When is public shunning not discrimination? When the law says so. At least that is the opinion of the Arizona Legislature. "After the Arizona Legislature gave approval on Thursday to allow business owners to assert their religious beliefs and refuse service to gays, Governor Brewer has vetoed the bill. Kansas avoided passing a similar bill last week by tabling it in committee at he behest of business interests.
Who is behind this new attempt to validate religious discrimination?
After months of study, we have come up with three questions:
1. What is the freedom sought by this kind of legislation?
2. Should the State engage in resolving religious disagreements?
3. Who benefits from these legal attempts to legitimize discrimination?
Today, we invite you to a conversation about this new round of proposed laws that pit human rights against religious rights. What do you think? Please join in!
