Agreed. Did you see this yet?

This is also a very good article:
As Harvard law professor Noah Feldman pointed out yesterday in a Bloomberg view column, segregationist business owners in the South argued after the civil rights act of 1964 that their “constitutional right to associate” as they chose should permit them not to serve black customers.(The religious-liberty right, Feldman notes, has the same “constitutional status” as the right to associate.) But courts never said that this was permissible.

We may laugh today at the idea that the racist owner of a hardware store in Natchez in 1965 could have refused to sell a black carpenter a bag of masonry nails. But it was no laughing matter then. This was real. Congress, and then the courts, put a stop to it. As Feldman told me yesterday in a follow-up exchange:“Freedom to associate and exercise religion are basic rights. Excluding customers isn't.”

The freedom to associate that Feldman mentions is one carve-out that courts have recognized. But that’s a narrow exemption, intended in real life mostly for private or fraternal organizations that are built around some idea of ethnic cohesion—New York’s Ancient Order of Hibernians, for example, which quite famously has been allowed for years to ban gay people and groups from marching in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade....

But a business vending to the general public? No way. If these “Christians” in Arizona are permitted to deny their services to same-sex couples, then atheist small-businesses owners in Berkeley are perfectly within their rights to hang a sign:“No Christian evangelicals served.” It would be crazy for courts to open that door.

When faced with these issues about laws and rights, the people like Phil simply can't give an honest answer other than I don't like gays and lesbians.

That wasn't freedom of religion...that was discrimination. You don't want to we've gays in your business, move to Uganda. This is America..you can't discriminate agains the consumers.
What the queers are doing is really reverse discrimination. The queers have bastardized the meaning of the word discrimination, just like they have redefined marriage.

The Constitution clearly defines Freedom of Religion, making it an expressed right. Freedom from discrimination, as the homosexuals have twisted it is a derived or implied right.
Brewer's lack of balls had more to do with her decision than the Constitution.

I'm not surprised to find a hater of humanity ignorant of the meaning of words over two syllables.

You are making yourself look very STUPID!

Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, or national origin in certain places of public accommodation, such as hotels, restaurants, and places of entertainment. The Department of Justice can bring a lawsuit under Title II when there is reason to believe that a person has engaged in a pattern or practice of discrimination in violation of Title II. The Department can obtain injunctive, but not monetary, relief in such cases. Individuals can also file suit to enforce their rights under Title II and other federal and state statutes may also provide remedies for discrimination in places of public accommodation.
