Ok, what is up with this? This is similar to the long ago German sweep of “non Aryans” and “undesirables” (even considering the strange proclivities of the Reich’s hierarchy. Is this the same as the Lunch counter sit ins? maybe. To determine who is gay what will be required? ID cards, certain clothing or some other Identifying item or marks? This is probably one of most ridiculous things I have ever  heard. As I understand it, the supporters of this law are protecting their religious rights so let” he who is without sin cast the first stone”! This a poor business model to say the least as ALL money is green and spends the same anywhere.

A bunch of states are now considering – and Arizona’s state legislature has now passed – law that would allow businesses, individuals, to discriminate against gay customers on religious grounds. Deny them service. Ohio, Mississippi, Idaho, South Dakota, Tennessee and Oklahoma have all seen similar legislation introduced. But Arizona – where it all hinges now on Gov. Jan Brewer’s signature or veto – is out front. Supporters say it’s about religious liberty. Critics say its carte blanche for straight up discrimination. This hour On Point: gay rights, religious liberty and the law in Arizona.
