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.

I'm not sure who said it either, but it certainly fits one side of this debate like the shoe was made for their foot.

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.


BS!
Remember, there are plenty of Christian schools out there, just as there are Muslim schools.
Remember, there are plenty of Muslim refugees out there being told "you're not welcome" in "Christian" countries.
Remember, there are aplenty of schools out there who permit Christian prayers while refusing Muslims the same courtesy.

Get off that high horse, it's almost dead and about to fall over and crush you.

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

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.


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.




Please show me where I personally abused and persecuted others.I will be waiting for
that proof trust me!

If you support this law then you support certain people being treated as inferior to others and not worthy of being served. That's not something that I "imagined" it's something you've admitted to if you indeed support crap like this.

And to say you won't be able to defend your faith is ridiculous. No one is taking Christian rights away, they're only lessening their influence over law and government. Our Constitution and the Civil Rights Act make stuff like this illegal, so you're wanting to break established law so that your delicate sensibilities won't be hurt.

Aren't conservatives always crying about PC snowflakes? This law pretty much encourages a "special snowflake" mentality. The irony is palpable.

We should know by now, without any pointing it out, that the Christians and Conservatives are the most hypocritical bunch. They preach what suits them at any given moment.
They scream about liberties and freedoms, while actively working to strip others of their liberties and freedoms.

Everyone will offend everyone else at some time in life.


That's just a fact of life.

The only difference now is that many want to legislate morality and make offending, illegal.

That's called being decent and inclusive.
I know your knee-jerk response is to reject anything new, anything "not Christian" and anything remotely "progressive", but whether you like it or not we live in societies with various people and you do not have a hegemony on rights.

Why the hell shouldn't a school with Muslim students offer them a prayer room if they can?
Why the hell can't a school offer someone a menu they are more comfortable with?
Just why do you hate so many people so damn much, for arbitrary, pathetic, petty little reasons?

It doesn't make it any less true.

I don't consider civil rights, "legislating morality". I think that individual rights should be paramount.

I also think that North Carolina is wrong.

But it takes time for mentality to catch up with legality.

I can assume this is because I refuse to do a gay wedding? Which is why I
cancelled my vendor's license before this all blew up.I pulled myself out of
this before it became an issue.
It also has nothing to do with treating others as being inferior.I can not
cross that line between serving God and serving man.I know this type of
thinking is an abomination to secular thinking individuals.

Well,you just try and have a prayer room for christians in a public school
and see what happens? Trust me,lawsuits will be filed and there will be
screaming in the courts over separation between church and state.

Why would Christians need a special prayer room? There are no specific requirements to Christian prayer.

The Muslim prayer room at this school was created because Christian teachers complained.



Christian teachers became upset when Muslim students began praying during class at Parkdale High School in Riverdale, Maryland. It was at time of required prayer.

I don't agree with Muslim's having a prayer room either in a public school. I don't agree with public prayer and displays of 'look at us, we're so holy and chosen and special and your'e not" spiritual arrogance is a form of bigotry; I don't care if it comes from Holy rollers, Muslims, devotees to the Pineapple gods, or those silly Hare Krishnis.

Go to the Church of your choice, Pray at home, practice your faith, and leave it out of government, schools, and places designated to serve the public.

You don't see me out proselytizing....for the Gods of Cool Whip and Bananas.

Muslim students should be ostracized because their religion has specific prayer times?

How is that their fault?

So, they're given a room to do it quietly and privately. How does that affect others?
