    All Indiana is saying is, go ahead and practice your unnatural sexual lifestyles behind closed doors. Just don't advertise it or expect special "rights" in our state!
    Why not take the easier route? Have all the bigots, religious zealots, ignorants and other control freaks go somewhere else where freedom is not the founding principle and establish their own theocracy?

    A small correction -- All the bigots in Indiana are saying is, go ahead and . . .

    Does anyone else think it is just a bit strange when a person asks to be treated as the majority are treated and SOME people think that means the person is demanding "special rights"?

    What is it about people like you who don't understand that someone investing their own money into a business that isn't a requirement for the general public have the right to make dumbass policies all the time and if those policies are indeed failures they will go out of business. If you people would only be able to legislate against stupidity we wouldn't have any liberals.

    I agree it is the right of a business owner to make dumbass policies but why fight against a law that has the potential to increase one's customer base?

    Why do you care if some business owners choose not to cater to another group that affects their income? It is the owners decision what affects their base as it should be. People make stupid decisions all the time and that is what causes business failures. Let them fail. Unless a gay couple displays open affection in public how would anyone know they were gay and why would they support a business owner they know is biased against gays.

    Re: Indiana's Pence to sign bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers

    My point on this thread has always been

    As a business owner I should have the right to discriminate who I do business with. No shirt, No shoes, no service.

    What if a customer, Gay or not, wants me to put "F888 YOU A**HOLE B**CH" on a cake. Do I have a right to refuse as I would find that offensive? Perhaps two grooms on a cake is as offensive to the baker as the words above.

    It has become that every group, regardless of whether it be race, color, creed, sexuality, age, etc. has become a protected class. The ONLY class that is not protected are White Christians.

    Where were they fightin against anything? They were asked a dumb question designed to do exactly what it did. Spark outrage, and demonize a group of people in the process.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Plenty of straight people have sexually assaulted members of the same sex. The vast majority of gay men and women would not sexually assault anyone, ever. Just like the vast majority of straight men and women. Even if you looked at percentages, rather than numbers, this is true.
    No, you are projecting. You can "suspect" someone is gay, that does NOT mean you suspect they are going to sexually assault anyone. Dont confuse the two concepts. And dont forget the fact that this guy DID sexually assault his fellow Marine in combat.

    If you can't see how destructive that was to morale you are denying the plain truth.

    So... Where's the out cry when Muslim businesses refuse to serve gays?

    Here's an example:
