Walmart & Dickís

If these stores can choose who can buy what from them, then so should Christian bakers , florists, or photographers.
Thanks from Jimmyb, Sabcat and Neil

It is the same exact case being used against them as the gay baker. I even believe that it will be the same district court.

Nonsensical analogy. Dicks and Wal Mart are not selling them to anyone. They are not denying a specific group based on personal behavior. You are trying too hard......LOL

I've always held the position that when a vendor offers a good or service, puts ads out there, signs on their stores saying "we sell X", "Yes, we're open!", etc. they cannot then arbitrarily refuse to serve their customers; that includes age discrimination.

However, I do agree that it would at least be consistent that if one business can arbitrarily refuse to serve customers, then all business should also be able to arbitrarily refuse to serve customers.

You're strawmanning - OP made no mention of anything being based on behavior. In either case it's a matter of discrimination.

No, he was talking about the comparison the other guys were making. The posts he was referring to are right there. See for yourself.........

Nonsense. This is being compared to a baker that would not sell a cake to a gay couple. If the baker decided not to sell cake to anyone, that would be his right. Stores that have decided to quit selling cigarettes to anyone are not discriminating. I repeat, the analogy sucks.

It is the same exact law suit. In Oregon, businesses cannot discriminate against a specific class of people because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status or age.
