Pffft.
So much for "equality for all".
That is equality. Just as if you walked into a car dealership and they refused to sell you a car because you're white or because you're Christian. If you service the public, you can't do that.

The business did not break the law. The person, the photographer, chose not to take pictures of something she did not agree with. Why would you want to force her to?

Part of my job is to solicit new business. If my bosses told me to go to a KKK meeting, or a Hells Angels meeting, or a gay pride parade, or a Satanist church I have every right to say no. And I would say no. That would not reflect on my business, that would reflect only on me. Meaning my business never broke the law, they told me to go do it and I refused to because I chose to exercise my rights to not be forced into something I don't want to do.

I probably lose my job, but my conscience would be clear.

Poor persecuted Christians.
Thank you for your sympathy.

We've been persecuted for 2000 years, we're used to it.

"Maybe you do things that make women want to hit you."
What gives you the impression that it's happened more than once?
And why are you judging me based off your incorrect assumption?
This is why we wouldn't get along in "meat space". Because you don't take the time to listen, you just assume and think you know it all.
I don't think I know it all, but I try to, and I never will.

And others do in a variety of ways
But when one of those way is to use 'church' as an all-encompassing label in which to negatively stereotype all Christians and all Christian churches based on the actions of a handful of individuals it is pointed out that in that context it is bigoted.
Even more so when it is implied there is some hateful template followed or some inherent shared immorality based on knowing nothing about 99.99999% of the people or churches other than the fact that they consider themselves Christian
Its not like they can point to some official teaching and say because you follow that I think you are a bad person. The Bible says all sins of the flesh are equal, leave the judgement to God, and to love one another. So its not like someone can have a problem with the ideology. What they have a problem with is those who don't follow it properly. That's fine..until they start assuming that's everybody and assume it of people they don't even know
I will get to the rest of the post in a minute
Hmmm. I'd have to agree that attacking all churches based on one church isn't fair. And that we should be more specific in our critiques and discussions, certainly.

In your second paragraph, you introduced a number of ideas.

- you seem to believe there is such a thing as "an ideal Christian archetype"
- you seem to think this should be knowable to every Christian in every denomination and that some choose not to live up to it
- you use "sin" like it has meaning for all peoples. It doesn't, it's a cultural construct

I've not seen anyone on this board try to "shame" you for being "white".
As far as people go that you interact with locally, in your region...
It'd probably help if you didn't use racist or misogynistic terms, phrases or approaches when you interact with people.
We jist call out the fool's stupidity is all.

And they should be able to deny service to black people too?
If that were the law, and a gay person lived in a hate-filled small town, then they would essentially kill that individual, by refusing service everywhere, including supermarkets, gas stations, and so on.
See, this is why a theocracy is always a bad idea.
You think discrimination should be allowed to run rampant.
Yes, that's what RR believes.

So long as he is in the majority.

Same for Clearwater.

It was a mere tap.
That was RR's final position, having gone though several iterations.
The white pride folks may want to look up "iteration."
I think they use this definition:

Iteration: the number of lashes to give a disobedient slave.

Since when is taking pictures at a wedding a public service?
And please note that it's also illegal for the gay couple to discriminate against the photographer's rights.
There's no law that would defend that gay couple to say "we are gay and you have to like it and take our pictures!"
You can't win this one.

Absolutely.
If an atheist didn't want to take pictures of a Christian wedding, they have the right to say "no". Do they not?
That was the argument made by the segregationists with respect to restaurants not serving blacks.

In Christianity, the deity liked himself so much he split into "three deities"...
That's because it couldn't even tolerate it's own behavior...an I don't blame it...it even crucified itself...not really much of a sacrifice if ya ask me...it still lives ta promote more misery.
