    They'll always go against Christianity more than any other religion or group.

    Should any business owned by members of any religion or atheists be permitted to refuse service to anyone?

    I say if you open a business you must serve everyone equally.

    If you're the only grocery store in a small town, then sorry, you don't get to refuse service to anyone. If you're the 47th pizza place in a 2 mile radius, then you can discriminate to your heart's content.
    Lol, if the market can support forty seven pizza places in a two mile radius we might have a very serious obesity problem on our hands.

    Say hello to Pennsylvania. If you have six months to live and want to spend your last moments on earth gorging on pizza, that's the state for you.

    Hellz to the no.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Apparently forcing atheists to remain silent during silent prayers regardless of what the silent prayer is stated as being for is fine by you. Such as for God to save the nation from homosexuals.

    Forced attendance, participation or even forced to not be critical of a religion as a condition of employment, avoidance of fines and possibly even prosecution IS the government forcing religion on people - which is what you want.
    You said that you want religious people to be able to discriminate on the basis of "well established religious beliefs"! And that's not going to fly, sorry.

    Unless doing so runs counter to "well established religious beliefs"!

    If you're not ready to serve everyone who comes to your door, don't open up a business.
