    just another example of how it is unfair and wrong when "they" do it, but it is OK when "we" do it.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Quite an insightful article on this subject of discrimination. The Ingrained Intolerance of Liberal Tolerance | The American Spectator

    Soooo, here it is, the other side of the coin. For all of you who cheered the veto of the Arizona protection of religion bill, we now have the flip side. Governor Martinez' hairdresser refuses to do business with her any more because of her views on gay marriage. Anyone want to try to defend this bigotry? After all the claims of Equality, it seems that equality really ISN'T the point after all.

    Personally, I'd sue his panties off just to make a point.
    If gays don't want to do business with those who oppose them that is fine. If businesses want to refuse service to homosexuals that is fine too.

    Telling people they have to serve others is wrong, and IMO it creates a slippery slope.

    Slippery Slope? Were you absent from school when the discussed the civil rights "sit ins" and "bus rides" of the 1950's and '60's?

    What do you think that was all about?

    This isn't bigotry. Bigotry would be if the gay hairdresser refused service to Martinez' because of her gender, religion etc. Also he is refusing service to one person not to an entire group.

    Yeah, this isn't the same as the Colorado baker case. This isn't gender or sexual orientation based discrimination, this is political discrimination.

    Splitting hairs here, aren't we? The argument, when it was the gay community who was getting the short end of the stick was all about equality and fairness. Now that we're seeing the other side there seems to be some squirming.

    We already had that conversation in the 1950's and 1960's. Your side lost.

    The comment was that business should be able to refuse service to whom they wish too...that may be so for No Shirt, No Shoes, No Sevice, but not if your gay, or Black, or blind, don't ask for service.

    so yes is part of the discusion. Because you are unable to decern it as so, does not disqualify my comment.
