Michele Bachmann: Jan Brewer wrong to veto Arizona's 'anti-gay' bill
Rep. Michele Bachmann is âsorryâ that Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a controversial bill in Arizona that would have allowed businesses to legally refuse service to same-sex couples because of religious objections.
âI believe that tolerance is a two-way street, and we need to respect everyone's rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs,â Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican told âThe Fine Print.â
Many prominent Republicans, including former Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain of Arizona have backed Brewerâs decision to veto the bill, but the tea party leader said they are wrong on this issue....
We don't need new laws to stop the homosexual agenda. Look at Matthew 10:16 "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."
If you run a business and you don't want homosexuals to sue you, but you don't want their business,then be wise. Plaster your shop with Bible verses, play good Christian music in your lobby, have Bible verses on you business cards and flyers, sell Christian merchandise in your gift shop, and display a large banner that reads "This business supports traditional marriage between one man and one woman for life" or similar. Then, you treat every customer as equal.
You stick by your beliefs--if they are true--and let the chips fall where they may. With any luck the homosexuals will ban your shop, but if not, you treat them just as you would any other customer...of course, secular heterosexual couples might avoid your shop too, and that's money a business doesn't want to turn away. Which is where problems with the law come in. If you kick out the homers, but accept adulterers then you are a hypocrite and may be sued. If you are going to be that traditionalist you must "go all in". Otherwise, anyone can be treated as second class--including Christians depending on who owns the business.
Are you and pastor Gil saying you don't want laws that are moral???? You would rather have immoral laws that reflect the majority of the society in which they are made?? Just because laws that are moral don't take you to heaven?
I wonder if Ms. Bachmann, thinks it's ok for Muhammadan taxi drivers to refuse service to blind people with guide dogs, because of their religious beliefs. Ms. Brewer had a tough call to make, and as I think it has been pointed out, the law was poorly crafted. Apparently they needed someone as crafty as Pope Franny to write the law, which would protect normal people from harassing lawsuits, that still wouldn't get the NFL worked up.
