God and Us and Them and Us

At the end of this video he asks us to share this with our friends.

So...that's what I'm doing.

Here you go, friends.

This is a think piece for me. On the one hand, I don't love the idea that someone can reject another person on the basis of some smug, moral-superiority justification. On the other hand, if I ran a printing shop and some hate group came to do business with me, like that church that pickets funerals or a neo-Nazi group, I would be thrilled to tell them to take their business somewhere else. I'll admit, I'd be a little morally self-satisfied about it, too. I'm not perfect. And it doesn't even have to be that extreme of an example. If I'm a Democrat, would I refuse to print something for a Republic campaign, or vice versa? If I staunchly support one local high school's teams, would I refuse to print banners for their rivals? Someone smarter than me please chime in. Does a business have the right to refuse service for whatever reasons it chooses, or must a business owner serve all paying customers, leaving personal conscience aside and be ruled by solely by profit?

Very good points. I'm of a like mind.

Shouldn't the whole purpose of a t-shirt company be to print t-shirts and increase income? Personal beliefs should not have anything to do with business, but that's just the beliefs of a 19 year old boy.

I feel dilemna. Many of my frrinds are gay and some transgenderd. As a Libertarian, I defend to my death their right to be as they are without harassement. But, as a Libertarian I reject telling anyone else what to do with their busness. Offer a way to express freedom of all people and I will follow.
