    How do business owners decide to exclude a consumer based on a religious belief? What criteria or method will they use to discriminate? Your Muslin example won't be near as blatant when it comes to discriminating against all who they claim violates their religious beliefs.

    Consumers will learn to work around bigoted business owners.

    take the cases we all know about

    those are exactly what this law is about

    the bakery refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding

    the florist refusing to do the arrangements for another gay wedding

    and the wedding chapel not wanting to perform gay marriages at their establishment

    those owners "can and should" be allowed to say thanks, but no thanks to the business

    in every one of those cases, the couple had OTHER choices

    this law allows that freedom to say no, without hopefully getting sued, or losing their business

    now, if their views cause them to lose business, and eventually go under because of their views, that is their issue

Jesus did not buy burglars a set of lock picks to make it easier for them to rob homes. So I am pretty sure Jesus would not his followers preforming gay weddings, selling gay wedding cakes and etc seeing how those encourage/aid more sinning not less sinning.
    Didn't know the bible had any verses regarding Jesus' views on gays. But as far as all of the others you've mention. Didn't God say Jesus was the supreme sacrifice for everybody's sins...that they would be forgiven for their transgressions?

    So now, I see so many so-called Christians who have decided to stand in for God - and have decided to judge now...and relieve God from having too much to do on Judgment Day. Right?

    exactly.. some churches will deny doing hetero marriages if they feel on or both of the couple didnt abide by the teachings of that church.. and nobodies rights were violated..

    over Pence's left shoulder, Eric Miller, distributed a flier claiming pastors could be jailed for preaching against homosexuality
    bearded one - Micah Clark, believes homosexuality is a treatable order, once freaked out about a lesbian high school student wearing a tux to the prom.
    Yes, I was interested, and I didn't think it was bad to ask you what it was instead of spending half an hour Googling to find it.

    So there were 3 people who oppose gay marriage or gay people at the signing. And this is somehow surprising? Who normally attends bill signings - opponents of the bill?

    Would that be a bad thing? It limits your customer pool slightly, but that would be your issue that you assume, yes?
