    seems like that was the case, for sure.

I support businesses having the right to choose who they will serve for whatever reason. I also support free speech and freedom of the press, and I would encourage people to take out full page ads in newspapers identifying businesses who choose not to serve certain groups of people.
    Problem with that is imagine the logical conclusion when one minority is so hated NO ONE will service them - the jim crow south or jews in various times and places. Whether you approve of the civil rights act or accommodation laws, so long as there are protected groups, *everyone* must be protected...else it's not *equal* protection as required under the 14th

    And the civil rights act will not be repealed...so adding LGBT to the list is only fair and sensible

    Actually the intent of the law does matter. Roper v evans established that laws born from "animus" towards a group are unconstitutional...which this clearly is

    It does matter too. Imagine being told by your government that discrimination against you and only you is acceptable

    The context here is Indiana and guess what. Indiana doesn't have a law protecting homosexuals from discrimination and a lot of businesses opened before such laws were in place elsewhere
