We oppose forcing Christians to participate in same sex weddings under threat of fines and lawsuits. They are starting with Christians, your group is next.
I did not ask who they turned down. I asked you a simple question that you dodged so here is your chance to answer it again.

Do people have the same right to turn down a mixed race wedding? A Black wedding? A Asian Wedding? A Yankee wedding? Where do you draw the line on what is right for people to turn down?

And I say again and even give you the link;

A broad definition of marriage includes those that are monogamous, polygamous, same-sex and temporary.

<quoted text>^^^Many same sex marriage supporters use ad hominem arguments (especially defamation) because no rational argument supports their opinion.
Bitch, I use ad hominem because you are a bigot. And I dfo have a rational argument to support my position, equal protection. You have only your bigotry.

No, you aren't you filthy lair. Denying people equal rights isn't "moderation".
Saying people should be denied equal rights is far worse than any name calling. There is no nice way to tell people they aren't fully human.

85% Think Christian Photographer Has Right to Turn Down Same-Sex Wedding Job
Americans draw a fine line when it comes to respecting each other’s rights. If a Christian wedding photographer who has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage is asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, 85% of American Adults believe he has the right to say no. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only eight percent (8%) disagree even as the courts are hearing such challenges.

Screw 'em. They are offering a service to the public. Their bigotry shouldn't get special consideration because it's based on Bronze Age myth.

Even it that's true, so what? You are appealing to tradition. A logical fallacy.

I'm curious, did your parents divorce because they hated you?

Interracial marriage wasn't? When there were specific laws that prohibited it? You don't follow history, do you?
Sorry. If you hold a business license, you agree to follow ALL laws and statutes that govern it. If as a business owner you need to break the law based on your religious beliefs, then you need to find another line of work.
We don't create laws that harm millions of law-abiding Americans simply to protect the "right" of a few business owners to discriminate against them.
That would be insane.
And don't forget, the *only* actual argument given against inter racial marriage in Loving v VA was that god didn't want the races to mix. S

I could say the same thing about the Queen but, being an American, I don't give a rat's as to what crap you might be stuck with, supposing you really are in the UK.

Considering your inordinate amount of concern with American legislators I doubt you are a UK citizen.

Then you say it DOES support marriage, ALL marriage...

Biology does not support any kind of abstract concept, no artificial construct that has to do with laws that are taught, laws that differ from state to state.

Geez, you are trying to mix biology with morals and kitteh don't play that game.

In Russia, gays don't have free speech. In Hollywood, "over a third of LGBT performers, as well as some non-LGBT performers, had witnessed “disrespectful” treatment toward these minorities." Which is prejudice and which is like High School?

The problem with same sex marriage, it harms gay rights by suing our Christian neighbors instead of fighting those who actually do great harm.

What do you see as more harmful. Being raised by a same sex couple or being raised only by a divorced/widowed father or mother?

You're ignorance of transgenders and their issues is staggering. The family in the clip are more normal than you and I for one would welcome them as neighbors. I don't think you should be allowed near children. You sound like an old southerner defending slavery in the 1920s or a 1930s reactionary complaining about women getting the vote.

And while I'm here....
Religion = superstition

Same Sex Marriage will change society, in a very big and very positive way. It is good for America and the world, there are absolutely no downsides to any part of it. All of humanity will benefit from Same Sex Marriage. "Straight" people will be able to accept that if they want to mess around in a gay situation it is perfectly OK to do so since everyone around them is doing so. No longer will people feel guilty because of a little experimentation and then end up going insane trying to fight the desires for the rest of their lives. "They" also used to claim the earth was flat. How did that work out?
I agree, same sex marriage would change society a big way, but I don't assume it will be all positive. There will be negative affects too. They would outweigh the good.

There's no law banning straight people from same sex marriage. Business partners might decide to marry in order to shield corporate assets from inheritance tax. Some people marry for reasons other than sexual gratification. I don't see how that benefits society as a whole.

Male/female marriage supports the value that our children learn to be responsible for their children, to raise their kids with the child's mother and father. Same sex marriage opposes that value.

Keeping marriage one man and one woman has nothing to do with homosexuality; it has to do with human reproductive biology. Natural laws demand either societies help children learn to be men and women or go extinct. That's why there's no copy of any pre21st century same sex marriage law, extinction.

Same sex marriage is so harmful, many gays defend marriage defined as husband and wife.

I've made no judgement and I've criticized neither.

Consider the case of a divorce, where a gay dad remarries and wants the court to give him custody because the child's mother is a single mother. Then, he wants his partner to adopt the child, even though the child still has a mother and a father. Now consider, what if the court is forced to consider past cultural bias against same sex marriage and make their judgement on social justice instead of the child's welfare. Which do you see as more harmful?

Which do you think more likely, same sex couples greatly influencing custody, inheritance and community property law toward making up for past discrimination or conservatives banning single parent custody? Can you name even one Republican Senator who opposes same sex adoption?
