    Let us know when you have something on topic
    The more you throw it in my face the less I give a **** about what gays do or don't do.

    They can do whatever they want in their bedrooms.

    I don't think sexual orientation should be a protected class. Where did that idea even come from?

    For those that think discrimination should be allowed, let me paint you a picture and see if you are still interested.

    Lets say the U.S. is 90% non-white, 10% white. You live in a town in which almost all of the businesses are owned by non whites. 90% of the businesses do not allow white people inside.

    How would you feel then? Would you still call the U.S. "your" country? Would you want to go fight and die in wars to defend "your" country? Would you call yourself a proud American? Would you still think laws allowing discrimination make the U.S. a better place?

    In this hypothetical, would the state be prohibited from discriminating? People who argue that businesses should be free to discriminate do so on the basis that the government would not be free to discriminate. Segregation and apartheid were primarily government policies and were enforced by law.

    So white straight men would be a protected class?

    nope

    the law is not allowing the business owner to illegal discriminate, break the law and violate peoples rights

    but again please post your OPINION, FANTASIES and PHILOSOPHIES and spin it anyway you like, facts will defeat them every time

    Wow, you do a wonderful job at skating around an argument, but a piss poor job of hiding it.

    Have you seen gays having sex on the streets? I havent. Nor have I seen straight people doing so.

    Sex has as much to do with gay relationships as it does with straight ones....it is only one part...and the longer the relationship, the less it matters (generally).

    Do you look at straight couples and imagine them having sex? Is that what you think when you look at them? About their sex lives? Yes? (ew). No? Then why do so with gay couples?

    Uhhh, I guess the government would be neutral in this scenario. The point is about allowing individuals to discriminate on their private property per "freedom".
