    I'm going to go along with the people large corps and states and cities and scholars who said it would -- I think especially the businesses who would have been affected.

    Your post makes no sense in relation to what I posted.

    What *was* the point of making this law?

    It's point *was* to allow discrimination -- and the liars are the ones not admitting it.

    Which state would that be? Which case exactly?

    So businesses, those people you think are bastards that would discriminate against everyone, are against discrimination. Oh, how wonderful today is with all these liberals admitting they have no basis for an argument.

    It's not. Their objective was to damage Pence and delegitimize their opponents.

    I'm talking about anti-discrimination laws. If business by a wide margin won't discriminate against anyone the case for anti-discrimination laws is more or less non-existent. Libertarians have been saying for the last forty years that the market place can handle discrimination, and here you guys are saying the market place is handling the situation. Go ****ing figure libertarians were right about the free market.
