Indiana "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" controversy

Recommended Posts

It isn't relevant either. Want to do it, know how to do it, whatever. A person doing the job can decide what kind of jobs they want to work on, and the reasons don't matter.

The reasons do matter.

So you're discriminating against people's choices. Making a value judgement over who is worthy and who is not. How deliciously hypocritical of you.

Blatant discrimination against people matters.

If they don't give a reason why they won't do it, is that still discrimination?

Are private businesses compelled to provide services to any and everyone?

If that were even remotely true, people would not be discriminated against for their religious beliefs. Or for their age, or for their gender. Educational backgrounds, job histories, language skills, job history, public appearance, physical capabilities, and on and on... People pick and choose who they will and will not discriminate against all the time. As do governments.

We are talking about businesses that serve the general public.

Yes we are.

They can't discriminate.

Hell, even where they tried to make it legal to discriminate (see thread topic) it backfired on them.

Ya, you need to give better examples because none of the ones you've used so far involved businesses providing service to the general public that get away with discrimination.

Private clubs don't count.

Hiring for jobs doesn't count.

Providing service in an area of professional expertise doesn't count.

Such as..............?

I already gave a list. Lots of examples have been given in this thread. Businesses in all walks of life make discriminatory decisions on a daily basis about who they will hire and who they will serve. In many cases they even get government subsidies if they can prove that they have discriminated to a sufficient level.

Hiring is a matter of expertise and non-discrimination also, and not the topic of this thread.

You can't seem to substantiate your claim with any appropriate examples of businesses serving the public being allowed to discriminate ... because none are allowed to discriminate.

I see.

Another non answer. Yay!!

The answers are already in this thread multiple times. I'm not falling for your troll bait. Do your own homework.

Really? Restaurant hostesses aren't hired for their attractiveness?

Not much of what you're saying is specifically about the topic of this thread either. I was just responding to your narrow-minded nonsense.

I refuted all of your examples.

Go back and find any that you think stand up.

You gave no appropriate examples.

Prove it.

Cite one.

You cite one. You're doing nothing but trolling, trying to get people to waste time rehashing that same things you've already been told that you had no credible answer for. It's what you do in almost every thread (see the nonsense you're spouting in the aboriginal title thread right now for another classic example). You want to keep talking in circles, you do the work.

I blew all of your examples away.

People serving the general public cannot discriminate, even in Indiana.

You didn't even come close, not even once. Repeating yourself won't make it true.

You can't.

Because you're wrong.

I'm still waiting for you to score single point. Just because you can't stop talking, doesn't mean you've said anything of value.

This may have been mentioned earlier, ever have a an interview when trying to find a new family doctor? I have, smokers weren't welcome, other people have too, some turned down for being too old, here in Canada. I wouldn't say it's the right thing to do, but it happens. Discriminatory?
