“Mister, you wanted a war. You just got one.”
–George Peppard speaking to Richard Widmark in the movie How the West Was Won
By a vote of 7-0, Tempe’s city council just passed a non-discrimination law. It’s the same kind of law used in many areas of the U.S. to trump the First Amendment’s free exercise of religion. These radical laws exist elsewhere around Arizona, too.
Christian florists, bakers, bed and breakfast owners and photographers have all been hauled before activist courts and punished under this kind of radical law.
Tomorrow, a Christian florist in Tempe could be sued for not providing flowers for a so-called “same-sex commitment ceremony.” Even though same-sex “marriage” is illegal in Arizona. Even though the Constitution forbids governments from compelling people to violate their religious beliefs.
Governor Jan Brewer just turned a blind eye to this threat, growing out of control across America. She is not reading the tea leaves and does not understand this threat. She also didn’t understand Senate Bill 1062, which was designed to protect people from these kinds of attacks. She did, however, understand the power of corporate America, the NFL, homosexual pressure groups, the left-stream media, and RINO advisers and lawmakers (named Flake, McCain, Worsley, Dial, Pierce, Kwasman, et al).
Governor, you wanted a local war on religious freedom? You just got one.
