TUCSON, Ariz. — A local pizzeria in Tucson, Ariz., has a message for state lawmakers who, on Thursday, approved legislation that allows business owners to assert their religious beliefs by refusing service to gays and others.
“As a longtime employer and feeder of the gay community, Rocco’s reserves the right to eject any State Senators we see fit to kick out,” was a follow-up tweet.
The legislation now heads to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer and puts Arizona back at the forefront of a polarizing piece of legislation four years after the state enacted an immigration crackdown that caused a national furor.
The measure is SB 1062.
