Before ANY of you read this post, please, keep in mind that I saw this article and felt like blogging about it. I don’t need comments about how this news site is this or that. I saw the article and wanted to say something about it. Bottom Line.
Can someone, anyone tell me what the year is? I thought the year was 2014, but I’m constantly reminded that we are still in the Civil Rights Era.
How can I say this? Arizona is passing a law allowing discrimination. Here’s a quote from the article I found on MSNBC, “The Arizona legislature sent a bill to Governor Jan Brewer’s desk Thursday that would carve a massive hole into state law allowing business owners to turn away gay and lesbian customers, employers to deny equal pay to women, or individuals to renege on contract obligations–as long as they claim to be doing so in the name of religion.”
The last time I checked, wasn’t Church and State supposed to be separate? I know you are still looking at this and saying that how does that bring up the issue of Church & State? If you are asking yourself that question or even questioning me, then you will never understand. Yes, Arizona as a State isn’t themselves doing this per se, but they are leaving it up to business owners. The Arizona Legislature is taking this country back 70 years, because this is exactly how Blacks or Non-Whites were treated. What are they going to allow next, let the LBGT community be bitten by dogs, sprayed with fire hoses? This is ridiculous. As this country tries to move forward and make the playing field level for ALL People regardless of Race, Religion, Gender or Who you chose to call your “Boo”, we are set back because individuals in this government has agendas.
I know there are those of you that are saying that it’s wrong in the eyes of God, but who are you to judge? You judging someone else is a sin. A Sin is a Sin is a Sin. Bottom line. There is no way around this, even if you try to use the Religion Angle. Every individual on the Arizona Legislature should be fired. I’m sure that they all have skeletons in their closets, but to the eyes of the public, they are “lilly-white.” Look, I’m not condoning it or agreeing with it. I’m all for just looking at an individual as a human being and leaving the judging up to the man up stairs. The future America for our Great-Grandchildren is going to be a site to see. The United States might be a communist nation and Russia will be the “New United States.” America is a melting pot, but the government is trying to make this “pot” one kind of “soup.” Our forefathers didn’t intend for America to be in this state and I’m 100% confident they are looking down on us now and are ashamed. You can’t blame it all on the current or previous administration, its a conglomerate of everyone since President Johnson. President Kennedy did what he could and was trying to steer this country to what our forefathers wanted it to be, but he was shot down, literally. There are many people that say it’s a conspiracy, but I’m not going to get into that.
I will end it with this, we are a nation built up by a host of Races, Religions and “Boo’s”, now is not the time to try and segregate, we need to unite and RETURN the Super Power that scared the SHIT out of the rest of the world. We are no longer that. No ONE is scared of the United States anymore. It’s ridiculous. We need to do better America.
