    Well, there goes the marketing plan.

    Have a good weekend.

Now, since ALL of those are covered under federal laws, what is left for people to discriminate against in businesses?
    again please show me in the law where it mentions gays. if you can't then you are arguing a strawman.

    It doesn't, but all of the other examples presented are covered under FEDERAL laws, therefore even WITH the state law saying that you can discriminate based on religious beliefs, you could not ban women, Jews, blacks, native Americans, etc because FEDERAL law trumps STATE law. The only other group is gays. So by process of eliminating those groups covered in federal law(race, gender, religion, national origin, disability) what is left that this law can possibly refer to?

    I don't know, but the sign doesn't say that they discriminate against Christians so why take it that way....

    No I think you need to find a new term to use. If you're angry with the way things are going, that's one thing. But labeling it as fascist is just plain incorrect. Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco were fascist, you know, silencing their opponents with bullets, nooses, and gas chambers? If you really want to equate that with "putting up a sticker" you are realllly weakening the word fascist till it basically covers anything you don't like. Maybe its just because I graduated with a BA in History, but it makes me want to bang my head against a wall when I see people throw around terms willynilly.
