So inasmuch as there's clearly many bigoted politicians, religious figures, and business owners solely wanting to piss on LGBT rights, rest assured there are many who have no problem returning the favor and rejoice when the photographer is forbidden from discriminating.
1. The constitution (supreme law of the land) agrees that the federal/state governments have an interest in regulating commerce.
2. Court case after court case have agreed that the federal/state governments have an interest in regulating commerce.
3. Legal scholars have agreed that the federal/state governments have an interest in regulating commerce.
Why is it that you disagree with the concept of law as conceived by the people? Never mind, weren't you the guy who didn't see how using child porn hurt people?

That's really what this bill was all about. Certain activists are trying to limit religious freedom by demanding that all decisions be made on a purely secular basis. That's totally unacceptable in a free nation and those seeking such restrictions should be really cautious because once they get what they want there has been a precedent set to dispatch with other liberties.
Just because you agree with the totalitarians in charge doesn't mean that they aren't totalitarians.
Well, the issue really shouldn't be about religious rights, but property rights as a whole. I would strongly support a law allowing private property owners to discriminate for any reason. And no, it would not be the end of the world and slavery wouldn't appear out of thin air.
