When Christian wedding vendors refuse to participate in same sex marriage, they are the sacrifices to the left's god of Equality. That's how these PC laws take away individual freedom. Where's the tolerance for Christianity?

Same sex marriage is bad because its supporters sue Christians.

When you break the law, you should expect to face legal ramifications.

They should be able to display their inner Jesus (hate) without persecution, then?

Sure, bub, sure.

Brian, should homosexual cake decorators or flower arrangers be able to deny service for traditional weddings?

Should a Catholic Florist be able to deny service for an Islamic ceremony?

Do you see how idiotic your argument is?

Immoral laws must be broken, that's the duty of every citizen. It's wrong to force Christians to participate in same sex weddings. Have a little respect for your neighbors.

How is refusing to attend a same sex wedding more hateful than suing your Christian neighbors and our states? We see who the antagonists are, they won't bother to find a vendor that want your custom.

No, it's 'wrong' for business people CHOOSE that line of work, and who are REQUIRED BY LAW to serve THE PUBLIC treat same-sex couples as second-class citizens. They cannot legally pick-and-choose who they can serve.

Yes. Have a little respect for your neighbors -- no matter WHAT their sexual identity.

So don't whine like a little bitch when your Christian buddies that own the florist shop/bakery/etc. get sued for breaking the law.

Besides, you guys secretly enjoy being the 'martyr' for your faith, dontchya?

They had a choice of "pricing it high" or saying "sorry we are busy that day or to busy to accommodate you" to get out of it but they said "oh your gay, sorry we can't/won't do that for you because you are gay". Now pricing something high could be considered price gouging so again it might fall back on only doing it to gays. So the next choice would be "sorry we are busy that day or to busy to accommodate you" and all is done, no obligations. But when you say that I won't do that for you because you are gay, well you just stuck your own dang foot in your mouth and will pay for your actions. It is discrimination no matter how you look at it.

It is bigotry. Period.

Suing? That is simply **enforcing** the law--which prohibits bigotry.

This really isn't hard.

But your inner Jesus keeps your bigotry strong, I guess.

Yep. It's really easy to avoid specific customers, if one uses one's head.

But these bigots **had** to make a **statement**.

They **had** to deliberately be insulting, and display their bigotry for all to see.

How very Jesus of them, it was too.

Like laws that prevent freedom of equality, like the anti-Constitutional stuff that YOU promote.

Actually (amazingly) in this case Skippy the Skeptic is correct.

You SHOULD care about creationist opinions. You NEED theocracy in order to accomplish your goals.

Culture works as well as religion; male/female marriage is a universal cultural constant. Please explain how everyone who doesn't support the radical redefinition of marriage is a bigot. Please list all valid reasons for keeping or changing marriage law.

Can you answer for them?

Are there other groups that you think it should be legal to discriminate against...or just homosexuals?

You're lying again since it's not even a Terran cultural constant.

Your personal cultural traditions are irrelevant. It doesn't matter if you don't wanna marry a bloke, you're not allowed to suppress the freedom of others from being allowed to do so. This is due to a significant cultural change which occurred centuries before you were born, known as the US Constitution. You have two options:

1 - Install a theocracy via military force.

2 - Move elsewhere to another theocracy. Might I suggest Iran?
