FRC: Basic nondiscrimination = 'war to impose immorality'

by Jeremy Hooper

A baker runs a business and purports to sell wedding cakes? Then he must follow proper nondiscrimination policy and sell those cakes to all customers, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, national origin, etc.

But when some of those customers who fall under (at least) one of those classifications seeks fair and proper business practice, it constitutes a "war to impose immorality." Thus goes the reliably skewed and hostile thinking of one of D.C's most anti-gay organizations:

I also "love" how these folks think that mentioning the fact that Colorado doesn't have marriage equality helps their argument. No—it helps ours! That point proves that these laws do not hinge on marriage equality, like the fear-mongers always claim at election time. The point shows that this is a matter of basic business nondiscrimination.

FRC dislikes developments like this one because FRC wants the "right" to discriminate against us. Period. End of sentence. Full stop.
