    Absolutely correct, I do disagree with the law. I don't think that special privileges should be afforded to people spouting the magic words "sincerely held religious beliefs" so they can choose to discriminate against people based on race, or religion, or sex, or sexual orientation, or etc... If an individual wants to discriminate, they shouldn't hide behind the Bible to do it.

    Public Accommodation laws should be repealed in general. Repeal being the only option since the regulation of commerce is a function of government as specified in the Constitution (interstate) at the federal level and inherent in the power of the State (10th Amendment).

    It is all based on respect for the beliefs of others. The same beliefs the left chooses to hide behind.

    That said, I think it's ludicrous. And doesn't your constitution state that - to paraphrase - no law shall be adopted that promotes or denies religious observance?

    Even if it wasn't idiotic, administration of such a law will be a nightmare.

    You do have the right to take your business elsewhere. Why would you want to force someone with that kind of attitude to bow down to you? Just pick-up the phone book.

    I find it interesting that you feel that being a business owner or in customer service as so subservient. Is it only to gays? Or to all patrons?

    OK. Interesting. I'm pretty sure the chain's management wouldnt sign off on that tho...damages the bottom line...she's not even getting someone else to serve them...she's walking away and they dont spend their $$.

    So it was a band-aid, a 'turning the head away.' I'm not discrediting you or her, but it is almost a classic example of trying to ignore bigotry rather than confront it.

    even Mitt Romney tweeted for her to veto the bill lol
    he has joined many republicans against this insane bill that would even if passed would eventually get destroyed by the courts and rightfully so
