Is the concept of a "Christian Business" morally defendable? And is it illegal?

I discovered a little while ago that there is such a thing as a "Christian business".As I understand the concept, it is a business that, as part of its operating precepts (among other things) acts to either preferentially or exclusively deal with other "Christian businesses" and to employ Christian staff.I realised today just how morally repugnant I find this concept.

Hi Adam,

Good luck with the planning the group is doing, let me know if you need help!

Hey Adam! Welcome to Atheist Nexus! I'm Kris from up on the Blackall Range. I'd like to invite you to join our Aussie, Kiwi and South Pacific Atheists group.

I'd also like to let you know that a group of us Sunshine Coast atheists meet each month for dinner at the Reef Hotel, Noosa. Our next dinner is at 6.30pm on Wednesday, 12 August. It's very informal, and a lot of fun.

If you're interested, you can contact me here or at avalonbythelake at yahoo dot com dot au

I hope you enjoy the site!
