Fox Host Abruptly Ends Interview After Guest Delivers Amazing Gay Rights Defense

Bernard Goldberg, an accomplished and award-winning journalist and writer, eviscerated Fox News host Shannon Bream, who attempted to defend the discriminatory Arizona anti-gay bill last week.

Goldberg appeared on Fox News to discuss Jan Brewer’s veto of the controversial Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses and individuals to discriminate against gays and lesbians if it burdened their religious beliefs.

Goldberg began by saying, “I understand the concern of social conservatives, religious people, I understand that.” Then he continued, “But if you open a shop on Main Street, open to the general public, then you really have to serve the general public and you can’t say well I’m not going to serve these people, but I will serve those people.”

Bream fired back:

Why not?! Why not?! I mean, this is America. We all have freedoms. I mean, why would you want to do business with somebody, no matter what your personal issue was that they had with you, why would you want to force them to do business with you? Why not just go down the street and say, ‘I’m going to spend my money to somebody who supports me and is kind to me and wants to help me and provide these services for me.’

Goldberg replied by changing the scenario to a devout Muslim restaurant owner, rather than a Christian, who denied service to a woman entering his establishment saying, “”Whoa, whoa, whoa. You can’t come into this restaurant. You need to be here with a man. Those are my deeply held religious beliefs. OK?”

Bream responded by using the argument, ‘If you don’t like the way a business treats you, go somewhere else. If a restaurant doesn’t want to serve you based on your sexual preference, go somewhere else.’

And that’s when Goldberg completely destroyed Bream’s argument:

And by the way . . . that’s up to you to not want to eat there, but you know, would you have made this argument in 1960 in Greensboro, North Carolina, when four black college students went to Woolworth and sat at the lunch counter where they were not wanted and said, ‘I want lunch.’ They are American heroes, because they didn’t get up and say, ‘I’m not wanted here. I’ll go someplace else.’
