The far right believes its the next coming of the appocalypse that SB 1441 has passed. SB 1441 make sures that state governmental programs do not promote governmental discrimination. This is the opposite of “Faith Based initatives” that also cause governmental discrimination. Unfortunately our governor is dead meat either way in the culture war.
The religous conservatives think any of this equality legislation is just another piece of “special rights”, however no one likes to be discriminated. President Bush proposed faith based initatives which has also fostered discrimination. If you accept government money you need to be inclusive because you are accepting taxpayer money that comes from the hard work of all people of all ethnicities and cultures. Religon is importaint part of American life, however it should be privately funded and organized.
