His sticker supporting Trump troubled me ( if the sticker read down with President Trump I bet it would not trouble your friends on the left )

Dear Amy: We would like your insight into a moral dilemma that we recently faced. We are a progressive, Democratic household.

Being in need of the services of a contractor, we called to obtain advice and to get an estimate from a contractor who we have been doing business with for years (he is locally regarded as the best and most knowledgeable in his field).

When he arrived for his consultation the other day, we noticed that his work truck had a bumper sticker in support of the current president.

We did not say anything, but were disappointed to learn of his political affiliation. We spent the next few days trying to decide if we should use the contractor’s services or take our business elsewhere (there are few, if any, alternatives in the area).

We ultimately decided to use his services, but we held our nose while signing the contract.

Is it wrong to apply a political litmus test?

    Ah, but could you imagine the national uproar if the contractor had turned down the job because he saw an Obama or Hillary bumper-sticker on their car?
