There's a fine line here - refusing service at a restaurant to a gay couple is not okay. Requesting a different seat on an airplane because you're forbidden to touch women you're not related to should be accommodated.

Business owners shouldn´t be allowed to deny service to anyone, whether they have different beliefs or not. However, if the customer causes a scene by projecting their beliefs loudly and impolitely, then the owner has the right to deny them service.

This is way too broad a question to require a yes or no answer. The nuances of the Baker refused to bake a wedding for a gay couple is not really covered by this question.

@9XC3YC4Independent from Illinois answered…2wks

Yes if it requires them to go against their stated belief but is also not illegal (as in racial discrimination)

@9LPGQK3Libertarian from Colorado answered…12mos

Yes, but only if they deny the service to all people equally rather than deny based on customer identity.

@9L94F3NPeace and Freedomfrom Virgin Islands  answered…12mos

No, religious beliefs have nnothing to do with the treatmet of a customer

@9L87YNNDemocrat from Colorado answered…12mos

Yes, but not if the business receives federal or state funding and the business owner's refusal conflicts with federal or state law.

@9L68XQ8Independent from Kansas answered…12mos

Yes, the business has the right to serve who they want, but I do not agree with not serving people who don't share beliefs.

Yes as long as what is denied and or approved is consistent for all requests. As the loss of customers is potentially harmful to the business it should be their decision was to what is denied.

@9KXD6BHDemocrat from Virginia answered…12mos

If the beliefs of the customer are openly hateful or have been proven to still be openly hateful then they should be able to get denied imo.

@9KXBYTLPeace and Freedom from Nebraska answered…12mos

Yes religion is very important to some people but there should not be descrimination either.

@9KWHLZ5Republican from Florida answered…12mos

@9KQRNQZTranshumanist from Kentucky answered…12mos

Yes as long as the reason they are denying service has to do with what the person is requesting rather than the persons sex/race/sexual orientation, etc.

@9KNBTCHVeteran from Illinois answered…12mos

Yes, because the business owners have rights too! Consumers can find a business holding same beliefs so no one’s rights are compromised

@9KMX5RBGreen from California answered…12mos

Yes, as long as there are alternative choices to the business in question.

@9KMKPWKTranshumanist from Ohio answered…12mos

@9KM749JPeace and Freedom from Texas answered…12mos

depends; i would like more information and other views before i answer

@9KJJ4JBWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…12mos

Yes, but only if its privately owned business and not a large corporation.

@9KJFVTGConstitution from Indiana answered…12mos

Only if it can be proven that the service required is religious or anti-religious in nature, and/or that no other business within a one hour drive of the customer's residence can provide a similar service at similar cost.

@Stephanie-LeighWomen’s Equality from Idaho answered…12mos

Yes, but only if there are other equal services available in the area.

@9K9ZXJMTranshumanist from Texas answered…12mos

This question is too broad. I don't think anyone should be able to be denied service at a restaurant for example. But I don't think a marriage therapist should be forced to give counseling to a gay couple 50 marriage is something that they don't support.

@9K9L2Z7Socialist from Washington answered…12mos

Yes, but only small businesses, and only if the services are provided elsewhere nearby.

@9K94GZGVeteran from New Hampshire answered…12mos

Yea, Private business should be able to deny for any reason, the customer should shop at company that accepts them not force a company to pretend

@9K8ZPT5Women’s Equality from Maryland answered…12mos

A private business that has no government funding should be able to run it as they see fit

@9K6B5JWVeteran from California answered…1yr

Yes but the should post a sign summarizing their beliefs and what they refuse.

 @9K2NZQMLibertarian answered…1yr

No if it from local, state or federal employees(elected or not) or agency.

@9JYPFQVDemocrat from Massachusetts answered…1yr

I think it depends. If the owner's belief is being discriminatory, then the customer should still be able to receive service. Also, if their refusal puts someone in danger, then they shouldn't deny to provide service. However, if the customer is being rude and disrespectful towards their religion, then I can see why they would be turned away.

@9JXYV86Women’s Equality from Illinois answered…1yr

they should only deny if they if it is not in there culture they should not deny if it is in there culture or religion or if it is a holiday that they celebrate.

@9JWP64SDemocrat from North Carolina answered…1yr

Only if it is a privately owned business and the owner of the store must explicitly state what their religious beliefs will extend to

@Katja-JeschkePeace and Freedom from California answered…1yr

Yes only if the request, not the person, directly conflicts the owners morals and is not based off of discrimination against lgbtq, minorities, or any other person the can’t change what they are.

@9JMCB6NTranshumanist from Georgia answered…1yr

Yes, so long as they are not affiliated with the government

@9JHLBG8Peace and Freedom from Maryland answered…1yr

If it’s because a customer is gay, no. But if a customer is a bigot, then yes

I have absolutely no idea. I have completely mixed feelings about this.

Yes, for small business only. Owners should understand the risk of losing business due to beliefs

@9J997J7Socialist from Oregon answered…1yr

No, refusing to serve costumers and employees based on religion is immoral and illegal

@9JBKWWDRepublican from Utah answered…1yr

No, unless they register their business with a government database explaining the denial, and post a sign stating their beliefs and what they refuse

@9J6ZTXFGreen from Texas answered…1yr

Private businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone. Public businesses should treat everyone equally
