Its happened to bed and breakfast owners. Parents in some schools are being forced to have their children learn about homosexuality against the wishes of the parents.
Look also what happened to Chick-fil-A.
If I'm against race mixing, and an inter-racial couple wants me to make them a b/w cake celebrating their union, and I deny them my services on the basis of race, do you agree with that?

For the record, businesspeople should be free to be as nice or bigoted as they want to be. Let the free market eliminate them from the economy, and make it easier for good people to know which businesses to avoid. Kind of like how I use the Christian demarcations in phone book listings.

Most people don't have a baby before they get married. What we do know is that only 2 opposite sex people can procreate naturally. Same sex cannot.
I could care less what you and your warped religious interpretations mean to you and you don't get to tell me or anybody else that the reason for marriage is to have kids. If the only reason you got married was to procreate nasty little fundie trolls, as you were, for your religious crap, that's your damn business and not to be forced onto the masses.

Homosexuals are not being deprived any rights. Are you for prohibiting the rights of brothers and sisters to marry? Groups to marry?
Blacks and whites weren't being deprived of the right to marry either.

Notice that you never answer questions. You've learned that if you answer questions too often, it will give us ways to catch you in lies or logical contradictions. If you weren't so dishonest, you wouldn't have to work so hard at avoiding providing direct answers to questions.

Homosexual couples do not reproduce, incapable of modeling balanced parenting to children, children do better in the traditional family than any other kind of family, it would encourage homosexual behavior (which is unhealthy), it would equate same sex marriage as equal to traditional marriage, forces people to accept something that violates their moral convictions.
So, you DO support banning the infertile and elderly from marrying. It would be nice if you'd be more explicit about it, though. Leaving it for us to surmise from your "gay is the bad" posts makes you appear wishy-washy, and you know what the Bible says about that.

Blacks and whites should be allowed to marry if they are opposite sexes.

What other reason do you have, then? Remember that procreation is not the SOLE reason to marry because many couples marry and do not/can not have children!!!

Why? And, what if they're incapable of procreating? Should they still be allowed to marry? If so, why?

Well he owns you guys in every thread and every debate. Don't you unbelievers ever get tired of looking like fools and losing every single debate? No wonder you unbelievers have to resort to childish and idiotic lies.......

Time to go make up some more lies about the bible......or maybe get your "friends" to start banning people.

Opposite sex people should be allowed to marry. Even people in their old age who cannot procreate still affirm the value of traditional marriage which benefits all.

Could you kindly define "NOT LONG AGO"? Because frankly your "NOT LONG AGO" sounds like stuff from the Old West........almost 170 years ago.......but I could be off!!!
It actually happens today in our time. In remote villages in China, Russia, Africa, South and Central America NG and other groups have filmed this taking place. To change a popular phrase, "What's born in the village, stays in the village." Watch Fiddler On The Roof if you wish to see a theatrical example. The indigenous people right here in our country did this thing in their tribes all the time. The east coast Indian tribes, the plains Indians, the west coast Indians and the Pueblo Indians all did it. A young couple married and the village helped build their home and gave gifts to help them begin their lives.
