    Arizona bill would allow businesses to refuse service to gays

    Proponents say measure protects religious freedom; opponents say it promotes discrimination and will lead to boycotts of state if Gov. Jan Brewer signs it

    I am not cool with homosexuality period but:


    This law does not only target gays. It legally gives people /business the right to refuse you service based on their so called religious beliefs. It will allow them to SAY I won’t serve you because you are gay/black/Hispanic etc.

    It kind of reminds me when Republicans and Libertarians argued against the Civil Rights act with the same reasoning.

    It is Arizona though so I am not surprised.
