We serve everyone!
These signs are showing up in the windows of a very large percentage of Arizona businesses who are taking a stand against a bill that was passed in our state legislature making it legal for businesses to refuse to serve gay, lesbian, or transgender people on the grounds of fundamental religious beliefs. As a rule, I try to stay away from controversial issues but, this one has once again put my beautiful state of Arizona in a bad light across the country and the world. The bill has not been signed into law yet, and hopefully it never will but, a lot of damage has already been done to Arizona's reputation through the national coverage.
I guess the reason I'm posting this is so that you know that the vast majority of Arizonans are appalled by this piece of legislation and that all major businesses in Arizona along with our two U.S. Senators are advising the governor to veto this misguided and hateful piece of legislation.
Governor Brewer, please Veto SB 1062!
