An Annapolis company whose old-fashioned trolleys are iconic in the city's wedding scene has abandoned the nuptial industry rather than serve same-sex couples.

Not sure where all that came from, but you have some real true demented judgemental thinking happening there. You should see a counselour or a specialist, just saying.
A religious bigot calling me judgmental. What a surprise!
NOT!

Is this a thread about abortion? NO! But you sure waste a lot of time and space on here passing judgement on us for the abortions HETEROSEXUALS are getting.

Take your demented judgmental crap and look in the mirror.

You're a fraud and you know it.

That's taking the "suffer the little children to come unto me" a bit extreme.

Thanks for showing that you really don't care what happens to these children after they are born except for your not wanting them raised in a SS household.

You're a sick twisted fraud.

Now can we please get back onto the topic of the thread?

Of course you won't. Deflecting from the topic is your favorite tactic here on Topix.

PLEASE read those two sentences again.

Then maybe you'll understand why conservatives like you are so clueless and an embarrassment to this nation.

You remind me of "luv sarah palin' claiming Fox didn't fire Sarah; they just didn't renew her contact!

In pro sports when your contract isn't renewed your still out of a job and fired.

The guy is refusing wedding services for everyone now.

He didn't mind making money of adulterers, thieves, adulterers and fornicators. He's not the saint or martyr you think he is.

He's doing this so he gets lots of attention at church now. Just like the priest Jesus criticized for the nice clean cup on the outside that never had the inside washed.

We'll see if they go under. I am betting they don't seeing as they always have a line waiting for carriage rides in our beautiful historic city. I've never once seen them wanting for business.
Wait until we start doing what blacks did at lunch counters.

I urge every gay organization in the Mid Atlantic to book events with this guy. Then inform him the day before they are a gay group.
If he refuses he's violating State laws in Public Accommodation.

You types would never try to refuse service to a black person based on Bible passages (and yes I have found many verses that would support it).

Your "religious freedom" claims are an excuse to behave shamefully before God. Nothing more.

I worked at a veterinary hospital, and we spayed (not "spaded") numerous dogs & cats for owners who knew they were pregnant at the time. It's a very common occurrence.
So did I.

NS is a fraud. And a hypocrite.

And an embarrassment to those who identify as Christians who don't sit in self righteous sanctimonious judgement like NS does.

(BTW isn't NS the same one who had to leave CA barbecue they were defrauding homeowners in their mortgage scam?)

Because NS is trying to hijack another gay thread.

They know they have nothing of value to add to this discussion so they insert red herrings.

I read it that you are pissed because they are refusing service. They are not obligated to extend a service they no longer offer. Right or wrong, moral or immoral, it is his business and he is exercising his legal right. He has done nothing illegal. The article even states same, there is no legal action any one can take against him or his business.
You are partially correct. Which is why I am calling for gays and lesbians to book non wedding events with him and not inform him till the day of the event they are gay or lesbians.

THEN he is subject to criminal sanctions if he refuses service.

<quoted text>
This will come to pass the Bible tells us so. that in the end days Christians will be discriminated against and killed for his name. I will die proudly knowing that I serve God and Jesus and the Holly Spirit. When I die i'll raise my head up in heaven and get to live there for ever. When you die being that you lived a life of sin you'll raise your head up in hell and burn for ever. So i'll take dying in the name of God any day over telling you that what your doing is alright in the eyes of my Lord cause it's not The bible clearly states this over and over and you can scream all you want that God loves Homosexual's. Which he does God loves everyone but you have to ask his forgiveness for living in sin meaning being gay a murder or doing anything else which is sinful.
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Here are some verses for you to read they tell what God thinks about Gay's.
And here are two for you.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 5:11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

As a Christian people like you have made it your mission in life to persecute you might also want to meditate on Matthew 25:31-46

Matthew 25:31-46 (New International Version)

And all of this affects you directly how? Please explain?
Based on your logic he should be required to continue to offer wedding services, because he offered the service in the past, and it may have included divorcees, adulterers, etc (you have no evidence to prove that is a fact, it is an assumption on your part). That is so kind of you to dictate the services a business offers.
To answer your first question, as a Christian AND a gay man I find his using Jesus to treat people in a way Jesus never would, quite offensive.

And you have twisted my "logic" I've never claimed he was doing anything illegal. And I never was trying to dictate what services he should offer. But thanks for lying about it. You certainly are proving you and he are kindred spirits. I was simply pointing out that he's a hypocrite and wants his 15 minutes of fame.

He's using his religion to behave in a way his religion says we shouldn't behave.

Just like you are trying to do. You don't support SSM fine, don't get one. Just like people who oppose polygamy do.

But don't try to use Jesus to justify ignoring that in this country ALL citizens are to be treated equally under the law. For that matter the New Testament even speaks of doing this and it doesn't portray it as appropriate behavior for a real Christian.

What service? A tour around our beautiful historic city? He has already stated, had you read the article, he has no issue with other services he offers to gays, it is only weddings he refuses to be a part of. A service he longer offers to anyone; gays, blacks, whites, straight, yellow, illegal alien, neanderthals, etc.
I love your logic here:

" had you read the article, he has no issue with other services he offers to gays, it is only weddings he refuses to be a part of." Because of his "problem" with gays he's made his position quite clear. Next you'll be trying to sell me the Key Bridge.

Maybe you should check how many times your mom "accidentally" dropped you on your head.

I see the irony in his post too. People are so comfortable eating things, but when they realize where what they eat comes from, and how it's harvested and prepared, they ALWAYS get all "grossed" out. Many become vegetarians, yeah, like it's actually different. lol
