Through the United-states constitutional rights, citizens are entitled to their own religious freedom. That being said, everyone is able to receive service from any business as long as they meet the requirements for service. This article nevertheless goes against certain individual freedom rights given to every citizen in Arizona. I believe that the Arizona bill is upright disrespectable to various citizen within the state. Even if your religion forbids one of same-sex relationship, it should not follow through the services offered. The business is meant to offer benefits for both sides but to refuse others based on their sexual preference is irrational.
Everyone of every religion despite his or her sexual orientation should not let themselves become a victim or witness to such scandal. I believe that essentially this discrimination will only in effect reduce stability within the state itself. I believe that even though religion is an important aspect to many in their way of life, religion itself should not be allowed to affect others who do not believe in it. In what way would it be fair to be discriminated against for something just because your religion does not abide by someone else’s decision? Should people with tattoos or plastic surgery also not be approved of certain services just because your religion is against it? Should a Sikh business owner not provide service to everyone just because they cut their hair and it’s against their religion?
I believe that as religion becomes a set of beliefs and rituals, which one abides to within their lifestyle it does not necessarily have to extend to the involvement of others. In addition, its absurd to think that services such medical treatment can be denied. This issue can be a matter of life and death and a conflict of religion belief should not be able to interfere with it. A matter of such caliber should be able to bypass conflicts such as these to a certain extent.
The Republicans say that this bill was put in order for religion freedom rather than discrimination but I believe it will only generate more conflicts. I believe that nothing good can possibly come out of it; United-states are only bound to have an increase in the amount of discriminations within the country. Religion should not the cause of such conflicts among citizens but instead clear the spiritual path for those in who believe in it.
