    Thank you. I am aware of this. Perhaps you should have directed this to the other poster who claimed the stickers had "We do serve gays" on them.

    I recognize you can't see that connection.

    Please cite for us any "requirement" that a business must display such a sticker "to be allowed to do business".

    No one is REQUIRED to do anything. Businesses can CHOOSE to put up a sticker. Businesses are still up and running without a sticker. No business has been denied a business license for not having a sticker. The vast majority of MS businesses do not have a sticker. How is that a REQUIREMENT?

    The sticker campaign is about the "turn away the gays" law that was just passed. Of course it has absolutely nothing to do with gays.

    I'm not concerned with protests. I'm concerned with judgments based on whether one displays the proper affiliation. There is a lot of history related to such things that people seem to ignore.

    Do I think 500 sticker from an LGBT group is a hill to die on? No, I don't.

    But my comments have been only to focus on the idea that one must display a badge in order to be judged.

    Again, people, and businesses are judged on numerous things. This is just one more.
    And no one is saying that anyone MUST do anything.

    I LIVE in MS, and have been involved in the "religious freedom" law since it first was proposed. I am also a member of Equality MS, and have been involved in the sticker campaign. So I do believe that I know why the campaign was started, and about the law as passed. While you are going on and on about "requirements" and "membership". I am explaining why the campaign was started in the first place.

    Here's one from the other side; a shop in Kentucky put up a row of stickers on their window, one of them is the negative sign over a rainbow flag

    So the New testament, or one verse anyway, guns and beards are OK but cursing and gays aren't welcome

    How are store managers to know whether their customers are gay or not?
