Since this is legislation involving business, I fail to see what religion has to do with it.

MSgt David Hoffman - Yes, that actually would be a possibility. It would also be possible for small business owners, landlords, and real estate brokers to discriminate against racial minorities for "religious reasons". People forget that the bible was the number one excuse segregationists used.

"And he [God] made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place."
-Acts 17:26

SPC Angela Burnham - ??? Race is not mentioned in the Bible, unless you are somehow inferring that Adam was a rainbow of color.
As far as business discrimination is concerned, things have a way of working out. One case I was personally involved in involved a bar owner in the South who refused to serve blacks. We put the word out and all of us that used to stop there (white, black, Hispanic, Asian, etc. boycotted his establishment. Within weeks, he was begging....
No law required, just people banding together.

MSgt David Hoffman - I applaud you and your community for banding together to not tolerate that behavior, and I'm glad you were able to effect a positive change. But not all communities are so strongly tied together, there are businesses in my area that have done similar things and gotten away with it. The only way to make sure it never happens again once it happens the first time at an establishment, is to make it illegal to do so.

SPC Angela Burnham - Then we must agree to disagree. One of the major problems this country has developed is the proliferation of laws suited to the needs of any special interest group, regardless of how large or small. If people are not willing to band together, then let them suffer the consequences of their failure to do so.
