NOM’s Brian Brown To AZ’s Jan Brewer: Sign The Damn Anti-Gay Bill, Meanwhile HRC Finally Reacts

Arizona

 

Posted by the National Organization for Marriage President and bigot Brian Brownshit to his evil minions on NOM’s website yesterday

“If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years from witnessing the redefinition of marriage in several states and in other places around the world, it is that there is an inevitable impasse between the genderless marriage regime and the conscience rights of those who believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Wherever marriage is redefined, the story is the same: florists, photographers, bakers, caterers, social hall owners — anyone who runs a business that caters to the celebration of nuptials — these individuals are forced to choose between their deeply held beliefs about marriage and the prospect of being forced out of business by onerous lawsuits claiming ‘discrimination.’

So I’m asking you to take action today to support two state-level pieces of legislation which aim to protect individuals and their businesses from legal reprisals for declining to participate in same-sex ‘marriages.’ The bills are pending in Arizona and Kansas.

Urge Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to Sign the Religious Freedom Restoration Act

Thanks for standing with us to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it.

Faithfully,

Brian S. Brown

Meanwhile almost a whole week AFTER this whole fiasco started the Human Rights Campaign has FINALLY sent out a rather boilerplate press release:

Allowing the Senate passage of Arizona’s so-called “Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin released the following statement: “This bill is bad for business, bad for the LGBT community and bad for all Arizonans. Governor Brewer, who herself described it as very controversial, must veto it and send a strong message that legally sanctioned discrimination has no place in Arizona. “Religious groups have a long established first amendment ability to operate according to their own beliefs. However, when individuals or businesses go out into the commercial market, they must abide by legal non-discrimination provisions. “When providing a service to the public, a business owner shouldn’t pick and choose who they want to provide a service to and who they want to deny. Instead of protecting religious liberty, this bill gives license for discrimination to run rampant across the state.”

You know since its good for their business and donations if President Obama had said the slightest thing about gay people HRC and Chad “I was born a poor homo in Alabama and now make 375k a year for HRC” Griffin would be writing press releases in tongues and bombarding the media outlets within 5 minutes of it happening

Then people wonder why 45 year after Stonewall we still don;t have equality.

  1. As a resident of Arizona in the Phoenix area this bill terrifies me. My partner of 26 years is disabled and may at some time need emergency care. What if a fireman or paramedic refuses him care? What if the hospital does? Please bombard Governor Brewer’s office with requests that she veto this dangerous bill. Thank you!

What do you think?
