    The CC authorizes the regulation of interstate commerce. Banning discrimination in public accommodations falls withiin that power.

    So sayeth SCOTUS

    That's nothing more than a power grab by the government which any common reading of the Constitution prohibits

    I was thinking of direct aplication of the second amendment: state constitutionS and law must comply with the Federal constitution, and so when the state issues a business license to an entity imposing a gun ban, the state is violating the second amendment.

    If you want a business which can discriminate against gays then you have to go out of your way and organize as a religious non-profit. Likewise if you want to ban blacks or jews or armed citizens or women or whatever then you likewise need to go out of your way to organize as some kind of nonprofit.

    Your non sequitur allowed you to avoid the reality of what I said. That's kind of the purpose of posting a non sequitur.

    Because you are the final authority on all things religious: Why do the islamo dogs kill innocent people and rape 9 year old girls? About a billion men believe that if they get killed, killing you in the name of Allah they will ascend to paradise and get 72 virgins to abuse as they wish; why is that??
