Re "More intolerance, Arizona-style" (Editorials, Feb. 26): Americans put a high value the right not to be discriminated against in employment, housing, and transportation. You cannot deny someone a service on the basis of religion, nationality, race, ethnicity, and, in many states, sexual orientation.

Religious arguments were used frequently history as a basis for discriminating against Mormons, Catholics and blacks. If you do not think Americans have the right to discriminate against blacks, women, Mormons, the same should be true against gays.
