    It's hard to argue in favor of forcing store owners to violate their conscience when you can't prove actual need to do so. Retreat to the race card requires some hoop-jumping, but is instinctive in this scenario.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    That's definitionally segregation. You can't say that you support the right of a business to cater to whites only and then also say that you're against segregation.

    They can "believe" what ever they wish. What we are talking about is codifying in law, and under the force of the State someone to render a service they may not wish to participate in...

    No it's not. /facepalm


    I am not for segragated schools, I am not for segragation by law towns, cities. saying an individual should have the right to sell to whom he wishes no matter how abhorent I personally find it, should not be illegal.

    I'd rather know who was the racist business so I don't have to buy from them.


    How in that world is that supporting institutionalized segregation? FTLOG.

    Didn't liberals like yourself argue that the marketplace rejected discrimination in Indiana?

    I think that says it all.
    What is says is that the manufacturers of those signs are making a mint. However, in reality that is all the good they are doing anyone.

    You can now drop that to any other "thought crime" which is what we must be cautious of.
    Perhaps, but this discussion has followed the formula that all these anti-gay threads tend to end up in: opening up the radius of the discussion to the most wretched, abhorred groups in the universe. If I say, "Yeah, you're going to have to do business with the NAMBLA dude," you're just going to keep raising the ante until finally you ask, "What if Satan,the Prince of Darkness and Lord of Flies wants to buy a cake, do you have to sell it to him then???" They always have to get as silly as humanly possible. But we're not talking about NAMBLA, KKK, Neo nazis, cannibals or Satan, the Fallen One. We're talking about gays, and whether or not you can discriminate against them.

    Those tend to confuse the topic. Those signs are only good to the people making a profit off of selling them to what seems to be every business in the U.S.
    Oh, I certainly get that they're intended to confuse the topic.

    Yes, because mutual consent must not be tolerated.

    .


    I wasn't trying to equate gay with anything abhorrent, in fact I left out, "what about a gay bakery having to make a "god hates fags" cake for some westboro types?


    That's about as relevant as one could get. My bad for committing the one that is most relevant.



    And leave lord satan out of this. Hail satan.
