Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer headed home Tuesday after five days in Washington to a state that has become embroiled in a national debate over religious and gay rights because of a bill on her desk.

The Republican governor is expected to arrive in Phoenix in the afternoon and likely will spend the next day or more pondering Senate Bill 1062 before deciding whether to sign or veto the legislation. …

I guess the point of this article was to drum up some support from a bunch of fags to be at the airport to harass her at her arrival?

Sounds like the most feasible conclusion so far.

California already passed laws giving gays more rights then others and now they are passing laws giving illegals more rights then citizens.

I’m so fed up with this crap. Is this even remotely the most important issue we face?

And she also has the threat of the NFL pulling the 2015 Superbowl if she does sign.

To me... That would be be a deal MAKER! I would double dog dare the National Felons League with their faggoty agenda to break that contract.

Protecting religious freedom is as important an issue as there is.

It’s a dumb bill and it was not well thought out. I live in Arizona, I am an elected official in AZ and I am a Republican in Arizona. I pray she will veto this bill..I believe she will and the faster it’s forgotten, the better.

Can you tell me what the Republicans stand for in 2014?

Don't know the particulars, but I've heard this as well. Hope this is an honest assessment rather than seeking the easy (read: cowardly) way out.

So the rights of militant gays are more important than the First Amendment. Hmm.

Who owns the business?...private owner of the state? If I own the business the I reserve the RIGHT to serve whomever I want. The word 'serving' could mean anything from dressmaking to fixing autos, to repairing stoves or mending roofs. In America, a free nation, free from tyranny...unless there are laws prohibiting such or such and I know of no such law that says I must "serve" someone only the state approves of...I am free to take or give my service elsewhere or to whomever I choose.

Straight or gay...if you are not invited to a private 'party', you should stop whining an go somewhere the invitation is open.

It is to the businesses that are being sued into bankruptcy, yes.

Correct. All of this screaming and hissyfits are her cover for the Veto that’s coming.

Sounds like the course of action that will ensue.

But this bespeaks the lack of unity among even conservative Christians. Oregon already has a judge that ruled that it’s legal for militant gays to force religious people to act contrary to their beliefs, contrary to the First Amendment. Has to stop somewhere.

I would be surprised if this woman did not veto the measure. I don’t think she is any more reliable than her two “Republican” senators from AZ.

I meant the gay opposition is a waste of time. I support the religious freedom issue.

I hope we stand for freedom. I hope we stop legislating everything like the other side does. I hope we stand for lower taxes and cutting government spending. Everyday I work my butt off trying to get the Federal government off our backs. I want the EPA and ESA defunded. I want to take back our public land before there is nothing left of our lifestyle here in the West. The fact is that this was a vanity, meaningless bill, not necessary here in AZ as a situation like the one that happened in New Mexico could not happen here. One more thing, as a Jew, I think this is a slippery, slippery slope. I want her to veto this bill so we can really talk about this issues that mean something.

As always, playing right into their hands during an election year. We never ever ever learn.

That’s what people like Boehner, McCain, McConnell et al do. Romney still, too.
