    Default Arizona Law Makers Approve Anti-Gay Bill

    So...

    Arizona's Legislature has passed a controversial bill that would allow business owners, as long as they assert their religious beliefs, to deny service to gay and lesbian customers...
    I don't understand how something like this could be passed. All a person has to say is
    "God doesn't approve of you!" and they can basically slam the door on people.

    Not just LGBT people. It opens the door for infinite douche-baggery.

    Ever been divorced?
    Maybe not. Maybe your spouse just has a different skin tone?
    Had an abortion?
    Baby out of wedlock? Too bad single mommy doesn't get groceries!
    Like to drink a little too much on weekends?
    Jewish?
    Yell "GOD DAMN!" when you stub your toe?

    We'll if you are ever in Arizona, you may be f*cked.

    You forgot "woman?" pretty much in general these days with all those radical "don't follow men orders" movements going on.

    Why shouldn't business owners be able to choose who they do business with?

    Hmm, good point. If I was anti-gay I wouldn't want to serve them. But it's still discriminatory :/

    Maybe they should just make gay people use separate services? Maybe make them use separate water fountains and such?

    There's a difference between public goods and private businesses. If someone wants to do less business and make less money because they have a problem with gay people, I say more power to them.

    Yeah, totally. Why should it be a requirement that a group of people have a set of living conditions that ensure they have a sustainable supply of required goods to live? In fact, why shouldn't we just make it so it is illegal to service said people so that they are forced to commit crimes to survive and/or die off? It's not like this is one of the basic columns on top of the American foundation. We should just go back 100 years and remove their basic human rights, thus allowing these people to be murdered and enslaved due to a lack of protection from the law. Let's just make it so that everyone who isn't a straight white Christian isn't even considered a human being. How does that sound, TheSkald?
