    Religious Freedom Or Intolerance

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Calfornian iReporter KCRep says she finds the whole controversy over Arizona's recently passed Religious Freedom Bill "ridiculous", but worries that the ideals behind are reminiscent of other prejudices. "This entire issue reminds me of the 1960s, by that I mean the discrimination against African-Americans in this country," she says. That said, she feels the government should not get involved in the issue. "A business should do what they feel is right for them and a customer should do what's right for them. The government is getting way too involved in personal matters," she adds.

    Here in California I see signs in front of business' all the time that say "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". I guess that's not the case in Arizona.

    The thing I don't understand is why would any business refuse a paying customer unless they are super hyper religious in their beliefs. Then again, why would any person being discriminated against even want to patronize that type of business.

    I find the entire issue ridiculous but, I also think government should stay out of it. I don't think is has anything to do with civil rights but more to do with intolerance on the part of those "religious" business owners. Shame on them. Judge not lest ye be judged!
