"Gay" in the News: Arizona Bill is Misrepresented
Breitbart publishes correspondence from a coalition of law professors, claiming that the Arizona legislation is being "egregiously misrepresented".
This group of academics sent the letter to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer prior to her veto of the bill. From a law professor's perspective, the bill apparently represented "...a uniform standard to be interpreted and applied to individual cases".
The opposition to the bill does not seem to address this idea. It is uniformly characterized as "anti-gay discrimination" and "hateful bigotry". Most of the media coverage of this controversy seems narrowly focused on that idea.
