Three Arizona Senators Regret Voting For Gay Discrimination Bill, Urge Veto

Three state senators in Arizona have come to their senses and realized that perhaps voting in favor of segregation might've been a mistake. 

ABC 15 reports:

Sen. Bob Worsley says he and Sens. Adam Driggs and Steve Pierce sent a letter to Brewer Monday asking her to strike down the legislation allowing business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to refuse service to gays.

Worsley says he was uncomfortable when he voted for the bill. Both he and Pierce called their votes a mistake.

The letter comes on the heels of a weekend of major protests against the bill in the state as well as national backlash from all walks of life who can't believe Arizona's thisclose to instituting a new era of Jim Crow-type laws.

She would LOVE to sign this bill.

Does anyone expect Jan Brewer to do the right or smart thing? I sure don't.

Good news.  I hope this helps on some level.  This law must not pass.  If the Governor signs this bill into law, there should be a mass uprising.  We cannot stand for this kind of victimization & discrimination.  It must end.

Absolutely!  Religious persecution of any kind must be stopped once and for all!
