    That's up to the individual business owner I suppose. As long as I am treating people the way I want to be treated I will leave the judgement up to their maker. I don't believe a business should be forced to cater to anyone they don't want to or support any idea or agenda their particular religion is against. In my business I won't turn away anyone. I'm not going to ask who you sleep with or who you pray to and I don't expect you to tell me that info.

    Why do people feel the need to give all that private info out in the first place?

    If you are asked, in exchange for a fee, to directly participate in something that you believe is immoral, you wouldn't turn that custom away?

    So to you, money matters more than moral standards?
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No money is not the most important thing to me, but it is very important to my business. I keep my business and my personal beliefs separate. I don't hold any ill will towards a business that doesn't. I just have a hard time understanding why you would be in the business of turning away money for your service. Isn't that the primary role of being in business, to make money?

    So, you have no problem, then, running your business in a manner that you personally would find to be immoral? Your morals and ethics apply only to your personal life and not to how you conduct your business?

    As long as my business is run within the confines of the law then I am not sure how I could be put into a position of immorality. I didn't build my business around my personal beliefs and do not run it that way.

    I understand not wanting to cater a gay wedding if It was against my religion, which is why I agree with businesses being able to refuse service. I think I would find a way to provide the service and still not cater it. Either by contracting it out or negotiating with the clients.

    Been there, done that, and it didn't have to include "because my religion doesn't approve".

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
