With Vermont and New York banning non essential travel to Mississippi due to the new law, does this prove the far left have utterly lost their minds?

Not really. It's politicians using what influence and power they have to do what they think is right. Some, it's to allow specific groups of people to be discriminated against while enjoying the protections government gives their businesses. For others, it's to make sure that if businesses are utilizing those protections, that groups of people are protected too.

Why else would you refuse to do business with someone when you have a business that is open to the public?

Because it would go against their religion if they were to do so. Let me ask you something. Is it okay for a Muslim bakery to not bake a gay wedding cake?

Why? That's their constitutional right. They are exercising their first amendment right to practice their religion. If they don't want to make a gay wedding cake, the government shouldn't force them to do so.

You do not have a constitutional right to discriminate. If your religion calls you to do so, then do not open a business offering goods services to the public.

Your wrong. You do have the constitutional right to discriminate. Can you show me where you cannot? If I run a private enterprise, I can deny service to anyone for any reason.

If a Christian doesn't want to serve someone who is divorced or remarried, they should have that right. Their business might suffer, but big brother shouldn't have the right to tell private businesses what to do.

The easiest way to show that it is not a Constitutional right is the fact that you have to pass a law to make it legal.

Interesting how that works, huh? We need to pass laws to obtain licenses in order get firearms. What's up with that? It's in the constitution.

Its just what the liberals want! They are big into restricting everything, so the less states they are allowed to go to, the happier they are. Sometimes I think the liberals would really enjoy North Korea.

Just a few examples, anti-science climate deniers, then there are those trying to get a believe in creationism alongside biology text books in school. Oh and I can't forget the gun nuts. Then there's this aversion to mass transit. And what exactly is a religious freedom bill?

The religious freedom bill is allowing businesses to deny LGBT people, and there is nothing wrong with that.

No, I don't agree with someone with someone denying a homosexual person a job, but it will only turn out bad for them and it is ultimately, their decision

Yes, it's the owners decision to choose wether or not to hire someone

I see in some instances, it's the other way around. PayPal and Bruce Springsteen are just two examples. Once the Grand old party's racist and bigot's understand that Commerce will flow out of their states, they may wise up.

It's an extreme are yes. But the only way to prevent further discrimination is to take steps such as that. Denying service to someone solely on who they are as a person is literally what Jim Crow south was. If you try to defend discrimination, then yes, you are a bigot.

Here's a question, should the Jew be forced to hire the Nazi?

Optimally, there would be only "Nazis".

They shouldn't be forced to hire the Nazi but they shouldn't be able to say no specifically because of their beliefs.

So can't the business owner choose who to hire because of his beliefs?

EPluribusUnum The Midwest

They shouldn't be able to deny someone because of who that person is. We saw how horrible that thinking was in the 1960s in the south. Now it's just LGBT people who are being denied service instead of people of color. Same storyline, conservatives want to deny service to people they see as inferior, only this time there is a new character.

They should ban all non-essential stage travel to everywhere.

I somewhat disagree. Travel and mixing in other places lets people see alternative working practices in person and exchange ideas. It's a catalyst for improvement. Yes, waste should be avoided. It's hard to pin a direct value on such things though, I think there should be some leeway.

No. It proves that Mississippi is a backward place that has taken a huge step back.

Would you happily accept a law that allows secular institutions to deny services to anyone who believes in a god?

I would deal with it and go to the next shop and not throw a temper tantrum. Refusing to serve people is just life

Actually Kscott, the first amendment not only guarantees us the right of religious freedom, but it also guarantees that the government will remain secular in legislation (i don't know how people forget this It's 2016). If the government does not remain secular, it is counter-intuitive because one particular religion is being favored by the government; therefore, those who don't follow that religion are just shunned aside. Trying to ban same-sex marriage is not only culturally backwards, but unconstitutional. It's actually the OPPOSITE of religious freedom. It forces people to live their lives according to Christian beliefs, no matter what their religion may be. Don't agree with it? Too bad because the government no longer cares about secularity and they claim this is now the very definition of "religious freedom." It is really disgusting to me how conservatives have twisted that phrase to their side when really, this is the exact opposite of religious freedom.

Exactly, Ike.

Actually it doesn't guarantee that the Gov't stay secular and that's also not what the Founders intended. They simply wanted the freedom OF religion without there being a forced state religion. By forcing a business owner, who is also a person with rights, to serve a patron against their will and their deeply held religious beliefs is not religious freedom at all. That's why this bill is a blessing. Further, same sex marriage goes against more than just Christianity so no particular religion is favored anyway. It also goes against biology considering two people of the same sex cannot produce children.

I'm curious to know which state-funded travel is considered non-essential to begin with? Why are taxpayer funds being used for anything besides essential travel?
