(Phoenix, AZ) -- Apple is joining a growing chorus of industry leaders calling on Arizona's governor to veto a controversial "religious rights" bill. Apple is preparing to open a manufacturing plant in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, which would create some two-thousand jobs. The measure would allow businesses in the state to refuse service to gay customers based on the business owner's religious beliefs. Governor Jan Brewer hasn't said whether she'll veto the bill, which has sparked protests from residents and backlash from the business community.
