Good. While I think she did so more so out of fear of the backlash she'd get, I'm glad she vetoed it.

Yay, this is fantastic. Of course she should have not let it get this far.

Take that bigots. You can't discriminate because you're a bigot. - this had nothing to do with religion.

What is right is right and what is wrong is wrong.
I think she did it for all the right reasons, and liberals and gay advocates need to give her the credit for vetoing it without the buts.


Quoting RandRMomma: Good. While I think she did so more so out of fear of the backlash she'd get, I'm glad she vetoed it.

 SO SHOCKING.

Not really. Totally foreseeable result, after the NFL threat to pull the Superbowl and the financial implications of that.

The "buts" come in from the way she has acted in the past. Considering her feelings on certain politics, I wouldn't have been surprised if she had signed the bill into law. JMO

She had to let it get this far to veto it. She couldn't do anything until then

 You're right, it sucks that it wasn't about just doing the right thing but hey we'll take it. The Gan marriage bans, the discrimination based on sexual orientation are going down like dominos and that is a good thing.

 No, what you should say here is "Take that, Christians.  You are not entitled to any respect of your religious or biblical beliefs as to what constitutes a marriage and whether you want to provide creative services for something that does not.  You need to shut up now.  Tolerance runs only one way and we will target every one of you and force you out of business if we have to, because we are bullies."
