a) the refusal to run the ads seems obviously to be prima facia discrimination
b) any reprocusion on the bus company for discriminating is an unwarranted and tyranical act of the same sort as if the adverts were prohibited from display
(for the purposes of this I'll assume the bussing is a private endeavor)



I am often taken aback to learn that people who proclaim a belief in a person's rights to religious freedom, sexual freedom, et cet support actions like this.

The best I can make of it is that they only support thes freedoms if excercised in the correct manner: the implications and historical examples of such justifications never seem to reach them (and why should they, after all, they are the good people)
