If you recall the case of the bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for two homosexual women, the state ruled that it violated the couple's own rights. Well, there's a backlash coming and it's easy to see.
Front and center here is a story about a bill designed to protect a business' right to refuse to participate in a homosexual situation like the bakery faced. I'm including other links to other stories where other states have passed or will soon pass legislation to do that same thing.
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Legislature gave final approval Thursday evening to legislation that allows business owners asserting their religious beliefs to refuse service to gays, drawing backlash from Democrats who called the proposal "state-sanctioned discrimination" and an embarrassment.
The 33-27 vote by the House sends the legislation to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer and puts Arizona back at the forefront of a polarizing piece of legislation four years after the state enacted an immigration crackdown that caused a national furor(click here).
Hey, if the Federal Gov't will not protect our religious freedoms, State Gov't must do so.

We must take a stand. The question before us is this, "When will heterosexuals come out of the closet and support wholesome, family values in a public venue?" --Al Colombo
