AZ Ban On Gays

Posted on

AZ Governor Jan Brewer says she’ll do the right thing for her state, when asked about the passed bill allowing discrimination against gay people based on religious beliefs. That probably means she’ll sign it into law. Probably not the smartest move, but think about it – if people who support gays and gay people don’t go to AZ because of the ban, won’t that hurt their tourist industry? You would think those people would be speaking up.

You have to admit that the law is well written. You have to have a strong religious belief. That means the law can’t be used in the reverse. Who has a strong religious belief against straight people?

My final thought on the matter is this: why gays? I don’t like drug use – can I discriminate against someone who takes drugs? And, how will the owners know the difference between two lesbians with their children and two sisters with theirs?  There have been times when Cheryl and I have travelled with the boys that people have thought we were sisters. Or, since the boys are older, just two Grandmas out for the day. How are they going to know? Gay people don’t generally travel in packs with “I’m Gay” signs all over their bodies.

The legislature in Arizona is just pandering to the haters of their constituency. And, thankfully, that’s a dying breed.
