    Fortunately, AZ governor Jan Brewer vetoed this horrible law, which would have breathed life back into Jim Crow.

    It would have expanded Jim Crow to just about anybody that another person didn’t like, not just black Americans.

    As it should be, why should I have to serve anyone I don’t like, I’m a business not a government. I my beliefs put me out of business, then I put myself out of business.

    If you are a private business with public access then you must comply with anti-discrimination laws. Perhaps, you could get around them by becoming a private club?

    I suppose you could use a piping bag or perhaps modify a doughnut stuffing machine. The way most bakers who want more icing (fudge or any other flavor) though, is to carefully cut each layer in half and make a four layer cake. Here’s a link to create your own recipe… http://www.finecooking.com/articles/cyor/layer-cake.aspx

    It would be nice to be sure that Gov. Brewer vetoed because she knew that it wouldn’t pass Constitutional muster, or because she knew the law was seriously misguided. But it appears that she vetoed because of the threat of lost income to the state, especially considering the potential loss of the ability to host next year’s Super Bowl. The last time Arizona hosted a Super Bowl, they gained $500 million as a result.

    Follow the money.

    In another story, the Virginia House killed a bill that would require that the federal government provide info about any terror-related arrest, notifying the state within 24 hours, and also to notify the state before transferring the prisoner out of state. I view this as a more-than-reasonable request. However, the State Police noted that this might jeopardize federal funds that have run about $1/2 million per year.

    Follow the money. Principle is one thing, but money trumps everything.

    What a country.

    You don’t have to serve anyone you don’t like. You can pick and choose, based on the circumstances.

    I can, and have, invited certain patients to go to another practice in the future. This is totally legal.

    What is not, however, is for me to decide that entire groups/classes of people are not welcome, and that is what this law is about. The standard dodge is to say that it’s not OUR prejudices, but the prejudices that God tells us to have. If God says we should discriminate, we just have to, whether we personally feel differently or not. What a crock.

    On a similar note, try taking your child up to the top of a mountain, lay him down, and be ready to plunge a knife into him/her. If you get caught before you succeed, tell the judge that God told you to do it. Let me know how that turns out.

    You surely do make a lot of assumptions.

    It had nothing to do with not wanting to see the patients.

    If I see a condition that I’ve never seen before and am not comfortable treating, I make sure that the patient is referred to someone who can better treat the patient.

    It is not a question of preference. Some people just don’t follow advice and feel it necessary to blame me because they didn’t get the result they wanted. Some are rude and nasty to my staff. Some constantly make appointments they do not keep. Some continue to demand services despite the fact that they refuse to pay any fees.

    Most of these patients we put up with, regardless. In over 3 decades of practice, I have invited fewer than 5 people to find another practice where they would be happier. And two of them tearfully apologized for their behavior and asked me not to send them elsewhere, and they are still patients to this day.

    Does this help?

    Your business should go out of business if you discriminate against people. But, just in case it doesn’t, you must abide by the civil laws of society, not Sharia or bible law, and not discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation, skin color, or, hey, religious beliefs.
