Staff Reports

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.

Rocco’s Little Chicago pizzeria posted this photo to Twitter with the message, “Funny how just being decent is starting to seem radical these says.”

“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.
