    Arizona's 'religious freedom' bill vetoed

    Freedom FROM religion

    I graduated from Prescott High in the mid-70s. I know AZ is conservative and always has been. But this is just mean.

    I believe that we need to separate religion from politics in this country. The "oppression" that religious conservatives feel now is a backlash to the incursion into politics that religious conservatives began in the late-70's. It's time to step away from politics, stay in the churches, and pray for the lost, however you define it. But don't legislate discrimination. We did that with blacks and have come to our senses. Don't legislate hate against gays. My wife and I stand for everyone's right to love whom they choose. If it does not meld with someone else's view of "right" or "wrong", they don't have to accept it. But Jesus did not turn away those with whom he disagreed. Jerry Falwell did as have all the religious conservatives who followed down that trail.

    Let's stop the hate and open the channel of love.
