    Actually, if your patronage is turned down, that is indeed the free market

    Again, a civilized society does not force people to act against their consciences. And yes, people are forced to engage in commerce to which they object or be forced out of the marketplace. Frankly, that's bigotry sanctioned by the government, no different than the Jim Crow Laws

    Bull ****, I have to deal with people of extreme faith all the time. Ayn Radian libertarians are the worst with the Jesus freaks coming in as a close second.

    Interesting. Taking the intent of that particular message to its logical conclusion, what the free market is signaling to lgbt's is "We don't like your kind 'round here."

    Sometimes, a person's conscience is no better than dog****, as in the case of people who so terribly want to discriminate against the demographic of their ire.

    If you feel insulted because your posts are long and boring, may I suggest you learn how to write posts that aren't long and boring?

    The "screaming" began when the left completely mis-interpreted an already stupid law, and incited an internet frenzy. For once accept responsibility for the bigoted and hateful response against these innocent people.
    And yet, the law was changed and doesn't discriminate against sexual orientation.

    Condoning with silence the death threats received only reveals the innate dishonesty that created the concept of "tortured language" to fool the nation. This shows no signs of that abject dishonesty fading any time soon
    Condoning? Who condoned anything? Lol.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    How true. How true.

    A gay patron can sue a Christian store owner for refusing specialized services and win while a gay store owner can refuse the same services to a Christian patron and get off scott free.

    So what if it is? That doesn't mean their dog **** view is not their right to hold and act on.
