Several prominent business executives called on Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to veto a controversial bill; according to a February 25 article in the Los Angeles Times.

Executives from Apple, Marriott, and the 2015 Arizona Super Bowl committee have all urged Brewer to veto the bill.

The bill; SB1062; gives business owners the right to refuse service to gays and others based on their religious beliefs. 3 Republican lawmakers changed their minds after originally supporting the bill.

Christians familiar with the bill viewed it as another instance where religion was used to divide; not unite.

“Religion is a big tent that is used to gather; not separate. You cannot change a lifestyle until you change a life. The Bible talks about Jesus’ encounter with a woman with a less than pristine lifestyle. He did not become a critic; instead he had a conversation that changed her life. Christians should speak out against this bill because discrimination is never right.”

The governor reportedly is in no hurry to make a decision; according to the San Francisco Gate.

Should Christians support the bill?
