And the clerk in KY who decided it was against her religious views to sign marriage applications for homosexuals?
If she can not do her job because of her religious beliefs then she needs to find another job.
While on the subject. .....I sure wish gay couples would hire the bakeries standing in line to make their wedding cake instead of forcing their beliefs on the baker that would prefer not to.(I hope this is not considered a double post. I'm on my phone still until it's not so painful to sit at the computer ).
There is a federal law about renting discriminationYou can reject someone with a bad rental, employment issues, bad credit record, a history of not taking care of property.You cannot discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability (physical or mental), or family status.
Well, I disagree with that. If I am in business for myself and not receiving any benefits or supplements from government funding, be it local, state or federal, I should get to serve or not serve whomever I please. It's called private enterprise for a reason. If I own property, I should be free to rent to anyone I want and to not rent to anyone I don't want. As long as I am not getting anything from the government... tax breaks, whatever... I should be able to hire anyone I want and not be obliged to have a certain percentage of handicapped, minority, catholic/baptist/jewish/etc employees. As long as the I am not receiving funding from some government source, I should be able to set my pay scale as I choose.
You're right. You... and I... didn't make the laws. But we have to abide by them anyway, even if our religions tell us something else.
