Re "Arizona's gay-refusal bill vetoed" (Page A1, Feb. 27): Despite attempts to slant the story, the bill is clearly not an anti-gay bill. If you read the bill, you will not see the word, gay, in the bill.

The bill simply would have tightened legal standards on imposing damages against a defendant for not providing a service if the business owner claims a religious conviction for not providing the service.

The law appears to be actually subject neutral, but it is about protecting someone's religious conscience.
