    If a hater is married to a hater , I can tell them I don't like their marriage and they have to get lost ?
    Or does it only work one way ?

      discriminate against them is how I read it.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

      If I charged double for services for someone who would not say they were at least a little gay?  Most people I know would have no problem with this.  Or maybe not allow anyone into my homeless shelter who would not renounce jebus as the savior.  These laws are part of the economic discrimination.

      Many studies have show that firms can be more profitable if they are allowed to discriminate against an identifiable minority.  For instance, if a bus company were allowed to kick anyone off the bus who had blue eyes if a non blue eyed passenger needed the space.  They would still get the fare of the blue eyed people, but would not have to deliver a service.

      Likewise, in a market where gay couples are denied services, one can imagine that market forces would increase the cost to those couples, as they may have to move to alternative markets or pay more to convince service provider to deliver equal products.

      When xtians are denied their entitlements,they tend to cry, but they are all for discriminating against others.  This is why I have little sympathy when other countries discriminate against xtians,
