Here's the thing that gets me about gay opponents. They're all so "up in your face" about their "disapproval" of homosexuality. They have to broadcast it everywhere they go. They put it on their bumper stickers, they wear it on their t-shirts, or they pin it to themselves on a button. They just refuse to keep their lifestyles to themselves.

I don't care if people want to disapprove of homosexuality in the privacy of their own homes. Whatever revolting things they want to do on their own time in their own place is fine.

But if you decide to flaunt your perverted gay hate everywhere you go, don't be surprised when there are consequences. Don't be surprised if employers don't want anything to do with you. Don't be surprised if your normal friends with good morals abandon you. Don't be surprised if even your own family rejects you.

Keep your gay hate in the closet where it belongs.

It's very true. As a raging homosexual, I've personally destroyed several Christian businesses and I've seen to it that hundreds of Christians have lost their jobs. The problem isn't so much that we hate Christians, which we do, trust me, it's just that for every Christian business we shut down, our penis gets an inch bigger. And for every Christian we get fired, another pleasure nerve develops in our anal sphincter. You really can't compete with biology, so I'd recommend you just try to relax, and I promise I'll be gentle.

This is absolutely untrue and you are spreading a lie.  The donor list was legally released by the California Secretary of state as mandated by law.  Quit  spreading lies.

Thanks for being an asshole while calling me a liar over a mistake.  I didn't realize California had a $100 threshold for disclosure of donations to non politicians.

I notice you didn't correct me on the private phone call Stirlings had or the bakers case where they are essentially a kosher deli being forced to serve an unkosher cake.

Please explain this. What makes a kosher deli kosher is not their refusal to serve a particular customer. It is the list of ingredients that they do not use in their food. What ingredient is included in Gay Cake that is forbidden in Christian cake? Because that would be the only way the two situations would be at all the same.


Gay ingredients... Cumin?

I thought it was more about being edgy and daring and non-conformist, but yeah.  The more you ask them to not use the words, the more self-righteous they get about defying your wishes.  It's extremely frustrating, especially when they play the "you're too old to understand how the world works anymore" card --- which is pretty much every time you ask them to stop doing something they don't want to stop doing.

ricbach229: The cake is a part of the celebration of the blessing.  Hell, I've got an uncle-in-law that wouldn't visit my house because my wife and I weren't married yet and were living together.  After the marriage he talked to his priest about if it was appropriate because she is Catholic and we didn't have a Catholic service (outdoors in fact) so it wasn't recognized by the Church.  I think he's visited once and he said the prayers before we ate. I can easily believe a person of conscience could have a strong religious desire not to contribute any type of blessing on a service that violates the tenets of their church.


Sure, people believe all sorts of stupid crap.  That doesn't mean we should applaud them for it.

As often happens, H.L. Mencken said it best:  "We must respect the other fellow's religion but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart."

I guess these Christians prefer "living in sin" as they call it, since they actually don't want people to get married.


Nobody should want to get married1. It is a terrible financial decision.

ricbach229: The cake is a part of the celebration of the blessing. Hell, I've got an uncle-in-law that wouldn't visit my house because my wife and I weren't married yet and were living together. After the marriage he talked to his priest about if it was appropriate because she is Catholic and we didn't have a Catholic service (outdoors in fact) so it wasn't recognized by the Church. I think he's visited once and he said the prayers before we ate. I can easily believe a person of conscience could have a strong religious desire not to contribute any type of blessing on a service that violates the tenets of their church


No one will ever hold a gun to their heads and force them to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. They are free to refuse - if they are willing to deal with the consequences of their actions. Refusing the cake to a gay couple is negatively impacting their business. If they are going to refuse the cake, they need to accept the consequences of that refusal.

I have to wonder, though, if they would refuse the same cake to the couple previously married and divorced, the atheist couple, the couple with kids outside of the marriage, the couple wearing mixed fabrics and serving lobster at the reception, ect, or is it just the gay couple who violates their code.

So, by your logic, your mortgage was a 'sinful' one and the bank would have the right to refuse to finance your house or foreclose once they found out about it if it was against the bank owners religious views.

Is that your argument?

No it's because the sin of being gay is EXTRA terrible because of projection. They hate it in themselves. they can forgive thieves and adulterers easily, but gays? That hits too close to home. To accept them would be one step closer to falling into sin themselves.

I'm still trying to figure out what parallel universe we're talking about.  Is this the one where doctors prescribe sandwiches to treat medical conditions, operating a deli requires a "butcher's license," and part of getting a butcher's license involves swearing to make any sandwich for which the customer has a prescription?

Because I would think in such a universe there could not legally be any such thing as a "kosher deli."

What happen to judging a business of the quality and fairness of their product/service and not their beliefs.

When Christians decided they were going to preach morality onto the rest of society and vote for discriminating laws.

it's not just Christians.  Those who won't eat at Chick-fil-a because of the owners beliefs and yet by all accounts the stores treat their employees well and they provide excellent service to their customers. Better than average for their industry. 

I'm sure there other examples besides Chick-fil-a but it is the easiest to use. 

maybe i'm too naive on this issue.  Do you have the product/service i want or need and will you provide it a a fair price. Yes.good I'll buy, no okay I'll keep looking.


Making a decision not to give money to a business that donates to discrimination causes is just as bad as voting in legislation that restricts someones rights? You are not naive, you are just dumb.

Exactly. I'm a heterosexual woman. I'm married to a heterosexual man. We have a baby, and we plan to make another. Hey, we're even white (Dutch and Irish genes make for very pale babies).  And you know what? I support marriage equality. I voted against Prop 8, and I have no plans to eat at Chik-Fil-A.

Yes, I have gay friends (including two who just got married, with Latrice Royale officiating!), but it shouldn't even matterthat it affects people close to me. I support homosexual marriage because I'm human and believe in equality under the law.

That can't be right.  Seriously, it can't be.


I think it's more like "We don't want to serve gay people, and gay people taking their business elsewhere is fine with us. But people who don't agree with us that gays should be discriminated against are also taking their business elsewhere, and there are so many of them that it is actually hurting our business, and that's not fair." I think what really gets their goats is that so many non-gay people disagree with their beliefs about how to treat gay people and are willing to act on that disagreement. They can't comprehend that non-gay people could stand up for the fair treatment of gay people without somehow being coerced into it by a gay mafia with a gay agenda.

Or, for the short version, "We aren't the majority we thought we were, and that's not fair" with a side helping of "we are entitled to other people's money".
