Secular Coalition for Arizona Official Request for Gov. Brewer to Veto SB1062

View the original veto request here.

 
The Honorable Janice Brewer
Arizona Governor
Executive Tower
1700 West Washington St
Phoenix, AZ 85007

Dear Governor Brewer:

On behalf of the Arizona nontheistic community and the Board of Directors of the Secular Coalition for Arizona, I ask you to veto HB2153/SB1062.

It is clear that the intent of the bill backers is to enlist the machinery of government and public policy making to codify religious privilege for some, over others, into secular law. The bill would legally elevate one class of citizen over another class of citizen on account of religious belief and would result in state-protected religious discrimination.

Liberty for some should not rightly be granted at the expense of another. Please reject state-sanctioned religious discrimination and veto SB1062.

Regards,

Zenaido Quintana
Chair of the Board
