It's refreshing to see the good, decent people of America fighting for their rights in the face of tyrannical oppression by homosexuals.

Looks like there are lots more lawsuits to come. And many more wins for the GLBT community.

And these hate bills DON'T just target Gays and Lesbians.....they target adulterers, fornicators, divorcees, pregnant unwed women, Muslims and ANYONE one wants to claim to discriminate all in the name of their deeply held religious beliefs, but ONLY if it's one that these Republicans claim like Evangelistic Fundamentalist!!!

These so called Protect Freedom of Religious Beliefs Acts are just sanctioned discrimination laws and EVERYONE knows that who live in the "REAL" world.........funny how it's NOT discrimination as long as it is done by a loving Christian......yet when they themselves are being discriminated against.....we are flat out persecuting them......what a bunch of hypocrites!!!

If these so called Christians would just follow the laws and policies of the State and Federal Government.......they WOULDN'T be facing the legal issues they are!!!

By the way, this is the same sort of disguise that DOMA was passed under and it's taken us damn near 20 years to get rid of it!!!

Big words there, Buford1. At least hanging on the gay threads for six years has increased your vocabulary. It's just parroting drivel, but it sure makes you feel like big stuff, doesn't it?

Good, honest and decent Americans AREN'T out there trying to DISCRIMINATE against idiots like you, but maybe we should because it is obvious that you fail to understand what Freedom is all about!!!

Actually, it didn't. It allowed to you to discriminate against anyone for any reason just by citing "deeply held religious beliefs". But the intent was clear.

Thankfully Ohio decided to drop their attempts to pass a similar bill. Here's a link to that story: http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2014/...

It's hard to stop scared stupid people when they think they're being threatened. And by "stop", I mean "educate". Learning to not be afraid of everything is no fun, but screaming and panicking is SO much fun!!

People just LOVE their stupid, don't they?

Discriminating against gays was the impetus to pass the law. The broader implications were simply the icing on the cake. But no one doubts the impetus.

Actually, if they would just follow the tenets of THEIR OWN FAITH, they wouldn't have these problems, either.

Jesus would *NEVER* have thought it was okay to turn someone away from a business, for any reason. Unlike his followers, Jesus was all about loving and accepting everyone and not judging.

Hence the existence of Democrats.

And I'm making a note of ALL these annoying ads on Topix, so I can boycott the sponosrs.

What browser are you using? I've got Firefox, and they have add-ons that block the ads.

I have 5 pc's here (TOO many). I'm using Chrome on this pc, But if I use Chrome or any other browser on my PC #2, the ads never show up at all. But I've never been able to figure out why. This one is the fastest one I have.

None of this would be happening otherwise.

None of it.

You have hit the nail on the head.

WHEN did all this start to go down? OH, WEIRD, around the time that marriage equality took a strong foothold in the United States and the antigay saw that they COULDN'T stop it. This was in DIRECT response to that, nothing more, nothing less.

The bill do nothing *but* target gay people, and the antigay lie about it because never, never, never, never, never do they tell the truth about anything, never.

This move, even in failure serves to further the creation of a platform plank which, regardless of what it's real action or intent, will be called the "Religious Freedom" plank.

It's support numbers will be fed partially by the unconscious competitiveness and narcissism of it's adherents by oferring an acceptably grandiose explanation for why they, their sect, their business, etc., aren't doing as well as they imagine that they should be: It's THEM out to get me/us.

Other than Arizona, 12 other states have attempted or are trying to attempt some version of this nonsense. Arizona's is the only one to get this close to enactment. Seven have already been stopped at some point in the process, four states are still trying and there's a ballot initiative in the signature process in the other. I'm pretty sure that the Arizona spectacle will be the last nail in the coffin for these shenanigans.

Don't be so sure. They'll go back and lick their wounds. Then they'll try to slip it through again when no one is looking.
