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?
    No it represents citizens and business owners who disagree with the new laws that were just enacted. It represents businesses that are saying that they will not discriminate. That is all it represents. No one is forcing anyone to put up a sticker "or else". If a business doesn't want to put up a sticker that is up to them. If people choose not to shop in those stores that is up to them too. Considering that only about 500 of these stickers have been distributed in the ENTIRE state, there are far more stored without them than there are that have them.

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

    Sounds like you're just upset your discrimination has consequences.
    Naw, not upset at. In fact, not in the slightest.

    I can tell you it's amazing to view how wacked out you folks are though.

    Geeze. Go drown some kittens will ya, perhaps it will improve your outlook on life.

    Yeah we're whacked out alright because we call you out on your idiotic comparisons and posts.

    When you get done frothing at the mouth over your idiotic posts, maybe you should come back then.

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

    Putting a sticker in your window representing that "I don't discriminate" is really a bad thing.




    In Mississippi this sign can be used by any business that wants to...

    I don't mean to make a bigger issue of this than it is. I think this whole issue proves we've gotten way off track. We have governments passing ok to discriminate laws, and we have groups demanding business be closed if their concerns are not met, etc, etc.

    I think this type of reaction/response is dangerous. That's the bottom line to my point about the stickers, just another stop down the slippery slope we stepped on to some time ago.

    No one is demanding that businesses be closed. Customers ARE saying that if you discriminate we may not patronize your business. Consumers have the right to shop where they choose.

    I completely agree that customers have a right to shop where they choose. If some fool wants to discriminate, they should suffer the consequences. Tattooing the shop shouldn't be a necessary way to identify who those businesses are.

    I think it's unfortunate these slippery slopes aren't seen for what they are.

    Oh well, we view it differently.

    No one is tattooing any business. The businesses are CHOOSING to inform their customers that they do not discriminate.

    The AFA has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center since 2010. AFA's pronouncements should be taken accordingly.
