iREPORTERS SIGNED UP

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Wednesday that she has vetoed a bill that would have allowed businesses that asserted their religious beliefs the right to deny service to gay and lesbian customers.
Opponents said it encouraged discrimination against gays and lesbians, while supporters argued it allowed for religious freedom.
Did Gov. Brewer make the right call? How will her decision potentially affect other states looking at similar legislation? Do you think businesses should have the right to choose who they serve? Should a company be able to refuse service to same-sex couples because its religious beliefs do not coincide with customers' sexual orientations? Are religious freedom laws just a license to discriminate?
