SB1062 gives haters the green light

     I was horrified to read the article in the Arizona Daily Star on Jan. 16 regarding SB1062. This is a bill being pushed by State Sen. Steve Yarbrough (R-Chandler). According to the Star, SB1062 “would allow businesses to discriminate against gays and potentially women and Jews, as long as they were acting on sincerely held religious beliefs.” [The Arizona Senate and House have approved the bill, which is awaiting a signature or veto by Gov. Jan Brewer.]

     With all the anti-Semitism in Europe and in this country, a bill such as SB1062 would give a green light to the haters.

    Although Nazi Germany was many years ago, I shudder at the thought of the bill passing.

    Sen. Yarbrough has a lot to answer for. He should be ashamed of himself.
