Comment For those wanting a 'free market' solution.. (Score 4, Interesting) 1168

A free market solution never worked in the Jim Crow south and it wont work now. Sure if you live in a big city or town, if one shop refuses to serve you, you can go to another, but what happens to a person who is in the minority who lives or visits a small town that is predominantly made up of religious bigots? There may be one gas station, one food market, one diner? Should the minority have to leave town to protect the rights of the bigoted religious majority?

Also, will the religious rights head explode when Muslims try to use their faith in the same way the Christians are trying too?

CurrentC wants a link right into your checking account. Sounds real safe. What happens when there is an issue? How long does it take to fixed botched transactions? What liability is there? How happy are the banks going to be working with them?

I'll stick to Apple and Google's model.

He's dead, Jim.
