    The gay-hating RW go on with "choose another florist" assuming that there is an endless supply of businesses who ARE willing to deal with lesbians and gays.

    I hadn't really thought about how my driving trip through Europe with my best straight friend would have been affected if it had happened in states like Arizona after passage of this outrageous law. Sightseeing mornings and afternoons and getting hotel rooms when it started getting dark worked until we ended up in rural Switzerland on a long weekend and everywhere we checked was 100% booked. Fortunately, we ended up in probably the last hotel room within 100 miles.

    Flash forward to AZ: the gay-hating innkeeper looks at two 30something men and decides that we must be sinful gays and turns us away. How do we prove that we're not gay, that we're just tourists seeing the sights? Even if we did prove a negative, would it matter to the innkeeper who might fear that we would be overcome with passion?

    Bottom line: we might have had to sleep in the rental car overnight because our AZ hotel owner might have been offended by something that we potentially might have done! Good law.
