    OMG Malloy is such an embarrassment. Seriously.

    Yes, I'm sure there was a lot of state travel to Indiana for CT government employees.

    OMFG on CT's religious freedom law. OMFG. I should laugh at his ignorance, but I have a lot of friends who still live in CT and I feel sorry for them now.

    Malloy needs to get back to his efforts to capitalize on Sandy Hook and leave the lawmaking to the smart people.

    By the way, what was the physician's name who refused to provide medical treatment to your friend? Surely you found that out by now.
    I suspect that doctor was the product of a lively imagination, created to support a fable.

    So this is a vegetarian restaurant? Or is your friend fine with the killing of animals so long as they arrive in 4x4 pre-sliced squares?

    You can decline service to people for any reason.
    Really? Let's see if your friend gets away with "you'll have to leave, because I don't like black people."

    If you're a hairdresser, nobody can come in and demand that you cut their hair and you have to do it. If you're an accountant, nobody can come in and demand that you do their taxes and you have to do it. There are no laws that say you must serve just anyone who wants to be served.
    No, but there are laws in most if not all states that you cannot deny service for purely arbitrary reasons like "I don't do taxes for blondes."

    should the Muslim owner have to make them " a bacon cake with men kissing on it"..????.

    this is quite a question to a liberal...

    to me the answer is NO.. the Muslim owner should be free to say " Im sorry, its against my religion, there is a nice butcher down the street that Im sure will make it for you.. have a nice day"


    thats the spirit of the law..
    A Muslim business owner can refuse to serve bacon, but they can't refuse to serve bacon to black people but serve bacon to white people anyway. Hope this helps your confusion.

Especially right center smack dab in Central WASP Indiana. I've spent a great deal of time in Fairmount Indiana, I've seen what they deal with. I get stink eye from the locals for the way that I look. And this law is just what the locals will use to make their feelings "extra known" to them.
    I call total BS, sorry dude. Pence signed the law two days ago. It doesn't go into effect immediately.

    Every time I turn around, I see new reasons to be damned happy I don't live in Connecticut any more. Maybe fewer liberal weenies from Nooengland will lower the average IQ of my state temporarily by driving through it.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Arbitrarily jettisoning those that you don't like the looks off from a business that serves the public isn't freedom. That's some nazi era ****.

    Nope, not a vegetarian restaurant. She, like I, loves animals and doesn't appreciate jokes about animals being made into meat.

    She can't say "You have to leave because I don't like black people". Black people are of the protected class. Have you been following along?

    What are the laws that say you can't deny service for purely arbitrary reasons? If I own a cleaning service, and I clean the house next to you, what law says I have to clean your house just because you want me to if I decide I don't want to do it because you have kids and I don't like kids? That's arbitrary.
