The Arizona state legislature passed a controversial bill (SB 1062) that would allow businesses to exercise "religious freedom" by denying service to anyone. The bill is ostensibly written to target same sex couples. At this writing, SB 1062 awaits the signature of the Arizona Governor (R) Jan Brewer.
Maybe the Arizona legislature was on the golf course this past Sunday, but in church, we heard Jesus point out that God does not
discriminate, sending the sun to shine upon the just and the unjust
alike (Matthew 5:45). Something the Arizona legislature should be
extremely grateful for at this point.
Gov. Brewer, your state
legislature has already caused enough pain to same sex couples and shame
to the state of Arizona. I hope you will do what your legislature
didn’t. Go to the window. Look at the beautiful sun drenched landscape
of your lovely state.
If you do, you’ll know what to do with SB 1062.
