28. Wow. I was intending the question as a reality check

I hope you merely forgot the sarcasm tags.

I never dreamed there would be a member of DU who would actually say out loud that they believed an individual with CP should be excluded because they made others uncomfortable.

You do know that kind of discrimination is not only (at least from my perspective) morally reprehensible, but also illegal, right?

By your reasoning, a restaurant in a racist area should be able exclude blacks (equally illegal) to avoid losing dozens of customers who might not return. It is really no different. Both are illegal (one under the Civil Rights Act and one under the Americans with Disabilities Act). Both practices (by entities discriminating) operate on the principle that as a private entity the restaurant should be entitled to exclude people who are different to make their customers more comfortable.
