Discriminating behaviour

I posted the following reply to one of Jeff's postings over on SNP Tactical Voting:

There should be a crucial difference between being a Christian owner of a hotel and a Christian owner of a B&B that is effectively your own home.

Utterly wrong. The keyword is not home but property.

In a civilised society, owners of property have the absolute right to determine how their property is used. The only exception is when such use involves the initiation of physical violence against another person or his property. There is no right not to be offended. And this rule applies to discrimination against blacks, Irish, Scots, or even against people called Jeff or David.

See here.

It shouldn't need to be pointed out that none of the above means that I'm in favour of such discriminations. But I totally support the right to carry them out. And of course the right of those who disapprove to carry out retaliatory discriminations.

I do countenance the right to discriminate under the concept of freedom of association. Equally I support the right of people to counter-discriminate.

As a fanatical Libertarian, DF, you should be able to countenance discrimination in the name of what the US Constitution calls "Freedom of Association".
