    What was the treatment for? Though a lot of my friends and family members are gay, I see no reason to force anybody to associate with them, if they do not want to. One exception is emergency help. But otherwise all the guy or girl need do is walk a block to the next MD or baker.

However, you do not get to carry that over to determining which clients you'll sell your wares to. You can determine what wares you'll sell or not sell on religious grounds, but you cannot discriminate about who shall be able to buy those wares once you decide what you will sell.
    Actually, in this country, you can decide all day long who you will sell your wares to. You can decide you don't want to sell your wares to bikers, hippies, cigarette smokers, brunettes, people with brown eyes, people who smell bad, people who love cats, and so on.

    What you can't do is decide you don't want to sell your wares to the protected classes. You can decline service to or an engagement of commerce with any gay person you want to. You just can't say you're doing it because the person is gay.

    This seemed to be a very coincidental anecdote. On the very day in Indiana that Mike Pence signs this into law in Indiana, a poster happens to have a good friend in Indiana who just at that same time was declined treatment by a doctor because he's gay.

    I mean, what are the odds?

    I have followed your input and feel it would be a waste of time to discuss it with you.

    This will get shot down in the courts, but it will be interesting to see how far this does and how much damage Pence will do to his state before it gets overturned.
    What if the person behind the counter decides he isn't going to sell you condoms because you're a scary looking biker and he doesn't want you in his store? Then you have to find your condoms somewhere else.

    Curious how a druggist would know someone is a divorcee or an atheist?

    Can everyone be a little more dramatic?

    So do I. I wouldn't go to a store whose owner hated animals. Isn't having a choice in who you engage in commerce with grand?
