Some state slogans make you scratch your head but "The Bigot State" is perfect for Arizona. Remember back when Arizona didn't want to recognize Martin Luther King Jr. Day? Well, they are at it again. This time their legislature has passed a law that will allow businesses like restaurants to refuse service to same-sex couples. My first two thoughts on this were:
1) How would you know that they are a couple and not brothers or sisters out for brunch.
2) Any business that refuses legal money from paying customers is not only conducting bad business but are idiots.
When will Arizona learn? I can envision water fountains with a "Straights Only" signs on them, followed by LGBT groups getting the fire hose turned on them. Haven't we been here before? When you see the old civil rights photos, don't the people on the wrong side look complete moronic inbred assholes? Anyway, congrats Arizona, you've gotten Alabama and Mississippi off the hook. (for now I'm sure they'll be quick to get their title back)
Thomas Jefferson wrote that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" and nearly 200 years later Martin Luther King Jr. reiterated that "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: - 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'”
So once again Arizona is on the wrong side and looking like moronic inbred assholes. I will never understand why we have a beautiful Constitution but people will fight every part of it because it's not the America that they want, therein destroying the very foundation on which this country was founded and built.
PS: I saw a bumper sticker that read "No, no, no God hates FIGS" if this indeed is the case there are many people who will have to answer for their misinterpretation.
