Suppose a Christian businessman refuses service to a homosexual.

This Christian is an unenlightened, uncouth, boorish bigot, says the liberal.

Suppose now a homosexual businessman refuses service to a Christian.

The homosexual is a filthy degenerate who rejects both true morals and true faith, says the conservative.

A libertarian does not participate in this shouting match. All he says is that both acts of “discrimination” are lawful, and it would be unjust for the government to seek to prevent them by force.

That’s all I can assert qua libertarian, and on a personal note, that’s all I’m willing to assert qua human being. I’m just not interested in culture wars.

I’ve got stuff going on in my life, interesting stuff that consumes my attention. I’m not wasting my time playing either side of the fence.
