There's a fine line here - refusing service at a restaurant to a gay couple is not okay. Requesting a different seat on an airplane because you're forbidden to touch women you're not related to should be accommodated.

This has so many twist and turns to it. There are limits I'm assuming. But any business that feels uncomfortable with what's going on, should be able to deny service.

yes, for businesses that established that they have religious beliefs that they uphold, even during business operations. But, they should not be required to post a sign with their beliefs.

In cases of services where a essential service is being offered, such as access to groceries, medicine, health care, and the like, there should not be a license for discrimination. However, in the case of artisans, florists, cake makers, and other non-essential services, there is more reasonable room for flexibility about their right to deny service for requests which violate thier personal beliefs and convictions.

I fell as though this question could be tackled in many different ways. I feel that for some religions it would be safer for the owner, if they would like to, remove someone from a particular relgion from their establishment. Like Judaism, and Islamic beliefs.

This should all be based on a respect system, not because your racist but because the person disrespected you and your store.

@9XNVV6BReform from Nebraska answered…8mos

Yes, only to hecklers (people who are always asking to lower to their asking that is always way under the items true worth) if they keep pressing enough, hecklers are downright pathetic.

@9XM9YHRRepublican from Missouri answered…9mos

Business owners shouldn´t be allowed to deny service to anyone, whether they have different beliefs or not. However, if the customer causes a scene by projecting their beliefs loudly and impolitely, then the owner has the right to deny them service.
