  •  Bigotry only pays when it's a near-monopoly (6+ / 0-)

    If all actors are free to do business without social pressures, bigotry fails according to free market rules.  That's why Jim Crow laws required constant haranguing of the white population to enforce it, even though it wasn't always in their economic interest to do so.

    Given that marriage equality was endorsed by Maryland voters, this is going to to hurt Grubb by more than just forgoing the wedding business.  Bigotry isn't just a stupid tax, it leads to market selection for non-bigoted providers as well.

    What. A. Shame.
