The State of Arizona in the USA recently voted for a Christian religion-inspired law to allow shops and other service providers the right to refuse to serve gay people. The Governor of Arizona vetoed the law, which would likely have been struck down by the Supreme Court, causing an outcry by Christians that they were being discriminated against.
A few years ago I suggested to a large group of atheists that only atheism should be allowed on the planet Mars, should that planet ever be colonised. The response of atheists was that nobody should be discriminated against. I can guarantee that if Christians from Arizona responded to such a question, their response would be a total ban on all but their own religion on Mars.
The hypocrisy of Christians in Arizona is sickening. CNN recently gave space to a Christian on their internet platform to whine about their religion coming under attack via a video, because they were denied the right to discriminate against gay people based upon religion. By some coincidence a person sitting behind me as I write this post was arrested and fined for religious discrimination against gay people.
The message is simple to religious people, if they wish to enjoy their rights to practice their religion, they must offer the same right of liberty to all those different to them to go about their lives without discrimination or restriction from those of religion. Liberty works both ways.
