  • Is this hypothetical? I would have a hard time with this. He is free, as a private business owner, to refuse service to anyone with no explanation needed. However, he needs to remember that, as a human being, he needs to show kindness. If he wants to help change the perception of the radical end of a religion that they are wrong, you don't treat random members of that religion as a radical unless you have indisputable proof they are. These are confusing times. Six medical workers giving aid in Afghanistan were killed today for "talking" about Christianity. How are the radicals helping with this type of event? Today's event fuels the fire to be overly cautious to the point of seeming mean.
