Tony Perkins: Hysterical Liberals Are Lying About Arizona's Hate Bill

"Work isn't a 'faith-free zone' -- but try telling that to Arizona liberals. There, the Left's propaganda machine is in full force, cranking out one distortion after the next in what should be a non-controversial debate over religious liberty. The hysteria started late last week, when the state's legislature gave the green light to a bill that protects business owners and other for-profit entities from being forced to provide a service that violates their beliefs. Unfortunately, the Left is looking at the bill through the skewed lens of same-sex 'marriage,' instead of the many ways it could be applied to shield Americans of all faiths from religious censorship or coercion. They claim the measure would be used to deny homosexuals service of any kind -- which is a selective reading meant to scare people into opposing a reasonable bill. But real equality -- the kind the Left insists it wants -- demands that everyone, not just a vocal few, have the ability to live and work according to their conscience. If you're against the Arizona bill, then you're really against First Amendment rights. Arizonans will find out in the next day or two which side Governor Jan Brewer (R) is on. The state's leader has until Friday to decide if Arizona will push back on the oppression of religious liberty -- or join it." - KKK-affiliated hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.
