    They have the right to choose who they will sell property to. It doesn't matter at all that it is their home, a cake, medical treatment, or anything else you can imagine. It just doesn't. You have all the right in the world to protect yourself from the law, but that doesn't make the law right.

    Just in case anyone is not paying attention Maggie just admitted that anti-discrimination laws reach into matters dealing with the home.

    I wonder when someone will admit that anti-discrimination laws reach into transactions made on the street corner.

    It's mine because either I or someone else bought it and put it in my name. It's not naturally mine.

    Again, you should really understand the philosophy you exalt.

    Henrin. Where have you been? Civil Rights laws have covered the sale and rental of housing since the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

    There is no natural right to property. I have to purchase it unlike the air I breathe which is a natural right. Government protects my rights to my property.
