    Would you really be able to do this in a private business?

    Refuse someone service because of their sexual orientation, religion or political affiliations and beliefs? Like for example if you owned a bed and breakfast and a same sex couple came in could you ask them to leave/refer them to another establishment because their union violates your religious beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman?

    not just private but a public company may discriminate against anyone they want. That is the beauty of business. 99% won't care who shops with them and 1% will. LET anyone sue any business for discrimination. That would be great. Government can't discriminate but individual businesses can. Why not? The interesting this is when one creates a rental situation for houses and apts, the law does intervene. AZ law: The following are generally NOT PROTECTED areas from discrimination under Arizona State Law: Personal Appearance Sexual Orientation---------= gays Political Affiliation Education/training (lack of) Short-term disabilities or injuries Personality Conflicts ================== for further clarification-- ladies must be served, and men must be served a males only place must service ladies--- a female hotel must permit a male that is under sex read this now: Public Accomodation Discrimination The following categories are protected: Race Color National Origin/Ancestry Sex Religion/Creed Physical/Mental disability Retaliation Examples of public accommodation allegations: Failure to allow entrance Inability to enter due to barriers Treated differently in places of public accommodation ---sex = females or males sexual orientation is when one sex sleeps with members of its own sex. that can be discriminated against if i owned a hotel i would not permit open gays,
