    You are confusing laws which provide for State recognition of Civil Marriage between two people of the same sex and Public Accommodation laws which provide that businesses cannot discriminate in the goods and services they provide.

    Two very different things.

    There is no compelling government interest served by denying any two law abiding, tax paying, US Citizen, infertile, non-related, consenting adults from entering into a Civil Marriage - whether they be of the same or different sexes. On the other hand Public Accommodation laws (IMHO) are an usurpation of rights of property and free association when applied to private businesses.

    The government should not discriminate against gays and lesbians under Civil Marriage laws and Public Accommodation laws that apply to private businesses should be repealed. A private business owner should be able to refuse service based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation if they choose to do so. Member of the public so discriminated against should be free to public announce in the conditions of their treatment whether it is a local news show, radio show, internet site, review site, etc. Then let the market determine whether the business will succeed or fail based on how it serves its customers.

    I have been reading thru and you have yet to demonstrate where that is/could be happening.
