Laws establishing poll taxes and literacy tests didn't say anything about poor black people, either.

Voiceofreason01: While the law may not have specifically targeted LGBT peoples, it was clearly intended to provide protection for businesses and individuals attempting to force their religion on and to discriminate against other people. This is unacceptable. If your church doesn't want to let two men get married that's fine but as soon as you start running a business you have to abide by the rules of secular society.


The bills sponsors openly stated that a case involving a same-sex couple was the inspiration for it.
But yeah...the liberal media totally misrepresented it because wargarble.

The "liberal media," where every newspaper has a business section but not a single one has a labor section.

On one side are Arizona residents seeking to live their lives in accord with traditional moral positions embraced in the Bible's Old Testament - positions that condemn homosexuality

I'm no Bible scholar, but didn't the same book in Leviticus that purportedly condemned homosexuality say it was A-OK to own slaves?

RminusQ: kronicfeld: Laws establishing poll taxes and literacy tests didn't say anything about poor black people, either.

I had a student (who has advanced some really awful ideas in the past) say yesterday upon hearing about the Voting Rights Act, "What? We're not allowed to have literacy tests anymore? So any idiot is allowed to vote? There should be a minimum IQ." and I basically told him to shut the hell up.


You should've told him he'd fail any such test.

uh...right. The bill didn't specifically mentionLGBT peoples but it was clearly intended to discriminate against them. I guess the point I was trying to make is that even if you accept the interpretation being argued in the article it's still a terrible law that should never have made it as far as it did and deserved to be slapped down hard.
