SB 1062, the controversial bill that passed in the Arizona senate last Thursday, has spawned thousands of calls and emails to Governor Jan Brewer’s office in response and opposition to the legislation. According to the Arizona Republic:
“SB 1062 proposes to expand the state’s definition of the exercise of religion to include both the practice and observance of religion. It would also allow someone to assert a legal claim of free exercise of religion regardless of whether the government is a party to the proceedings. The legislation would expand those protected under the state’s free-exercise-of-religion law to any individual, association, partnership, corporation, church, religious assembly or institution or other business organization.”
