Which is true but...
What you'd really have is two thousand human beings. Two thousand people, who all have the same daily needs of food and love, who all would probably do the right thing given the chance, who all are perfect in Gods eyes, and who all are the same.
And in the end, ll I can say is, I pray that you get all the love and blessings you deserve.

they certainly are going to think twice about going to any restaurant especially that one ever again.
And that is what defines intimidation.
No, it isn't. Having a lying waitress isn't intimidation.

I walk the Earth just as they planned
Baptized in fire for my ancient land
The coming curse, your anti-Christ, I am the Watcher's eye
I vindicate and cleanse the Earth of all mankind

For many years, I've walked among you
Through the folds of time and space
Kingdoms fall, leaders die, as I see fit
I devour souls of those that pose a threat

I walk the Earth another day
The wicked one that comes this way
Savior to my own, devil to some
Mankind falls, something wicked comes

I bide my time planning your fate
With bated breath, The Elder wait
The coming curse, your anti-Christ, I am the Watcher's eye
For your crimes on our kind you all will die

I walk the Earth another day
The wicked one that comes this way
Savior to my own, devil to some
Mankind falls, something wicked comes

Forged in the sacred flames
On the sixth day
Of the sixth month
In the sixth hour

I am your anti-Christ, I will destroy mankind
Born of the beast and flames
I will devour, I will divide

Hellfire rages in my eyes
Blood will fall like rain this night
The coming curse, the anti-Christ, I am the Watcher's eye
I vindicate and cleanse the Earth of all mankind

I walk the Earth another day
The wicked one that comes this way
Savior to my own, devil to some
Mankind falls, something wicked comes

Earth would take to further elevate their position within the metal scene.

i don't recall gays every being sold in America. Their family forced apart. Forced to work.

...oh, I see.... because slavery is what determines civil rights....

Why can't you tell me the difference between them? What is the difference between denying someone service for being gay, black, or Christian?

So they have to be enslaved for their complaints to be valid? Is that what you're saying?

That's only one symptom. They can also be fired or kicked out of housing just for being gay. Many have to hide the fact that they're gay or they'll face punishment. They aren't allowed to marry in many states. They are constantly demonized by a large portion of the population.

You can argue about the degree of how they're mistreated, but on a fundamental level we're talking about the same thing: a hated minority with little power being treated poorly by a majority group.

The Bible says the Earth is a flat disc covered by a solid dome that has the Sun, Moon, and stars stuck on it.

The bible isn't for everyone, it's for Christians. And that's ok, the bible isn't American and has nothing to do with gay marriage. Unless your Christian, in which case you have nothing to do with gay marriage.

The law has already changed. Every state has to recognize federal marriage benefits. Marriage is evolving away from the joke straight people have made of it. Don't you think God is tired of watching straight people destroy what ha gave us all?

And besides, since gay people demand a higher quality of living than straight people, we are becoming wealthier, and straights are becoming poorer. Even churches are loosing money. And money talks. Most people are becoming afraid to support bigots for that very reason, money.

How is denying someone service because they're gay different than denying someone service because they're black or because they're a Christian?
Skin color is vastly distinct from orientations.

A naturally fruitful relationship can hardly be equated to a absolutely barren and desolate relationship.

They didn't deny service, they refused to desecrate marriage, a tenant of their faith.

No, she didn't. The couple was anonymous until THEY came forward. The waitress was trying to get attention for herself and have people feel sorry for her, not to intimidate anyone.
BS.

She was promoting bigotry toward straights, and the libitards got caught in the lie.

The baker makes wedding cakes. The couple asked for a wedding cake. The baker refused. That's denial of service.
Marriage is a critical expression of the Christian faith. It is symbolic of Christ (the Bridegroom and the Church (the Bride).

The union of a man and woman is a representation of made in the image of God.

The baker only refused to make a wedding cake.

You don't know what you are talking about again.

But still, ss couples are only ever mutually sterile pointlessly duplicate gendered halves of marriage.

Are you asserting that wealthy gays will change that???

No, it isn't. Both are traits a person has. And both of those are unchosen, unlikely religion, but that is protected too.

Of course it can. Reproduction is not a required element of marriage.

By your standard, ss couples have failed to measure up to marriage. Their breakup rate is much higher than straights.
You only need a lawyer for a contract. You attempt to radically dumb down marriage to a contract because homosexuals cannot equate to marriage on any other level.
This is the bottom line you will never ever get past; ss couples are only ever a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.
NOTHING you say or do will change that fact.

And again, the world is over populated. If you were smart, you'd welcome less people. Even years ago they figured out that more intelligent couples weren't having kids because of overpopulation.
Gay marriage doesn't have the high divorce rate of straight marriage, couples who aren't married and breaking up aren't really qualified for divorce, thought that was obvious.

Here is the post.
You- break up rates are much higher than divorce rates.
Me-couples who aren't married and break up aren't really qualified for divorce.

You-ss couples are only ever mutually sterile
Me-and again, the world is over populated.

Wow. Just wow. Your post, then my post right after. Commenting on what you wrote, verbatim. You can let it go now. It's ok.
