“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”

“OK - so we agree there.
Do you believe homosexuals should not be a protected class?”
“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.”

“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?
“what if they are obscene rude and happen to be gay?”

“You either provide A) justification for their removal & provide evidence (security cam) B) call the authorities if they do not leave on their own free will. There's alternatives to protect yourself from false accusations.”
“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.”
“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?”
“While I support gay rights...I also support a business owners right to refuse service to anyone.”

“so Jim crow laws were fine in your book?”

“Then who are you kidding that you support gay rights ?”
Greg Royse on Feb 26, 2014 at 17:42:54
“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.”
“Then this is the second time they have done it because they made a joke about an Indian/Asian boy's Family being on the other end of the phone when they call customer support.
Zero tolerance for intolerence”

“yes, I think that any attempt to make someone feel bad due to race ,sex, religion, etc... is not ok.”

“That actually sounds funny, it not intolerant.”

“That sounds darned funny. But you think it's intolerant?”
