(NBC News)  Arizona Senate Bill 1062 is only two pages long, but there are many who say the controversial religious freedoms measure could lead to one of the longest and ugliest chapters in the history of the state.

Governor Jan Brewer is currently considering signing the bill which would allow business owners to deny service to gay and lesbian customers, or anyone else, as long as they made the decision solely because of their religious beliefs.

A handful of Republican state senators who supported the bill now say they made a mistake and want the governor to right their wrong by vetoing the bill.
