    I've never suggested anyone should be kept from protesting.

    Thanks for you opinion.

    I would 100% support the right of Free Speech. How about you do you support Free Speech?


    What if a bunch of activists decide to go around and protest a bridle gown shop for selling dresses to a couple of lesbians getting married. You ok with that?

    The bitch is when membership requires a talisman be displayed, or else harm could come their way.
    Yeah, I now what you mean

    We had a tattoo parlor run by a guy who wore sweater vests and bow ties close down last year.

    Hey, as so many on this thread have indicated, it is their right to protest. I agree. Let them demonstrate all they want, and they can be judged accordingly.

    From what I've seen, the stickers don't have "We do serve gays" printed on them.
    No the stickers say "We don't discriminate. If you're buying we're selling." Along with the LGBT rainbow. They are being distributed by a local LGBT group Equality Mississippi, in response to the new law that allows businesses to discriminate based on their "religious beliefs".

    Why wouldn't I?

    I just have a problem with the requirement one has to join a club to be allowed to do business.

    I recognize you can't see that connection.

    I don't know what you picture the real world to be, but in the real world that got us to this point in time, it wasn't a requirement to post a sign to prove you don't discriminate against other people.

    What if a bunch of activists decide to go around and protest any business not displaying the appropriate "support" labels. You ok with that?

    Seems to me that you are the one who is concerned with boycotts, and protests. If customers want to boycott, they will boycott. Several different groups do this already for many reasons.
