    Define flaunting his sexuality.

    No, I get that. I thought you were jokingly endorsing it. Sorry if I misunderstood.

    Do you have the same problem when a hot young woman is flaunting her sexuality?

    Ahh.

    You know, back in the 60s and 70s Disneyland didn't allow hippies in. I stopped doing business with them. I don't hate Disneyland, nor did I ever press to see that overturned by law or court, I still won't go there or take my kids there.

    When I'm eating, pretty much. When I'm eating with young ones, definitely.

    I don't get that. I always felt like as a parent to prepare your child on how to deal with the realities of the world they are surrounded by. It seems wiser to teach them how to handle it in a way that is healthiest for them rather then to protect them from it.

    Honestly, if your spiritual beliefs are that bigoted, then **** your spiritual beliefs. Maybe you should open a church instead of a business. Oh wait... same thing.
    That's not at all what this bill is about.

    The idea was to create a protection for businesses that might get ambushed by 'crusaders'. For example, I have a client who makes custom ceramics. She makes all kinds of stuff with angels and crosses and other symbols generally associated with Christianity. If someone comes into her shop and wants a pentagram and goat head on a platter and she chooses not to make it because she's a Christian and opposed to such imagery she should be allowed to refuse that particular job.
