    The beauty of the free-market.

    There was a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco with a rude waiter. People would go there to be insulted.
    It was amusing to watch the reactions of the unsuspecting customers when they were attacked out of the blue.

    Odd you bring it up; I just read there was one in London: Wong Kei It even had a fanbase and they called themselves “Wonkies”[sic] or something like it. However, they apparently revamping and becoming politer once they reopen.

    I’d like to see how the market place rewards or punishes two businesses, one with the motto, “The customer is always right.”, and another with the motto, “Only the right people are our customers.” If you can get Hollywood to adopt your exclusivity, then it can be trendy.

    Durgin Park in Boston is famous for insulting people; their waitresses are carefully selected to be hilariously snarky. It goes back a LONG way there.
    Arizona, on the other hand — no. Just no.

    The economics are a mess. Meaning, they don’t have any good ‘rules-of’thumb’. If you have one large group of customers who will eat across the street if you admit a small group then…


    Of course, if the law makes all restaurants equal and prohibits banning the small group, then the group of restaurants as a whole does better, but those who made money by excluding the smaller group might lose money when they don’t have that attraction to bring the larger group into a restaurant with worse, more expensive food.

    A lifestyle choice should not have to be forcibly catered to. That is what this is really about.
    .
    At the risk of invoking Godwin’s Law, two examples:
    .
    A family dressed as Nazi’s (uniforms, kids as Hitler Youth, the whole nine yards) come into a Jewish Kosher bakery and want a cake made with swastika, SS runes, and “Happy Birthday Adolph” along with “Work will make you free” on it.
    Should they be able to refuse to do so?
    .
    A gay couple come in and ask for a wedding cake for their gay union in a bakery run by Muslims, devout Christians, or other owners that object to gay marriage.
    .
    Now, the difference is if either of the two above individually came in looking no different than any other customer and simply ordered a cake or other product with nothing specific to their lifestyle choices (and both being a Nazi and having a gay marriage are lifestyle choices… and no, for the slow, Progressive, and easily offended, I am NOT comparing the two in any way, shape or form both are CHOICES in lifestyle) then the business should not be able to refuse service. But, they should be able to on the basis of choices a customer makes about their lifestyle that are found personally offensive.
    .
    A business can refuse to serve a customer that smokes (actual act) in their establishment.
    A business can refuse service if a customer lacks appropriate attire (no shirt, no shoes no service).
    This is no different but the Left and the LGBT community want to force every and all businesses to accept that lifestyle choice(s). That is wrong.

    Free market, not Sharia Law will take care of it. Sometimes you have the right to be a stupid idiot that does not understand what freedom is all about.

    Gay may or may not be a choice. Getting married IS.

    Religion is a lifestyle choice, and that is protected, Assuming sexuality is purely a lifestyle choice (which it isn’t) why shouldn’t it enjoy the same protection?

    It is not about what you are allowed to do or believe in yourself, it is all about imposing your beliefs upon other people.

    No the owner couldn’t. But, a couple coming in for specific items related to a specific event that is in conflict with the owner’s beliefs is a different matter.
    What if it was a Muslim bakery that was refusing to make any items for any other religion’s ceremonies from a Catholic confirmation, to a bar mitzva, to a Christian wedding because their religious beliefs are that doing that is a sin in Islam?
    .
    And I agree on your last point. It is probably moot. The tyranny of the Progressive Left and its intolerance of opposing ideas has won in the mass hysteria media.

    @earthworm

    I agree in at least principle with your sentiment Adrian. If only the world were that simple. Truth is we all have to tolerate the intolerant and jerks to the degree they exist. I think the best we can do is find a happy medium.
    I do think it is wrong to deny people equal rights on the basis of inate qualities (as opposed to their personal choices) but I also think it is wrong to impose personal choice on others simply because as an individual you feel some need to validate them.

    “What if it was a Muslim bakery that was refusing to make any items for any other religion’s ceremonies from a Catholic confirmation, to a bar mitzva, to a Christian wedding because their religious beliefs are that doing that is a sin in Islam?”
    Are you, perhaps, referring to Hobby Lobby , ,"One of our friends entered the store, asked where the Chanukah goods were, was told there wouldn’t be any, and asked why,” Berwitz wrote. “According to her, the answer was: ‘We don’t cater to you people.’”
    Berwitz then called the Hobby Lobby in Marlboro and inquired whether they would be stocking Chanukah merchandise and was told by the employee the store would not “because Mr. Green is the owner of the company, he’s a Christian, and those are his values.”
