    Shame to hear this passing. The fear of the changing tides, I suppose.
    I was in Phoenix a year ago in December for my grandson's graduation from Arizona St where he received his PHD in Geochemistry.

    Business owners should be allowed to deny service to whoever they damn well please.

    This would only effect a narrow selection of patrons. Apart from gay weddings and such, there's really no need for anyone to know your sexuality.

    Actually tourism is pretty good and Moody's Analytics predicts that Arizona will be one of the national leaders in job growth this year.

    Absolutely, unless you're the sort who seems compelled to announce it to everyone in the room.

    I am afraid if Atheist businesses that denied religious customers access would not have much business.
