    Being a gay (single)man I don't understand why people gay or straight feel the need to push an issue to the extreme of a lawsuit. If I were to come across a vendor who preferred not service my needs I would simply take my business to someone who wanted the money. No matter the issue, no matter gay or straight there are common sense lines.

    This is just a prejudiced person hiding behind supposed Christian convictions.
