    You're now the spokesman for the loony liberals? This may be one of their better decisions.

    You can change the menu. But you can't simply change the menu as an excuse to discriminate.

    I assume these are rhetorical questions. I'm not a jurist and had no hand in deciding who needed government protection.

    So if a baker who does not want to make a gay cake, can refuse to put "steve love bob", since he's never done one before?

Look at this pizza shop. social media lit em up way faster than the government ever could.


    Segregation would imply much more than anything I said. Please just stop already.
    I'm not saying that you are racist in any way shape or form.

    However, you have repeatedly supported an individuals right to not only be racist, but to act on that racism in a way that substantially harms other people. I understand that this is a form of libertarianism that at least claims to operate under the idea that the free market will punish racists and make racism go away.

    It may not be your understanding of the word, but businesses serving whites only IS segregation.

    I've been asking questions like this for days, but none of you seem to want to answer.
    According to liberal logic (yes, I know!) the holocaust denier and the the KKK could, under their proposed legislation, harass and force them out of business.

    Well then in that case you shouldn’t have any problem with sexuality being declared a protected class.

    There is no harm caused by being refused service. I understand liberals believe there is, but factually not acting to change someones condition is an act that causes no harm. In order for someone to argue an act causes a harm they have to show that action changes some sort of condition, but not selling someone a cake, a house or anything else for that matter does nothing but leave things as they were.
