Too bad, business owners can deny service to gun owners as there is no right to open carry, and guns can in fact be left at home.No.
Nope, you can leave it at home. Nothing is forcing you to carry it with you into the store.Really just leave the gun sitting outside the shop on the sidewalk for 5 minutes, huh?
It's entirely relevant as that is one of the reasons why some forms of discrimination are acceptable/legal/justified and others are not.Irrelevant.
Jerry, you've called homosexuality a birth defect, you've defended state bans on gay marriage, you've compared homosexuals wanting to get married - to incest. Pretending that you don't hold homophobic positions at this point is a bit late in the race isn't it?That's why I fully support gays serving openly in the military, gays adopting, gays getting married, because I'm so inhospitable towards gays. rrriiiiggghhhT.
Jerry, continuing to compare gays to people you bring along for the ride, won't change the fact that they're not the same.Businesses are also allowed to ban gays. Shoot yourself in the foot again. You see, OP's story is about what should be the rule, not what is the rule.
The buisness or the child would suffer a harm, right, that's what I've been saying. If there's a harm then there's a valid reason. "Feelings" are not a valid reason.
Jerry, that's kind of the point. You can't leave any of those things at home just like a person can't leave their sexual orientation at home. That's why it's illegal to discriminate against them. Why are you so against extending the same benefits that religious people and races get to homosexuals? Why do you insist on comparing them to guns or children? No matter how hard you try, the comparisons simply don't match up.If that's true then I don't know why people are bringing up race. This thread is about businesses discriminating.
Being black and being muslum are not the same thing, either, but you can't discriminate against them. So once again: irrelevant.

The subject of this thread is the Michigan Car Repair Shop Owner. Interchanging objects is how we explore a subject, this is why people are bringing up the banning of various different things. Another poster in this thread also changed the verb, arguing that someone should open a repair shop and cater to gays. This thread is not about gays or gay rights, but the Michigan Car Repair Shop Owner.
