    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.

    Look, I know this is a libertarian thing.. where one concentrates on the "principle" of a law and ignore its effects. But there are parts of this country that are VERY racist. And if businesses in these places were allowed to choose to serve whites only, then virtually all of the businesses would serve whites only. So if you support the right of businesses to serve whites only, then you must accept that this would be the result in places. There would be portions of the country denied to blacks. Now that might be an acceptable tradeoff for you, but you can't ignore it.
    Are you claiming blacks are not capable of opening bars that cater to blacks? They have been doing just that for a very long time now. Here in L.A., the district along Central Avenue was full of black bars well before and after WWII.

    Here.. maybe this is easier. Instead of all of these hypothetical situations involving gays, imagine that they involved fat or ugly people. Could a baker refuse to make a wedding cake because the bride was too fat or ugly?
    So if he later changes his mind about making penis cakes it really doesn't matter. He'll be stuck to making them forever. Does it matter about the color or size of these penis cakes? What about other body parts? Comply there as well?

    This definitely calls for another level of bureaucracy.

    And if you went in they'd serve you a drink.

    Of course it is. The relevant question is whether any law could require black frat members to include whites without violating the black members' First Amendment freedom of association. Considering what the Supreme Court said in Roberts v. Jaycees, especially, I strongly doubt it could.

    Imagine you were driving across the country. You look and see that your fuel light is on. You know that you have roughly 40 miles left in the tank before you get worried. There's an exit with fuel ahead, and a sign that says next gas 30 miles. But you're feeling good, and making good time. So you decide to press on.

    Thirty minutes later you take the exit into a small town. You pull up to the pump, put in your credit card... and wait.. .. Nothing. After a few tries you get frustrated. This is clearly the only gas station in town, and you don't have enough fuel to make it anywhere else. So you walk in to see the attendant, asking why the pump doesn’t' work.. "Oh, we don't serve your kind around here". What do you do? Can you honestly say that you haven't been harmed.

    Those exact bars no. Others yes. Why don't you walk in and buy a drink. If they don't serve you then you can file a lawsuit against them. They are legally required to serve you unless you're causing a disturbance or a visibly intoxicated person.
