SB 1062: Misinformation campaign in full swing

Here we go again

It’s no surprise that the Arizona Republic has embraced its usual technique of bold headlines, multi-page contrivances posing as news reports, and zealously oversized photos on the issue of SB 1062  — employing the irresponsible tactics the liberal newspaper blatantly uses to promote its myopic dual agenda. Columnists and editorialists have donned their jackboots to facilitate marching in lockstep with the attack strategy — irrespective of the facts

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act modifies the definition of exercise of religion and allows a person to assert a free exercise claim or defense in a judicial proceeding regardless of whether the government is a party to the proceeding. Read the legislative fact sheet here.

After reading the bill, it becomes clear that the effort to demonize people of faith is what the left is hard at work to accomplish.

The Center for Arizona Policy has done a masterful job of explaining all that is entailed in this legislation that strengthens protections in Arizona law to defend against religious discrimination. Included is a fact sheet, summary, background and talking points.

The bill is on Gov. Jan Brewer’s desk and action is expected early this week. Call her office today and let your voice be heard in support of religious liberty. This administrative staff list omits the names of her behind-the-scenes key advisors such as liberal extremist Grant Woods (formerly John McCain’s congressional chief of staff) and political strategist Chuck Coughlin (another McCain crony who also lobbied for Woods during his 1990’s stint as Attorney General) — both of whom have her ear. In this USA Today video, Brewer gives a clue to the advice she is receiving as she calls the billvery controversial.”

Faith-based conservatives see this bill not in the framework of “controversy,” but as an issue of religious liberty. Opponents have hijacked this discussion via deceit and reckless reporting. 

Grant Woods was quoted as saying, “Hopefully, from my perspective, she’ll see this will put Arizona in a national negative light, and it shows Arizona is really going in the opposite direction on important issues at a time when the country seems to be moving forward.” Woods, who frequently talks with Brewer about legislation and other matters, will urge her to not sign SB 1062.

Legal experts Joseph La Rue and Kerri Kupec with the Scottsdale-based Alliance Defending Freedom wrote this fact-based ‘Our Turn’ column demonstrating the need for this legislation by citing a disturbing case in New Mexico that, under current law, could be replicated in Arizona. Take time to read it.

    I thought current law already allowed businesses to reserve the right to serve refuse to anyone. OK, kidding aside. Can’t a business refuse to provide services to anyone so long as it’s not based on race, gender or religion? Have we added gender identity disorder to the mix when I was sleeping?

    Great article from the twosome at the Alliance Defending Freedom. I’m stunned that the homosexual promoting Arizona Repulsive would print it.

  3. Maggie says:

    CBS News is reporting Arizona’s two RINO Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake have urged Brewer to veto the SB1062….which of course, they call “controversial.” Anything the RINOs and leftists object to is now preceded by that supposedly sullying description. They called SB 1070 “controversial” and Joe Arpaio is always described that way, as well. When hurled at them by libs, it’s a label that is worn proudly by actual conservatives who are onto their tricks.

      Flake never blinked Maggie, he was out against SB 1062 almost immediately – ahead of McCain. As Flake has blatantly betrayed Arizonans with his multi-year amnesty campaign for 30 million criminals, he has now betrayed his faith.

      This is primetime SRAZers. Call the Governor. Then email her.

    I’d like to know how John McCodger has recently taken to tweeting when he has been quoted as not even comfortable using a computer.
    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/09/why-doesnt-mcca/
    “I read my e-mails, but I don’t write any,” McCain told Fortune magazine. “I’m a Neanderthal — I don’t even type. I do have rudimentary capabilities to call up some Web sites, like the New York Times online, that sort of stuff. No laptop. No PalmPilot. I prefer my schedule on notecards, which I keep in my jacket pocket.”
    Now he tweets? Let’s agree that his staffers cover his butt.

  5. Matt DeGennaro says:

    Jan Brewer is strong in her use of the correct terminology, not backing down during this interview with ABC News Correspondent Jim Avila, when she insists the term “illegal immigrant” is the proper description to use in relation to our invaders. He says it’s “insulting.” Let’s hope she is equally as committed to doing the right thing regarding this legislation. The McCain influence doesn’t show here. Could it be there is hope yet?

  6. ZOO says:

    CHECK THIS OUT: The pro-invasion pro-amnesty anti-enforcement trio of Bob Worsley, Adam Driggs, and Steve Pierce are ALREADY backing down on SB 1062 and have ask Brewer to veto it.

    • Kimball says:

      So much for Worsley as a co-sponsor of SB1062. Those who trust him should have their heads examined. Obviously as members of the LDS faith, he and Driggs are capitulating to the leftward whims of their church and their exalted Mormon senate leader/liar Jeff Flake! The church was always considered among the most conservative until it realized it could have a broadened base with illegals and expand even further (past God’s law) to include giving tacit blessing to the homosexual agenda.

      Sodomy was the cause of destruction in the Bible. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for their widespread homosexuality. Lot’s wife was warned by God not to look back upon leaving her city and was turned into a pillar of salt for her disobedience.

      Now sodomy is celebrated and paraded. Churches, which are tasked with preaching the word of God, embrace it. Our children, beginning in kindergarden, are unable to escape the ever present onslaught through what passes for “education,” entertainment and even in cartoons. The LDS Church is not alone in this. The Catholic church is a haven for pedophiles and same sex relationships within its cloistered walls. Offending priests have long been given cover and allowed to have new parishes of young boys as the shameless hierarchy move the deviants from one location to another. And both of these churches (along with others lamely preaching “love” instead of truth) have joined forces with the illegal invaders of our country. More flocks of sheeple to tend.
      Count me out!!

    No surprises here. Little Jeffie “Beefcake” McFlake and his McDaddy both supported the homosexualization of the American military. Both support the resulting agendized destruction of the military, with the blatant persecution of straight males and faithful chaplains. McNasty’s wife and daughter have been publicly campaigning for the deviant overthrow for years. When Sec’y Hussein Hagel cuts hundreds of thousands of military jobs (to protect the money for food stamps, free phones, etc), do you think it will be the deviants who are shown the door or the straights?

    I haven’t seen or heard from the AZ4 on this bill to protect AZ families and businesses from queer harassment. Have I just missed it? Maybe they haven’t heard about it, in their cloistered, insulated DC apartments? Maybe they, like the McTwins, have forgotten they supposedly represent AZ-onans?

    Keep letting the governor know how AZ feels about protecting our own by supporting this bill, and maybe she will find the courage to ignore the lobbying by the non-AZ “special” interest groups.

    God bless America.
