    Hey, the man you want to be your slave is willing to sell you something, which is more than the rest of the market is willing to do. You either buy the hammer from me or do without. Your choice.

    Sorry, the government can't just decide what my rights are.

    rights are an absolute, FOR THE PEOPLE AT LARGE.

    rights of a single individual can be curtailed, if that person commits a crime, or violates health or safety.

    the bigot line, is nothing more than a poor rebuttal, ...to something to don't like......laws cannot be CREATED ON AN EMOTIONAL BASIS.

    The right to engage in trade. That goes with a person's liberty.

    Only with those that consent. Otherwise, you can't claim liberty, since your action is in violation of anothers liberty.

    Really, so you have a right to do whatever you want?

    That also equally applies to the person being denied the transaction. Your rights shouldn't trump another's.

    That is exactly what discrimination is though. It is based on emotions.

    I didn't consent to engage in trade with them. Both parties need to consent to engage in trade.
