I don't think that there is anything wrong with choosing to turn down a job that goes against ones principals. A gay union is abnormal,therefore, participation in that whether sending the cake or being the photographer should not be forced on someone who is against it. We can't force our opinions down others throats.

Why do PC think that they have a right to override everyone's opinions? They think they have a right to abort another's progression in life. They think everyone must accept gay marriage. Sounds controlling in my opinion. I personally wish they'd stop forcing their erroneous opinions on others. They are extremely intolerant of those who don't drink the coolaid that has been forced sown their throats by their peers.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being gay, or two gays marrying. If you do, and you open a wedding cake business, you're probably in the wrong business. Make sure you know your customer base, when you open a business - the base of a wedding cake business, is going to be 'people planning a wedding'.

See how that works?

Would you have this same opinion if the discussion was about darker skinned people? After all those civil rights laws certainly over rode many opinions....don't ya think??

Nonsense, Inky. I've posted with Morgana for quite a while now. I think she's very serious, not to mention spot-on in her assessments. She also has a great sense of humor, not that YOU would notice. I like Morgana. I DON'T like you.

The way I see it, the only ones spouting hogwash are those on the ANTI-CHOICE side, yourself included.

<quoted text>Taking wedding photos , let see when the photographer doesn't agree with SSM, if he or she did, the photographer would admit it's a wedding, it is a sin, bitler. It is a mortal sin to participate in that type of wedding. In fact if the wedding is heterosexual and a judge performs the ceremony, its a sin , because that type of wedding is not a valid marriage if you are Catholic. Just like a Muslim fixing a butter and bacon sandwich for you. Another thing , a nurse having to help out in an abortion is wrong and a mortal sin, so is cleaning up the room where the abortion took place.
Oh, this is complete bullshit. You're such a lying scum.

However, you're STILL missing my point.

I believe this sermon from playa was the beginning of the discussion. I don't see overseas mentioned anywhere.
Persecution of, and discrimination against, gays, is not a right.
Nor is denying one the legal ability to persecute, persecution.
"I realize these are difficult concepts for folks that are used to doing the persecuting...tough. Wrap your mind around this:
Your freedom to worship as you please, does not constitute the freedom to discriminate against others. Worship whatever you want - but if you choose to discriminate against those of whose sexual orientation you disapprove, you will reap the consequences, just like anyone else."
That is obviously NOT the beginning of the discussion.

Yes, you've clearly caught the lying virus from Sassy, Knit and NR.

Agreed. Anti-choicers who are also anti-gay rights seem to have NO problem whatsoever with open discrimination.

All the more reason to read what he has to say. Likes, dislikes aside, challenging points of view are what allow us to explore more thoroughly our own belief systems, and make us ask ourselves questions we'd rather avoid.
I recall hearing about this book on NPR a couple of months ago and thinking, didn't Hugh J. Schonfield already cover this in his book, "The Passover Plot?"
But apparently this author's got something of a different "take" on the material at hand.
If you don't want to buy it "Ink," I'm pretty sure your local library has it...
I prefer to read books by authors who have opposite opinions from mine. Those kinds of books make one think more than books where we agree with the POV.

I couldn't care less where the beginning was. The conversation wasn't limited to this country.

Okay so how does the persecution in the rest of the world like the 200 who were shot today at a mall in Kenya because they weren't Muslims compare with a couple being refused by someone to take their picture or make a ke for them?
Be glad to have this conversation.

You're taking a very narrow view of this issue. Is that the ONLY discrimination gay people face these days? What about the gay boy (man) who was beaten and dragged to his death and hung on some fence? He was one example of individuals being murdered for being gay. How many do you think we don't find out about? What about the lesbian women who have been gang raped just because they are gay?

I think you're more concerned and empathetic about crimes against people for religious reasons rather than non-religious hate crimes. According to your religion being gay is a sin anyway so why feel anything for those people, right? But if someone is victimized because of their religion then it's a huge deal. In that case I think the Jews get the top prize. How can you compare the number of deaths perpetrated in the Holocaust to a mere 200 mall deaths? I mean, that seems to be your logic on this issue.

Gays became more open in recent years so they became the target du jour. Muslims were behind 9/11 so it became fashionable to hate on them. Tomorrow? Who know who will be next..

www.civilrights.org

"Of all hate crimes reported in 2007, the proportion committed against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals rose to 16.6 percent..."
