Tucson restaurant reacts to Arizona ‘religious rights' bill

TUSCON, AZ - When the Arizona Legislature approved a bill that allows business owners to deny gays service based on their religious beliefs, a Tucson pizzeria countered by putting up a sign with a clear message to lawmakers.

“We reserve the right to refuse service to Arizona legislators,” the sign says.

Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria posted a photo of the sign Thursday night on its Facebook page with a caption stating, “Funny how just being decent is starting to seem radical these days.”

The Facebook post received over nearly 10,000 likes and more than 4,000 shares as of Friday morning and their followers have responded with comments like “Where can I buy a T-shirt at” and “I’m impressed you took a stand and I thank you.”

Senate Bill 1062 passed in the House with a 33-27 vote Thursday and will be sent to Governor Jan Brewer.
