    blacks because in your most-deeply-held religion blacks carry the "mark of Cain" (or whatever other nonsense) and should be shunned, that would be OK? I thought this was settled nearly 50 years ago. Do we have to keep fighting the same battle over and over again? If you are in a business that serves the public, then serve the damn public, or get out of that damn business!

    The same applies to those (thankfully few) pharmacists working in public pharmacies who refuse to sell legal drugs and prescriptions to those who offend their oh-so-delicate personal religious beliefs. Or if the use of alcohol offends your personal or religious beliefs, you shouldn't look for a job in a liquor store--unless you can refrain from imposing your personal religious beliefs on others while there, then go for it.

    But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, ... there are few die well that die in a battle; ... Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; — Shakespeare, ‘Henry V’
