    it stops people from losing and having to close their businesses for expressing their faith.

    if their business is going to fail then it should be done because they don't offer a service or product that the public wants. it shouldn't be lost in a court fight.
    Yet some religious beliefs are more important than others. A business can't discriminate based on race even if it is a "religious belief". Businesses can not discriminate based on gender, even if it is a "religious belief". Businesses can not discriminate based on religion, even if it is a "religious belief". Not many things left to discriminate against because of "religious belief" except them evil gays.

    Businesses voluntarily advertising their policy on discrimination is not fascism.

    Sorry, but Citizens demanding businesses display allegiances, or else, is.

    No one is demanding anything. If the CUSTOMER wants something, then businesses either oblige or don't, that is up to them, but everyone knows that the businesses that cater to their customer base has a higher success rate.

    If I only sell Budweiser, and my customer wants Corona, I have a choice to provide what my customers what they are asking for, or possibly lose business to a place that does sell Corona. If I run a restaurant that only sells Greek food, and not many people in the area like Greek food, I adapt or go out of business. If I only sell $150 jeans, and my customers want Wranglers I will lose business. If my customers want to know my position on discrimination, I can either let them know or not, that is my choice.

    Thank you for attempting to clarify and explain, but it's really not necessary.

    From what you've posted, you, and I would imagine other people you associate with, require a public notice displaying allegiance and sympathy to your cause. If one expands that out a bit, I would guess if enough people affiliated themselves with your cause you could eventually have the power to determine if someone could earn a living, or not. I suppose in that case, it would be best to display those membership tags if one wants to eat.

    As most people view it, that is textbook fascism

    There are names for that.
    Yes, there is

    It's called "freedom"

    Nope, that's not it, but thanks for playing. Forcing one to comply in this way might be called freedom in some societies, but not in the United States.

    You just love throwing the word fascism around, especially when it comes to homosexuals

    These are your words posted above.

    Just because you got bitch slapped for posting this fascist nonsense and have since tried to hide this fact behind juvenile name calling and other typical ProgLib BS doesn't change the facts. Is there something else you want to deny? Something else you want to lie about?

    Maybe you could be rational and civil in your posts rather than proving your age.

    Deal with it.

    If you want to reconfirm your fascist creds, go right ahead. Running a means test before one can vote is bound to be popular to the masses. If you'd like, I'll even re-paste you implied demand for you, since your memory seems to be failing you.

    Frankly, I'd suggest trying to build up your self esteem by calling an anonymous poster a liar is pretty pathetic, especially when you put the truth in writing.

    But who am I to judge? Some people have to get validation any way they can, so I guess you must do what you must.

    I think it's fascist when you and the rest of those who believe like you want a means test before someone votes, to insure they vote as you demand.

    Pretty simple, and accurate, since you admitted that is how you want things.

    Case closed.

    As to your projection, it's always good to see someone so desperate, they think they can tell the future. That bit of hallucination is for you to deal with, and others to point and laugh at.

    By the way, fascist is an appropriate description of your agenda.

    The only fascism I see is coming from the right wing religious christian nutbags who think fascism means "I can't tell other people what they can and can't do"
