The bigots pushing SB1062 in Arizona and their enablers over at Faux "news" got the treatment they deserved from Jon Stewart on The Daily Show this Wednesday.
February 26, 2014

After first letting Arizona lawmakers and their defenders in the media have it for the "morally repugnant" anti-gay bill that manged to pass through their legislature and then had many of them backtracking after voting for it, the Daily Show's Jon Stewart wondered where in the world the Christians in Arizona could have gotten the idea their religion was under attack.

Cue the yappers over at Faux "news" with dire warnings about how Christians are under assault in the United States.

STEWART: Why would religious people overreact to that constant barrage of apocalyptic paranoia and outrage? God only knows.
