Judson Phillips, president of Tea Party Nation, has claimed that by vetoing a bill Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has enslaved Christian business owners.

Arizona's bill, known as SB 1062, created a firestorm of controversy after lawmakers approved it late last week. Supporters claimed that the bill was needed to protect religious liberty. But in vetoing the bill, Brewer said that it does “not address a specific and present concern related to religious liberty” and that its broad language “could result in unintended and negative consequences.”

Opponents pointed out that the measure would allow individuals and businesses to discriminate against gay people.

In a blog post, titled Tyranny, the loss of liberty and Arizona's SB1062, Phillips called Brewer a “coward” for not signing the bill.

“The left and the homosexual lobby in America went into overdrive to kill this bill,” Phillips wrote. “Conservatives rallied for this bill and Governor Brewer opted for cowardice instead of courage.”

Phillips claimed that without the law people, presumably Christians, cannot control their labor.

“The left and the homosexual lobby are both pushing slavery using the Orwellian concepts of 'tolerance' and 'inclusiveness.'”

“Should a devout baker be required to create a cake for a homosexual wedding that has a giant phallic symbol on it or should a baker be required to create pastries for a homosexual wedding in the shape of genitalia? Or should a photographer be required to photograph a homosexual wedding where the participants decide they want to be nude or engage in sexual behavior? Would they force a Jewish photographer to work a Klan or Nazi event? How about forcing a Muslim caterer to work a pork barbeque dinner?”

Phillips concludes with “tyranny [is] on the march.”

Of course, none of these scenarios have happened in Arizona, where gay couples are not allowed to marry and employers can legally fire a worker for being gay.
