    There isn't. But there are laws that says that a person who hates black people can't refuse to rent them a room at their hotel, for example.

    Which is what is being talked about here. BUSINESSES being disallowed to discriminate in their open to the public businesses. Not laws disallowing people to discriminate in their private life.

    If I am Jewish, can I refuse to serve someone who has a swastika on their face?
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    The law doesn't apply to prison inmates.

    LOL. I was just curious to how the law applies in this situation. I have a feeling the Jewish guy would be at fault for not serving the person.

    Maybe they should have thought a bit harder before opening a business to the public and the deciding to practice bigotry under the guise of religious beliefs.

    Nobody forced them to do anything. They took it upon themselves to serve the public.

    I'm not positive, but I believe so as that isn't denying them based on a race, national origin, religion, disability, or Gender (pretty sure Gender now qualifies as part of these laws as well).

    You would have guessed wrong. From a similar case...

    Elane Photography also suggests that enforcing the NMHRA against it would mean
    that an African-American photographer could not legally refuse to photograph a Ku Klux
    Klan rally. This hypothetical suffers from the reality that political views and political group
    membership, including membership in the Klan, are not protected categories under the
    NMHRA.

    Both Nazi's and the KKK are political/social groups and not part of the classifications listed in the law.
