So, you want the right to be able to discriminate again blondes?

Think beyond trying to win the argument. Arbitrary discrimination is bad social policy for a society. You want businesses to be open to everyone and only through specific action can people be refused service. To argue otherwise is to invite bedlam.

I'm of the opinion that churches are likely to be self correcting. Ultimately they are businesses in spite of tax exempt status. The churches do receive money for marrying people, and outside of rural towns, some of them will perform services and pick up membership in this way.
