Basil Duke: “By the rationale of this particular ruling, would not the owner of a soul food restaurant be legally obligated to cater a wedding of two klan members?”
Yes, they would be forced to do business with people who held views the owner felt were offensive. The judge said people would be hurt if a business turned them away. If that’s the criteria, that someone cannot be hurt or saddened, then what about the right of the black business owner in your example to not be saddened? What if the klan couple want white supremacist decorations at said wedding? Wouldn’t the black soul food caterer be hurt by that?
