I, like Ann and Thoa, find myself disturbed by your decision to deny
business services to particular people.  I do not see these as business
decisions on your part, but as moral ones - since your business may actually
be more profitable if you did take on such clients.  I personally feel that
businesses should not discriminate - we are already privy of how damaging
that can be.  As T/theosophists, we should know, perhaps better than others,
how we must avoid falling into the public practice of sifting out those
people we feel are worthy of our help/service - we have enough trouble
dealing with it in our private lives.

Specifically, I am curious, Doss, on why you don't offer your services to
law enforcement.  I wonder what moral objections one could have there.
Would you not call the police if you found yourself a victim of a crime?
Also, members of the military seem deserving of tax service - why do you
choose not to offer services to them?

As far as I'm concerned, prostitutes need all the help they can get.
Prostitution should be legalized - BUT, pardon me, that's another argument
