There is a law that states you can refuse to do business with another individual if it suits you?
I don't see a problem there.
But what we are hearing from some nutballs is that a law should be passed to force people to refuse business with a certain group?
That's just retarded.
Do business with who you want and refuse who you want. That's freedom.
Do business with who we tell you to do business with. That's some totalitarian bullshit.
Do these idiots not understand the concept of freedom?

It's not quite that simple. Anti-discrimination laws exist to prevent systematic, institutionalized discrimination against groups of people.

Anyone who does business with the public must do business with all of the public.

You really want segregation back?

No. What I want is the right to refuse business on the grounds that it's my company and my property. I should be able to sell only to those I choose. That's not segregation. That's me doing with my property what I choose. If I put my car up for sale to the public can I not refuse to sell it to an individual for whatever reason.
I mean we are talking about private business right?

No, actually we're not. You can sell your car to whomever you choose, but if you have a business open to the public, it's open to all of the public.

In that sense, your business is not private.

When do we stop populated the world with stupid people?

A wise person makes their own decisions; an ignorant one follows public opinion.

RE: In MS if you do not discriminate you are discriminating
Looks like some of MS is not happy with the religious freedom bill. 8 cities have passed anti-descrimination ordances of some sort. The cities include Jackson, the capital.

I am lazy this morning so you just get a link.
