Today, this is just the way it is:
- A gay business owner cannot refuse to hire a person on the basis of their religious belief.
- A religious business owner can legally refuse to hire a person because they are gay or lesbian.
- A gay property owner cannot refuse to rent to a family based on their religious beliefs.
- A religious property owner can refuse to rent to a family because they are lesbian or gay.
