Homosexual Bullies Show Their True Intent in Pressuring Arizona Governor (Harrisburg) — The intense pressure leveled at Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to veto that state’s improvement to their already existing Religious Freedom Restoration Act again exposes the true intent of homosexual activists and their supporters. They want to force all to “celebrate” their lifestyle by using the rule of law to require that those with deeply held religious beliefs lay those beliefs aside and participate in validating the homosexual lifestyle. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) is appalled, but not surprised, by the tactics. ” Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was bullied into vetoing a bill that would have addressed two ambiguities in their 15-year-old Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Eleven law professors from distinguished universities said Arizona’s SB 1062 did not say businesses can discriminate for religious reasons. But homosexual activists would rather ignore what the bill actually says, lie about the details and proclaim their victimhood. Homosexual affirming corporations like Apple and American Airlines, as well as homosexual affirming politicians like John McCain, Jeff Flake, John Kerry and Mitt Romney all joined the bullies’ cry for a veto. Their intent in Arizona was to squelch religious freedom, even as their intent in PA with the passage of HB or SB 300 would be the same,” commented Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA. False claims of victimhood sounded loudly throughout the cries for a veto in Arizona even as false claims of victimhood abound in the push for passage of HB/SB 300, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the PA Human Relations Act. Yet, has one documented case of a homosexual losing a job or being evicted from an apartment because of the identity they claim been produced within the last decade? No. However, there are documented cases of businesses being targeted when these type laws have passed in other states. Examples include Chicago-area King Spa & Sauna , The Twilight Room Annex, a Portland, Oregon bar, and American Eagle. “Falsely crying victim by the bullies won this round, while the real victims were ignored,” Gramley concluded.
