    It needs to be fair.

    If a business can do this with the Spanish language, then a business can do the same with the English language.

    Unbelievable how some people will find the stupidest **** to bitch about.
    Is fairness important?

    If we are equal, the we are equal.

    Having to order your food in English is already expected in 99% of the businesses around here......so why shouldn't a business expect their patron's to use Spanish if they want?...in fact this business didn't say your couldn't order in English....in all honesty the only reason this became an issue is because it was asking people to speak three spanish words for a "free" pizza....freedom of speech....if you prefer to pay then order in English!

    This is about the "special."

    Would you be alright with the concept of a business using a special that required the use of the English language? Or, to add to it, such a business within a sub-culture like the Mexican/American border?

    Both are either wrong, or right.

    EDIT:

    On further inspection, that case is different. That store was "English-Speaking Customers Only." That is a bit different from what I mentioned earlier.
    I don't see it as being wrong in any way. Any business should have the right to refuse service to anyone they want, for any reason.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Yeah, I know, which is why my native state (NH) has many road signs posted in two languages (English and French) and many documents from when I was a kid were presented in French upon request...

    That being the key phrase there. What is the default?

    Considering that Patrón is the Spanish word for Boss, I'd say that they probably already serve many a pie to the Latino crowd.

    If it required it for the "special" item yes, I would be ok with that. Hell, there are specials like this all the time whether it be language, dress, or what not.

    Why are you in a bunch over this?

    So you'd be alright with this special if any language from English to Spanish had to be used?
