How little things change

Even with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's veto of a controversial discrimination measure, Sen. Marco Rubio suggested on Sunday the issue still isn't resolved. 
"The notion that someone because they are black gay would be denied service at a restaurant is something that Americans don’t support, conservatives don’t support," the Florida Republican said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "The other side of the equation is imagine now if you’re a Southern Baptist or a Catholic or even evangelical photographer, who does not believe, because of your faith, in serving blacks gay marriage. And because of that, you don’t want to provide photographic services to a black person gay marriage. Should you be sanctioned by the state for refusing to do so?" 
Rubio then reiterated that he did not believe that black gay Americans should be denied services at businesses such as hotels or restaurants, but that he also didn't believe a caterer or photographer should be punished for refusing to provide services for a black person gay wedding because of their religious-held beliefs.
"We’ve got to figure out a way to protect that as well,” he said. (strikethroughs added- WLJ)
