Doesn't change my underlying point, there is no good reason that a business can't pick who they serve. If you don't like it do business elsewhere. Let economics run the show, lose enough customers, go out of business. If it turns out it doesn't run em out of business then maybe there was enough of that select clientele to survive.


BS

Tow truck tows.

Black hair is a specialty. If they refused someone with black hair then they are in violation.

Either he could "Feel the Bern" walking home. I would have done the same thing the driver did, I don't see a problem with it.

I think it's pretty sad that the old idea of America being a place where everyone was free to be themselves has morphed into a place where anyone can inflict their own religion and prejudices on the wider community.

How about believing what you like but respecting other people's right to be different?

That would be a start, wouldn't it?

Like I care.

He wasn't called for his political opinion - - his business is towing, not preaching.

I suppose you agree that it was OK to toss my physically disabled mom and her three kids (under 8) out of a restaurant because another customer complained that it made them uncomfortable.

Well, then you'd have acted like a dick! Same as he did. Good that you would have no problem acting like a dick, I guess.
You're not alone, though - no worries.

Twice I had to throw customers out. Both decided I should donate my services to the church for God.

In other words, they did not want to pay.

ya, federal law probably prohibits business owners from choosing not to serve christians..
they're protected and probably would scream to the highest court in the land for that protected if they were refused service at their local waffle shop because for expressing their faith loudly enough for everyone in the place to know their religion. but a bumper sticker, oh.... that is so offensive!! unless of course, it has a little fishie on it!

like I said, if they want to pick out different groups they choose not to serve, they should at least be required to post hat information on the front door of their business, in their ads, ect. if they don't the ad is soliciting business from those groups, and therefore, it's false advertising if they plan on denying them when they come in for the advertised service.

Okay - good to know. We'll cross you off the list of those who might ever need a social safety net.
Whew! One fewer mouth to feed. Good deal.

How do you feel about all the Muslims rampaging around the world? A small minority that doesn't represent the rest, right?


Not sure how that has anything to do with this topic?

Or you just shoe horning muslims in for the sake of it? Why dont we throw mexicans in while we are at it!
don't let me get in the way of your Christian shoe horning.

Funny.

I am A Christian.

I just don’t use my faith as a excuse to be a dick.

I’m a dick because I want to be not because Jesus tells me to be

This is literally like that one time in the Bible, when Jesus went surfing and fed all of his Jewish friends fish and bread, and all-you-can-drink wine, and those stupid gentiles came and tried to crash the party, but Jesus was all, "No way, bruh!" and sent them on down the road with nada.

If they choose to make it a private club with specific membership they could in theory get away with it.

What Commie is running? There are no commies running for president.
And if you left anyone on the side of the road when you were called by the first responders to assist her, you would be equally a dick.

Okay, anyway - good to know that you would have left her there.
So then, it will be perfectly acceptable for others to refuse to help you also, should you ever need it. Right? And you won't have any reason to bitch or anyone to go crying to. Right?
You reap what you sow.

Act like a jerk, get treated like a jerk. It's an easy concept.




When the tables are turned it's usually spun as a Christian persecution story.

No problem like any respectable person I will work until I draw my last breath. I have valued skills I don't need handouts.

So then you agree.

OK to kick physically disabled women out of restaurant because of "ICK" factor.
