Mitchell asked, “You have an anti-homosexual law Uganda. And now Arizona is looking into whether it will allow gays and lesbians into restaurants. Doesn’t this show other countries how we feel about homosexuality in our states?”
Kerry responded that he was “counting on” Brewer to make the right decision on the bill.
“I cannot imagine how the law would withstand the scrutiny of the Supreme Court of the United States,” Kerry said. “So I would hope that she’ll make the right decision.”
Kerry added that “this is not an easy path for the United States. But what’s important is we are on the path, we have stayed steady, we have made enormous progress in the United States and we will stand up for people’s rights anywhere in the world because that’s who we are in the United States of America.”
