    You obviously have given the matter deep thought and been unsuccessful. Better luck next time around.

    Again, it depends on what state you live in. In California, you can apparently walk in to a restaurant wearing swastika lapel pins and demand service. Should they ask you to remove the pins, you can even respond with a "I'm not going to do anything a nigger tells me to do" and the ACLU will defend you and the California courts will side with you.

    It depends on what part of California you're in. In the north, absolutely, it's a liberal fantasy land up there. In the south though, that would never fly.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    LOL....."Democracy" does not require protection for bigots. A Democratic society has the same right as every other society to set values and morals within the boundaries of the Constitution to decide what kind of society we want to have.

    Apparently? So there's some case you could link?

    A case from 1988. And it also happened in California, one of the few states that protect people based on "creed".

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Not really "courts" but "court".


    The rest of the story appears to be that the case was not appealed because of the insurance company and so not ruled on directly by the California Supreme Court. There appear to be found here -->> Opinions Related to Unruh Civil Rights Act | California Supreme Court Resources

    That's not true. Many, if not most, states protect people based on creed.
