    Gotta love the backass republicans who voted for this.

    Why anyone would live there is beyond me.
    Great, AZ business owners can now ban GOPer pols in accordance w/their religious beliefs.

    on the other hand not letting a business discriminate against its customers doesn't hurt the business

    so why should it be an owners call
    How can a business **** with your life by not serving you?

    What best serves the larger community? Tolerance or intolerance? People can maintain the freedom to say and think what they want but a business is not a person and it shouldn't be allowed to function in a way that is destructive to the community it is a part of.

    Explain how refusing to serve someone is destructive.

    No it isnt. They just arent serving them. Now if they were taking property from gays or killing them, this would be a different story.

    Equality is limited in the same way. It does not present the same risks
    Sorry, but the argument that we must limit the rights of people to protect the rights of people is arguing an absurdity; in that, you can protect rights while actively violating them.

    AZ has plumbing and electricity, so it's better than Mississippi.

    Humiliating someone is something less than destructive? I can only imagine you being refused service because you wanted to have lunch with your gay son.

    I'm sure you would react well.
