    Nonsense. The laws in other states are the business of people in other places.

    No, all are not taken with the same seriousness as others. There are a lot of things taken into account when it comes to death threats, including actual intent, ability, state of mind, etc.

Not because he was a veteran, but because he wanted me to diagnose his car for free and then await payment on the work until weeks later. Doesn't work that way. This is a business, not a charity. On the other hand, we just delivered a large job for a lesbian girl yesterday. It went very well and I think she will be very happy with it. She is out of work, and honestly with the multicolored hair, facial piercings and tattoos I can see why, but her parents paid us $2700 to put an engine in her car after she ran it out of oil.
    Are you comparing discriminating against somebody who isn't able to pay.... to... discriminating to somebody based on a difference of sexual orientation? If this is your defence of outright homophobia, it's a pretty terrible defence.

    Make sure to check marriage licenses too. Wouldn't want to serve those immoral divorcers.

    Oh boy, more contraversy. I think there are lots of guns in Michigan, so business will likely boom. No pun intended.
    I think he just wants in on that $600,000 donation action so he can retire.

    This thread isn't about guns or race but I have zero reservations following down the rabbit hole.
    Do you have the choice to leave your skin color at home? Then no Jerry, it's not the same.

    Being in a relationship is a choice. Getting married is a choice. Bringing your car to that shop is a choice. Even this guy's being a christian is a choice. Rather or not it's a choice is totally irrelevant. You should maybe learn something about the topic before posting again.

    Either let businesses discriminate as they please and stfu about it, or, don't let businesses discriminate against anyone. There should be one standard that everyone has to play by.
