On top of discriminating against the gay couple, the restaurant didn't return the deposit? That was an extremely stupid move.

Homosexual 'marriage' is an attack on the rights of others.

A large percent of Americans find homosexual behavior to be immoral. Why should they be forced to be involved in things they find to be immoral, damaging, and contrary to their beliefs?

David, David, David, that "large percentage" that chooses to believe that homosexuality is "immoral", have every right to that belief, however, their right to that belief does not extend to using it as an excuse to violate civil law. If these good whatevers are operating or working for a business open to the public in more and more places, they don't get to blame God for THEIR choice to act like a flaming fool and they don't get to discriminate against the queer folk because they can't help but fantasize about 'em abominating and enjoying it.

They always say gay people want special rights, when in reality, the religious people are asking for religious rights to determine whether something is right or wrong. Indefinitely. They should stop trying to seek these special rights, they are never going to get them.

I hope the queers exhaust all their legal funds fighting these cases in the courts while the normal people just keep voting against queers at the polls.

Well put.
Also, people who aren't homosexuals think that queers should try to not have as much sex with children anymore as they're doing right now or try to cut down or something.
Queers are Jerry Sandusky and vice-versa.
so not hot.

Yes, we're trying to take over the world and make everyone out sex slaves. When we're done with that, we'll get bored and rig all the nuclear missiles and reactors to explode.
We're out to destroy humanity completely.

It's one of their more popular reality challenged memes. They don't seem to care that these laws are written so that they protect regardless pf sexual orientation and they have one too. What are facts to get in the way of a really good anti-gay rant? As for their self-professed right to violate the law, because God says so, they clearly haven't thought that one through. That's a be careful what you wish for, you just might get it sort of deals, because God get's to tell others that they get to discriminate against you.
