Memo to Arizona’s “Religious Freedom” Fighters: If I Don’t Like Your Mail I Might Not Deliver It
Yo, Arizona, do you really want to go down the road where anyone and everyone can refuse services to people they perceive as violating their “religious freedom?”
Let’s pretend I’m your letter carrier and I’m on my route walking toward your house. While sifting through the envelopes I’m carrying I see a letter or a solicitation from the NRA or Planned Parenthood. I’m opposed to one or the other so — per my “religious freedom” and the bill sitting on Governor Jan Brewer’s desk — I refuse service because delivering that letter would go against my “religious freedom” and I toss it.
That’s where you’re going.
Do you want letter carriers to decide what mail you get based on their “religious freedom?”
Seriously? Think about the ramifications.
(P.S. Here’s the definition of ramification.)
Oh, and I love how Republicans seem to have driven over their infamous rebranding plan.
