Opens up a whole network of opportunity for LGBT bridal gear businesses to open up and cash in...in fact, it sounds like they’re providing a big stimulus to LGBT small business and employment. Freedom’s a wonderful thing, if you don’t like the way somebody does business, why sue them if you know how to do it better? GO do it better. You’ll succeed or you won’t, if you do, others are likely to adopt your point of view. But if it’s a fail, dictating fail by fiat because your feelings got a booboo is chopping off your head to cure a headache.

I’m gettin’ kinda libertarian on a lot of this stuff.

Yeah, and how's that working out for you? Is the country getting more or less freedom as liberal societal norms take over the culture?

Look, the law is coded morality. You can either embrace the traditional conservative moral law codified which will admittedly oppress certain groups preferred behavior or norms.

Or you can embrace the liberal morality codified which will oppress everybody eventually.

There'll be no libertarian compromise. It's never existed and it never will. It's not compatible with human nature any more than the communists (whose goal was anarcho-communal living and called themselves libertarians first).

Someone's going to get a hold of the levers of power in a society, so who do you want and where do you want that power directed?
