    It's funny hearing Christians argue for the power to disenfranchise people who are not heterosexual Christians. Whatever happened to "Love thy neighbor as thyself"? Did they somehow forget that Jesus said it was only the second most important commandment in the entire Old Testament?

    I wouldn't refuse anyone as it would interfere with my profit ..besides i'm not going to ask everyone who comes into my business if they were a hetero/homosexual or someone who follows a religion.

    Money is money, what people are or what they believe would likely be inconsequential to my business.

    maybe stop trying to shove them out of the public square, then.

    If I may quote Andrew Sullivan:

    ... If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us....
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Lots ot people have believed to believe nothing wrong, because the knew the law. Some have been hanged from time to time for acting on their belief. And rightly so, if not in this case.

    And again, then you have already invested your time to them. Especially since the majority of those refusing service are claiming to only refuse certain services. And most Christians or those of other faiths even do not refuse service to gays, even for their weddings. It is only a few.

    If they can paint the current issue as one where their beliefs are being oppressed, they get to ignore the fact that they historically oppressed a group of people. It's a pretty dishonest argument from the anti-gay side but you find it in pretty much every civil rights issue. Blacks had to deal with people telling us that segregation was a personal belief that couldn't be pushed aside so that we could have equal rights. Now, the same is being done to gays. In 20 years, religious American will look REALLY silly for that.

    Sounds like normal life to me. Sometimes you come across something that rubs you the wrong way even after you've already invested some time.
