    Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993

    The Federal government (above) and 20 states (below) have passed Religious Freedom Restoration Acts.

    If the home owner is having an open house or running a bed and breakfast, you might have a point of comparison - otherwise, not so much.
    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.

    Why? They both use all the same services and they are both denying entry to gay individuals.

    Your home is not a business operating under a business license issued by the municipality and governed by laws and regulations for the operation of that business. If, on the other hand, you list your home for sale and an agent has an open house, that becomes a business function governed by the municipality's laws and regulations and the real estate agent must abide by them - likewise, if you open and offer your home as a bed and breakfast, you must have a business license and as such you are governed by those rules and regulations.

    I'm no aware of any municipality in the United States that requires you to have a business license to reside therein.

    No one forces anyone to go into a business. You have a business you are open to the public.

    These arguments in favor of the bill are putting lipstick on a pig.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    If you shine enough light on this issue, you can watch the cockroaches (class warfare advocates) scurry from the light with the simplest of questions:

    “Can an individual discriminate against a gay business owner and not give him business?”

    it really is that easy. there is no shortage of services being withheld, so no problem is in need of the meddlers to solve.

    this isn't a religious issue at all. We have freedom to have really bad ideas, and to live by those really bad ideas.

    You have a right to use your property as a business.

    You're equating a private residence with a business open to the public. Apples and dump trucks comparison.
