Here's the difference in the US, there are approximately 70% of Americans who consider themselves Christian, and the number of Americans raised as Christians is even higher than that. The percentage of American Muslims is around 1%.


Well G thats the ultimate red herring.

Because LGBT makes up a whopping total of ,001% of the total population.

Your ignorance is profound, yet, you are so proud of it.

You're utterly mistaken in your assertion, of course, but even if you weren't so absurdly wrong, what difference would that make?

Whether it's 10%, 1% or less than one percent, we're still Americans, still citizens, and we should still have the same rights as you do.

SO what's your point that you keep harping on with this stupid lie of "0.000001%"? Eh?

Okay to trample those folks under your authoritarian, Christo-fascist foot?

Another oft-repeated lie.

What Christian has been prevented from practicing their religion, Neo?

Illegal discrimination against other Americans by denying public accommodation isn't a part of the Christian religion.

What else you got?

Well G if a christian doesn't like gays theres not a damn thing you can do about it.

As per the first amendment guaranteeing religious freedom, and I can throw in the 14th in for good measure with the pursuit of life liberty and happiness.

Stalemate.

Boundary drawn and truth be told.

Neither side has to yield a inch of ground.

That is where it begins and ends.

Who wants Christians to "like" us? Considering that many of "us" are Christian as well? What a silly playground argument to make!

"Does Random Christian Like ME choose YES OR NO" ... grow up for Christ's sake.

So mentioning the First and Fourteenth Amendments brings you to stalemate? With what, another six pack?

Here's the thing. We are all Americans. We should all be treated equally under the laws ... and that's it.

You don't get to tell people what plays they can watch, and I don't get to tell people what delusions they can clutch to their breasts.

That's how it works. Don't like the play, don't go see it.

I don't like church, I don't go there.

EZPZ.

Just exactly what do some people not understand ?



Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.


www.law.cornell.edu...

For the record that also includes petitioning theatres.



All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Don't like the play, don't go see it.


"Don't like X, don't go to there" sounds like great idea

However gays tend to not only go to people they don't like but, they force them to accommodate them and then sue if they don't get their way

You don't understand that neither the First Amendment nor the Fourteenth gives you carte blanche to break whatever laws you like just because you try to play the religion card... obviously.

Next?

You've got a lot of experience with "gays" do you?

Non-discrimination in public accommodation is the law of the land.

Next?

Try addressing my point without distorting misrepresenting what I said

Conflating gays with race isn't going to help

Sorry maybe I misunderstood your point (granted I didn't follow the conversation) but your comment did seem to imply it.

How about if we just speak of Americans, eh?

You're obviously on about the cake thing.

Public businesses in the US don't get to discriminate against a member of the public unless it's reasonable (i.e. like disruption of their business, damaging property, etc.).

If you don't want to serve the public, dont' have a public business.

According to the law where I live, homosexuality is illegal. If I wanted to I could "discriminate" against a gay dude and still remain a law abiding citizen.

(Insert "you have no power here" meme)

You don't understand that LGBT's have NO authority to force a christian in to accepting them.

NO constitutional grounds exist.
