    Of course not if it was in my control and it was discrimination based on sexual orientation.

    I absolutely can, sport. I am just not likely to bother with those who make up their own interpretations when not liking the answers.

    Ah, once again, just avoiding it when you cant support your opinion. I included all the quotes to make it quite clear.

    This seems like a pattern for you.

    I patronize whatever business I like. If the owner doesn't approve of homosexuals, it's not my concern. And if he's violating some law, it's not my job to enforce it.

    Depends, if it was a business owner morally opposed to SSM and didn't want their products to be used to advance that I'd be fine with the business. If they flat out banned all gay people I wouldn't put my money there.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    A restaraunt refusing to serve gays would not get my business. The same owner that served gays in the restaraunt, but then flat out declined their offered contract to cater their gay wedding would still get my business.

    Re: Would you patronize a business that discriminated against LGBT people?

    It would depend on what is meant by "discrimination".

    A place that says "no, you are a homosexual, get out"? Generally, no.

    A place that says "we won't serve gay weddings"? Sure, I'd eat there.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    You'd have to define discrimination. Sometimes people say something is discrimination that others wouldn't categorize that way.

    I would not patronize a business that discriminated against any group.
