    Will our most prominent RJ Arizona Conservative support this? The cheerleader for homophobic Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer? Who's told us how wonderful she is? And who's pushing this and wants to sign it?

    Arizona state lawmaker Rep. Chad Campbell, an LGBT rights advocate and vocal opponent of a bill passed in the state legislature that would allow for religious discrimination against LGBT people, appeared on CNN on Friday to discuss the implications of the measure should it be signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer.

    Campbell, the Democratic minority leader, said during Thursday’s debate that gays and lesbians across the country would get the message that they’re not welcome in Arizona.

    “We’re telling them, ‘We don’t like you. We don’t want you here. We’re not going to protect you,” he said.

    The odds of Arizona lawmakers stepping foot at Roccos before the "new policy"? ...prolly slimmer than the chance of an explosion of new customers when the tweet goes viral.

    I am going to take a stab at it but this probably came about to get ahead or gain defensive move over a ENDA vote and or backlash over the federal contractor executive order that will probably be signed by the president this year if the House refuses a vote on ENDA, the writing is on the republicans last stand preverbal wall icon_rolleyes.gif

    If Jan Brewer, who has vetoed similar legislation, vetoes this bill is she still the oh so terrible homophobe that you describe her as? Or will you simply feel stupid? I'm curious, I'm also a democrat and I strongly believe that she will do the right thing and not sign this bill into law. She has not shown one sign of supporting this bill and as a governor who is so focused on Arizona's economy, what makes you think that she would jeopardize losing the massive amount of revenue from the superbowl (They have moved the superbowl out of Arizona for similar legislation before) for a bill that she has essentially vetoed just last year? Or is it simply because "She is a conservative so she must be a bigot" type of mentality that you posses? That makes you no better than the tea-party supporting morons who just scream democrat at every problem we face in this country.

    I think Arizona is such a beautiful state but this turn to koo koo they have taken over the past decade is very sad.

    Sad to say, but I have no intentions of visiting Arizona until both the brainless bitch they have for governor and that vicious fascist that Maricopa County has for Sheriff are both permanently booted out of public office. It is very unfortunate because Arizona is a very beautiful, scenic, frontier state.icon_sad.gif

    Prescott, AZ is on my potential retirement list, mostly because so many of my redneck SoCal buddies went there to retire, but Phoenix and Tucson are just too hot during the summer. I can deal with the cold and do, but that kind of heat just saps what energy I have right out of me.

    Freedomisntfree:

    The Tea Party is singularly obsessed with the idea of "states' rights". There is no rational reason why states should be presumed to have rights at all. Historically the doctrine was invented as a way to keep the (mostly Southern) agrarian states from bolting from the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and if anyone pretends that it wasn't part of the original slavery debate then they really don't know their history. Again and again, the doctrine bubbles out of the sewer whenever some part of the populace decides it wants the ability to harm another part---whether that is to squash unions, enact Jim Crow, or invent new exotic ways of criminalizing teh gayz. The Southern economic model, which they've always been eager to export to the whole country (and have somewhat succeeded in, of all places, Wisconsin) is to make sure that the workers are underpaid, economically precarious, and disenfranchised. This keeps them from having any workplace power or even any real chance at mobility----in other words, it is the modern-day method of perpetuating the slave-labor system without the moral repugnance of actual slavery. THIS is what "States' Rights" are all about; the high-flown rhetoric about the genius of the Founders is all distraction and hogwash.

    And that's the Tea Party. There's no way to dress that up or make it less repulsive.

    As far as I am concerned, states are creatures of the US Government. They were created through a process known as statehood. It is just like counties and cities being creatures of the states. The state government created them through the legislative process and issued them corporate charters.

    "Historically the doctrine was invented as a way to keep the (mostly Southern) agrarian states from bolting from the Constitutional Convention in 1787"

    we agree here, but that's about it.

    I'm mind boggled by this bill.
    The news just said it was not signed by the governor yet.
    It also went on to say, with this nutty bill, people could find reasons to refuse anybody anything for religious reasons.
    I don't know how such a bad idea was even considered.

    Because Arizona was unfortunately infiltrated with a lot of NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS and MORONIC MORMON FUNDIES which led to the extreme right wing shift in state and local governmentsicon_sad.gificon_mad.gif

    It was a j/k mostly as that was also one of RBR's favorite ALLCAPS phrases from a while back. Sort of a standing or maybe even sitting joke between RBR and myself.

    I think something needs to be done about the pressing CAPS LOCK issue. Not sure a complete ban is the answer, but clearly some legislation is required.

    I shall write to my Congressperson about this. A very strongly-worded letter.
