    Really? So catering an event is not taking part in it? Exactly how does that makes sense?

    What does that have to do with commerce?

    I take it you don't realize the property is private property.

    People are not forced to engage in commerce. Those who do through an establishment open to the public are expected to live up to the obligation of serving the public. That is what they take on they they open a business to the public. If they want to remain ignorant bigots they can do that too by opening their business only to certain clientele. Behavior in civilized society includes living up to obligations one takes on. Why is this so very difficult for yo and many others here to grasp?
    Oh the irony. I'm not aware of any business that serves the entire public. But if government forces a business to do business with a customer he does not want to do business, it's tyranny, not liberty

    Yes, the irony of someone like you who clearly lacks the knowledge and understanding the issue so vehemently defends bigotry.

    You are not aware of many other things also. No one said the entire public, but once an establishment is open to the public that means ANY segment of it.

    But if government forces a business to do business with a customer he does not want to do business, it's tyranny, not liberty
    Seems you needle is stuck in the same ignorant groove. I assure you that by repeating ad nauseam the same ignorance it will neither become fact or relevant.

    No, it is not. If you want to operate in a town and interact with the public, you also agree to obey by the town's rules. Therefore, you cannot discriminate against people.

    We can do this all day long.
    And where did you get the idea that it was a Muslim deli? Was it all the cakes?
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Again, the property is private. You can argue it's not all day, but the fact will remain that what we are talking about is private property.
