Butterbean, the ONLY person who has said that it is okay to break laws at gay pride events, is you and despite providing me with several hundred pictures to look at, you couldn't even find ONE in which ANY law was being broken, unless they were the laws of good taste. The organizers PROHIBIT illegal acts at these events you dolt, its why they have marshals to police the events. You prove that there is a right of people to break the laws at these events and you might have a point, but right now, all you have is hot air.

It is the issue. Since you're only willing to guard your own then you can't see it. It's not a surprise.
No, jeesus nutcase, your post didn't address the issue, which was about our laws saying bigot business owners may not act out their bigotries by discriminating.

This principle has nothing to do with "people like me."

Again, we know this is all hypocritical, fundie scum nonsense:

The bigot baker doesn't discriminate against all the many "sinners," only against glbt people. So we know it's simple bigotry.

And we know that any business which refused to wait on xstain mullah fundamentalists on the basis of religious beliefs would be sued by some christianist organization the very next day.

You freeeks think you get to bear false witness because you base your bigotry on some perverted, selective understanding of scripture. The law says otherwise, you cretin, because this isn't a theocracy.

No. I even provided you with the law that was specifically being broken based on the photos. So either you are lying about the illegal acts or you are being ignorant. Either way. I support the gay events dispute the laws broken just like I support the baker because we are ALL Americans.

This is America. We ALL have individual rights. You discriminate, obviously, yet that's your main complaint.

Yes. Americans are realizing government is getting too big, removing our freedoms and placing our future at high risk. That's for a different thread isn't it.

But I haven't said fundie scum can't marry, adopt, serve openly, be protected from firing.

And no muslim or jewish business would be permitted by fundie scum to bar fundie scum from the premises.

So you're merely another mentally ill freeek with his faux jeeesus on, you disgusting vermin.

Call me all the names you want. It doesn’t change the facts. Gay pride events have never been within the laws of the cities they have them in, yet they happen and the general public is FOCED to accommodate and be TOLERANT. So you ask all of America to be tolerant of gays and in the same breath refuse tolerance for a man who doesn’t sell a wedding cake to gays.

Like I said before… I am an American. I support the gays in their pride and civil unions, and I support the baker who only sells wedding cakes to man-woman couples… It’s not about religion it’s about freedom, and whether you like it or not Christians are guaranteed freedoms same as you.

This isn't a theocracy. The principle of business owners not being able to discriminate has been clear for decades...which is about how far behind the culture your stupid, backwater mentality is. Business owners are still allowed to not like black people, or women, or the disabled - they're free to hate - they just can't discriminate.
Although I'd love to see a Unitarian business throw some fundie cranks out of her business for reasons of "religious" belief. Then we'd hear a different tune about all this from the fundie scum.
gee. You're not a bigot who uses stereotypes and refuses to acknowledge discrimination on whole. Only when it fits a phoney agenda.

Does being gay an excuse to break decency and disorderly conduct laws at gay pride events? Apparently hamsters know better than you.
