Sorry, the courts and the legislatures don't. Too bad, so sad.

If a business is open to the public, it is all of the public.
Don't like it? Open a private club. But you'd better restrict it to just members.

Which is why the law needs to be changed.

Ok, that's a valid argument. We can proceed from there.

As someone else pointed out, what if a business chose not to serve Christians? Or blacks? Is that ok? Do you think that as a society we should allow people to keep control of who they admit to their business? Or do you give up certain rights when you open a business to serve the general public?

Yes! That's freedom. Just like in the Hobby Lobby case women can get their own birth control.

Good luck with that. Your opinion is not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

Amendment XIV Wrote:No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

That decision (likely to be overturned) has nothing to do with the issue.

The constitution has been amended many times before - no reason it can't be changed again.

RE: Christians continue to be persecuted.
If we allowed businesses to discriminate against who they serve wouldn't that just lead us back into segregation?
I could easily see this behavior turning into outright bigotry/racism with very possible violent attacks being perpetrated against anyone who didn't 'fit' the so-called 'norm'. Welcome back to the early '60's in southern America.
I'd like to know exactly how you think this type of society would be good for anyone.
