Guess your previous post # 3037 about leaving this thread to whine about religious liberty in more appropriate threads was just another of your lies, huh Brian?

It's not a restriction of religious liberty because running a business is not an act of worship.
Brian_G wrote:
Could they compel atheists as well as Christians to attend these ceremonies?
The law applies to BUSINESSES, not individuals, Brian. No business owner, whether professing a religious faith or none is above the law.
Brian_G wrote:
What kind of freedom is that?
Do you want to bring back slavery and segregation too since the prohibition against them also impacts the religious liberty some Christians cited back then as justification for why both were allowed? You're essentially advocating Christians (or any religious group) should be allowed to discriminate against anyone for any reason as long as they cite their religious beliefs as justification. Which ignores the fact the US has worked to eradicate such discrimination against minorities for the very reason they were being abused by the majority.

Another lie. But based on your advocacy, religion would become the keys to the kingdom for bigots to practice their bigotry against powerless minority groups.

Look, stupid, fundies don't have the right to refuse service to interracial wedding rituals, either, or would NOI shop owners. Their bigotry doesn't get special consideration because it's based on Bronze Age superstition.
The issue isn't "attending a ceremony", it's providing commercial services.

Nor do they have the right to refuse service to Jews, Christians, Episcopalians, or Pentecostals.

Do you see how a denial of service on religious grounds means projecting your religious views on your clients? Do you see how that infringes upon the religious freedom of the client?

I suppose you don't, because you have long proven yourself to be an imbecile.

Please explain how forcing Christians to attend same sex wedding rituals isn't about "religious liberty"? By "same rules" you mean it would be legal to force atheists to attend too? Where's the tolerance when it comes to suing Christian wedding vendors?

The issue is religious freedom; no Christian has been sued for refusing to service an interracial marriage. The issue isn't race, the issue is religious freedom and the fundamental nature of marriage. Interracial marriage has always been practiced, even the bible describes interracial marriages. Same sex marriage has never existed in written law before the 21st century.

Forcing Christians to attend same sex wedding rituals destroys the concept of religious freedom. They would stand for an atheist's right to not attend a religious ceremony; why would you force Christians to attend a religious ceremony?

Yes, even an atheist has the right to refuse to attend a religious service. Forcing religious attendance is bad; that's why same sex marriage is bad.

The issue isn't freedom and tolerance; the issue is rewriting marriage laws for everyone to celebrate homosexuality and sex segregation where previously all marriage has been sex integrated and diverse. You stand for segregation and keeping marriage one man and one woman is about freedom and tolerance.

^^^This is untrue, I've always written there is nothing wrong with homosexuals or homosexuality. It's Skeptic who writes of "homosexual hate". I'm trying to argue to reason, not to ad hominem irrationality and defamation.

Same sex marriage is bad because it harms homosexuals more than any other group. If you care about gays, know every gay was born of male/female union.

Do you have a point with that?

You do know that lesbians can bear children without the male being present, right?

We don't need the male. We just need a farmer to milk him. For now. We'll find a way to procreate without males eventually but for now, we'll keep you around.

How does providing a service for a same sex union (flowers, cake, etc). in any way deny religious freedom to the vendor? Be specific.

The vendor isn't being "forced to attend a same sex wedding ritual", Brian. They're being asked to provide they goods and services purport to be in business to provide to the general public. Running a business is not an act of worship so no religious liberty is involved.
Brian_G wrote:

Discrimination is based on the characteristic of those being discriminated against, Brian, not the characteristics of those inflicting the discrimination. Whether a perpetrator of discrimination has religious beliefs or not is irrelevant.

Where's the Christian's obedience to their own scripture that commands them to obey civil authorities and civil laws?

No, the issue is compliance with anti-discrimination law.

Probably because most of the Christians who would have done so lived in the past and have died off. However, you're willfully stupid if you think there weren't Christians in the eras of slavery and segregation who would have refused to provide goods and services to blacks. After all, Brian, who do you think passed anti-miscegenation laws in the first place? It wasn't black people.
Brian_G wrote:

There are Jews and Christians that believe the bible story of David and Jonathan is that of two men in love who were married in accordance with Jewish wedding ritual. Who are you to crap on their religious beliefs, Brian?

Another of your many lies, Brian.
Brian_G wrote:

How so? The Christians aren't being told they have to change their religious beliefs. They aren't being forced to marry a person of the same sex. Running a business isn't an act of worship Brian.

And et no one but you is making this claim, Brian. AS usual, you're just pulling sh!t out of your own ass.
Brian_G wrote:

So if the same sex couple were being married by a judge and not in a "religious ceremony", you're saying the Christians would have no problem then providing goods and services?

Actually, breaking the law is what's bad, Brian. Especially when doing so Christians also willfully ignore the command of their Christian new testament to obey civil authorities and civil laws. If they don't even follow the commands of their own religious scripture, how can it be a violation of their religious beliefs?
Brian_G wrote:

Just because gays are allowed to marry doesn't mean straight people are required to marry someone of the same sex. They can still marry in the same manner they always have.

If diversity and integration are so important to you, Brian, why aren't you whining that marriage law should require interracial marriage to make all marriages racially integrated and diverse?
Brian_G wrote:

You stand for bigotry and intolerance because you advocate discrimination against and infringement of the fundamental rights of gays when allowing them to marry has NO effect on straight people WHATSOEVER.
