    Should a Muslim Owned Business Be Legally Permitted to Refuse Service to Gay [W:150]

    Self explanatory. This is a consistency check for all sides. Does changing up the religion itself change anything?

    No. Some may sympathize cause Muslims are themselves an often vilified minority in this country, but it's still as hateful and wrong.

    As someone with a Muslim landlord, in a state that may pass its own "RFRA," this is rather personal. It does have me a little concerned.

    You already didn't believe the consistency of my position in the other thread on the basis that liberals will want to pretend to appear fair. So why will you believe the results here? If we were lying in the other thread, what changed to make you trust us in this one?

    When did you become more than one person?

    It is not surprising to me that you'd rather not answer the question posed. Incidentally, I made no comments at all about "liberals", so yeah, if you want to make stuff up, I would rather you do it somewhere else (though I, admittedly, have no control over it).

    Well seeing as you've already decided liberals are just sneaky hobbitses, are you sure you want us skewing the results of your poll?

    Businesses shouldn't be permitted to refuse service to someone because of their (perceived) sexuality. They can refuse to serve someone for a different reason (presuming that isn't also discriminatory or otherwise illegal) even if the customer also happens to be homosexual.

    Exactly the same principle should apply to other common grounds of discrimination such as race, religion, gender, nationality or disability.

    Not only should the law never be conditional on the religious beliefs of the business owner or staff member involved, it would be actively discriminatory in itself to have a law that made such a distinction.

    If a business cannot discriminate by race or gender, why would it be OK for sexual preference? Something that is no one elses business to begin with?

    So I say no, period.

    X Factor didn't decide that, society as a whole did.
