    You have to be a special kind of nuts to want to go through a trial and have these people in your life for months or years and relive the experience over and over again. Yeah....Rosa Parks suffered the consequences of her actions too at first.

    What did it accomplish anyway? LOL We've already covered this. Gays have the right to fight for their rights just like blacks and women.
    We already covered this, and you dropped it.

    Sexual orientation has nothing to do with race and this is not the new civil rights movement.

    Again did this couple have a cake at their wedding?

    Yes she did...in the back. But she fought for the right to 'the cake of her choice.' So that all blacks could have the cake of their choice, instead of having fewer choices or more inconvenience in getting their 'cakes.'

    It may not be my property, but as long as a property houses a commercial business it has to keep to the laws of the United States and one of those laws is that it is not legal for them to discriminate. And I am not insisting on acting on the rights of other people. I am insisting judges sentence/smack down companies who are bigots when it comes to human rights of other.
    This going back to "Whites Only" signs quite misses the point. It wasn't just restaurants where this happened it was in every facet of law and society. If this guy had a sign saying "Whites Only" how long do you think he'd remain in business? And there would be no need for Blacks to settle it through the courts.

    These things tend to work them out for themselves and there is no need to plug up the courts. If he runs a jerk business people will let him know soon enough, and he will wind up very lonely.

    Maybe you were, maybe you weren't. But it's teh gays that really seem to spring a libertarian into action. Just as an example, there's another thread right now where some guy was ordered to pay his fiance $50,000 for walking out on the marriage after she left her job and home for him. Calls for government to get out of marriage? Nada. However, start up a gay marriage thread and the libertarians flood it with the "government out of marriage now" one-liners. Never fails.

    There are specific protected classes and they are very limited. Except for religion, they all apply to equal rights for PEOPLE.

    What other types of discrimination would be appropriate? Which ones are not valid?

    Is there anything to stop legislators from making it illegal?

    It's not a new law. It is a new group added to the law.

    I will admit I was too busy being disgusted by the law that allowed it to happen to think of that. Sorry. Really though, why can't we just talk of an individual issue involving marriage without falling back on our stance on marriage? It's not like that is going to happen.
