As an Arizona business owner, I can not even fathom not working with anyone based on their gender, sexual orientation, race, class, age, religion or otherwise. I recognize that other business owners may feel differently. How unfortunate for them as any discrimination means missing out on experiencing the richness that is all of humankind. Together we can all work every day to create a landscape where no one ever has to experience such hate.
This is an issue not of who to serve or not serve, this is about dignity. As the Supreme Court decides if the homophobic cake maker in Colorado has a right to discriminate we should all take a look at our own practices and behaviors. We can all do better, speak up more and support those with fewer rights then we have ourselves.
