Should a business be able to deny service if the request violates or conflicts the owner's religious beliefs?
Religion beliefs to not give you the right to hate.
Even restaurants have the right to refuse service. And they’re not even talking religious believes.
Private? Then yes.
"We reserve the right to refuse service"
Or more humorously written:
"No shoes, no shirt... no service
If America starts dancing on egg shells around everyone’s religion we will be going out of business left and right.
Yes. Anything else is fascist
The business owner gets to decide what products and services they will offer.
Yes, every store now needs to have a sign posted outside. No shoes, no Jews, no blacks, no Muslims, no gays, White Christians served here only! Isn’t America great again.
Harry, that is a complete mischaricterization. The baker would sell ready made goods to anyone. He is choosing what custom orders he will and won't do.
Are you aware that a baker in Colorado had a complaint filed against them for refusing to make a cake with two grooms and a large red circle with a slash through it over them. It also cited a bible passage. That baker didn't want to take on that custom order and won the discrimination complaint.
We can't let the fact that we disagree with the baker influence our conclusion. Any business owner has the right to refuse custom requests.
