    What do you expect? I'm discussing legitimate legislature and its effects on commerce, and you're going "but that's not faaaaaaaaaaaaair".

    Okay? So what? What does that have to do with the topic? Regardless, your business wouldn't last a day in the marketplace. Let's be realistic, such a person wouldn't open a business in the first place. They couldn't get past the licensing (the office is full of sinners) nor the rental of the facilities, and hiring? Forget about it.

    Under this bill, a business can deny based upon even the nuttiest things that are in the bible.

    It is a stupid bill, unnecessary and embarrassing to my state.

    It's only embarrassing in that that they failed to protect the property owners rights.

    If enough people feel that way, that business will fail from lack of demand.

    Oh nonsense. Again, someone that fanatical about their religion isn't going to have a public business in the first place. What's embarassing is the opposition to the bill.

    Longing about tolerance and stuff. Probably meant "subjective" anyway. Ah well.

    First of all, unless you are a sociopath (which granted the official diagnosis has yet to come in) emotions are a part of life and of being human. You like to dismiss them as mush and pretend you don't have any, or that yours are somehow more legit, because your emotion of choice is anger and baseless insults. How does that play out for you in real life btw?

    Promoting fairness has served as a legitimate basis for existing legislation. Just because equality makes your eyes burn when you see it does not mean that promoting its presence in our laws is purely an emotion plea. It's pragmatic.
