I cancelled my vendor's license a couple of years ago because I saw this coming.
I can't compromise my religious views to satisfy a secular society.A society that
is quickly falling to levels of depravity that has never been seen before.A society
that demonizes what is good and glorifies what is bad.
The nails around the coffin are nearly complete and this world is about to be judged.
Please,enjoy your victory while you can.

I respect that. In fact, I applaud your decision, because it takes the courage of one's convictions to put personal values before the almight dollar.

As a Christian, I have to disagree. Jesus told us to love one another as He loves us. He also told us not to judge, and that we cannot understand "marriage" from a Heavenly perspective, and to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. When our judgment day comes, I don't believe for a minute that Jesus (or St Peter or whoever) will harshly judge us for loving and being good to others. I think many heterosexual couples have a whole lot more to worry about than committed, loving same-sex couples.


Please,enjoy your victory while you can.


I really don't know what "victory" you are referring to. My apologies.

I like this idea a lot better than the one where someone gets sued out of a livelihood over a difference of faith and opinion.

I would have to ask you that if He defined marriage, first as God, and then again as Christ, since when did marriage stop being Heaven's and start being Caesar's?

No one forces anyone to patronize a place that doesn't cater to you either.

Do buddhists seek books on bnuddhism at a Christian bookstore?

That has what to do with what?

Anyway, if all they sell is Christian books - - then they are not discriminating.

Every customer has the same right to buy any of their books.

If all I sell is traditional wedding cakes for traditional wedding ceremonies, anyone is free to buy one of those.

Sorry, if your wedding is not traditional, I don't do cakes for those kinds of weddings. But that's not good enough. I get sued.

Why would it irritate me?

It might irritate the buddhist to discover the Christian book store doesn't really have much, but the point is that the buddhists do not turn around and sue them for not carrying buddhist books.

Me too!

I would say that neither God nor Jesus defined marriage... however, as soon as government codified marriage and granted civil -- not natural -- rights and privileges therein, it started being "Caesar's." Anyone can marry themselves before God and Heaven with no government intervention, certification, and/or privileges under the law.

Not to derail my own thread... and at the risk of revealing my ignorance(!)... what does "whinging" mean exactly? I've seen it before and at first though it was just "whining" misspelled, but I think it's more than that. I've tried to figure it out within its context, but I'm failing miserably!!!

There is so much subjective nonsense in this quote of yours. I'm sorry that you view homosexuality as depravity, seeing as it is entirely natural and widespread in the animal world (hint: we are animals too), and particularly that you have a stone-age death cult view of what is good and what is bad.

Sounds like you have already judged it.

It can't help but laugh at the fact that you have the word 'Queen' in your avatar. Opening yourself to mockery both at the double entendre and the ego...
