Washington – Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently voiced her opinion about the veto of a measure in Arizona that would have permitted businesses to refuse services to individuals who are gay based on their religious beliefs. As reported by the Huffington Post, Bachman accused the gay community of having “intimidated politicians” and bullying Americans.
Bachmann is quoted as stating in an interview during the Conservative Political Action Conference last week, “There’s nothing about gays in there. But the gay community decided to make this their measure… I think the thing that is getting a little tiresome, the gay community, they have so bullied the American people, and they’ve so intimidated politicians. The politicians fear them, so that they think they get to dictate the agenda everywhere.”
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed the bill, SB 1062, last month. Bachmann previously stated of the decision in a ABC News & Yahoo’s “Fine Print” interview, “I was sorry that she made the decision, and it’s because I believe that tolerance is a two-way street and we need to respect everyone’s rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs.”
