For a guy (at least I think you are male) who refers to gay people as "fking Fa$$ots" you sure spend a lot of time here. If I hatet snakes I would not visit a reptile house at a zoo. So if you hate us, why are you here so much?

Great. So you and this wedding vendor can agree I'm going to he'll and that I have the same right to marry my chosen partner as you.

I have no problem being condemned to hell as long as you give me equal rights while I'm in this life.

Your religion sounds awfully hateful. "Be a fake heterosexual or burn in hell."

Not much of a choice.

A "degree in computer programming?" Wow, that's a LOT of degrees, considering each language and each application of said language is it's own degree. You really suck at lying. But then, you do have a book of lies that you follow as if it was fact, so it's not like you had any better role models.

Gays do the same thing. How on freakin earth can you rationalize placing a child into a ss household with two men that totally abrogated the ability to produce a child and could NEVER qualify as a mother. Duhhhhhh.
Um, because they raise kids just as well as any other couple, that's why. Why is it that almost all actual child abuse is done by straight people? Why is it that the child is more likely to be molested by a close, straight, relative than a perfect stranger? Why is it that straight christians are the ones most responsible for killing their own children?

Since when is mandatory procreation required to be in a relationship? Who has EVER made the claim that they are qualified to be a Mother? Who states that a Mother is required to raise a child? If Mothers are so DAMN important to the raising of a child, why do some abandon those very same children?

There are children who are raised in households without fathers and do just fine in society. There are children who are raised in households without mothers and do just fine in society.......and there are children raised by both a mother and a father that have issues in society........it's not about the parents or a mother or a father, but how much attention is put into the raising of that child!!!

That's what you don't get!!!

Not a choice. Religious bigotry and ignorance are choices, but sexual orientation is not. If you believe it is, than you're obviously a self-repressing bisexual. If you were gay or straight, you'd know better than to think it was a choice, wouldn't you?

Please enumerate the "special rights" that anyone is asking for. You DO realize that "special" suggests that the rights gay folks are seeking are somehow given only to them, right?

<quoted text>away from all the other deviations of 'consensual' sex.
Please give us some evidence that gay couples don't engage in consensual sex. And then give us evidence that straight couples ONLY engage in it.(you don't know what the term "consensual" means, do you?)

Really?? Do you find gay sex SO alluring and enticing that you believe that ALL the straight people in the world will suddenly turn gay, quit having sex together, stop reproducing, and the human race will become extinct?? Really???

I can see why you're so terrified of gay people. You must spend every second of your life afraid that you'll suddenly start having gay sex and you won't be able to stop. That must be a horrible way to live!!

So, in your world, straight couples that cannot procreate together aren't really a couple?

Wow. That's harsh. I suspect a LOT of straight couples would disagree with there....

Actually, there are many children raised by single parents and gay couples already. So ... your point is lacking in evidence and validity.

If a wedding VENDOR can refuse service to gays, why not restaurants? Why not grocery stores? Why not mortgage agencies? There's no room for a conscience clause in public accommodation law. These people are not churches
It won't stop at gays. If a religious exemption is granted for this, rest assured they will then want legal protection to discriminate against Jews and Muslims and the rest of their shopping list.

It never ceases to amaze me how unaware these idiots are when they draw these pointless lines in the sand.
Did they quiz their rental applicants before to see if either (or both) of them had been married before?? You know what Jesus said about that, right?? ADULTERY!! Bad, bad, BAD!!!
The good news is that it appears there's HUGE demand in Annapolis for trolleys at weddings. That means it won't take long for someone else that's NOT an ignorant fool to start up a wedding trolley business and finish putting the bigoted company out of business. If there's really fifty grand a year in business to be had,*someone* will do it!
Good times, good times....
I'll put up $500 to bet he's served agnostics and atheists.

That's how conservatives and republicans operate. For one, they'd serve ADULTERERS and the DIVORCED. They'd serve MURDERERS. They'd serve POLYGAMISTS.
They don't care about polygamy. They cared *as soon as* gay marriage became an issue.
They don't care about violence in film. They cared *as soon as* twenty schoolkids were killed and they don't want their guns taken away.
The conservatives are *OPPORTUNISTS* when it comes to what they "care" about, and *EXTREMELY* manipulative about it.
I can find reasons to criticize both progressives (quite heavily) and conservatives (quite viciously), but on this topic, progressives win. They are at least very, very consistent about what they care about; it doesn't change to manipulate the point of view of others. With conservatives, it does, unfortunately.
Time for a social media blitz to urge a boycott.

Since the petition to deport Piers Morgan because he supports an assault rifle ban hit the White house minimum in less than 12 hours I think we can do something about the rest of this guy's annual income.
