AZ bill would allow discrimination against gays, unmarried women and non-Christians

An Arizona bill would allow businesses to discriminate against non-Christians, gays and unmarried women.

Experts are warning that a bill making its way through the Arizona legislature would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people, unmarried women or even non-Christians.

Republican state Sen. Steve Yarbrough has said that he introduced Senate Bill 1062 because a “modest clarification” was needed in the state’s religious-freedom law, according to The Arizona Republic.

  1. Arizona’s most corrupt state senator, Steve Yarbrough (R-Chandler), who uses his position to write charter school bills to steer state funding to his Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization to benefit himself financially. It’s like writing checks to yourself.

    Unbelievably, this allegedly does not violate Arizona’s ethics rules
    for legislators!

    Yarborough benefits from tax credits he helped design. He is the executive director of the state’s second-largest tuition tax-credit organization, Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization, or ACSTO.

    An examination of the most recent tax return for ACSTO shows Yarbrough receives a salary of $96,000 per year. ACSTO also paid for his car. It paid $426,000 to a company called HY processing, which Yarbrough serves as part owner. The organization also paid $127,000 in leasehold improvements and $50,000 rent to the landlord. Yarbrough owns the building.
