    I don't think it is a good idea to start carving out exceptions for bigots.  

    Reducing the issue to "hurt feelings" is rather offensive actually.

    •  so who stays in a cake? (0+ / 0-)

      I once knew an old woman who lived in a shoe,
      but, I haven't heard of a snake that lived in a cake.

      The problem for hotels and roadside restaurants was
      by barring black customers, travel became impeded.

      but a florist?  Hardly impedes the average traveler.

      honestly within a year or two the bigots will be
      backpedalling hard.

      When their business falls 30-40%, they will have a lot of work to fix that.
