WA State Bill seeks exemption to non-discrimination law

There are 1 comment on the www.komonews.com story from Apr 26, 2013, titled WA State Bill seeks exemption to non-discrimination law. In it, www.komonews.com reports that:

Several Republican lawmakers filed a bill Thursday seeking an exemption to the state's anti-discrimination laws just weeks after legal action was taken against a Richland florist who denied service to a gay couple for their upcoming wedding.

The bill introduced by Sen. Sharon Brown, R-Kennewick, would allow businesses the right to deny services or goods if they felt doing so was contrary to their "sincerely held religious beliefs, philosophical beliefs, or matters of conscience."

The measure would not apply to the denial of services to people under a protected class under federal law, such as race, religion or disability.

Clearly the Republican Party has decided that anyone who wants to discriminate against gays and lesbians simply has to shout "religious Freedom" and these politicians will gladly endorse SPECIAL RIGHTS!
