Following up on the preceding post, the harsh penalties imposed on those who deny goods or services to individuals and events as a matter of personal choice are not motivated by a desire to make the product or service available to the refused potential customer. In America, alternate suppliers always are available to provide the desired product or service.
Instead, the penalties are draconian as a control measure. They are to punish anyone who refuses to toe the current politically correct line . . . anyone who insists on exercising his or her rights as a free individual by refusing to meekly submit to the control of society's self righteous elitist overlords.
Freedom might be infectious. It therefore cannot be tolerated and must be crushed.
