    If that's not the case, why would a Christian symbol create fear and loathing in anyone? If owners are jerks, let their business fail, as it should.

    On the other hand, wouldn't it be possible to conclude the absence of this "qualifying sticker" among other business who display it, means the business plans to discriminate? What if that weren't true?
    I don't give a crap who puts up what symbols on their private property. And NEITHER DO YOU as long as it is Christian symbols.

    Hypocrisy, served hot and fresh.

    We've entered a period in society where fascism needs to be pushed back against. In fact, I think we've gone quite a bit past the "entered a period" stage.

    I personally can't imagine not accepting anyone's business, but I don't think I should have to prove it with a sign.

    To me, it seems the concept of slippery slope has never been taught. History has provided overwhelming evidence that the concept is real, and destructive.
    The sticker campaign has been all over the local (Mississippi) news stations, in the local newspapers, and has been in national media. For a local business owner to not know about it, they would have to be living under a rock.

    You are not required to put up the sticker if you don't want to. So you're in the clear there.

    This whole sticker campaign was started in response to the new law passed in MS that allows businesses to discriminate based on their "religious beliefs". Why shouldn't businesses be allowed to put up a sign that says "if you're buying we're selling"?

    Exactly. I agree.

    My point in this matter relates to this "I don't discriminate" sticker because of what it represents.

    That's not what this is, but please have fun making yourself look foolish with each post. It's humorous to say the least.

    Only a fool would believe that "we don't discriminate" translates to fascism.

    Sounds like you're just upset your discrimination has consequences.

    Despite the brain aneurisms from the chosen ones on this thread, I really don't care much about this sticker thing, except for what it represents. And this "fall in line with what we tell you" requirement or else is a dangerous thing. Again, I think if someone discriminates, they should be treated in the manner in which they deserve, good or bad.

    Again, the only point I raise is this "not required" issue. If the majority of the businesses feel pressured to put these stickers up, what of those who don't know, or just frankly don't want to put stickers up? How will they be perceived?

    We never want to go back to this sort of thing, whether it's Japanese, blacks, gays, Jews, or whatever, never ever:
