Yeah, She Did It……Football Trumps Liberty in Arizona
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Apparently it’s okay to be bigoted and discriminate if you’re an NFL fan, provided that you discriminate against devout Catholics, devout Lutherans, devout Eastern Orthodox, any of the Christian religions that have not mailed it in and decided that they are wiser and are going to usurp the word and will of God and of our Father as passed down to us in the form of canon and in the form of sacraments, and, as I say, sacramental marriage. Anybody else have a problem with that?” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: So I have this story from the D.C. Examiner. I actually read this while I was sitting in a little restaurant at the Charlotte International Airport, Charlotte Douglas as they call it today, a major hub for U.S. Air, “NFL could pull Super Bowl if Arizona religious rights bill passes.” Oh, really? And how is that? Why would the NFL do such a thing? Why is the NFL wading into the internecine politics of the State of Arizona? I might even ask the question, for you people that are Arizonans, I seem to recall that when Arizona was awarded that franchise, lured it away from St. Louis — remember, it used to be the St. Louis Cardinals. Arizona had to lure the cardinals away from St. Louis, or whoever the owner was wanted to leave St. Louis and found a willing home, whatever the case is.
In any event, I seem to recall that when the new stadium was going to be built in Arizona, that it required the acquiescence and the support of the taxpayers of Arizona. Am I right or am I wrong? I believe I am correct.

Well, if the representatives of the people of Arizona, meeting in assembly, in their capital decided that they wished to protect their religious freedom, passed the bill in both houses by enough, substantial majorities, and wish for the governor to execute it, what is the governor to do? Does it violate the Arizona Constitution? Not the way I read it. As a matter of fact, it might actually go a long way towards defending the Arizona Constitution. So if the NFL and all the rest of them, if they don’t want Governor Brewer to sign the bill, then you ought to see if you can get the legislature of Arizona to pass a bill repealing their religious tolerance act. That’s what you ought to do. Why don’t you say what you really mean, you cowards?
But folks, what’s going on here doesn’t even have anything to do with homosexuality. This has to do with the almighty dollar. Is Arizona going to choose their own constitution, their own sovereignty, and their right to govern themselves, or are they going to choose media money? That’s it. That’s what’s in play here. Throw the issue out the window, pretend it’s not there, and follow the money.
