    Actually they do not and you should know better. Even by your own admission, "Where the public accommodation is mainly commercial, a duty to serve is most likely to exist" and last I looked a pizza shop does fit that description.
    Neither Hurley or Roberts were about commercial enterprises open to public.

    That was just a little intellectually dishonest propaganda he was using since he couldn't formulate better arguments against my points. This topic is fundamentally imbedded in labor and property rights. I understand why people want to make this "fair", but to use the guns of government to force labor I think is perhaps too much. The proper way to regulate this system is through intelligent and informed consumerism.

    denying service based on sexuality might indeed be bigotry ( not inherently, but it probably is, nonetheless)... throwing the word "bigot" around.

    unfortunately, bigots calling bigots bigots doesn't leave a lot of room for much moral or ethical high ground. <shrug>
    tly
    These bigots you speak of - the ones who are calling other bigots "bigots" - exactly what is their bigotry. What are they bigoted about?

    I, for example, am extremely bigoted towards pedophiles. I hate them.

    So exactly how are these bigots being bigots and how does their bigotry rate in relation to the bigotry that motivates the bigots who won't provide (some/any) goods and services to gay people?

    Ahh, now we're getting somewhere! Exactly how is Dovkan bigotednd how does his bigotry rate in relation to the bigotry that motivates the bigots who won't provide (some/any) goods and services to gay people?

    Pizza pop and kid hit the RW cult lottery and won buckos, but their cause is lost.

    Indiana gay and lesbian citizens won by a far wider margin and are the happy recipients of a much richer moral battle.
    Bingo!!!

    The wingnuts think *they* won something because some store owner raised a lot of money for their own use, but the important point is that the people of Indiana are now protected against the discriination of LGBT's as result of this idiots statements.

    Yes and no. Depends on the circumstances.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    For all your blather about how the public supports the bigoted pizza owners, the people who represent the citizens of Indiana just passed a law making it illegal for business owners to refuse service based on sexual orientation.

    Even the Indiana GOP recogizes that the people of Indiana do not support the sort of discrimination you call "freedom" and have made it illegal.

    The Indiana legislature spoke even more loudly and clearer and passed a revision making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual identity
