I think you're HUGELY off there. There's a vocal MINORITY.


That think it's a SIN? They may be OK with gay people getting married and having equal rights, but they think homosexuality is a sin and God will handle it. Yes, a vocal minority is fighting the legalization of gay marriage, but most religious people still see being gay as a sin against God.


And yet their savior said nothing about being gay. He DID say to love each other though(paraphrasing obviously). So how can they and still follow the tenets of Christ? I see no "gay sin" in any of his teachings.

You're a doctor...
You took an oath...
You have a gay patient...
They need a prostate examination...


What do you do?

Go...!


Not sure I can answer that without getting in trouble with the mods. It's a good thing I'm not a doctor either. You are probably all relieved to hear that.

Lol. Such a defensive and ridiculous statement. They are the most protected group in America for all of American history including now.

I actually don't accept baked goods from religious people because I read it on a snapple cap.

I think you should add "wealthy" in there too. Wealthy, White, Males are a protected class. I only say this because I'm a White Male and nobody gives a sh*t about me, so there must be more to the equation.

I wish people would just "let it go".

Allow people to live as they wish, if they aren't violating anyone else's rights.

Simple.


No doubt.

After years of screaming their bedrooms is no ones else's business.

They turn around and MAKE it everyone's business.



How do you figure that? The main things are just equal rights that everyone else has. That's what all the fuss is about. Equal rights.

Not so much on the side of the cake bakers...

Photographers however I do feel should have a choice...

Seems an abuse of rights forcing people to work where they don't want to...

What if someone asked a photographer to shoot a porno and they found it immoral?
They shouldn't have to...
I see it the same as a gay wedding...


But cake baking?
You haven't got to be there...
& no one is asking for a penis on the cake, just two Iced men on regular tiered cake...
That's hardly the same thing!

Doesn't add up. The guys who work for the cities I'm sure don't WANT to go into the sewers but it's part of the job and they have to shut it and deal.

Nah I'll just go buy some devil's food cake from a gay baker.

They tend to be better cooks anyways.

You can say as a photographer that you won't shoot ANY porn - gay or straight - that's not discriminatory. But to say that you will shoot weddings, but not gay weddings - that IS discriminatory. I've heard of Christian photographers shooting Muslim weddings, Jewish weddings, etc.

If you don't want to shoot gay weddings, then it would be better if you decline to shoot ALL weddings - then you are not being discriminatory.

You should have filed the complaint.


My experience at the time told me it was a lost cause. Much like trying to preserve traditional marriage appears to be a lost cause. Not because the cause is not righteous but because the world is not.


How is traditional marriage not being preserved? Aren't they still happening? Is there some law that says once gay marriages happen there can't be any more straight marriages? There are all kinds of non-traditional marriages out there - none of them affect my "traditional" marriage in the least.

So I think you getting passed on a job because a qualified women or minority showed up is not as bad as being fired from your job for being gay.

Also bring passed on a job for not being black or a woman or gay is not the same as the discrimination employed against all groups. This discrimination results in rape, incarceration, and violence against minorities.

How about studies saying that just having a black sounding name on an identical resume to one with a white name mean you are less likely to get the job?

www.nber.org...

Affirmative action policies are an attempt to fix this issue. Affirmative action would not exist if people like you could learn not to be bigoted.

Talk about the plight of white heterosexual makes when you get beaten up by a gay guy for no reason other than being straight.

You truly have mastered cognitive dissonance sir. Want a medal?
