But yet the gay community can use their sexual preference as a crutch to violate others rights, including their religious rights and youre ok with that.........

I just want to say thank you for a quality discussion, and for taking my words in the spirit intended, without assigning false motives and twisted meanings. I've avoided these threads for the most part, because I always feel like the outlier -- on both sides! I'm never sure how to say what I want to say. This is great. Thank you!

So it's not too far a stretch to quote murder as being one of the things that could become protected under Religious Freedom laws.
It's not the hypocrisy that's the issue, it's the legality that's the problem. Laws such as these, create the environment where discrimination can and will occur.
I want doctors to provide access to treatment and services, and not deny them based on BS moral authority grounds.
Also, I'm a tax payer. Every business receives benefits from the government, those directly translate into the spending of my tax dollars for those programs. You receive any kind of government benefit, you have the complete and utter obligation to serve any and all tax payers.
What if only one such business exists within a reasonable distance?

So you're saying that if a pizza restaurant is asked to cater a wedding, and the owner is a devout Christian, he/she has to interview the couple to find out all these things before they decide to cater it? LOL - I think a Roman Catholic should just stick to working in a church, because they won't have ANY business if they have to be that picky with the general public.
Any non-Roman Catholic Christians willing to answer my questions?
