    Would you patronize a business that discriminated against LGBT people?

    If it were legal, and they made it known, would you?

    No, not knowingly. But discriminating against to me is different than just not agreeing with it. Had Chik Fil-A said they wouldn't serve LGBTs, I wouldn't eat there. But the guy has a right to his opinion. Well he did. He died. Probably not because he didn't like LGBTs.

    (if what you are asking has anything to do with Chik Fil-A. If not, carry on and ignore me.)

    If your business discriminates against anyone for any reason related to sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, handicap, etc then no I would not give you my business. And as stated above, disagreeing with something I agree with, like Chil-Fil-A, is different than refusing service to gay people.

    Lol I'll expand my view point a little too. I believe that when you live in a nation, you are to "render unto Caesar" or in other words, conduct yourself in a manner that is dictated by those who dictate the rules. This includes businesses.

    If im an individual and I decide to operate in commerce, that is my free will. No one is telling me I have to open up a business. If the law of the land dictates that your business, apartment complex, etc can't refuse commerce to someone based on a set of guidelines, then you must follow those guidelines. Again, you are not being forced to operate a business. You operate one of your own free will.

    Maybe, it depends on how you define discrimination, and the availability of choices.

    As a general rule I don't worry about the politics of business owners where I frequent. I shop at many places where business owners have differing political views then mine.

    Will use the baker example, if a baker refuses to sell a gay customer a cake that says "happy birthday Clarence" I wouldn't shop there, if a baker who's outwardly religious refuses to cater a gay wedding, I have no problem with that.

    And a business should not be able to opt out of medical plans due to their religious beliefs.

    If we just enacted single payer healthcare that wouldn't be an issue because then employers wouldn't be buying insurance

    Depends on the service or product provided, as well as the quality of said service or product. I would be completely willing to frequent an anti-LGBT business that provided pizza and/or sex, if it was very, very good pizza and/or sex.

    I try to be a conscious consumer. I try and support businesses that share my worldview, which includes fair wages, respect for the environment, and positive contributions to the community.
