However do you keep the Muzzies from hanging the Gays, I'll never know.
I know many people from many places. Some from my church, some from work, some from a variety of other connections--including family. And, it would seem that people who are gay run throughout.

And it would seem that a good many of them are Christian.

But, for the record, we don't have Muslims "teaching" at my church. We hosted an opportunity for Christians and Muslims to share their faith in an exchange. The aim was to better understand one another. And we carried out some service projects together.

Let's hope it didn't involve broasted chicken.

Discriminating is also violating moral law. They are just even.. But of course the employers thinks they are better just because they follow Jesus.

Ms. Hale was not the victim of discrimination, as she voluntarily entered into a contract with the Diocese.

Why can't the church demand the stoning to death of adulterers in its employ? just wondering.

The spirit of "Anti-Christian" freedoms in the Obama administration and the "Pro-Gay" spirit or just the "fear of Gay Bullying Agenda" is so apparent.
The hatred of Christians by Gays is so obvious that their gay agenda is to silence or better yet, "crush" any Christian views and freedoms. They actually assume their gay views will not continue to be exposed as such shameful, so unnatural, disease ridden, extremely weird and gross behavior to the rest of the world..."IF" and only "IF" they crush the Christians words... the "bullhorn of the truth". The only problem with this gay agenda is that....it will not and "Cannot" ever silence anyone...(sorry). Christian or not, many straight people will always feel this way and eventually stand up to your bullying.

Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but ONLY he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me (Jesus) on that day, "Lord, Lord did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?"

Then I (Jesus) will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Depart from me, you who practice iniquity."

Good grief, are you nuts? Go over to the Middle East and they will stone you, if that is what you desire!

You consider being able to employ those who you choose, to be morally equivalent to vigilante execution.

That's the strawman fallacy.

A strawman argument is a statement, not a question. I simply asked a question. You don't want to answer. I get it. Hopefully someone will have the balls to.

Give me a break! Do you honestly think that the story of Jesus Christ being born to a virgin was the first story of its kind? No, it wasn't. So please explain why YOUR story is the only REAL story. There are many paths to the higher power. Deal with it.

Repeat for the dull-headed:

Ms. Hale broke the terms of her contract and was terminated according thereto.

Of course you have cast yourself among the favored, and able to discern those not favored.
