You have a six pack, I have a pony keg. Who's the loser now? Got lots of hair too. Even on my palms. Long skinny bird legs. No ass. Man titties. Ah I'm a sight! And I'm not even afraid of the gay.
Getting old is a lot of fun. Shot my first turkey the day before Thanksgiving. Scared the sh!t out of everyone in the frozen food department.
LOL! Good one. Got any more bar jokes about Sheepie?

I defended the baker.
He didn't refuse blacks or Jews. He just didn't believe 2 men should get married.
I know you're not going to agree but I do think it within his rights. I don't agree with the baker myself given I'm for gay marriage but I too thin k we have to respect everyone's opinion on this.
How does baking a cake, or anything else for a gay couple "violate his rights". If he feels so strongly about Christ, then shouldn't he be even MORE OFFENDED by people who adamantly state that Jesus of Nazareth is NOT The Christ ? Isn't denying the divinity of Jesus even MORE offensive ?

I was one of "them". I used to spit venom at gays and others due to misplaced anger and prejudice. I grew up that way.
Funny thing is I married a "non-white" woman and count gays as my friends now.
I just think it's such a horrible waste of time how some spend their lives trying to block gays from marrying or think about other aspects such as race in considering who should be allowed in the clubhouse of life.
Given time the idea of gays will be a non issue I believe.
The recovery from bigotry...It makes good reading.

I don't want to start this argument again so I apologize for even bringing it up.

In past discussions those in favor of the gay men involved had some very valid points as you do here.

As it is it's the law that no one be set aside should they visit a business so I'm essentially wrong in defending the baker's actions to begin with.

Hopefully these 2 gay men had better experiences from other vendors. I'm from Colorado myself and know it's a very friendly state to homosexuals.

Good post Rose and exactly right. God killed everyone on the earth and Satan only kill 6 people and it was because God told him to. God lied to Adam and Eve and Satan told them the truth. Christians can not find a single good kind decent act in all the Bible by their monster God.
God engaged in prevarication. "...of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eat thereof thou shalt surely die" (Gen. 2:17), "God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die" (Gen. 3:3), "the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die" (Gen. 3:4), and "all the days that Adam lived were 930 years and he died" (Gen. 5:5). God said Adam and Eve would die on the day they ate of the tree and the devil said they would not. They ate of it and Adam lived to be 930 years old. In other words, God lied and the devil told the truth. Yet, according to Titus 1:2 "God never lies."
GOD ORDERS MEN TO BECOME DRUNKEN: "Then tell them,'This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword I will send among you" (Jer. 25:27).
But officer, God ordered me to drink and get drunk.
Thanks.
Yeah, that god of the buybull is awful!

Did your mom tell you the other boys made fun of your tiny member because they were jealous?
Is that why you feel that if I were a man, I'd consider being told I'm hung an insult?
Now look at this video. The imagery and lyrics are subtle, but do you think they indicate men think being hung is a bad thing?

Coming up later! Stay tuned. Heard some new ones last night. Let me get my hangover under control first. A little hair of the dog maybe a nice bloody mary with lots of horseradish freshly ground. Covers breakfast too. Put a celery stick in it, my doc will be happy.

I see X-Rated wants to entertain us today too. Ah good times!

No sense being nice to these clowns Dan. But it's admirable. It won't pay any dividends though. Trust me.

A drunken Sheepie walks into a bar and says to the bartender,“Drinks for all on me. That is including you, bartender.“ The bartender follows the man’s order and says,“That will be $142.50 please.“ The drunk says he has no money, and the bartender slaps him around and throws him out.

The next night, the same drunk Sheepie comes in and orders a drink for everyone in the bar including the bartender. Again, the bartender follows the Sheepie's instructions and then Sheepie says he has no money. So the bartender slaps him around and throws him out.

On the third night he comes in, Sheepie orders drinks for everyone except the bartender.
The bartender says,“What, no drink for me?“

“Oh, no. You get violent when you drink.“ Replies Sheepie.

I think some people need purpose no matter how misguided. Hate is an easy avenue.
I'm no liberal. I too felt many of the feelings that would have been seen as prejudice against gays and others but I hope I've learned through experience and life that other people occupy the same space I share and it's none of my business how they live life as long as they harm no one else. They respect my space so why should I not in turn respect theirs.
It's been such a waste of time that we blocked gays from marrying or even spent time thinking about who's gay and who's not. I think about it now and wonder why we as "straights" even care. We're lucky to find someone to love in this world as it is.
You sound almost to have had a "conversion" -- to wit, not only overcoming previous prejudices (WOW, I almost typoed "precious," hahahaha) but communicating very effectively that you *believe in* the new you.
