    Like I said....sometimes you have to take a stand for what is right. There is value in society saying we demand that people be treated fairly and equally and that bigotry and discrimination will not be tolerated.

    Forced commerce is not right or treating people fairly, so your entire line of reasoning makes no sense to me.

    It isn't forced commerce. No one is forcing them to open their doors to the public. That is what they choose to do. They can close shop any time they want. What they aren't free to do, however, is write their own rules simply because they open a business. They have to abide by the laws of this great country.

    The laws reflect our values. Repealing them would, IMO, be a reflection that our values have changed and that society accepts discrimination. So I guess I reject the premise that repealing them will have no ill effect. IMO, they'd signal a corrosive shift in our values had already happened, with behavior to follow.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    Governor Pence had to cancel public appearances for the next several days because of the protests. They should have explained the law to the people before signing it and making it official. It appears there is much misunderstanding about this....

    Titled: Indiana lawmakers seek to quiet firestorm surrounding new law.
    Greetings, Polgara.

    Sadly, the liars seem to have won this round, but the fix is not difficult. Hate to see this in my native state.

    Looks like it's back to the BIL Zone for ya.



    Oh, and Kamikaze Kruz has just come out defending Pence--maybe Pence can be his VP candidate.
