    "Classes?" that's just insane

    Yes, maybe you've heard of them? The were listed in the CRA of 64.

    Race, color, creed, sex, or national origin

    You are already in a protected class. Most all of them.


    Even sexual preference if you are in a state that has those protected classes.

    You're protected as being one of those classes of people - in every instance.

Most offered to sell him a cake that he could decorate on his own. And if he hadn't been so rude and obnoxious to them, insisting that they weren't standing for equality or they weren't being fair to him, etc., then all of them likely would have offered to sell him a cake that he could have added the exact words he wanted to them. He wasn't turned away for being Christian, or even really being against gays, but denied service on a type of cake those bakers didn't actually make, one with what they considered "hateful" message on it. So long as they wouldn't sell such a cake to anyone, there was no discrimination.

    This is a very perplexing situation. Liberals really should support RFRA, if they understood it.

    Why would you think businesses who don't want to do business in Indiana are bastards? They understand protecting their employees from discrimination. Most do, anyway.

    This law was a threat to that.

    BTW: I'm a business owner myself, and have been for decades.

    It's pretty hypocritical that a lot of these businesses boycotting Indiana over what is stupid misunderstanding of RFRA are perfectly content to business with, say, communist China.

    Any actual evidence for this, or just taking a wild guess based on your personal partisan beliefs? There is no evidence that those who support same sex marriage would be more accepting of religion being used as an excuse to deny service to gays. I wouldn't. I don't think anyone should be able to use their religion as an excuse to discriminate.

    It's pretty hypocritical for you and the other cons to complain about doing business with communists - when just about everything you're touching right now comes from there.

    The businesses here have a much great affect on what happens in their own country and employees than purchasing good from the world's largest exporter of goods.

    it might make sense to boycott a business that is found to discriminate... but a state wide boycott that necessarily includes businesses that do not discriminate?... that's downright idiotic and childish.

    Fortunately if you chose to quit supporting it [or practicing it if that were the case] you would be forgiven and wouldn't have to worry about that facet at all.
    I know I would prefer hell to a heaven that expects people to bow to insane rules. The company would be much better in hell anyway, if that is really how it works (which I highly doubt). Sounds like you're pretty sure you won't be there, so at least there's that.
