The New Civil Rights Movement just reported on the bill — you can read how excruciatingly far-reaching the bill is, but here’s a quick excerpt:
In short, the bill allows anyone to refuse to provide service to any gay person or same-sex couple.
That “anyone” includes your doctor, a police woman, the fire department, the clerk at the DMV, a grocery store clerk, your local barber or hairdresser, your doorman, the person who comes to check your electric meter, a gas station attendant, your friendly neighborhood banker, stock broker, insurance salesperson, newspaper delivery person, cable repair man, garbage collector, heck — even your boss or co-worker.
Piers Morgan via Twitter calls the bill “GAY APARTHEID”:

Now, take a look at the above screenshot from Morgan’s Twitter page.
Given that the photo shows Morgan with the late Nelson Mandela, the man who is credited with ending Apartheid in South Africa, his use of the word “Apartheid” hardly is extreme or an exaggeration.
