    yep, and calling it disgusting is being nice . . . . .

    gotta love knowing this will not last and in the path to fix this wrong something more permanent will be established. They can kick and scream all they want, equality is winning and these little temper tantrums and retaliation bills will be squashed in the end.

    I don't think you know what the word equality means.

    If I rob a bank, is the government discriminating against me by arresting me? As a contributing member of society, you agree to live by the laws of that society or suffer the consequences of non-compliance. The municipal government grants you a business license with the understanding that you've read and understand the rules for operating a business in that jurisdiction. If you fail to comply with those rules of operation, you put yourself in a position where your license may be suspended or voided. The government didn't discriminate and put different rules in place for you that are not in place for anyone else. It is you, the owner of the business, who is deciding some rules don't apply to you, for whatever reason. If you take that position, you actively bring on the potential of regulated punishment, just like if you robbed a bank. Don't want to suffer the consequences, don't do the crime. And if you're incapable of controlling your actions, maybe stay away from banks and/or owning a business that sells to the public.

    See how easy that is?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    I expect those that support this Wackonutjob bill will never cry about another countries human rights record?

    If you run a business that caters to the public, then you ****ing cater to the public. If you want to discriminate, then open a private club, collect membership dues then you can exclude all the gays, blacks and midgets that you want.
