What is your opinion? Should a business refuse service to a customer due to the customer's race, religion, political ideology, sexual orientation, etc?

What's the warrant for saying yes to this?

AlwaysRight, there isn't any. Most people who believe businesses should have the right to discriminate against people based on innate, and commonly targeted characteristics like race and sexual orientation are themselves bigoted in some way toward some group they wish to be targeted. That is why homophobic business owners tend to hide and justify their bigotry behind their "religious convictions".

Briantheliberal: The question isnt should they have the right its if should they do it.

Should they? No. Should/do they have the right to? Yes. If they want to, let them suffer economically. Being a jerk is not illegal. Briantheliberal: "Most people who believe businesses should have the right to discriminate against people based on innate, and commonly targeted characteristics like race and sexual orientation are themselves bigoted in some way toward some group they wish to be targeted". This is a comically ironic and bigoted statement. You are literally generalizing/demonizing a large group of people based solely on the fact that you don't agree with them. You are not the moral authority who gets to judge everyone's character, and you do not know most, if any, of the people you have no problem characterizing. Here is your typical leftist mindset: "I, as a liberal, am morally superior to all of the bigots out there who routinely victimize me with their privilege. Anyone who disagrees with me is wrong and should be punished by the government."
