NM Supreme Court Finds Refusing to Photograph Gay Wedding Illegal
Is approving a license the same as government sponsored or taxpayer funded?

I would have an issue with a government owned entity turning down people for being gay or straight or not being muslim enough, same with government contracted to provide a service, but merely purchasing a license or being approved by the city to operate is not the same thing.

If it is, "ladies night" at every bar is in clear violation because liquor licenses are controlled and issued by a government entity, and oh yeah...why doesn't the only Mexican restaurant in town NOT have a liquor license when all the white college kid bars do?

Seriously, how the hell did your brain conclude from me simply pointing out that they ARE licensed to me approving of licensing? I’ll help you out – you can get there from here. Rolleyes

It's not a personal insult if it's true. No matter what facts you are presented with to the contrary, anything that casts the current regime in any sort of a negative light you will somehow claim the opposite is true and then either try to spin or defend it. Whatever the party line is becomes your line. I know I'm not the only one to have commented on this devil's advocate game. It's like having our very own mini Jay Carney on the forum, it's amazing. Personally, I think you just take these positions because you just like to troll because whenever you get challenged on them you deflect or bring up things to support your position that you later claim not to endorse at all. Still, that is neither here nor there... The way you get from one to another is that you bring up a current system of regulation and licensing of taxis as if that would somehow legitimize the government forcing cab drivers into taking passengers they do not want to provide their service to when that system in itself that you point to to support the government flexing it's muscle on people is entirely illegitimate, corrupt and highly discriminatory to the point of having a government protected monopoly in most major cities. Supporting anti-discrimination by force of government by pointing to a system that quite obviously discriminates pretty much invalidates the premise.

LOL Oh great, yet another mind reader. So, by following your logic if I simply state that Obama is POTUS then I must also support him? That’s some real brilliant 1 + 1 = 3 rational thinking.

Just for the record, you are dead wrong. Of course if unsure you could have always asked me to expand on my position instead of just making shit up but what fun would that be. Even though you didn’t ask – I actually have almost zero thoughts about taxi licensing other than knowing that they are licensed.

About the general topic, I happen to think it’s wrong for a business owner to put up a No Blacks Allowed sign or for Muslim taxi driver to refuse to pick up gays, uncovered women or even Christians. These are MY views stated honestly. You may disagree but I will again refuse the insult that they are propaganda or that I posted my views only as a game of devil's advocate. If these radical view makes me a raging left wing liberal in your eyes then so be it just as long as we admit that the conclusion is in YOUR eyes only. That a few may agree with you does not add any creditable evidence that you are correct.

In an age where so many only visit news sites that parrot and reinforce their own views while dismissing other thoughts as somehow evil with bad intentions it must be very annoying to be accidently exposed to alternative views. But don’t worry, I promise that your head won’t explode and the sun will again set tonight.

I agree that it is wrong but it is their right.
