Another nice angle on Arizona GayBan veto: in conflict between religious right and big money

The GOP chose money.

When even some of those who voted for the bill backtracked when they realized what it would cost the state in lost revenue, it tells you how deeply held their "Christian" homophobia beliefs are: a little less than skin deep.

At best, they figured they could throw a bone to the rubes in their base without a penny in government spending, but didn't realize it would cut into the profits of their true masters.

I hope the far right makes more bold moves like this.

Also, their anti-gay stuff makes it harder for anyone to take seriously Washington pontificating about Putin's anti-gay laws. The only thing the far right doesn't like about them is since they're in Russian, they can't copy and paste them directly into their own bills.
