Well, for one, it could get you or your spouse banned from public if you dare to express opposition to it.
Spot the rich, creamy, ironic hypocrisy here:
The “tolerant” same-sex marriage left has struck again – this time, at the popular hangout The Grove, in Los Angeles. The owner of The Grove, Rick Caruso, tweeted that iconic boxing great and Philippines Congressman Manny Pacquiao would not be allowed “on the premises” thanks to Pacquiao’s outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage. “Boxer Manny Pacquiao is not welcome @TheGroveLA,” he tweeted. “@TheGroveLA is a gathering place for all Angelenos, not a place for intolerance.” Pacquiao was supposed to do an interview today with “Extra” at The Grove.
Although I think that property owners have a right to control the property they own, that option has been foreclosed by wiser heads that mine. California Civil Code Section 51et. seq. - the Unruh Act - prohibits discrimination by business establishments based on "personal characteristics," including personal beliefs. Semler v. General Electric Capital Corp., 196 Cal. App. 4th 1380, 1394 (Cal. App. 2d Dist. 2011)("In Koebke, the court commented that the personal characteristics enumerated in the Act “represent traits, conditions, decisions, or choices fundamental to a person's identity, beliefs and self-definition.” (Koebke, at pp. 842–843, italics added.)
It seems that Pacquiao may have a claim for discrimination against the Grove.
