Me too! I don't wanna give my money to any cunts. If they could politely hang a sign in their window letting me know they are cunty, I'll happily shop at their competitors.
Any gay or lesbian bent out of shape about this is a fascist.
How come we never see anybody making a fuss at Muslim owned bakeries? They wanna throw us off the roof!

What many of the righteous ghetto dwellers above are missing is that this is about the ability of THE MAJORITY to use an avowal of deeply held religious beliefs to discriminate against minorities.
In real life lesbians, unmarried mothers, gay men and the like, generally don't get to call the shots. We're only a few percentage points. Still business owners generally follow the law.
If you're exhausted and far from home on the Interstate, what good is your "hear me roar" bravado, when the only hotel for miles legitimately refuses to rent their room with a single double bed to two men, due to the owners' deeply held religious beliefs? The owners might never have dreamed they could get away with that crap, if courts hadn't "blessed" it.

Thousands of local restaurants, that routinely refused to serve food to black people, changed their tune when the law changed. Sure, some did (and a few still do) need to be sued. But the overwhelming majority got with the program. That change in behavior would less likely have occurred if the courts had given them a ready made excuse to justify their Prejudiced behavior.
