Obviously i disagree with you, i see it as an issue of prejudice with the potential to persecute others and make their life a misery. Not all people/regions have a large market, and i feel that alot of the people who agree with these measures would feel very differently if they were on the reciving end of such treatment and were not in possesion of other options. It's a very slippery slope.

So if I want to be a pedophile and never force myself on anyone unwilling you think I should be able to sue when im told I cant go to Lego Land and hit on the youngsters. Before you say yes I will say...try going to Lego Land as a male adult without kids with you...bet you waste a trip when they refuse you service.
If this is that case and my understanding is correct, where do business owners get to draw the line? Photographers have had this same problem. Should we be required to participate in something that violates our personal morality (whether or not you agree with it) because you feel you have some right to a good or service we provide?

Apparently you don't understand at all. The only difference is no one bats an eye at certain discrimination, especially if it is discrimination they would also participate in.
Would people accept it if McDonalds refused to serve Asian people as a blanket policy? Or Walmart stopped letting catholics shop there? No, because despite them being 'private' they are considered part of the public space and they have certain responsibilities.
