Gay Discrimination Law? ***UPDATE***


According to Fox News, Governor Brewer caved in,  thus potentially subjecting every Christian business owner in Arizona to malicious lawsuits by homosexual activists.


According to Newsmax’s headline, Sources: Brewer Will Veto Gay Discrimination Law.  What kind of ‘gay discrimination law’ are they talking about?   

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer will veto a controversial bill that would allow business owners to refuse service to gays and lesbians on the grounds of their religious conviction, NBC News is reporting via Twitter. (emphasis mine)
Oh, the draconian horror of a law reinforcing the Second Amendment rights of business owners to freely exercise their religious convictions in their business dealings, eh?

In fact, NBC even tweeted out the following:
More: Brewer "doesn't want to take any actions that could jeopardize the economic momentum" in Arizona, source says
Now how in the world could this law jeopardize Arizona’s economic momentum?  Here’s how:
Brewer has been under intense pressure from business groups and political leaders to diffuse the situation and veto the legislation which they fear will draw unnecessary attention to Arizona a year before it hosts the next Super Bowl and following economic losses on controversial immigration stances.
Good heavens!!! They might lose … (gasp) … the SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ms Brewer might be well-served to consider the Christian-owned businesses in other states around her who have been successfully sued and put out of business by ‘offended’ homosexuals, as well as the quite-likely possibility of Christian-owned businesses, not wishing to have to deal with the possibility of lawsuits, voluntarily shuttering their businesses in Arizona and, perhaps, relocating to more Christian-friendly states. 

I think those losses might ‘jeopardize the economic momentum’ of Arizona slightly more than having the NFL huffily relocate their Stupid Bowl.
