    Right, and this thread is about company policies against gays, not the inner workings of a gay person's life.

This is a political move by him to kiss up to the religious right.
    The POTUS declared that marriage was between a man and a woman. Of course, he "evolved". Was that a political move by him to kiss up to the left?

    Maybe Mike Pence signed this into law because he actually thinks business owners should get to serve who they want. Sometimes politicians believe in what they do. The Republican mayor of Indianapolis is a politician. Maybe he hates Mike Pence. Maybe he's kissing up to the independents. Maybe he's secretly gay and doesn't want to lose his barber. Who really knows?

    Jan Brewer signed that controversial immigration law in 2012. Everyone predicted gloom and doom for Arizona. No more tourism, no more conventions, everyone was leaving! Tourism in Arizona is up.

    Report me. Then report yourself for talking about concealed carry and guns in a thread about businesses serving gay people. Then go away.

    Almost every employer in the US bans weapons, and some prohibit the public from having weapons; the enforcability of such policies against the public can very greatly depending on where you are.

    ...and

    there is no rational argument presented to support any of the above.

    So was the company right, legally that is, in asking you to leave the premises?

    I see you're ready to discuss discrimination policies. That's great. What do you have to say about Public Accommodation?

    Very few "parade around" now. I can go months without seeing a single gay person parading around. What they do is live life openly, same as you do. Hold hands with their loved one, take them to dinner, to work functions, etc.

    And why shouldn't they demand at least tolerance? They're human beings who deserve the benefit of the doubt same as you and me.
