Free to Discriminate
Kaleesha and I were discussing this recent attempt in Missouri to introduce a "right to refuse service" religious freedom bill yesterday and it occurred to me that there might be some merit to the idea. But it would come with a requirement. Allow business owners to discriminate but require a sign in several prominent places that clearly states who they will not serve. Then we, as customers and neighbors, will clearly see who it is in our community we should boycott. I have no interest in doing business with anyone who cannot tolerate (even better, accept and embrace) other humans because of some trait they were born with. It's past the time we evolve beyond such cultural baggage. Here's her post about it.
