    Yes, there is no reason to respond to that nonsense. If the other party is not willing to engage in the commerce it doesn't matter how much you want to engage in it yourself. If the other party says no then you're **** out of luck.

    People deciding on their own free will to not trade with others is hardly artificial.

    Btw, you want to look up the term free market.

    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.
    And this happened when?

    That's only true if you ignore that religion is a protected class. So no. They REALLY wouldn't get off Scott free.

    Really. So in your mind, you can go to a Muslim deli and demand a ham sandwich even though he doesn't carry ham. Is that right?

    That's poor logic, aka a a straw man. One some merchants choose to do is not the same as what the free market signals. And when a merchant chooses not to provide a service or product for a same sex wedding, that does not indicate the free market saying, "We don't like your kind 'round here."

    Although you're absolutely right, if every other thread on this topic anything is go by, he's probably citing a case that isn't actually discrimination.
