    Nobody in this case argued that the Constitution entitled anyone to the services of private businesses. That is a strawman.

    What was argued in this case is that the state of Colorado had a legitimate and compelling state interest in promoting nondiscrimination. Supreme court precedent that interpreted the limits of free exercise of religion allows for a state to limit an individual's free exercise of religion if the state can prove a compelling state interest that is not too burdensome to the individual.

    Why is it when folks like yourself say you want to talk about the Constitution, you are only interested in the 1791 vision, not the over two hundred years of court precedent that interprets the document and informs how it is carried out in practice today?

    nobody said they were but they have been killed, beaten, fired, desowned, denied employment/housing etc
    and the most important part is they have been denied equal, human and civil rights just like blacks and that what this discussion is about so the comparison is 100% accurate and factual.

    Facts prove your post wrong again.

    Do you make moral judgements against blacks for being black? Against Jews for being Jews? How can they be who they are and NOT offend people like you?

    If they werent being discriminated against or in need of those protections, *this thread wouldnt exist*.
    Another crap sandwich avoiding the constitutional rights of all.

    Nobody has a constitutional right to deny services. People have a constitutional right to free exercise of religion and so far the court has not affirmed that extends to denying services to people because they are gay.

    Why not embrace it? Why be afraid of your true feelings? Just admit that you think gays are the same as child molesters. It will feel so much better when you drop the pretenses and let your true feelings out.

    You are so disengenous that I can't find the words to accurately describe you. You have taken my words out of context proving you have such a weak argument that was the only way you could counter. Disgusting.
