    Why would you connect the two?

    I see no connection at all.

    On the other hand, demanding allegiance, or else, regardless of the issue, is most certainly fascist.

    I see a connection between right wing religious nutbags who whine about fascism and homosexuality.

    Well, perhaps getting better acquainted with the issue would help expand the view.

    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
    If I REQUIRED a sticker in the window of all stores I shopped at there would only be 2 stores in my town I could patronize, a florist and a boutique.

    And as most people view it, it is the free market system. You cater to your client base, or your business may suffer.

    Ok.

    How does that relate to stickers and threats to livelihoods?

Not many things left to discriminate against because of "religious belief" except them evil gays.
    show me where the law mentions gays? it doesn't it says you cannot be sued while expressing a religious belief.
    trying to re-write a law to say something it doesn't is dishonest.

    My guess is, that's two more stickers than you were looking for in the past. Did you doubt the views of the owners of those two stores before they posted their stickers?

    It doesn't, but that doesn't mean that "religious beliefs" will trump FEDERAL anti-discrimination laws. The only one of those NOT covered under FEDERAL laws is sexual orientation. So, go on a refuse service based on "religious beliefs" to blacks or Chinese, or Native Americans, or women, or men, or whites, or christians, or muslims, and you will get smacked down by the Feds because state laws do not trump federal laws. Now, since ALL of those are covered under federal laws, what is left for people to discriminate against in businesses?

    I don't shop at either store, because I don't like to over pay for clothing, and I can grow my own flowers. So the views of those owners didn't matter to me anyways. Them putting up a sticker didn't make me suddenly want an overpriced dress, or a bunch of roses that I could cut from my own garden.

    A sticker on the door of a store saying 'we don't discriminate' is fascism? Only on parallel earth.
