    I do not care how the gay couple would feel, there are lots of different businesses specialising in cakes, and there is plenty of accommodation available, the gay couple could use another business. By allowing discrimination of who businesses sell products are sold to, businesses are happy because their beliefs are not outlawed, and the gay couple can be happy because there will be other businesses willing to serve the gay couple. It is in the interests of a business to not discriminate because discrimination being publicised could lead to a boycott which will cost business, but if a company wants to discriminate that is acceptable.
    Nigel Farage MEP everybody.

    You have failed to provide justification for why the feelings of a minority group of individuals should come above the feeling, and beliefs of business owners.

    This is a way to enforce bathroom bills while also trying to appear slightly progressive.

    Care to tell us why we need to care about how everybody would feel and make sure nobody is annoyed by something? If you want to do that then you will get absolutely nowhere because you are wanting an impossibility.

    Ah I forgot, progressive social policy is a draconian thing! We should oppress all gays, Jews and blacks!

    In this country, everyone is equal. If businesses find it so hard to serve gay people, they can swallow their pride or close down. You have failed to provide justification why you do not believe those of minority groups are equal to businesses?

    Strip some of the bits of the bill out, reword some others, and it's certainly an Aye, as it is an abstention,

    If I have a problem with SJWs, that doesn't mean I can't say they're incoming in this thread, and still disagree with the Bill.

    Its impossible to please everyone, but more people would be hurt by this bill, then would be pleased by it.

    or to allow the owners of a bed and breakfast to refuse to rent a room to a gay couple. If I was in the position of owning one of those companies I would not discriminate, however, I believe business owners should have complete freedom over who products, or services are sold to.
    Why should you be allowed to discriminate based on sexual orientation? Will your next bill allow companies to discriminate based on race?

    You're saying that the majority are affected by the bill?
