    In almost all case I think you are right. But not in absolutely all.

    Well, some of us might expect more from people these days than we could have expected in 1865. Then again, if you're looking for excuses for bigotry, I suppose that one works as well as any other.

    As for the rest, one shouldn't have to pass a religious test in order to do business.

    The bigotry is on both sides of this question. Tolerance means everyone has to be a little bit disappointed.

    LGBT customers will be disappointed while the "Christian" business owners will be anything but.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    The business owners will lose business and risk losing more.
