“Religious liberties and the protection of our religious liberties is right. Right now, there’s a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it’s against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs”
— Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R.), in an interview with Yahoo’s “The Fine Print”, discussing Arizona Senate Bill 1062. The bill granted businesses and individuals the ability to refuse service to people or groups without repercussion from the state, in cases where serving said people would “substantially burden” the free exercise of their religion. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R.) vetoed the bill last month.
