While the constitution protects the rights of individuals to hate anyone they choose, there is no constitutional right to discriminate. Those withholding public accommodations based on sexual orientation — or any other protected category — can hardly be described as “innocent.”
I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
