    Yep, Brewer vetoes the bill for fiscal rather than moral reasons, but it still gets vetoed.

    The constitution already guarantees religious freedoms. Government can make NO LAW …. remember? But don’t let THAT stop you from trashing a governor simply because her ideas are different from yours.

    tolerance

    diversity

    big tent

    Democrat positions that imply different views are acceptable and welcome…….. unless you go against the party position that is.

    Democrats have never exploited gay people.

    Interesting that so many jump on Brewer for vetoing this thing over money or morality. Regardless of her public comments on this (she is a politician, after all), we really have no idea why she vetoed it.

    I really have to disagree with you there, Mike. Listening to Gov. Brewer’s statement regarding her decision to veto the bill, her first four or five reasons cited were business, business, money and business. At the end she said she was not aware of any extant legislation that would prevent people from exercising religious freedom. While it’s true she didn’t come out and say “I vetoed this because it would be bad for business”, that was the ONLY thing she didn’t say.

    So, if you don’t sell your goods to gay people, they won’t be gay anymore? lol lol. I know. Since you like referencing Nazis so much, you can just put them in concentration camps and starve them to death and then you won’t have to worry about them coming into a bakery asking for a cake for their wedding, which, of course by your argument, is the linchpin for the sinful marriage. Jesus. get a life.

    The bill did not even mention homosexuals. Sometime we have to stop catering to them.

    She’s not as dumb as she sounds.

    -
    I’m pretty sure she vetoed it because it was Bad for Business.

    Bad for Business trumps most other ‘conservative’ issues.

    Sure…in YOUR opinion.

    Oh no, I agree. As long as government is not forcing anyone to adhere to a “religious” belief or join a “State Church” or face a legal penalty we’re cool.

    But if my “faith” dictates that I can not engage in commerce with left handed gingers and one comes into my shop to conduct business and then the government says “I MUST” under penalty of law conduct that business then they are requiring that I NOT practice my faith as dictated by the rules of that faith and therefore making a law concerning my religion.

    The constitution says that government may make NO LAW in that regard.

    Personally, I don’t care what people do as long as they do not steal from me or bring physical harm to me.

    BUT, just s you feel strongly about your OPINION, so do those with a deep religious conviction.

    They have rights too. Their exercise of that right did not bring physical or financial harm to the other party.

    So what is all the fuss about? Go to another bakery.

    How do YOU know that he is cherry picking? Perhaps he is just able to stick to the subject at hand and express his opinion with intelligence.

    That’s right, the bill didn’t mention homosexuals, Mdavis: which is why it allowed discrimination against almost anyone, or well, everyone, outside their “faith”. So those good Christians who wrote it, might get nervous if they’re in need of an EMT and a black/Muslim/ paramedic shows up at their accident, life in the balance, and they spout off their doggrel to transgender; HER!

    But it is still OK to think of them as less than people or even an abomination. Besides, what is to stop this from escalating to allow other harm. Since gay marriage leads to bestiality and all.

    Point of the ‘toon is she vetoed not because it was morally repugnant, but it would hurt business
    .
    Republicans can’t get away with their crappy laws anymore, especially when it’s so blatantly overt.
    .
    They keep trying, however – when they control. Look at the voter suppression laws they’ve passed in OH to try to cement their power. They can’t win on the (de)merits of their laws, so they keep people from changing it and stay in the shadows (away from the media) as much as possible.

    Take note, social/religious conservatives. Republicans take your support for granted. They talk a good game.
    When the rubber hits the road, business, the almighty dollar, wins the day.
    They playin’ you fo’ suckas, they is.
    And have been since the time of Nixon.
