    If the point is to force prejudiced shop owners out of business, what will force them out of business faster then if everyone knows they are prejudiced? Who is going to shop at a store that everyone knows will not sell to women or 'blacks'? Hardly anyone and so the business will be forced to change or go under.

    But if you force some racist pig by law to sell to 'blacks' say...he will probably resent it more, blame Obama/other 'blacks' and just go underground...knowing he has to keep his pathetic hatred quiet.

    Now me, I would FAR rather know my neighbour was racist then not know.
    But someone could miss out on an important job opportunity because they were denied a suit, shoes, tie, dress, etc, making their life harder solely because of unfair discrimination.

    What's the difference between a gay customer from other customers?

    And you say Muslims aren't in the cross hairs and have nothing to fear? Really?

    *mind officially boggled*
    Of course I'm not kidding. Perhaps you could try to provide a comment based on the context of the question, as opposed to running off on some meme from the central office.

    It has been documented there are Muslim businesses who refuse to provide services to LGBT couples. Where is your outrage?

    Perhaps the boggled minds of the ProgLib has kept such outrage under wraps, or it's the wrong religion to denigrate. One or the other is true.

    Where is the official documentation of Muslim businesses that have legitimately refused LGBT couples? I'm all for refusing to do business with them, if there is a legitimate complaint of their refusal (hint, that rightwing idiot who tried to set people up is not "official documentation). (Seriously, I want to know so that I can avoid them if in those areas.)

    This expresses an answer to your question well. I hope you'll take the time to read the entire article and be as objective as I know you can be. In fact, I think it's the best article written on this matter of a double-standard regarding Islam. I think you need to really look at it, and see why many of us Christians (who btw do not condone any violence done under the Christian banner) are upset that in THIS DAY AND AGE with information available everywhere for everyone.....that a double standard is allowed in the name of fear and diversity.

    It is an editorial and it does not answer my question in the least.

    Nope. No business should be allowed to.

    A lot of the left, liberals, democrats are afraid and some are just cowards. They can't even say "Islamic" extremism for crying out loud. There total Politically Correct. After all words can hurt...

    If Christuans were cutting peoples heads off for decades you can bet they'd call them Christian. Smell that? Smells like hypocrisy

    Re: Should a Muslim Owned Business Be Legally Permitted to Refuse Service to Gay [W:1

    I would like my own state's public accommodations law not to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual preference, or, for that matter, on the basis of several other characteristics not covered by federal public accommodations law. I don't presume to tell the people of any other state whether they should prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual preference in their public accommodations laws. That is entirely up to the majority in each state to decide--nothing in the Constitution prohibits private persons from discriminating in that way.
