    To grasp how Vladimir Putin is progressing in his campaign to overturn the post-Cold War order in Europe, it's worth looking beyond eastern Ukraine, where the Kremlin is busy consolidating a breakaway puppet state.

Discrimination law gone wild

Here’s a novel idea: A law legalizing discrimination.

It comes from Arizona, although other states have been rushing to make it their very own. The legislature approved a bill last week that would recognize religious beliefs as a defense in a lawsuit.

The bill comes from the backlash over same-sex marriage. Its supporters believe business owners opposed to same-sex marriage on religious grounds would be forced to provide services for a gay couple’s commitment ceremony. Critics note, however, the same law would allow a business owner to refuse to hire a woman on religious grounds.

The bill prompted a restaurant owner to post a sign: “We reserve the right to refuse service to any Arizona lawmaker.”
