How many times has the time-honored (not) concept of "separate but equal" been lauded in this conversation?

Eight, nine? I lost count.

Awareness, I'm trying to follow your logic here ... but I want to check something to make sure.

You are aware that there are gay/lesbian Christians, right?

There are many LGBT-affirming churches?

Yes Im sure there are but i don't go to Church. Not in 16 yrs atleast. Things im sure have changed a bit, in some churches.

Honestly i don't care what people do, i just think the whole thing is too much pushing of one group onto another, and could see it causing further division between peoples all due to their Sacred Beliefs being infringed.

I'm not sure "Christian Mingle" is exactly a bastion of people's sacred beliefs.

Anyway, just wanted to make sure you were clear on the fact that gay folks can be Christian too.

There's no reason, particularly under California law, that they should have been excluded from participation in a public business.

EDIT: PS, get some sleep and take care of yourself!

Why?

Are there different levels of American citizens, in your view?

No one is forcing their values on another. (And, I'd like to see the law you're referring to there, just in passing.)

I guess you're not a fan of States Rights. California law is specific in this case.

Honestly though, your posts are really lovely examples of "local colour" ... never change Cav!

edit on 5-7-2016 by cavtrooper7 because: (no reason given)

Gay bullying incident No. 2: A florist in the state of Washington is being sued after turning down a long-time customer, a homosexual man, who wanted flowers for his same-sex “wedding.” The owner politely explained her refusal arose from her Christian faith. But she didn’t get the email about the unacceptability of resisting any homosexual request these days. The gay man sued her, and then the state attorney general piled on with another suit. Good news, though: she is counter-suing for religious discrimination.

Gay bullying incident No. 3: Then there’s the Christian photographer in New Mexico who was fined $7,000, a ruling recently upheld by the creatively fascist New Mexico Supreme Court. Elane Photography declined taking photos of a same-sex ceremony, citing Christian religious beliefs. The couple sued because there are apparently no other photographers in that state. Or maybe out of pure lesbian spite.

Gay bullying incident No. 4: In private companies, homosexual advocates are inventing new methods for discriminating using “non-discrimination” policies. Former NFL player Craig James was fired after one broadcast as a commentator for Fox Sports allegedly because of remarks he made while running for the U.S. Senate in Texas. (Ted Cruz won that race.) All candidates on a panel were quizzed about same-sex marriage, and Craig James spoke up for the biblical view of sexual morality. Fox dismissed him, but James is suing Fox Sports for religious discrimination.

Gay bullying incident No. 5: A bakery in the Denver area is being sued by a homosexual couple for not baking a cake for a same-sex ceremony. Possible jail time is involved.

Gay/trans bullying incident No. 6: A bar owner in Portland must pay $400,000 to 11 transvestites because of emotional distress following a phone call. He asked that they not return to his bar; customers were complaining and leaving.

Gay/trans bullying incident No. 7: Natalie Johnson of San Antonio was fired from Macy’s in 2011 after she refused to allow a teen male to enter the women’s dressing room. She cited religious faith and concern about the privacy of biological women. Both of these protected classes – sex and religion – are included in virtually every “non-discrimination” policy or law (including Macys’).

Gay bullying incident No. 8: Dr. Frank Turek, Christian author, speaker and radio host, is also a management consultant. He was fired from his consulting contract with Cisco Systems when a homosexual participant in his class took offense after reading one of Turek’s books supporting man/woman marriage. The participant complained to Cisco human resources, and Turek was gone.

Gay bullying incident No. 9: Jim and Beth Walder are Christians who own a bed and breakfast in Paxton, Ill. When they declined renting their facility to a homosexual couple for a civil union, they were sued.

Gay bullying incident No. 10: A Vermont bed and breakfast was sued by a same-sex couple based on the state’s “human rights” ordinance for not hosting their event. The Wildflower Inn eventually agreed to pay $30,000 in settlement fees.

Are you seeing the pattern here? Vindictiveness, intimidation by establishing oppressive legal precedent. In short, this is a campaign of terrorism. The goal is for Christians to bow before homosexual rights, one way or another.

Gay bullying incident No. 11: Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association in New Jersey declined a lesbian couple’s request to use the venue for their civil union. They sued, won, and a higher New Jersey court upheld the judgment.

Gay bullying incident No. 12: A bed and breakfast in Hawaii turned down a lesbian couple’s reservation, and they sued. The lesbians won based on Hawaii’s housing “non-discrimination” law.

There are numerous other victims as well: Julea Ward, Crystal Dixon, Angela McGaskill, Jennifer Keeton, and Kenneth Howell, all bullied by universities using misapplied discrimination policies; Viki Knox, Jerry Buell, David Parker, Daniel Glowacki, Dakota Ary, Carla Cruzan, victims of school-based intolerance of high moral values; firefighters in San Diego and police officers Columbia, S.C., directed by superiors to march in “gay” pride parades.

And let’s not forget the over 2 million children in the Boy Scouts, at risk beginning Jan. 1 of corruption by proud homosexuals, all because of “non-discrimination.”

When is this crap going to stop? Fine, I want a $500,00 a year job working at Area 51 because it isn't fair and it doesn't equate too "equality" when someone else has the brains to work on and help develop advanced technologies. Not fair not fair not fair. Lol. I don't get the hypocrisy anymore. Your gay, want acceptance and tolerance but don't want to accept someone elses right to their own beliefs in their own private life? # off then. Had enough.

Are you saying you're posting at World News Daily?

Always a surprise.


Listen, I don't care where you post or what you cite or how many little folksy colloquialisms you toss into your snippets.

California law is clear in this case. Gays are Christians too. Period, end of story, thanks for playing.

There are gay Christians. I know...I know...cue the "They can't be Christian and gay!" rhetoric...

So what if you want to find other gay people that consider themselves to be Christians?

This isn't like an atheist wants to use a Christian site to find atheists. There aren't atheist Christians.

Last I checked THEY are an isolated state that represents itself with it's psychotic court decrees.
NOT any form of faith nor a theological leader to decide such things.
