Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) hopes his states governor will veto legislation that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in denying gay and lesbian customers.
Flake tweeted Saturday, I hope Governor Brewer vetoes SB 1062.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) is now wrestling with whether to sign SB 1062 into law as both the states Senate and House have passed the bill. The legislation, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, would allow business owners to operate according to their own religious beliefs.
Religious conservatives say the bill is necessary so people can practice their own faiths. Critics say the bill would allow for businesses to discriminate against gay and lesbians.

You must mean Senator RINOFlake.
Another RINO trom the AZ wet-panty brigade heard from.
So, Flake wants sodomy to be forced down the throat of people who believe the Bible?
Another reason to GIVE ONLY TO CANDIDATES AND NOT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
the Granola state moves EAST to AZ. Fruits, FLAKES, Nuts.
It is NOT an anti-gay bill; it’s a bill that allows freedom of conscience. The Alliance for the Defense of Freedom, a well known organization that defends religious freedom nationally, helped write the bill.
However, the AZ legislature failed to put out press releases before the passage and thus allowed the media to define the bill, so politically, it will not fly.
not a pretty mind picture
Well-named Senator. Add fruit and you have granola.
But we (Christians) can and should be able to deny services for a queer WEDDING
THAT should be the stipulation, not because they're queer.
If our nation actually wanted God’s blessings, we’d be striving for obedience to His word. In other words, we’d be going Ugandan/Russian on them.
But our nation has fallen so deeply into depravity that it obviously doesn’t WANT His blessings. So we deserve whatever wrath God pours out on us.
Flake is obviously part of the problem.
Another senator who forgot that his responsibility is to his state, not to the federal government or liberal special interest groups.
An aptly named individual.
How dare Arizona contemplate letting their people skip the battle of the gays! Why, there’s already a list of targets - err, businesses, which would be confronted for their audacity in having religious beliefs, and plans in motion to quash those beliefs as they do not conform to the ideal world our betters have thought out for us.
Religious freedom - it’s bigotry! At least it is to the projectionists who are bigoted against religious belief that does not conform to their worldview.
The funny thing is, had all these idiots kept their mouth shut, there was little chance this law would have passed the governor’s desk, at least in my opinion. But by blasting her from all corners and painting her into the corner, I don’t think it is in their best interest and likely will blow up in their face.
State laws requiring segregation of blacks from whites are another matter and are unconstitutional (14th Amendment). The feds have a Constitutional right to interfere with state laws that require segregation of blacks form whites.
However, the feds have no other Constitutional authority to interfere with any other form of discrimination on the state level and the feds have no Constitutional authority to interfere with the God given right of individuals and businesses to exercise their freedom of discrimination (freedom to choose) as they see fit.
We will VETO Sen. Flake as soon as he is up for re-election. Sadly he still has four more years to practice his religion of devout RINO ism.
Brewski should just keep on thinking about it till the smoke clears, and then sign it.
They’ll forget about it after a couple months.
You elect these morons what do you expect.
This is is as bad as if nor worse than McCain.
Another point on Flake: Obviously, to Flake, majority rule be damned! In Jeff Flakes mind , 1-3% of societies perverts get to Force up to 97% of us to support their perversion.
As an infamous “Revvvvvvvvrund” once said “the chickens will come home to roost for the “flakes” of the world someday.
Flake barely beat out Richard Carmona, a radical lib who ran a Tucson hospital into the ground. That was our choice. It was horrible.
