    I meant the actor who plays Sheldon, Jim Parsons is gay. Hopefully that clarifies things.

    It's not "society" it's other human beings in general, and other human beings don't have to like what you like to do. Nor do they have to serve you.

    The actor? They did a movie of the Foundation Trilogy? Wow! Who plays the Mule? What's the name of the series/movie?

    You have no clue what you're talking about. Your ignorance is painful.

    It's in the first sentence:

    A who's who of top Indiana business executives called on Gov. Mike Pence and legislative leaders

    Ok, bucko -- tell me what I'm wrong about, rather than just ad hominem.

    No person or particular group is a "protected class". Every person is protected by pretty much every protected classification in laws. You can't discriminate by race, any race. Doesn't matter if someone is trying to deny you service based on you being white, black, Asian, Indian, Native American, or any other race, which means every person is covered. Can't discriminate based on sex. This means that whether you are legally a man or woman, you cannot be denied service. You can't discriminate based on religion (or lack of), which means that no matter your beliefs, you are a "protected class" if someone denies you service based solely on your religious beliefs.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    I meant to add this --

    The point was there are plenty of people and companies all across the country who are against this bill.

    Derrrr.
