    False again. That is not the government discriminating, that is the business owner discriminating - the government basically says treat all customers equally - whatever you offer for sale to one customer, you must offer for sale to another customer.
    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.

    I don't care if you're gay, Eskimo, left-handed and work as a prosthodontist. If you're in the minority and the majority has taken it upon themselves to discriminate against you you'll be marginalized.

    Quit trying to pretend that these business owners are poor defenseless victims. They could simply become a private club and they could discriminate 'til the Klansmen come home.
    Better yet, let's quit trying to pretend that the anti-discrimination laws are anything but intolerant bigotry

    How much therapy will a same sex couple require if they have to interview an alternate photographer?

    What an utter waste of time and cash. There is no way this wont be challenged and no will it will be allowed to stand by the courts. Basically this yokel is wasting taxpayers cash to try and ginny up some political support. Shame the taxpayers will suffer due to this BS.

    How do the businesses find out they are gay?

    "A homosexual, an atheist, a vegan, and a crossfitter walk into a bar...I only know because they told everyone within two minutes."

    If a business owner is punished for running his business according to his personal beliefs, yes, it's discrimination, bigotry at its worst
