from The American Thinker:
The religious freedom legislation that gelatin-spined Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed wasn’t controversial until the Left started lying about it.
The state-level civil rights bill that Brewer mothballed Feb. 26 was killed by a media-led propaganda campaign that falsely characterized it as “anti-gay.” To no one’s surprise, both of the GOP’s last two RINO losers, Mitt Romney and John McCain, urged a veto.
As Ed Whelan blogs at National Review,
There has been a blizzard of hysterical misinformation about Arizona’s SB 1062. As anyone who takes the trouble to consult the text of the legislation will readily discover, SB 1062 does not mention, much less single out, gays or same-sex ceremonies.
As Douglas Laycock (who supports redefining marriage to include same-sex couples) and other leading religious-liberty scholars explain in a letter to Arizona governor Jan Brewer, SB 1062 “has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics.”
