    Like many issues involving constitutional law, the law against discrimination in public accommodations is in a constant state of change. Some argue that anti-discrimination laws in matters of public accommodations create a conflict between the ideal of equality and individual rights. Does the guaranteed right to public access mean the business owner's private right to exclude is violated? For the most part, courts have decided that the constitutional interest in providing equal access to public accommodations outweighs the individual liberties involved.

    We all agree the restaurant has the right to do it, but we can still comment on the motivations behind it.

    I think people need to be more tolerant of each other. I've been in situations with screaming children and yes it's taxing on the nerves, but children are part of our society and our communities. Shutting them out just because they are children does not make sense to me.

    This restaurant's policy would make more sense if it targeted bad parenting, i.e. if a child is screaming and misbehaving, and the parent is doing nothing about it, then they should be asked to leave. I can only think of a handful of instances where I've been in populated, closed space (like a bus, restaurant, etc.) where a child was going crazy and the parent did nothing. MOST parents get stressed out by the idea that their child is annoying others and they want to put a stop to it right away.

    Target the bad parents, not all children. Anyway, from the looks of that diner, they don't exactly have the look and level of service that would demand more etiquette. They're a BBQ house and the owner is a little hoity toity.

    Particularly the property rights of the business owner at which you are attending. So if said business owner does not wish to have screaming kids in his business he should be more than free to make that call. Afterall, it's his property, you have no right to dictate the rules upon it.

    ... and your posting of what the law is does nothing to wipe away my opinion of what the law should be.

    You're right, it's not a reading issue. Must be something cognitive. At any rate, I've wasted enough time on explaining to you what most reasonable people could easily understand.

    Carry on.

    Your opinion on what the law should be has no bearing on this topic and that's not what I'm addressing. You can't confront fact with personal opinion. Good try though.
