Morals being considered "barbaric" is a perfect example of this.
...
Still SMH at morals being considered barbaric now, exiting thread..........


You have an excellent point.

You know that now it is barbaric
to quote biblical morals;
"do not" kill - how passe and barbaric
"do not" steal - get real so last season and barbaric
honor your parents - really!!! that is extremely barbaric
..........................and beyond anything any reasonable person would do
"do not" lie - come on our politicians have taught us
.............. that to lie is to gain power,
...............really barbaric to suggest we should not lie


I know, people who have morals,
they are really disgusting.

Trying to force everyone into some
barbaric and cruel mold!

Morals are just so passe and something no one in their right mind
would have these days.

How can we justify allowing people to live by their morals,
how oppressive that they be allowed to live by a moral
code, oppressive, mean and politically totally incorrect.

Just the thought that morals, particularly if they are in
a religious book should be allowed to be practiced in public,
well just horrifically barbaric, and written into law to allow
people to live by their morals, oppressive, unjust and
totally inconceivable.

Why all laws based on morals in the Bible must be immediately
be rescinded and the people set free.
Because any morals found in the Bible are automatically
barbaric and oppressive and cruel.
Everyone knows that!


And to allow people live by the oppression of the "do not's" ?
Inconceivable in this enlightened day and age.

A doctor refusing service for moral or religious reasons? Who really cares? Obviously there is someone who is better qualified and more willing to provide the services you need.

No, let him have his beliefs, and let him practice them. As religion becomes more irrelevant, it will reflect on these doctors economically. People will stop going. Consumers aren't robots and have the ability to choose—at least I would hope they do. Forcing someone to provide services on moral grounds is just as bad as denying someone services on moral grounds.

How about keeping your faith and sexual preference personal. Problem solved!

But nooo, everybody today has a friggin point to prove and they want to jam their beliefs down each others throat.
Never once has my Doc asked me my religion, and I give two flips about his. Now if I walk in with a upside down cross on my forehead and try to convert him to my religion every time I have an appointment, I expect him to eventually get fed up and ask me to move on. Its his right to make that choice and I respect that. Just like I have the freedom to go elsewhere if im not comfortable with the situation.

Most of you are over exaggerating with these worst case, made up scenarios. Doctors are not going to just start judging every person that walks in the door and kick them out if thy don't share similar beliefs. Business owners just want some rights to say NO if the over the top situation presents itself.

Stop putting you life on blast and getting bent out of shape when someone does not agree.

So if you (or loved one) are in a Hospital and need a Blood Transfusion, or an organ transplant, or just some minor thing and the Doctor refused to treat you because of his "Religious Beliefs"

Sorry,not sorry that is not "Freedoms" that is someone getting paid to do a Job and leave Bias at Home

Everything has a limit, don't be naive. The point here is people are being pushed over the top lately, and groups are targeting businesses and trying to force them to compromise their morals in a big way, and if a business does not comply they get sued into oblivion for discrimination.

Tell me, where is the protection and freedom for the business owner?

This was a non issue 10 years ago. Why all of the sudden is this an issue now? People were actually tactful and they kept their personal life to themselves not to long ago, remember? It all just magically worked. What happened?
Maybe because people want to shove everything in our face now and make us like it? What did you expect to happen?

The point is doctors have a sworn oath, and declining people care on the basis of incompatible religious beliefs is in violation of that oath.


People were actually tactful and they kept their personal life to themselves not to long ago, remember?

What you call tactfully keeping their personal lives to themselves is what I call people keeping their lives secret due to systemic discrimination.


It all just magically worked.

Working for whom?


What happened?

What continues to happen. Society evolves.

I know huh?!?!? I wish we could go back to then. You know when Religious People held their Personal Beliefs to themselves instead of pushing into everything from business to politics to other peoples bedrooms.

What did happen???

Ignorance is a Lifestyle Choice



There is a big difference between having an unnatural or improper attraction and acting upon it, my friend. It isn't like I haven't seen a beautiful woman before only to find out she is married or already dating. If I have an inappropriate thought about someone that makes me angry and I want to punch them I still have the ability to not act upon that thought. The problem is when people are self-indulgent and act in an anti-social way. If I have an anti-social thought I don't indulge that behavior. I don't give energy to those negative thoughts and actions.

You always have a choice to entertain negative thoughts or not. It is possible not to have an affair with a neighbor's wife even if I am attracted to her. It is about having self control and not indulging in inappropriate behavior. I understand many people do have affairs due to character flaws or inability to empathise, etc. That doesn't make it okay.

I know it is hard for you people to discuss this logically because it is such an emotionally charged issue for you, but I still see it as a choice to engage in inappropriate behavior, regardless of what that behavior might be. There are many criminals that lack impulse control and are anti-social and I wouldn't want to deal with them or their negative behavior any more than I would want to deal with yours.

Does this mean I wouldn't check you out at Wal-Mart? No, but I wouldn't want someone like that in my life either just like I avoid people that use drugs, etc.

That is the best I can explain it and I can't make it anymore clear. Hopefully you can respond without anymore insults, but like I said i do understand it is emotional for you.

the dominists rose up??? remember when kennedy was running for president and everyone was worried that he would have more allegiance to the pope than to the US? What in hades name happened? Now they want the politicians to have more allegiance to the pope, or whatever christian denomination they are following, than the US.

Are you seriously trying to call inherent Sexual Orientation a behavior?

Are we still in the Dark Ages?

And, BTW, who is "you people"?

a reply to: lucifershiningone

For him to not "get it" suggests he does not feel any less attraction to one than the other and therefore made a choice..we have to see it from his eyes

Nothing wrong with either choice.

1) Yes. We always have a choice and can modify our behavior from negative to positive. There is no reason to act on inappropriate attraction.

2) You people being those who engage in homosexual behaviors. I thought that was obvious.
