The funny thing is that the Republican Party is supposed to be the party of Christians.

The drama queens are nutters for even wanting to get married in the first place.

Proverbs 6:16-19: There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.


So that settles it! The Two Party System is the great abomination of all mankind.




Good one, lol.

I see that some folks are simply not happy about the Commission being exposed as bigoted ignoramuses and therefore Jesus sucks even more now, and all Christians are the problem.

You need new glasses. Or did the sound of reeeeeeeeeee coming out of you make you misread posts here?


You need to stick to your convictions and ignore my posts, remember? Don't tell me this ignorant stupid Aussie triggers you this much?

[don't answer that, we both know]

Yes I have. If I wanted a cake, I would go to someone willing to take my money. Forcing someone will not change them. It will only harden their view. Being polite an showing them kindness and respect for their views is a better example.

LOL. Your whole post is a beautiful rant about something that doesn't exist in the first place.
Beautiful I tell ya.
Keep it up. I love it.

I'm okay with this. I just defended the bigot bakers yesterday when my boyfriend said something along the lines of it being discrimination.

I asked him (he's a writer) if he'd be willing to write a commissioned fiction novel with a maga guy as the main protagonist and to pepper it with pro-trump language and he said "hell no". I asked him to explain the difference and he kinda conceded.

This isn't the same as saying they can't eat in your restaurant or get married by a clerk; it's an artisan choosing his art.

Took me a while to come to that conclusion but I've felt that way for a while.

Guess SCOTUS ruled in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to bake a gay wedding cake on religious grounds...

SCOTUS Ruling




The justices, in a 7-2 decision, faulted the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's handling of the claims brought against Jack Phillips, saying it had showed a hostility to religion. In doing so, the commission violated his religious rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.


Thoughts?

I don't think a business should be forced to serve anyone for any reason. Idiot businesses turning away hard earned cash will likely find themselves out of business. Secondly, if a company doesn't want my money, I am going to take my business elsewhere.



I've always found it fascinating that people would INSIST that someone that CLEARLY show no interest in baking a cake for them MUST bake them a cake.

Will that cake be made with the best attention to detail? The best work imaginable?

Wouldn't they be better served taking their business elsewhere?

Yep. They followed Gods law by freeing the slaves... and giving them the right to vote.

Dims were unanimously against God.

Sound familiar??

Then they should have got one where they were getting married.



They were already married, in New York I think. They wanted to have a reception in their hometown in Colorado.

Nice to see the baker holding dogs in high esteem over gay people.

Indeed. The article linked is quite factual, as opposed to the screed we see being promoted.

Colorado's laws against discrimination are very specific and obviously include the refusal to provide public accommodation based on sexual orientation (which is what the baker did.)

The Commission, on the other hand, made their decision not based on that fact, but on a spurious interpretation that one's religious beliefs are not equally important with other civil rights.

SCOTUS corrected that today. This is a win for Civil Rights.

"She told him that the dog wedding cake would need to feed 20 people and should be decorated with the names 'Roscoe' and 'Buffy,'" the ACLU writes. "Without hesitation, Phillips quoted her a price and asked how soon she needed it."
