So some states are passing, “religious freedoms” bills designed to allow bible thumpers the right to deny some services to you and this has you all up in arms, right? Well, stop being an asshole and accept the fact that you don’t have the right to force others to serve you. Even more mad now, are you? Well, read on.
First, some background info on me; I’m straight and an Atheist. I don’t care if you like men, women or Chihuahuas. I’ll serve a person if they’re wearing a cross, a rainbow shit or a <insert politician I hate> button as long as your money is green.
I’m in business to make money and I don’t give a fuck about your personal beliefs or lifestyle when it comes to you handing me money. Now obviously, the people who wanted these laws passed don’t feel the same way as me but why do you think they should be required to take your money? Do you think if they’re forced to accept you that we’ll all start holding hands and singing Kumbaya together? Not likely.
Think it’s an injustice? It’s not; it’s allowing people to be themselves. Your desire to force them to serve you is akin to someone forcing you to do something you’re against. Look, you want to be mad, great, but stop trying to fight this with anything other than your wallet. Don’t patronize the places that don’t want to serve you; they don’t get your money and you don’t have to deal with them. Also, if they don’t have to serve you because of their beliefs, that means you don’t have to serve them if you don’t like their beliefs. You’re gay and you have a private business? Don’t serve Christians….or Trump supporters.
