An open letter to the Governor of Arizona. Day 2. She still has not vetoed the bill that goes against everything our country stands for.
Dear Governor Brewer,
As a newer resident of Arizona, I implore you to veto B1062. Do you realize that the rest of this country, with perhaps the small-minded minority exceptions of homophobic cowards, and some legislators in Kansas & Texas, are looking down at Arizona right now? Do you realize how embarrassing it is to live in a State where such bills are even brought to the table?
With all due respect, as a decent human being, and citizen of the United States of America in the 21st Century, how on earth could you possibly not veto this bill?
If I am not mistaken, this bill gives business owners the right to refuse service to gay people, or anyone else they decide to fear or discriminate against, solely based on their “religious beliefs?” You have got to be kidding.
If not for just the immoral aspect of this bill, think of the economics of Arizona. I can guarantee that the majority of the population of this country, and perhaps other forward thinking countries, will veto their vacations here in this beautiful state, on principle. And an irresponsible decision will also jeopardize the Superbowl being here next year.
Yesterday, I was walking in downtown Tucson, and was touched by the majority of businesses that displayed this sign in their windows. It made me proud to be a resident.
Please don’t wait a few days. The longer this foolishness lingers, the deeper many of us want to bury our heads in the Grand Canyon. Please bring us back up to the rim, where it is open, and the view is spectacular. And everyone is welcome to see how beautiful it is to be here.
Please Veto 1062
