Personally, I would just go to a store that would serve me, and make sure I told everyone about the crap this one pulled, but then again, the store is there to sell clothing. It isn't like the store owners are forced to attend the wedding or dance around a campfire in a Satanic ritual. We are going to see more and more of these type bigots hiding behind religion. Just look at the Topix trolls hiding behind their computer screens.

So, the argument is that selling a product to folks you don't like it "participating" in their wedding?

Odd idea.

And why in the world would you open a Public Accommodation, and then start discriminating against parts of that Public? It's not bullying for sane folks to show their displeasure at such disgusting behavior.

Finally, a bell goes off. Allow me to correct one bit of nonsense. You said "folks you don't like." It's the gay wedding that's opposed, not necessarily the people.

They are selling clothing. They aren't invited to the wedding, nor forced to attend.

Yes, it's how they make a living. They must feel strongly about it. I like your idea. "Personally, I would just go to a store that would serve me."

If they really believed in their convictions, they would post a sign stating just to whom they prefer to serve. They know that would hurt their business, as if this little stunt hasn't.

I'm not sure about weddings where you guys come from but where i come from we do not routinely invite the supermarket that sold some of the supplies, the baker that made the cake etc to the wedding.

If God does not change his rules then he does not recognize gay marriage. If he does not recognize it why are these christian businesses? If they are not marriages in the eyes of God then there should be no issue. He never said withold services from gays or those who worship other religions. He said kill them so this is just half-assing and unjustifiable according to scripture.

I've served thousands of people and to think i agree in any way with their beliefs or conduct just because i tolerate them and take their money is crazy. I'm quite able to take and spend someone's money and still hate them if need be.

Not selling them gowns hurt their business. I still believe it should be their choice.

Personally, I would walk out the door and never return, but as a society, we can't accept blatant discrimination. I would like to think that if a store or business choses to discriminate, it will run itself out of business, but it could open the door back to the past with certain members of society being openly ostracized and deemed less worthy than others.

The business would not be allowed to deny service to a black couple, or a couple where one was black and the other white. This is no different.

As a society we must accept the 1st amendment. Freedom of religion without government interference.

The store owners can bray about their religion all they want. If they want to serve the public, then they respect the views of others, and provide whatever service the store front claims to offer. If they want to put up a big, "Christian Only" sign then let them. As a business they know better. You don't open a business and then deny service to someone who has walked into your establishment on the grounds that they don't pray to your version of a god or deity. Freedom of religion is not a free pass to discrimination.

It looks like the Topix troll(s) can only control the "Judge It" icons rather than post a reasonable response. Typical and obviously a classic example of the dying, ignorant, generation of fat asses who sit posting on a thread of which is occupied by those of which they are so repulsed.

Thank you for your unreasonable response and your cheap insults. It's not unreasonable when you do it.

Were you not an idiot, you would see that.
Providing a service for someone with differing views does not violate the first amendment.
Applying your idiotic logic, I could deny you service because I find idiocy offensive.

`1. It has, any lawyer will tell you that there are two sets of rights here. Were you not an idiot, you would see that.
2. It does if it's against your religious beliefs.
3. Not to worry, you couldn't possibly offer a service that would benefit me.
