The bar won the lawsuit. They also claim he’s doing it for a publicity stunt and actually tipped.

“Supporting Trump is not a religion,” Conway argued


I think this point could be argued against successfully.
Guys lawyer didn't even try.

But a bakery can refuse to serve a gay couple.
That's just fine.

if the guy actually tipped then he has been served, no one refused him. If it was a publicity stunt indeed, the bar owner should counter sue him...

What has the USA come to?


? You tell us OP. How about the full story?



From your link


The judge pressed Liggieri on the spiritual nature of his client's belief, saying the bar staff would not be aware of Piatek’s specific religious philosophies. “How many members are in this spiritual program that your client is engaged in?” the judge asked. “Your honor, we don’t allege the amount of individuals,” Liggieri said. “So, it’s a creed of one?” the judge asked....

The Happiest Hour denied that Piatek had been removed in the first place, stating Piatek “was sufficiently pleased with his service at the bar [and] that he added” a $36 tip onto the $186 tab, according to the New York Post. The bar owners suggest Piatek’s lawsuit was a “publicity stunt.”

There are many restaurants and establishments that have a dress code. Jacket and tie in many.
Shirt and shoes in most.
The owner can impose any dress code they want.

Ideological segregation. It was only a matter of time I suppose.


I like this. It points out who the bigots actually are.

Who wears trucker hat to an uptown bar? I'm actually surprised he wasn't told it was a dress code violation. That would have been a much more simple means of dealing with a wardrobe faux pas.

It's one bar not a nationwide ban.

Maybe the leftists who side with the bar owner can set up separate drinking fountains for people who don't think like them.

Remember when men removed their hats when they entered a building?
