      It seems to be a Christian offshoot group that is using the ALEC levers of power.

      Center for Arizona Policy, a self-described “conservative, pro-family” lobbying organization, which has previously supported legislation to prohibit same-sex marriage in the Arizona and U.S. constitutions, to use government funds to support religious schools, and to inhibit a woman’s right to choose.
      Arizona has one of the highest concentrations of ALEC legislators of any state in the United States- at least 50 of the 90 legislators now serving are ALEC members.
      Two-thirds of the Republican leadership in the Arizona House and Senate are on ALEC “task forces” that write“model” legislation for state legislators around the nation.
