    Aren't you an anarchist though? Hmmm...it seems weird an anarchist would support statist policy like public accommodations.

    With the implication being he WOULD serve pizza at a non gay wedding reception.


    I got that right? Do you require a cliffs notes to keep up? No shame in that, lots of people do, you know...

    The pizza there sucked. In many years of business, they only got two, countem two Yelp reviews.

    I doubt anyone would ever buy their pizza for a wedding (who has pizza for a wedding anyhow?)

    They don't cater, and they've never served weddings.

    You seem not to understand that anarchism has a social aspect and is about abolishing all oppressive social structures such as racism, homophobia, and the like. You should do yourself a favor and read up on anarchism so you can actually know what you are talking about.

    Yes, however public accommodation is not it.

    So what? This a law that forces people to serve others. How does the underlining workings of the law appeal to anyone opposed to the state?

    You also can't abolish bigotry without coercion, so yeah.

    Changing the subject is a clear sign of a weak or failed position of argument.

    Unfortunately, to you anyone that doesnt buy into gay marriage is 'bigoted Christian'. Regardless of their love for you personally.

The length of servitude could legally be lengthened in cases of bad behavior, especially for those workers who ran away or became pregnant.

    One variant of this labor system was the use of "enforced servitude." Vagrants, war prisoners, and minor criminals were shipped to America by English authorities, then sold into bondage.

    ~~Snip~~

    The servants of this era were often uneducated and could be cheated by unscrupulous masters, who could forge new contracts with terms more favorable to themselves."

    Indentured Servitude

    There's a lot of history where indentured servants were treated less than slaves. Slaves were cash cows over the span of their lives. "SUPPOSEDLY" indentured servants were only for 5 to 7 years. Consequently, slaves were more valuable over the long haul.

    And a lot of people exploited Indentured Servants by changing their agreements and the servants could never pay off their debts - so essentially they were slaves.
    It was at least volentary with hopes of a better life elsewhere.
