Seeing gays refused service at shop - "What would you do?" (video)

It's interesting to see what would actually happen with bystanders present, if a gay couple were refused service at a shop because they're gay. This is a video from the US but it's certainly relevant to the "religious freedom" debate in Australia after the passing of marriage equality here.

Believe it or not, amendments were put up for debate in parliament (getting voted down) for just this sort of thing happening in the video to happen here in Australia. The Paterson alternative bill put up as a possible replacement to the bill that passed, was so bad that it allowed even a taxi driver to refuse to take you to or from a gay wedding.

As far as I know the findings of the gov's inquiry into religious freedom in Australia still haven't been released to the public.
