"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
Regardless of your religious convictions business owners should not be allowed to discriminate against gays just as your racial convictions don't allow you to discriminate against blacks.
What if you live in a small town in Arizona and there's only one drycleaners like there is in my small town and you have a job interview but you're gay and they won't do your suit for you.
That's not right and it never will be.
I'm sorry but you can shove your Christianity up your ass if you think it's okay to discriminate against someone based on an innate trait they cannot control.
It's no longer good enough to say "Because the bible tells me so".
They wouldn't if the bigoted bastards would have the integrity to put a sign on their doors that said: "WE ARE GIGOTS AND WE HATE FAGS" I assure you that no gay person would solicit their business.I have to wonder why a gay would even want to do business with a place like that anyway.
As for me I think I'd rather go to jail than violate my religious precepts. Once upon a time even liberal Democrats (Ted Kennedy comes to mind) cared about individual religious liberty. Now, apparently, not so much.
