    No, your "we were designed as..." crap is -in fact- crap. There can be no doubt whom is the majority power nationally.

    You think a local business cannot be considered in a national context? Ahhh... more pangs of pity.

    I thought you made the great boast about understanding what the Founders wrote, where is that understanding, because it doesn't show from your comments here. And again, we vote and participate very little nationally. It's in the name United STATES of America.

    So, you still can't think of an answer and so double down on the false expression of emotional angst.

    Thus, the context MUST be national or global, not local.
    Which company that stretches across the country would discriminate?

    Re: Would you patronize a business that discriminated against a race?

    I voted yes because I have patronized businesses over the years that discriminated. I believed most of us have whether we wish to acknowledge it. In my travels which have take me through all 48 lower states with the goal to see as much of this country as possible I have stopped for gas and/or meal in hundreds of clearly racial establishments. Of course in our politically correct society today it may not be as in your face obvious but they are still everywhere.

    While most of us picture the store in Mississippi with the sign no N-----s allowed I have stopped in many black neighborhoods and was clearly informed that my life was in jeopardy and I did not belong in this part of town.

    A neighborhood store (owned by an Asian) I would stop at most mornings for a coffee and donut one morning had a sign in the window "No blacks allowed". I entered the store and explained to him he could not post such a sign in this country. He argued with me that he did not want them in his store because of the number of times he had them on tape shoplifting. He explained how he tried to show the tapes to police who could care less about his problem.

    He eventually put an electronic lock on the door to keep them from leaving with the merchandise until he could make them put it back or pay for it. A very dangerous game unfortunately necessary in his neighborhood. He eventually moved to a better neighborhood.

    Fundamentalist Christians would seem to be the exception, there are lots of them that don't want to "catch the gay".
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    While that might be true in other parts of the world, I'm not seeing Muslim-owned businesses in the U.S. that are doing that. It's all Christian. In other parts of the world, they'd probably just kill you if they didn't like you.

    This is about race, not sexual orientation.
