I provided a starting point, and you can Google from there. You have the capability to read the studies and look up the stats. After all, you are claiming to know more about it than they gay folks whop LIVE it.

You are incorrect in your beliefs, since people on this board have personally experienced such discrimination, and I would say that every gay person here either knows someone who faced losing their job or eviction, or knows people who have hidden their lives and families to avoid it. And being forced to deny your loved ones just to be able to feed yourself isn't really a happier option than being fired.

Unless someone sues and the case goes public, there won't be "links", but pretending you know more than people who actually LIVE this stuff isn't sensible.

You aren't going to convince a single gay person that the discrimination they personally experienced, or witnessed, didn't really exist. Why do you try? Do you also demand that the black people you know prove to you that they face day-to-day discrimination in their lives?

Unless you have walked in someone else's shoes, you can't know what they experience. But empathy is a nice place to start. And it's supposed to be a cherished Christian trait.

i don't care about gays and sure in heck don't care about you.
Which god would that be? "Not caring" about other people isn't really a Christian trait, is it? And since many gay folks are your Brothers and Sisters in Christ, it's even more odd. How can you claim to be a Christian when you disparage other Christians, who care about their God, their Families, and their churches in the same way you do?

wow here is a great example of the gay agenda
bakery won't make the lesbian wedding cake so they run the bakery out of business.
Hey just go find another bakery.
Every place of business should have a right to refuse customers.
They probably can except for gays.
Gays get special treatment.

its a human trait that God allows me the free will to make up my own mind on who i should like and who i should dislike.
You gays know nothing about God's relationship with man..
if you find me odd just imagine what i think of you.
Sorry i don't have any gays folks as my brother and sisters just as Dusty he's been a christian for 30 years ( that is what he claims - i don't claim him as one ) and i'm sure he don't consider me his brother.

i don't consider gays as Christians. Not the ones in here. Not the way they talk to me and to others. I don't see anything Christian about them.
But if they want to stop being gay and repent and ask God for forgiveness yeah i'll consider any FORMER gay as a Christian. Just as soon as they denounce being gay.

Breastfeeding truly is God gift to women. What a wonderful bonding experience it is for them.
When i mention change for a gay into straight. It really got taken way out of context by people wanting to look for reasons to tear it apart. Rather then looking to a more in depth discussion.
In my context i was putting it in was on a gay ready to commit suicide because of bullying, or whatever reason gay related.
When your ready to die over your life for whatever the hell the reason is saying its going to be ok to continue that life and is just going to push them over the edge period.
They need to know that their life can improve get better and even change so that its worth living for. And for people like Anne Heche that is exactly what happened. Not that she was suicidal but she did switch and her life did improve. Being straight is not an evil thing.
As for that gay with the breastfeeding. He could never be changed. ONE he wasn't looking to change.TWO he wasn't suicidal. THREE he was happy being gay
But it does bring up another point.
Gays really don't like women. They don't like sex with women. They don't like motherhood in any way shape or form.The gays in here will never admit to that. One they hate me TWO it shows them for the haters they really are.
Trying to achieve acceptance is how they go about their gay agenda but deep down its fueled with hate towards anyone who doesn't accept them.
Wrong again ! Reparative therapy does NOT work and is condemned by the APA and the vast majority of psychiatrists and psychologists,gee,you know the world wide experts on the subject ! So STOP saying it because you are again WRONG !

What the experts say,AGAIN !

So, if they're Jewish bakers they should have the right to refuse to sell to Christians?
If they're white bakers can they refuse to deal with a African-Americans?

Should gay businesses stop dealing with straight people at their weddings (florists, organists, wedding planners, bakers, etc).

see this is where like always you go off the rails and miss the reality train of thoughts.
no one in here is comparing the black civil rights movement to the gay agenda except you.
No one would because its like apples and oranges difference.

if you would actually talk to any black civil rights leaders you would know they don't want anything to do with your gay agenda.

slavery was inhumanity at its worse. It was true hate for no reason.
Religious people who want nothing to do with your gay agenda are doing for for personal religious belief and should be religious freedom to do so.

plus its the free enterprise system if a place of business don't want to serve you due to legit religious convictions then by law they should have that right.

As far as gays not wanting to use religious businesses i would consider that a blessing from God. Please Dusty stay away religious stores so i can shop in peace.

But (by law) they don't have that right, which is why they're getting challenged. Businesses can't pick and choose whom they choose to serve, unless they are wholly and completely owned by a church.

What part of that is so hard to understand?

Seriously, if a wedding planner who happened to be gay refused service to a couple because they were straight, he could be sued. It goes both ways. A business which serves the public does not have the right to discriminate.

See, this is where you go off the rails, because I gave you several other examples. You chose to focus on black civil right.

You do know that Coretta Scott King herself compared LGBT rights to those of black rights, don't you? I'm inclined to give Ms. King more credibility than you.
