    I posted a link to the text of the bill. Please point out to me where the term "homosexual" appears.

    I think the reasonable answer there is for the folks who see discrimination go on in a business to say something to their friends and family about it and suspend business with that business. Of course at some point it would be good to let the business know why they're no longer getting dollars from you.

    You'd be surprised at how quickly businesses respond to that.

    Good point. I say let the business owner exercise his free speech and say openly (in front of clientele) why he/she is rejecting this customer. If he is willing to take the hit then fine if not then he is a hypocrite and will suffer accordingly. His customers will determine the marketability of his position. I can add this, I only use Walgreens Pharm, because they openly they support gay rights.

    That makes not sense. Freedom for a chosen few or freedom for everyone?

    It can mean many things.

    For instance, male gynecologists are getting hammered in the marketplace by having women sexually discriminate against them and choosing female gynecologists instead. No one is forcing women to stop sexually discriminating. Can you imagine the uproar if laws were enforced which stopped women from sexually discriminating in this manner.

    The bible says that to be around a menstruating woman is a sin, so I expect any of these phony christian business owners that want to discriminate to make sure that they test all females to make sure they aren't on their periods.

    Because it is in the bible, and if you don't, you are a sinner.
