    Then two men holding hands aren't necessarily gay, right? Again, now is the shop owner to know?

    I suspect the people who fret about these sort of things imagine that gays frequently drop their pants and sodomise in public at random.

    It happened to me!!!!
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Hmmm... could be. I'd wonder about someone who had that sort of sexual fantasies, wouldn't you?

    How many grown men do you know that go shopping together holding hands?

    I understand why the campaign was started in the first place. I haven't suggested a push back isn't warranted. What you fail to understand is what such a concept means in the long run.

    You need to widen your perspective, or you may unknowingly, (or perhaps knowingly) end up being a supporter of concepts that represent some of the darkest periods of human history.

    It's obvious the broader picture will likely never come into focus for some.

    I guess to be safe, all businesses should put this declaration up, lest someone mistake it's absence as a sign they do discriminate, and should be avoided.

    By shops saying that they don't discriminate? Seriously?

    It does make it easier for us. We don;t have to guess which shops will turn us away. How would you like to walk into a store, order something, and be told we don't serve your kind here? These little stickers keep us from taking up the shop owners valuable time by asking to buy items they are selling.

    Just can't seem to grasp it can you?

    Next thing you know, supporters will be looking for businesses that don't appear to fit the proper profile, and they will start painting identifying marks on the doors to warn potential customers....

    Can't we just let customers decide if a store is worth supporting, or do we really need a banner, or a sticker, to act as qualifier to what should already be assumed?

    I don't care if AFA thinks they are being bullied. Too bad for them. My point is far broader than that.
