MSNBC.com The Last Word -Watching The Arizona Bill Go Down In Flames Isn't Just Cause For Celebration. It’s A Sign Of Change. Upworthy Brandon Weber
"In the slight chance that you haven't heard, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed the anti-gay bill couched as "religious freedom" that both the state's Senate and House passed. This clip is from "The Last Word," and my takeaway is summed up by host Lawrence O'Donnell himself: "I'm not sure we've seen anything quite like this, where there's a governmental move against gay rights and there is an uprising." "
GOP’s “religious liberty” scam just died: Why Brewer’s veto is so momentous
Once upon a time, the right thought it could push its agenda behind claim of religious freedom. Those days are over Salon .com, Feb. 27, 2014 by Brian Beutler
Unfortunately this is not the end of this issue as the Religious Right continues to fear monger over the issue not just of Gay marriage but of Gay rights. In many states in the USA the basic rights of gays are not protected under legislation or state constitutions .
For instance there are many examples of the anti-Gay fear mongering message of the Religious Right and Conservatives exposed at Rightwing Watch .
For example dominionist quasi historian David Barton claims that God, the Bible and Jesus hate Gays
RWW News: David Barton Says The Bible Prohibits 'Gender Bender' Day in Schools
And David Barton is in fact a Domionist in that he believes Christians must control all apsects of American culture and society and that there is no room for the secular viewpoint or perspective since everything must be God and Bible based.

So it is not surprising that those on the extreme right are not bothered by reality since they adhere to an alternate reality in which the evil Secular Humanists and Liberals etc. are involved in a conspiracy to destroy Christian America. So they see Gay rights as part of an attack on Christianity and America's traditions, culture and values which they believe are Bible based. So those in favor of Gay rights for example are part of this larger conspiracy or have been duped by the propaganda and lies of the Secular Humanists. The fight they are involved in is a spiritual battle of Good versus evil and they see themselves as on the side of God and set backs in their agenda are either a test from God of their resolve or as the work of Demonic forces.
