I don't agree with the bill. I'm not a lawyer, but it seems to me the bill would allow exemption from any serious law based on a conflict with religious beliefs. It's too far reaching. I would say that the Mormons have a shot of relocating to Arizona and getting back to polygamy if the bill becomes law, for instance.

Be that as it may, it does legalize discrimination and Arizona is feeling the heat for it. From the private sector. Without involving federal law, or any authority other than the all mighty dollar. I'm amazed that any Conservative would be upset over this.
