“It’s not about discriminating against gay customers, it’s about protecting religious liberty!”
Ok, so give me an example of what kind of scenario this law is supposed to help in.
“Well, maybe a florist doesn’t want to provide flowers for a gay wedding.”
So, the scenario in which this law, which totally isn’t about discrimination, is supposed to help in is a scenario where someone wants to turn away a gay customer?
“No! The florist just doesn’t want to participate in something that’s against their religion!”
So the scenario isn’t about discrimination or turning away gay customers, it’s about not having to participate in commerce with gay people?
“No! It’s about not having to participate in gay weddings!”
But the only way they’re connected to the wedding at all is by selling things to the gay people having a wedding.
“Exactly, and they don’t want to do that!”
So, they don’t want to do commerce with gay people that are having weddings and want to be able to turn them away?
“Dammit man, it’s like you’re not even listening to me!”
