    And like I said, the next time you're down and out try finding a BITTER ATHEIST'S HOMELESS SHELTER.

    There are lots of secular homeless shelters.

    Secular doesn't mean atheist nor does it mean bitter.

    There have been several of these cases (at least the ones made public) around the country. This addresses a couple to which I was referring.

    That's not even an issue of Public Accommodation laws. It was market forces at work and not government shutting down a business.

    In the Sweetcakes by Mellisa instance they closed their storefront (they still operate a home based service last I read) because the community didn't want to buy their product after the issue hit the media. The community stopped buying product there and they told wedding planners and other vendors that they would not use their services if they did business with the bakery.

    Sweetcakes is actually an example of not needing government intervention, it's an example of the market making it's voice heard.

    If you believe you'll be judged on what others do then you're even a bigger fool than I thought.

    Mind your own business. Live your own life. Let others do the same.
    What happens after we all die is not your responsibility or concern.

    Stop trying to force others to live by your beliefs and rules.

    Feeling run down...lethargic? Could be that stick in your butt.

    Seriously why so hostile?

    I'm not gay, but do I worry about the eternal soul of others who may be gay, No.

    Maybe just live as good a life as you can yourself, and leave the afterlife to whatever deity who believe in
    No you don't have to believe but, if you did to would help the cause.

    Wrong. I am living in reality instead of trying to force my beliefs on others. You cannot prove that God is responsible for any natural disasters or any disasters at all, so the only "increased risk" is in your own mind.

    The question was about discrimination against religious belief.
