuality a mere handful of times, but specifically condemns their own hypocrisy and small minded bigotry over and over and over again.
the rest gets even better….http://www.stonekettle.com/2014/02/arizona-goddam.html
