    I mean that you've admitted my reasoning is valid. You shouldn't demand that I a post a revision of the chain with another line just to make you comfortable with process. Overly obsessive criticism of process and details is pedantry and a debating fallacy. It is also just poor form.

    Moving on to the issue of discrimination based on political ideology or affiliation:

    Would it be immoral if, at a business I own, I turn away anyone who walks in wearing anything suggestive of affiliation with or support for the Democrat party or any Democrat candidate, or arrives in a car with a bumper sticker suggesting the same? (Stating that would be a poor business practice is a red herring.)

    Would that type of business practice, at face value, be moral, immoral or neutral?

    Any one?

    I'd say yes, the practice would be immoral discrimination that infringes on the right of people to pursue happiness. Political/social beliefs are too important for a business owner to expect a change in the customer or applicant to receive service or employment. Therefore, the government should make political ideology or affiliation a protected class.
