I think the problem here is not that this guy has the right to choose how to run his business and will reap the results. The problem is that the Supreme Court set a precedence for future actions in the country. So now, any business has the right to do the same with their services. Suddenly, it becomes trendy to refuse services to a minority. They still make money, even moreso because they were in the news and have the backing of those also against the minority. Then those ideas start to strengthen as the majority cannot fully relate to the minority and superiority is a very addictive quality to humans. If you cannot be a success in life, at least you can be better than this one group of people.
These are the seeds that can blossom into a widespread and common distaste for that particular minority which can eventually escalate to mass actions such as camps or forced migration. Not long and we have a culture obsessed with a task that doesn't benefit anyone and anything but their own egos.
It shouldn't be up to companies and citizens to protect the rights of minorities and stand up for them. It should be the job of the nation's leadership to protect every citizen.
