Thanks for showing precisely why I disagree with GldnRule about having faith in my fellow man.

You alone are enough to destroy that illusion.

But in the hypothetical I offered, none of those grounds were in play.

I might be able to try for the mentally handicapped classification.

Half of this thread reads as though the participants have know knowledge or understanding of the Civil Rights Act or subsequent Supreme Court cases, such as Heart of Atlanta Motel v. U.S. The Supreme Court long ago established that businesses do not have the right to choose their customers without any government interference. The question is, will the right to be free of discrimination apply to sexual orientation in the same way that it applies to race, religion, ethnicity, etc.

homosexuality is a sexual act not a race or gender.

I thought the Native American photographer would have a valid reason for refusing to take pictures of the event, just like the photographer in New Mexico had a reason for refusing to take pictures at a gay wedding.

And what if a hotel owner believes it is wrong for black and white people to travel or stay in a hotel together? Do they have the right to refuse service to them on the basis of race?

As I understand the law, the answer is No.

Some people refuse service - or to serve in the military because they BELIEVE all or any killing of another human being whether illegal murder or state sanctioned murder is morally repugnant. To some this is a religious issue ....to others it is an a secular issue based on what is right or wrong. If someone does not want to do something because it is against their beliefs...No one has the right to take away their RIGHTS to facilitate the so-called rights of another. We are turning into a world of fearful yes men....Where is it carved in stone that it is illegal to say NO?
