Oklahoma Democrat Wants Christian Businesses To Identify Themselves With Notices In Windows
I'm sure the last group to try this thought they were justified as well...
Oklahoma Democratic state Rep. Emily Virgin wants Christian businesses to post a public notice of discrimination if they intend to claim that they have a religious right to refuse service to LGBT people. State Rep. Chuck Strohm (R) introduced a bill, the Oklahoma Religious Freedom Act, earlier this year that would allow businesses like wedding cake bakers and photographers to deny services if it was "against the person's religious beliefs." [...] The amendment to HB1371 introduced by Virgin on Tuesday would require religious businesses to come out of the closet.Virgin is proud of her original idea, and so are many of her followers. The last time fascists tried this, it worked out so well for the business owners.

Is there anything in the bill that mentions race? Or is Virgin trying to create even more controversy?

Every business should have a sign in the window or near the cash register that says "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." Problem solved!

My wife and I said it sounded like the past number of years here. And now one of the most popular bullet calibers is being arbitrarily banned.
By unelected "officials".

How long before the queers demand that the teaching of the Lord be labeled hate speech and banned.
The Harm the queers will inflict on Christians is to demand that we invent a Lord who approves of sodomy, or be fined, or jailed for our religious beliefs.

The homosexual activists are no different than any of the other liberal hypocrites out there. They claim to want tolerance, but only coerced tolerance and ONLY ONE WAY. They want you to be forced to tolerate them no matter your own personal religious beliefs. However, they believe they are under no obligation to tolerate your or what you believe in.

Let's say you're a vegan and own a catering business. Since you won't touch animal products, you specialize in vegan food and cater to the other vegans in your area.
One day a man or woman comes in saying they want you to do the catering for an upcoming event. The two of you start discussing the menu when the customer says they want meat and cheese. You politely decline and tell them you're a vegan and won't touch animal products. The customer leaves. Later you find the would be customer has filed a lawsuit against you and fighting this lawsuit will likely force you out of business. So you have the choice of violating your deeply held beliefs or losing the business you worked for years to build.
You wonder why does this person not go to another caterer who has no problem with animal products. Why do they seem hell bent on forcing you into bankruptcy.
Libs, this is how the people feel who do not want to handle events involving homosexual weddings. It's a deeply held belief among them that marriage is not a union between two men or two women.
You have no business asking others to tolerate your beliefs if you won't tolerate theirs.
