    Actually, that is a right. Should I go over it again?

    It not a human right to play in the NFL either. Not even a human right to have "the opportunity to play in the NFL". We're not talking human rights here. Quite simply it's one dude's fixation at play here and thus far no one that makes a difference in any party has taken on the legislation.

    That right is overshadowed by the right to equal opportunity.

    You do realize it is an absurdity to argue that one right voids another, right?

The product did not match their intent, and they were wise enough to recognise this, and so they stepped up and admitted their error. Couldn't ask for better.
    They could repeal their law, they voted for this discriminatory law and now the "you know what" hits the fan they are trying to back peddle and appeal to the judge to veto the law they voted for. That is just stupid. They should have realized that before they voted in favor for that law.

    There is no right to not being offended, not being rejected, not being liked. There is a right to freedom of association. It is immoral to force associations onto people. Try to make a moral case for the morality of forcing associations onto unwilling people.

    All law is a balancing of rights against each other. What's absurd is for someone to not understand that.

    Denial of human rights by unjustly, immorally and illegally (IMHO) is not a right that is guaranteed by any law or treaty.
