    That would be discrimination on Race......how does this apply with this situation again?

    If that's all that's at stake, then Indiana can amend the law to protect gays from discrimination except in cases of cake and flowers. I would take a large bet that's not going to happen. It's bigger than cake and flowers.

    Wow, another coincidence. They're rampant all over Indiana. The poster Henry said he has a gay friend who was coincidentally refuse medical treatment by a physician in Indiana within minutes of Pence signing this law.

    Color me skeptical, but all of these anonymous anecdotes stink to high Heaven.

    But this is all a ridiculous had waving exercise anyway since the Federal government and 19 other states have the exact same law in place, and it is not the blanket authorization to refuse service to gays. Hell, this law was introduced to the congress originally by Chuck Schumer.

    Mornin JM. That would be 30 other states. Yep, an Chucky Cheese was the one to bring it. That's who Harry Reid is picking to Lead the Demos. Harry just chose the New Yorker over Durbin the Chicagoan.

    The poster I responded to indicated that a business shouldn't be forced to serve a customer they don't want to serve.

    So, are you two stating that race or religion should be protected but sexuality should not?

    No. Both are selectively applied by Christians.

    Judges shouldn't be elected I agree. How do you believe they should get to their respective positions then?

    That story in your signature line. Did that news make it to the Netherlands?

    If they're behaving themselves, then of course the law should require the restaurant to serve them.
