But other states are considering similar legislation.

 

In Oregon, an initiative is underway to allow businesses to refuse to participate in same sex ceremonies -- if it's against their religious beliefs.

 

Teresa Harke is behind the "Protect Religious Freedom Initiative."

 

"I'm not involved with the issue in Arizona.  It's my understanding their language is much broader.  There's an effort to characterize what we're doing to that , but ours is very specific because of the issue, how does someone opt out of same sex marriage without facing bullying or backlash or fines from the state."
