And I could not imagine denying to sell a product based on a religious belief focused on this one issue.
i wondered if you had thought this through?
Yes, I have thought this through.
My decision is to sell to gays, blacks, Muslims, women, and anyone else. I see a person in front of me. Not a selected sinner, or someone I prejudge based on fear, bias or prejudice. Sorry, you will not see a "We serve no gays!" sign on my office wall or my front door. While I acknowledge that the "Good ol' Boy" network is still alive along with other not so "in your face" approaches to not selling to one person or another, I am just wondering how far some would go if they could. I see for some, we are not even talking forcing some to the back of the bus. We are talking about not even allowing them on the bus.
Rush used to just a few years ago say that the left could not stand on their principles. That they could not win in the arena of open dialog and ideas. This was his repeated call. Two or three weeks ago, it seems to have changed. He was now telling listeners to avoid certain questions if asked. He told them to change the subject all together. If asked about rape babies and other matters, to not partake in those "trap" subjects. I see some must be listeners as this seems to be the protocol. :) It seems better to not tell the truth than have actually discuss it.
Thank you for the replies so far. It reaffirms some of my thoughts.
I always took the "get out of my life" approach to government. But I see where this may lead if this actually did completely happen. And I can only imagine how far this would go with signs posted on each door of stores in town, telling who should enter and who should not. Perhaps a little government is what some need. :)
