Yes, Liberals, We Should Sue That Anti-Gay Florist

Apr 12, 2013 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: slog.thestranger.com

I was prepared for religious conservatives to start thrashing back when Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed a consumer protection lawsuit Tuesday against a florist who refused to sell a gay couple flowers for their wedding.

Now I wouldn't go that far as to say "Christian thing to do" but I guess it could be kind of fun. So have fun.

Isn't the Christian thing to do unto others? I know if I had spent hours obsessively begging and pleading for attention and verbal abuse, I'd want SOMEBODY to do it unto me.

Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible [sic].

There are many "sins." You are mentally ill and so only claim the "sin" of homosexuality comes with the wages of death.

Also, you don't adhere to Levitycuss. No christians do. Your quoting it for others to adhere to is known as, "Being a mentally ill hypocrite."

Thanks for the laugh, you sexually sick, wannabe mullah.

Getting harder for bigots to be theocratic bigots.

From your other comments we can see you live, confusedly, in the early 80s.

Go rail against those who smoke cigarettes and get cancer. Blame them at the same volume, you mentally ill freak.

Changing the topic since you lost the argument? That's nice.

The onset of GRID, in which Conan the Bacterium was driving around in homosexuals from coast to coast, is pertinent because you fellas might have again unleashed a plague from hell upon our land.

AIDS II is just a matter of time.

Nothing is worse than living in Pittsburgh. I spent many summer vacations and Xmas breaks in Pittsburgh and hated every minute of it. I visited my elderly aunt 2 years ago in mid May, in Etna, my hotel on the McKnight Road, and it rained every day. No wonder you are so crabby.

Thank you for this kind response! I advocate as I do for reasons specifically based in the refusal of the anti-gay to budge, as well as based in their blatant, screeching, open hypocrisy.

I agree 100%
It is the anti-gay who are *known worldwide* to be blatantly racist, anti-semitic, hateful, bigoted, and viciously predisposed against gay pepole; this isn't even QUESTIONED by pro-gay courts of public opinion.

But you knew that. And the reason we know you knew is that your *self-referential choice of words* is now on the board for anyone and everyone to see.

Hurrah for you and for Dominic Holden. You have both put into words the very thoughts I had, but could not express as eloquently. Bigotry is bigotry, and we must fight it when and where we find it.
Thank you. I keep explaining tirelessly that the *reason* to fight it is *their attitude*. You're dealing with s-o-c-i-o-p-a-t-h-s where these issues are concerned. They are indoctrinated, hateful, and unbudging. Literally *force* them to deal with you every single day for the rest of eternity until they learn to stop their attempts at harassment.

And this has to do with an anti gay florist just HOW?

any ignorant tool can pick up a gun, without education or breeding or culture. When you support something that actually enlightens and helps mankind, get back to me.

Thank God we didn't loose the freedom of any loon, criminal or budding terrorist to buy firearms on the secondary market without a background check and the freedom of those same folk to include military grade firepower in their arsenal. It is definitely a good day in America.
