I love it when you lot whine about how business is all only about money and greed, but when business owners actually do try to run their businesses according to their personal values ... it's bad because those values contradict your own. At that point, their businesses should be just about the money and greed.
If I want to be in a business that provides a service to weddings and there comes a "wedding" that I am asked to participate in that my personal value/belief system says is a mockery of God and what he has decreed, then I must sell out my values for money and greed? I hope those 30 pieces of silver are worth it ...

WTF??? What does that have to do with this topic???
Did I miss something???? What the hell is a "nefarious performance arts degree" anyway??? How does nefarious even fit within that statement???
What exactly am I missing that makes any of that make sense???

Yes, and it's happening an alarming frequency! *sarcasm*
These are solitary and isolated examples you mention...these are not the norm, no matter how much you wish to portray them as.

"where the kids will grow up in worse conditions than today for single parents"
There is absolutely no scientific evidence which even would hint at your opinion being true.
In fact, Boston University -- and other Ivy League schools -- have spent countless hours researching this topic and conclusively found the opposite to be true -- children raised in gay households are no better (or worse) off than straight households.

I understand where you are coming from, but the fact is, this debate is so far off the OP. I think I need to bow out.
If logical reasoning and scientific study mean nothing to you, then there is absolutely no need for further discussion.

I thought that the Supreme Court ruled that businesses (corporations) were people.

If someone could provide a decent legal argument as to the legal justification for the ban of same-sex marriage I would love to hear it, because I cannot think of one compelling reason.
