    And the pussy Pence signed it in private (no press or public allowed) -- but these folks were there - cheering him on...

    Yes, and? I fail to see exactly how three legislators convinced the entire legislature to pass their evil intent. Perhaps you can enlighten me.

    I'm all for individuals refusing to frequent individual businesses for whatever cause that has their panties in a wad. But states boycotting states, that's just stupid and partisan politics. Lord spare us from idiots with a cause.
    one butthurt individual ???

    Since he was a fictional character there's no real life involved.

    Because a small group of people that are remarkably irrelevant in the grand scheme of things don't want to serve gays.

    Try to explain to a minority that society will start treating them like human beings when society is damn good and ready. Can't get that pesky gubmint involved, after all!

    You're protected as being one of those classes of people - in every instance.
    Now, see, this statement of yours presumes the answer to the above question was a "no", and in fact it wasn't a "no", but a "yes".

    Minorities have a remarkable track record of making things happen without government. Why don't you give them a little credit for a change?
