    It's a setup so someone can tell you their beliefs are superior to your's.

    But non-fast food restaurants with homosexual servers is acceptable? That's an oddly specific thing to focus on.

    And how on earth could you know that there are homosexual servers at a certain restaurant ?
    Do you ask ?
    Does the proprietor know ?
    Or, should he know !
    Some people are ignorant...and ignorance knows no lines....no colors...

    Some interesting info on this topic and yes I will be the first to admit my knowledge on this subject is limited. It is your main interest but at the bottom of my list.


    "The Senate passed a historic piece of gay rights legislation Thursday that would ban workplace discrimination against gay and transgender employees, another milestone victory for a gay rights movement that has been gaining favor in the courts and electoral politics.The 64 to 32 vote to approve the Employment Non-Discrimination Act marked the first time federal lawmakers had approved legislation to advance gay rights since repealing the military’s ban on gay men and lesbians in uniform in late 2010. Approval of the measure came two days after Illinois became the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage and four months after the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioned federal recognition of legally married gay couples.But ENDA faces a steep uphill climb in a GOP-controlled House still dominated by social conservatives. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and his lieutenants think the measure is too broad and is unnecessary; they think that the people ENDA is intended to protect are already covered under existing federal, state and private workplace protection laws.

    Correct.

    And the U.S. Government and the American people's right to make you pay a heavy price for that discrimination.

    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.
    This is going to take a "ton of explaining" !
    Do you feel that it is OK for some to ignore a law if they disagree with it ?
    By and large , "goodness" MUST trump "badness" .

    The premise of the thread is of course wrong. There is nothing about non-discrimination laws that protect rights.
