<quoted text> I don't understand it because of the way I was raised. I have learned to be o.k. with it and I'm changing more everyday.
I choose a higher power because the god I was raised on was full of hate and violence. A higher power is just a force greater then yourself, its a personal matter, for some its things like nature or maybe, the love of your children, it can be anything that you can count on. I know its weird but it is what it is.
I don't understand gay marriage for stupid reasons og ignorance and evil. I work daily to improve my views so my children will not be raised like me. I don't want them to be in a world full of hate, bigotry and pain. I've lost my family, my friends of years past I've lost everything because of the views I once had. When I choose to denounce my lifestyle it was just part of something I had to do. I carry physical (ink, pain from fights, I've been stabbed, etc) and mental scars (from the damage I inflicted) from years past. I've left scars on those i came in contact with that didn't share my old beliefs. My only intention here was to show if I can come to tolerate others choices, anyone can. I can never make up for what I have done, but I can make improvements for my children. I don't want them to be like me, raised like me, in the environment I grew up in. I guarantee I won't sleep tonight because of my struggles with excepting my past but that's nothing new . Anyone who wants to dig on me please feel free, I deserve it. I know where I've been, I know where I'm at and I know where I'm going.
I applaud you for working so hard...

If I can only say one thing to you it is this quote:

"Don't judge me by my past...I don't live there anymore."

Best wishes to you in the future.

My tax return this year will get the rest of the hatred i have printed on my body covered. My oldest son is almost 9, I'm looking forward to taking him to public pools and such. To my knowledge he has never seen me with my shirt off. I didn't allow my wife to see my ink for almost a year when we met. When it came to sex it was stricktly lights off or partially clothed....sorry.... She's the most understanding woman alive. My life was sad, she saved me. I'm not as good with words as some of you. I hope I hope I was understandable.

1 ) religion is not based on proof its based on faith. But historical sites and people from the bible have been proven to be true. As for hell anyone who been to war will tell you hell does exist. And they fear that even more then war.
2 ) as for God exist i've seen the birth my daughter from a mother whom doctors gave up on 15 years earlier.To me that was a blessing from God.I. really sorry for you if you never been touched by God that way.
3 ) nuff said
4 A ) i know states issue them :) got one. LOL my argument all along has been states should decide marriage issues not some liberal judge.
4B ) not true at all. In the bible God clearly did not want Adam & Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge, nor was he wild about free will but he allowed it. Jesus when asked about divorce said God allowed it only because of man's harden heart. So God does allow evil into the world but doesn't want it.
5 - 6- 7 i'll ignore it since it refers to the rubble rousers
8 ):)
9 ) good point well ACE is a poster who 1st brought issues that i'm now acredited with - i get that a lot.
actually as much as i enjoy this back and forth its better for you to post your own ideas and let others comment on your ideas
LOL it worked so well for me
but seriously your smart enough not to need to play 2nd fiddle to me.
Jump in and say hey these are my thoughts and then post away
i'm sure you'll get attention to your ideas

this comes a little late to help that baker out but its a great idea.
owning a business and being allowed to refuse a customer for ANY reason sounds right to me.
and who would really want to shop in a place that didn't want you.
what kind of service could they expect.
i would vote for this law
And pray tell what if that baker refused to bake a cake for a black couple,or a Jewish couple ? I suppose it would also be OK to refuse service to them also ? As usual you're wrong once again,if you don't treat all equally what kind of country would this be ? The baker deserved what he got,he broke the law period !

gays love to dip into the black's civil rights movement as if its there movement.
sorry but not the same movement.

But yeah i totally agree that any business should have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

i hope i said that plain enough. Because i keep getting asked do i think it applies to this group or that group, It should apply to all groups, all people, all businesses.

I've been to many a restaurant that had signs like that. And i'm sure you have too. If its ok for them it should be ok for everyone.
AGAIN why would you want to do business with a place that doesn't want you in it.
AGAIN why would a business want to do business with you if for any reason its against their belief. After all they would be losing money, possibly more customers so their belief against serving you would have to be a strong one.

ok one time so you and others get this right

any business should have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

LOL i'll try my best never to take credit for other posters comments.
you would think with all the offensive comments i make they wouldn't need to credit me with your comments.
It is amazing how shook up they get on this forum.
Most forums are business related and kinda boring. But useful for help.
I haven't even tried the other threads on topix.
