EDIT: the bill has been vetoed! THANK LOGIC!
recently, Arizona has become quite dickish when it starts trying to pass laws.
long story short, the bill allows business owners & employees to refuse service to, mainly, LGBTQ if their religious beliefs dont agree with LGBTQ.
now, for those of you who arent up to date with American goverment/live outside the US, theres one big thing that America seems to forget: America has a SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE.
in otherwords; you can hang crosses, menorahs & any type of religious attire around your neck, house & anything you own. but religion cannot be taught in schools & other state owned places.
does this apply to business owners & places of retail & restaurants? in some cases, those buildings are state owned. Religion & Business are supposed to be SEPARATED when it comes to that, right?
so why are Arizona legislatures thinking that this is a good idea? protecting one's beliefs because someone else doesnt agree with it? more specifically, it's giving all the power to the business owner who's suposed to be HELPING & SERVING the public. if he/she doesnt agree with their customer all because of sexual preference, thats not being helpful at all.
its fucking retarted! that's being lower than PETA or Bernie Madoff!
that's like me, an atheist, refusing help to christians at work because of their beliefs which i dont agree with. i dont have a religion, or faith. anybody who comes up to me asking for help, if they wear a cross or something which i dont like, id have the choice to help them or not.
fuck. that. that's discrimination. i dont believe in discrimination of beliefs. you can believe in god or a 5 headed dragon that shoots yarn from its horn-wings that'll come to save you, & wouldnt give a fuck about that. i dont give a shit! i'll debate on it with you if you want.
but for someone to ask "are you gay?" before being served then being denied service because of how their genetic makeup is? THAT'S. FUCKED. UP.
that picture that's running around the internet, that poster "We have the right to refuse service to ARIZONA LEGISLATURES." that was on a restaurant's window? i applaud you guys. that may be hypocritical of me to say "i dont discriminate" but then refuse service to a legislature from Arizona. i agree with that. they are ones being discriminate; how'd they like it if they got a taste of their own medication?
if 'murica is a separation of church & state country.... why cant LGBTQ get married? OH RIGHT, RELIGION. i see. America not being founded on religion means LGBTQs can get married in ANY STATE. so, why the fuck is it not happening? why did it not already exist in the first place?
listen, anti-gay. it's the LGBTQ community member's CHOICE to marry, have kids & such, NOT YOURS. if you're all about "well god said-", FUCK THAT. there's more flaws in that Bible than there are holes in the Earth!
how does it destroy the sanctity of marriage when youre not even bothered by the marriages in every house around your house? if your god didnt want gays, then he wouldnt be creating them! if your god hates gays, he woulda been killing them! after all, your god created us in his image, so he's gay too! if he creates children, why is he making them gay?
i like gay couples, especially guys. i find them kinda cute. :3
fuck, im gonna stop here. if you wanna debate with me, let's do that in the comments.
