They dish it out enough as it is and you know what they say, what goes around comes around. Thing is, if they are persecuted then they brought it on themselves by being bigots.

There is supposed to be separation between church and state now.
The only religion that is protected,and everyone bends over backwards
to not offend,is islam.
Remember...there are prayer rooms in schools for muslims but not christians.

So are corporations good now?

I thought they were all evil.

Mine isn't....we support Apples business practices but would never buy an "i" anything. It's called capitalism.


I'm just being an ass.

Most times on this site, corporations are vilified. It's just funny to see one lauded.

Especially since our constitution already protects religious freedom. Why does any state need another law to protect religious freedoms? They don't, unless they're really trying to take freedom and rights away from others.



"When you are accustomed to entitlement, equality feels like oppression".

I don't know who originally said this but it's been super applicable to this whole "religious freedom" hypocrisy.

So you bring the persecution onto yourself then claim it is biblical? Sounds self-fulfilling to me.

If you mess with a bull don't cry when you get the horns. Don't cry persecution when you brought it on yourself.

They don't care (in my opinion) what is morally right or wrong. They care about making $$$.



Actually, Apple's Tim Cook has shown more than a few times that he cares. I don't think people should be so cynical to assume that just because a company is successful, means they only care about money. There are mega successful people and corporations fighting the good fight, putting their efforts toward a better world, and speaking out on issues out of conscience.


So they'll be pulling out of Pakistan, Afghanistan, SA, Jordan exactly.....when?

Dunno, the constitution seems to have covered it already with freedom of religion statement, bolded in ink.

This law is a dangerous precedent to manipulate the laws of the land to self serve bigots.

Anyone who sees it as anything else is eating a chocolate cake blindfolded convincing themselves its a salad.

A christian shouldn't cry persecution at all.We are told in the end times
christians will suffer persecution.
It is secular thinking individuals who keep repeating that christians bring
persecution on themselves.

At some point, this is going to become a states rights issue vs centralized government. Something we've been thru before in the 1860's. I don't think it will lead to another civil war, but things could get a bit ugly.

Well if Mississippi wants to leave the union, let them, they will shrivel into extreme poverty very quickly, defenseless. They can enjoy all the religious bullying they like then.

If you treat others as inferior to yourself then you are bringing your self-professed "persecution" onto yourself when others respond in kind.

You can't claim something is prophecy if you made it happen intentionally.

Just wait until Christians are denied service for their faith, they will be screaming persecution while calling their own bigotry "moral".



Hypocrisy is at the heart of most "Christians" I have encountered. I was raised Southern Baptist so I have met a lot of them.

Im guessing you think most Muslims are peaceful?

I honestly cannot wait for it to happen and to see the pie on their faces. Might be petty of me but I don't really care. These laws they are pushing are absolutely disgusting.



If the christians are faithful in reading their Bible they already know they will face
severe persecution sometime in the future.


What a lovely belief to behold.

Makes you really want to do stuff for the right reason.

You're pointing a bull horn at a brick wall, bro.

Right after they pull out of Mississippi, Tennessee and North Carolina, which they have no intention of doing.

I don't treat others as being inferior to me at all you just imagine that I do.
I also don't intentionally make prophecy come true because I can't. I can only
follow my beliefs and my own moral compass.I don't force my beliefs and morals
on others as well.
All I try to do is defend my faith and beliefs online as long as I can.Eventually,I
won't be allowed to do that either.

I don't think that is true, and I would hate to think that the constitutions' statement on freedom of religion would ever be tampered with. The only tampering is on a state level to afford bigotry towards others.

You know and I you will never have to worry about that, take that out of your mind, it really isn't going to happen.

It's not "persecution" to be told you are no longer allowed to abuse and persecute others.
Man, the hypocrisy and ignorance of some in this camp is truly ASTOUNDING.
