    eh....at least they changed the law so that they can't discriminate. Small price to pay. America by and large stood up and said no to bigotry, forcing Indiana to comply. A win for freedom and justice.

    Here's a link to a resource on California regulations in doing business. Find the correlating site that is relevant to the state you live in and go through the regulations carefully. We wouldn't want any of them to supercede your religious freedoms now, would we?

    The words 'pizza' and 'catering' are mutually exclusive.

    It was a pathetic attempt by moronic pizza shop owners to pander to Christians to increase their business, which blew up in their face.

    I'll bet that they even set up their own GoFundMe page, or had a friend do it.

    Lying, hypocritical morons.

    I'm sure you'd keep going to a pizza place that had "no blacks" sign on the front window, i mean get real
    didn't you know? Religious are on the same "protected class" list as other minorities...

    Yes. That means that Christians (Muslims, Jews, etc.) can't be turned away on the basis of their being Christian.

    I have traveled extensively in my career. I've been to 48 states. Most numerous times including Indiana. I have never personally seen more overt racism than in Indiana. This situation surprises me none.

    To your question, yes it's possible. But I do not think for a minute that's what this is.

    That means that the religious are free to practice their religion without expecting government institutions to compel others join in. Gays are free to practice their lifestyle choices and should have no expectation that governmental institutions would compel others to join in. The "protected" status cuts both ways.

    A small price to pay? A remarkable conclusion.

    America stood up, I agree. As to Freedom and Justice, I guess that depends on whether Freedom and Justice in this specific matter can be found inside fear and threats of violence.

    That is true. Nobody is forcing me to be a Christian.
    Gays are free to practice their lifestyle choices and should have no expectation that governmental institutions would compel others to join in.
    Also true. Nobody can force a straight Christian to be, oh, a gay atheist.

    The "protected" status cuts both ways.
    Again true. Your interpretation of what this means, however, is inaccurate.

    1 is people, 1 is an event.
    Can you define "participation" and to what degree of separation can a line be reasonably drawn?
