    It gets cast into the relationship bin, rather than the legality bin. When I have an intimate relationship with someone, the questions of law don't even occur to me.
    but doesnt them wanting to forcible deny others make it a legal issue f for them?

    see what im getting at

    I agree with your opinion by the way, i dont think about law when i have a girlfriend either but they obviously must, dont you think?

    or atleast they think about law if YOU have a girlfriend lol

    they want the law to force thier morality on you

    just seems so silly and irrational to me

    Although I agree with what you're saying, relationships aren't typically built around rationality.

    4.)Employers do not owe people jobs.
    5.)If the employees don't like working for some jerk that discriminates against them...then quit.
    6.)Thanks to the extensive welfare available in America, it's not like anyone needs to work to survive any more.
    1.) business in general
    2.) you are confused thats not what those laws do
    3.) they can do this as long as they dont break the law and infringe on rights
    4.) correct and nothing in the OP suggest that
    5.) yes they can do that and if the law is broken there are penalties life and reality arent always this easy
    6.) meaningless opinion that reality proves false

    Except you have no such right to be free of discrimination or to be treated fairly. The state must do both of those, but your fellow citizens are under no such obligation. It is a tough concept for many to swallow, but I have the right to discriminate. You do not have the right to be free from discrimination.

    Anyone who is opposed to equal rights for all will be disappointed, because the majority of Americans are opposed to hate-based ideas.
    If our rights are equal, then you don't get to impose your standard of 'fairness' or tolerance upon anyone else. Unless you believe your 'goodness' trumps their 'badness.' The trouble is, if that is your standard then you don't believe in equal rights for all.

    Did I say one word about taking your rights away from you?

    No, I did not.

    If you can't deal with equal rights for every human being, maybe you're living in the wrong country.

    The government should not be allowed to discriminate but IMO it is my right to discriminate. If I don't want a person working for me for whatever reason that should be my right, my freedom of choice.

    1.) you can discriminante all you want until it violates the rights of others. He never said he has the right to be free of discrimination, so that strawman fails
    2.) another failed strawman his standards arent bein imposed on you lol

    you are free to think, feel, teach, preach just about anything you want you just dont get to infringe on anybodys rights and vice versa
