“not to refuse service based on a protected class ie black, disabled, women but to refuse service based on behavior in their establishment. or not wearing shoes or shirts...that all seems understandable to me”

Greg Royse on Mar 5, 2014 at 19:28:42

“OK - so we agree there.

Do you believe homosexuals should not be a protected class?”

“Funny..the only class seeking protection, Vanessa, is conservative Christians.

They want protection to be able to legally discriminate.”

“The Jim Crow laws were disgusting. You are very intelligent and I appreciate your patience in walking me through this. I feel that a business owner should be able to refuse service to anyone...it is their business.”

Greg Royse on Feb 27, 2014 at 18:59:58

“Your statement appears contradictory. Jim Crow laws were put in place to allow business owners to refuse service to black people. You said Jim Crow laws were disgusting. But does that mean you support the Jim Crow laws as they allowed business owners to refuse service to minorities? But feel that is morally reprehensible?

I'm genuinely confused.”

“And you have obviously convinced yourself of that - but on it's face it's not true given your belief that business should be allowed to discriminate against gay people. You are implicitly admitting that you are okay with "whites only" signs.”

“no.”

Greg Royse on Feb 27, 2014 at 10:47:09

“Then you remember Jim Crow laws some of which allowed businesses to refuse service to African Americans based on their skin color? Or allowed ministers to refuse to marry two people because they were of different races? I could go on for a while...

You still support their right to "refuse service" to that segment of the population?”

“Did you miss the entire civil rights movement?”

“Same garbage they said when it became illegal to treat blacks this way. The racists always claim Jesus is on their side, funny enough if they actually met Jesus, they would have discriminated against him.”

“I disagree, especially if it's based on their sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, etc. If they're acting obscene or rude, sure, they have every right.”
