Ariz. Senate panel approves bill to allow discrimination based on religious beliefs

Thursday, January 16, 2014

PHOENIX — An Arizona Senate committee gave initial approval Thursday to a bill allowing people to claim that their religious beliefs led them to refuse service to gays or others.

The bill pushed by Republican Sen. Steve Yarbrough (R-Chandler), is a new version of a measure that was a vetoed last year.

Civil rights groups oppose the bill, saying it would allow discriminatory actions by businesses. But Yarbrough said his push was prompted by a New Mexico case where the state Supreme Court allowed a gay couple to sue a photographer who refused to take pictures of their wedding.

He said his effort is simply an attempt to clarify protections for religious beliefs, although he acknowledged current state law likely is adequate. He downplayed concerns that businesses like hotels, for instance, could refuse to rent rooms to gays or unmarried women under the measure, saying federal civil rights laws still apply.

“That’s all it does,” Yarbrough said. “And all this going crazy, lighting their hair on fire is misplaced.”

Last year’s legislation would have allowed people or religious groups to sue if they believed they might be subject to a government regulation that infringed on their religious rights. Yarbrough stripped that provision from the bill.

Civil-liberties and secular groups countered that Yarbrough and the Center for Arizona Policy had sought to minimize concerns that last year bill’s had far-reaching and hidden implications. They said the bill would allow people to break nearly any law and cite religious freedom as a defense.

The groups are still opposed, saying in testimony before a Senate committee Thursday that the bill aims to fix a problem that doesn’t exist and confer new rights on religious groups over minority groups.

“Freedom means freedom for everyone, and it is wrong to treat someone differently because of who they are,” said Rebecca Wininger, president of Equality Ar izona, a gay rights group.

Senate Bill 1062 passed the Senate Government and Environment Committee on a 4-2 party-line vote. It now heads to the full Senate after a review in the Senate Rules Committee.

I don’t personally care if Johnny and Jimmy or Sally and Susan want to be married and be treated equal to everyone, you should be able to do this. But on the other hand, if someone who operates a business, let’s say they make wedding gowns, does not agree with your lifestyle, they should not have to serve you. Don’t preach about equality if you want to take away from other peoples beliefs.

  153. I really do wish, in all sincerity, that we could once and for all have somebody of proper authority put these religious tyrants in their place! These overly-deluded and incredibly arrogant people actually believe their religious faith should somehow trump the manner by which this SECULAR country mandates civil law. And that has to stop. Nobody has ever threatened to shut down or take away their right to follow whatever faith they want, and it’s never been about that. But those religious edicts have absolutely NO place in public policy, and they definitely should not be used as a means to enshrine discrimination into ANY state’s constitution. I mean, seriously, just who in the hell do these nutcases think they are?

People this does sound dumb, but people who don’t know, need to understand that in the state of Arizona, it’s legal to deny employment and to terminate employment based on someone’s sexual orientation. I would rather it be illegal to discriminate against anything that seems unconstitutional, but maybe this will open some people’s eyes that discrimination is completely wrong

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 2:47am
  280. True, it might. Or it might just bring us back to the medieval times. Where justice, laws, and everything else was based around Christianity. and since half the country still believe in a magical, healing zombie.

  281. Hey, like I said at the end of my comment, I would rather have no discrimination at all. I would rather Arizona say that you can't discriminate someone based off of their sexual orientation, gender, religious beliefs, and age but for some reason, Arizona decided to make it legal to discriminate against religious beliefs instead. I just think that this will give a lot of negative feedback, but will also give the chance that discriminating against sexual orientation is wrong to and maybe both laws will be fixed. Honestly, that what I'm hoping for.

  297. I’m sorry I thought we had a little something called separation of church and state…but I must be wrong

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:11am
  298. So now people can legally discriminate against Christians and deny them service, sweet. Oh wait, you mean that it was intended only to be used by Christians. Allowing them to have the power to discriminate? Of course it was, cause people can’t have White republican Christians actually knowing what it feels like to be a targeted minority.

  299. S.U.P.R.E.M.E ….. C.O.U.R.T. Spell that with me , Gov. Leather-face.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:24am
  304. SCRATCH ARIZONA OFF THE LIST. TO SAY THAT I AM INCREDULOUS IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. WHEN I READ THIS, ALL I COULD SAY IS “WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT THE FUCKKKKKK?” I SEE THE CONSTITUTION DISSOLVING BEFORE OUR EYES.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:31am
  305. Oh well, that’s why I have to avoid these religious nuts! I don’t like them and I am tired and sick of bigots!!!

  306. Wow! Really Arizona!. -.-

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:35am
  307. And what I wanna know is does this bill allow doctors to discriminate. Can they deny to cure or help a person based on the person faith or sexuality. And say “well it goes against my belief to help them.” Would this be legal?

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:36am
  308. Will “religion” ever be lifted out of the gutter?

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:39am

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:43am
  311. This is why we need to enforce the separation of church and state!!

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:47am
  312. If they manage to do that, the next thing might be discrimination based on racial believe. Is that state part of Russia?

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:47am
  313. They are also passing a law that makes it unlawful to take a gun away from someone and allows guns in all public places that do not provide locking lockers for the gun owner…

  314. Then you boycott those businesses. Gay dollars to gay business.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:58am
  315. And people wonder why I stopped attending church services. I love Jesus, but I’m beginning to hate religion. I understand the majority of Christians (at least Catholics) are not in favour of discrimination against lgbt, but that majority needs to take a stand and become a voice to the hierarchy. Maybe they are with fewer seats being filled.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 3:58am
  316. What the hell is wrong with these people??? I thought this country was founded in religious freedom. I guess times have changed. I was wondering what the hell happened to this country, now I know. Bigots in charge and spreading their ignorance.

  320. Good now I can spread hate toward the religions..

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:17am
  321. Come on Arizona, veto that bill!

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:21am
  322. I have no problem with this as far as Weddings and Cakes etc. If You are against gay weddings, you should not be forced to officiate at one or to cater it. By the same token, Since you are playing politics, You should lose your tax exempt status.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:30am
  323. Oh God I’m so glad I don’t live in Arizona! What a horrible existence!

  326. This has to be there way to fight against the growing number of states to allow gay marriage. Trying to discourage anyone for claiming they are anything but a “good ol christian”

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:37am
  327. AZ lesbian. Can’t wait to get to colorado! Various reasons:)

  330. Such morons! They should ban religious fascism instead!

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:44am
  331. This will be thrown out of court, too! Idiots!

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:47am
  332. this is a step backward. If people can discriminate because of their “religious ” beliefs this opens the door to all kinds of discrimination, which humans naturally like to do and need laws to keep us from doing.

    Posted on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4:54am
  333. Wait so atheists can discriminate against Christians? They just opened doors since some Christians consider atheism a religion….
