Anti-gay law gets veto

Governor Brewer vetoed Arizona’s proposed anti-gay bill

 

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just did the right think and vetoes a bill that would have PROMOTED discrimination in Arizona.  Senate Bill 1062 would have allowed businesses to deny service to gays and lesbians claiming “religious beliefs”.  You have got to love how religion is being used by bigots (yet again) to promote discrimination. 

I respect Governor Brewer for her position.  She said that she made the right choice for Arizona and I agree! Many republicans have come out against this horrific bill which is nice to see.  People are slowly getting their heads out of their asses. 

Brewer said, “I call them as I see them, despite the cheers or the boos from the crowd,” and alled the bill “broadly worded”.  She went on to say, “To the supporters of the legislation, I want you to know that I understand that long-held norms about marriage and family are being challenged as never before. Our society is undergoing many dramatic changes,”

She went on to say “However, I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve. It could divide Arizona in ways we cannot even imagine and no one would ever want.  Religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value, so is non-discrimination.” <———— YAAASSSSSSS

This makes me smile.
