Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
The Federal government has no power to prohibit discriminatory public accommodations simply because they are discriminatory or mean-spirited. It must have a good reason to limit the rights of the business owner, therefore Federal accommodations laws need to be crafted as narrowly as possible.
The government is not protecting the rights of those being discriminated against, but impinging on the restaurant owner's right to discriminate because it believes it has a legitimate interest in doing so.
