Arizona Passes Anti Gay Bill

UPDATE: Governor Jan Brewer Vetoed This Homophobic Bill

The Arizona Legislature has finally shown their true homophobic & hateful beliefs by passing a bill that would allow business owners to deny service to gay & lesbian customers because of  distorted religious views. The bill passed the state House of Representatives by a vote of 33-27 & is headed to Republican Governor Jan Brewer who vetoed similar legislation last year but has expressed the right of business owners to deny service. It’s a very sad day for Arizona to spend the time & money on such hateful legislation that just shows how frightened small minds still remain on the wrong side of history. On Friday LGBT activists held a protest march to the governor's office carrying signs that read "God Created Us All Equal" & "Shame on Arizona." Our favorite reaction was from Tucson-based Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria posting a sign stating "We reserve the right to refuse service to Arizona legislators." Pizzeria manager Evan Stevens stated, "It's a ridiculous bill. Arizona has much bigger problems than allowing businesses to discriminate against people." The Arizona bill SB 1062 is similar to proposals in other states including ones that failed in Kansas & Idaho. Another anti gay law is under consideration in Utah. Indiana tried to get an anti gay bill on their 2014 ballot last week but thankfully it failed. Let’s hope that Governor Brewer stands on the right side of history & vetoes this horrendous bill.

Steven Yarborough is the Arizona senator who introduced SB 1062. He is a republican who is up for reelection this year. Rep. Steve Yarbrough, Dist. 17, is the primary author of the SB 1062. Reps. Nancy Barto, Dist. 15, up for election 2014, and Bob Worsley, Dist. 25, up for election 2014, both co-sponsored the bill. Please place a note on your calendar to donate to their opposing candidates before the November elections. Help us to remove intolerance from the Arizona legislature. We can take out the bullys when we all work together.

Remember the names; Steven Yarborough, Nancy Barto and Bob Worsley. They should be expelled out of Arizona and make it a big media buzz.
