The point is that there are some good aspects of the Civil Rights Act and some oppressive aspects. We can pick and choose.
You're sounding like the Army officer in Vietnam - "We had to destroy the village in order to save it."

I'm not about to just deal with human right violations. I'm stubborn like that.If you want play games with the semantics then fine. Just like we forced all those bigoted people in the sixties to allow blacks to eat and drink wherever they chose and allow them to attend the same schools I will do all I can to force you to allow gay and lesbian people into your restaurant. We, as a nation, have already made the decision that discrimination is not okay and all you just have to deal with it.
There's an old joke that displays the error in your thought process.
Fellow leaves the bar after last call and he sees a young woman on her knees under a street light searching around. Being a gentleman he asks her if she needs help. She replies that she has dropped her car keys and is looking for them. He, being the helpful soul, gets down to help her search. After a fruitless hour of search he declares, "I'm afraid I've not been much help, I haven't spotted a thing. Are you sure this is where you dropped your keys?" to which she replies, "Oh no, I dropped them somewhere over there, there's just more light over here".
