    Good point.

    The answer to his question is "No, they shouldn't."

    But that doesn't mean I want to force compulsion with my values by law. You shouldn't smoke either, but hey, your lungs, your business.

    Well, I'm afraid you're going to be sadly disappointed - that ship has sailed.

    As for the municipality discriminating, my point was not basic regulatory conditions to open and run a business but the municipality being able to say "you're a Christian, no store license for you" or "you're gay, no store license for you". Or simply having a city clerk say, "gee, there's something about you I don't like so no store license for you".
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    There are public hospitals.
    This is where your ideology is so out of touch with reality.

    That is exactly what is happening in America. If you want to run your business according to your Christian beliefs, you can literally be forced out of business. That form of discrimination is celebrated by liberals all across America

    In a civilized society, they should not be allowed to do it. This is what prevents systemic oppression of people by people hijacking a religion for their own personal bigoted agendas.

    Jesus wouldn't refuse service to sinners.

    Jesus wouldn't facilitate their sin though

    B.S.

    Those aren't Christian beliefs. Jesus didn't turn sinners away.
