    Actually no, this is the point. The Civil Rights Act is perfectly clear in providing “injunctive relief against discrimination in public accommodations”.

    As I said, I'm not an Aristotelian. Just as I believe words have no meaning that is independent of usage, I don't believe rights have any existence independently of human cognition.

    So human rights are relative?
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Historically they have been relative and internally inconsistent. Once upon a time they allowed for slavery, stoning of immoral women, polygamy and racism etc etc. Not any more...at least in the developed countries.
