Saying that it "creates more problems than it purports to solve," and arguing that it "does not address a specific concern related to religious liberty," Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed Senate Bill 1062, which would have made it legal to discriminate against gay, lesbian, and trans people on the basis of religious liberty. Brewer also scolded legislators for making this bill a priority before addressing more pressing needs.
This is a big victory for the LGBT community and a huge defeat for the gay-hating crazies. It's not like Brewer is particularly evolved. She's not. But she caved to the political and economic pressure nonetheless. If Brewer couldn't sign a bill like this, what governor can? And that might be enough of message to discourage other legislatures from even trying.
