Businesses should serve the public equally

Many a war has started over “deeply held beliefs’ and religious convictions.

This letter is in response to the letter, “‘Deeply held beliefs’” no excuse for discrimination,” published Aug. 8.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. If someone goes into a retail, or service-oriented, business then they should be ready to serve the public – all of the public, equally. You can’t refuse a black customer, or a handicapped customer, or a Latino customer. Why is ok to refuse a LGBTQ customer?

Many a war has started over “deeply held beliefs’ and religious convictions. But the consumer is the public. You want to bake cakes, or cut hair, fix cars or sell flowers: be prepared to do it for all of the public.
