Arizona SB1062 and the death of religious liberty

When you contemplate what just happened in Arizona with the squashing of SB1062, it’s breathtaking.

The bill made no reference at all to gays, same sex marriage, or discrimination. It simply allowed a person to cite his or her religious beliefs as a defense in a lawsuit. See the article in the Christian Post explaining this. Follow this link to read the text of the bill.

The reaction of the gay activist community was interesting. Essentially, they were saying, “We can’t allow such unfettered freedom of religion. If we allow people to follow their religious beliefs, they may discriminate against us.” And with gay rights being the “cause du jour,” they won the day.

Scary, for those of us who believe in religious liberty.
