The interesting thing about those cases is that they eventually decided not on the homeless claim but on a somewhat sketchy "dress code" claim.

As long as they aren't discrimintating based on race, religion, gender etc it's OK.

Here's what I don't get, if I go a Baker who says "we don't serve your kind"; why would I want to force him to sell to me? Why sue? Why not take my business elsewhere and let "my kind" know that this business isn't friendly to us. Let those that are sympatheic to "my kind" know as well. Don't sue, boycott...and let others know.

Of course maybe it's because I'm from an area with a large population. If someone doesn't want my business, I have so many choices it doesn't matter. And the business that discriminates probably won't last long once word gets out.

But do you really want to give your money to someone like that? Are you suing to force your business on them or to punish them for having a belief that you disagree with? Seems like people are suing to punish someone for their views.
