    OK, now that the issue of gay marriage has been settled, maybe the country can move ahead on less pressing issues, like ISIS, income inequality, unemployment, health care, illegal immigration, you know, all of those minor issues we're facing.
    Right the **** on.

    Public accommodation laws. They vary by state. But generally revolve around characteristics people have no control over.

    Very hard to say because each state organizes things differently. Many states added public accommodations statutes following the Federal action, but others may have older, relevant statutes elsewhere. There may also be local ordinances that wouldn't appear in the state statutes, and the function of the law might differ from what you would expect just by reading the statutes, in which case you'd have to look at case law. It's very messy, which is why it is often difficult to find convienent 50-state summaries that explain how some aspect of the law works in each state (and like a science textbook, by the time you get one completed, it is often already out of date).

    True law can never condone such disgusting behavior. The documents which do so and purport to be laws are only corruptions of law, and no one is bound to obey them.

    OK, forget it.

    Unless they don't want to suffer the consequences of violating the law.
