Arizona’s Anti-Gay Religious Freedom Law Draws Protest


Governor Jan Brewer to decide about Arizona's anti-gay law.

Arizona’s House and Senate have made waves this week by passing legislation that, under the guise of religious freedom, would allow business owners to discriminate against gay customers.

A protest at the state’s capitol on Friday called for the veto of the bill. Protesters held signs asking,

What about love thy neighbor?

Similar legislation has just failed in Maine, and religious leaders in Kansas are calling on that state to deny a similar bill there.

Meanwhile, some argue the law is a fix, saying that current law is flawed and allows the government to force business owners to provide services against their will.

On Twitter, the bill is decried as a step backward:

With so many speaking out, perhaps Governor Jan Brewer will recognize the right to equal treatment as above the right to discriminate.
