If there’s any doubt that a picture is worth a thousand words, this one photo should put any concerns to rest. Posted to Twitter an hour ago by Turn Arizona Blue, the photo shows a protest sign at today’s rally in Phoenix against SB 1062, the bill that — if Governor Brewer signs it — will allow anyone to discriminate against anyone else if not doing so violates their religious beliefs.
The sign reads:
“So serving gays is against your religion? I expect you also plan to refuse service to:
- Divorced people
- People who eat shellfish
- People who eat meat on Fridays
- People who work on Sundays
- People who shave/cut their hair
- People who wear two different materials
- People who plant more than one type of seed
Touché, sign writer, touché!
Cherry-picking the parts of the Bible you like/don’t like is hypocritical. If your “sincerely held religious beliefs” are so devout that they force you to discriminate against gay people, they you must discriminate against all the above, and many others, I suspect.
Fair is fair.
