Fox News host Shannon Bream repeatedly asked guest Bernie Goldberg on "The Kelly File" Wednesday night why businesses could not discriminate against gay people.
According to Mediaite.com, Goldberg and Bream were discussing Arizona’s SB 1062 bill, which was recently vetoed by GOP Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (video below)
Bernie explained to Bream how businesses do not have the right to deny service to gay people because of civil rights laws.
Bream, who was a lawyer before becoming a broadcaster, wondered aloud why gay people could not just go to another business that didn't discriminate instead of fighting discrimination, noted CrooksandLiars.com.
"I mean this is America, we all have freedoms," stated Bream. "Why would you do business with somebody, no matter what your personal issue was that they had with you, why would you wanna force them to do business with you? Why not just go down the street and spend my money with somebody who supports me and is kind to me and wants to help me and provides these services for me?"
Bream's background includes a degree from Liberty University, a Christian college founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, who once blamed the 9/11 attacks on homosexuality in America.
