Public doesn't agree with Supreme Court on gays and business choices

The Hill - 72 percent of Americans said they believe business owners should not have the right on religious grounds to deny serving people based on their sexual orientation. Fourteen percent of respondents said they believe business owners do have the right, while 9 percent said they have the right “only in certain circumstances." Six percent of people said they do not know.

The same survey reported that the number of people who support same-sex marriage has increased. Fifty-three percent of respondents said gay individuals should be allowed to marry legally and enjoy all the same rights as a marriage between a man and a woman. This represents an 11 percent increase from a survey conducted in 2013.

I think we need to have a law that makes religious display in public a misdemeanor similar to peeing in public.

Peeing, unlike religion, is an entirely natural function that nobody can avoid doing pretty regularly. But no one apart from very small children is allowed to do it in public.

So someone who is seen wearing a kippe, crucifix, or hijab, or announces that they won't dispense a morning-after pill or rent to a non-het couple because of religion should be fined, say, $50 the first time, $100 the second, $500 the third, with $500 and 30 days in the kerker the fourth, and if they still hadn't got the memo, commitment to a locked ward for 90 days while psychologists evaluate them for their potential danger to the public.

Few would ever pay more than 3 fines.
