    I'm not sure any of those three points raised by the ADL are correct.

    First, employment discrimination is illegal on a federal basis.  Arizona can't trump federal law.

    Second, while there are religious beliefs against charging interest, there are few that I can think of against paying interest.  And interest in those cases is almost certainly a narrowly-tailored resolution to a compelling government problem.

    The last one, also, is barred by federal employment discrimination laws.
