Well at least you didn't accuse me of ignoring your post again.
Your concession is noted and accepted.
Sigh. This is typical of you. You repeat yourself over and over, and then when your opponent finally gets tired of it, you claim "victory." Incredibly annoying. I could take the time to go back and respond to you, but I might as well just refer you to my earlier posts, since you simply repeated yourself.

If a person's religious beliefs can be ignored, that is immoral in and of itself.
Really? So religious beliefs take precedence over any other concern? If it is my religious belief that black people are subhuman and must be treated as such, should my beliefs be respected or ignored?

There is no drug war on alcohol, so I fail to see your point.
Yes, I meant cops are better shots. They are trained how to use guns, druggies aren't they'll just blast wildly while the cops aims, fires and kills.
Then you'll say bad cop, bad cop.
Of course you fail to see my point.

You didn't say how the baker was discriminated against, you just said that he was discriminated against because of his religion. How was he?

Their religion was ignored and they were forced to make cakes for marriages they didn't condone.

This is just part of the story, which I don't think you read, from the link you provided:

"A Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a gay couple has been given an ultimatum by a judge; serve gay weddings or face fines.

1. Administrative law judge Robert N. Spence found Friday that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, Colo. violated the law when he turned away David Mullins, 29, and Charlie Craig, 33, from his shop last year.

In his written decision, Spence ordered that Phillips "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples, or face financial penalties, and cited Colorado state law that prohibits businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.

"At first blush, it may seem reasonable that a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it chooses," Spence wrote. "This view, however, fails to take into account the cost to society and the hurt caused to persons who are denied service simply because of who they are."

Mullins and Craig married in Massachussets and had originally gone to Masterpiece in July 2012 because they wanted to a cake for their wedding reception in Colorado. When Phillips refused, the pair went to the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission (CCRC) on their behalf.

According to the complaint, Phillips told the couple that the store policy was to deny service to customers who wished to order baked goods for a same-sex wedding, based on his religious beliefs.

Phillips told the men, "I'll make you birthday cakes, shower cakes, sell you cookies and brownies, I just don't make cakes for same-sex weddings."

The judge's decision states in its Finding of Facts that Phillips believes creating same-sex wedding cakes would be "displeasing God and acting contrary to the teachings of the Bible."
In concluding that Masterpiece Cakeshop acted unlawfully, a CCRC investigation also showed evidence that Phillips was willing to bake a cake for the "marriage" of a pair of dogs, but not for two women...."

To repeat: "Phillips was willing to bake a cake for the "marriage" of a pair of dogs, but not for two women...."

The baker was just a religiously bigoted piece of slime, who was found in violation of state law. As far as I'm concerned, he got off easy.

Sexuality can be chosen?

Did you "choose" to be straight? If so, why?

Isn't isn't the homosexuality that's a sin, it's the homosexual sex. It's as much a sin as heterosexual sex outside of marriage.
This is something I think you don't quote grasp.
<quoted text>
Wrong.
The New Testament's "sexual immorality" is relevant to all sexually immoral acts, of which homosexuality is one.
You people think the Bible focuses on homosexuals, you're totally wrong.
<quoted text>
As stated above, it's about ALL sexually immoral acts.
<quoted text>
Red herring.
You don't understand that verse, either. Lot spent too much time around the creature comforts of life in Sodom, his testimony was tarnished. But he kept his faith in God and God delivered him. Twice.
Also, there was no laws about sexual relationships until Leviticus 18.

I freely admit that the goddess and her consort are myth. But it's what's behind the myth that's important. When someone says, "All acts of love, compassion and pleasure gain favor with the Goddess," some Pagans will claim that to be a literal truth, while I choose to look at the message behind the myth. And I'll still raise a toast to Aphrodite and Dionysus every full moon, because 1) I like ritual, and 2) I see it as a way of putting out some positive energy into the cosmos.
But you have told me in a declarative way to pray to your Goddess.

I knew better than to think you were forcing your religion and/or your Goddess on to me.

I'm smart enough to know better.

You? Apparently not.

That's how it goes for losers, timn.

You say that.

Then I respond to your that.

Then you "get tired of it all".

So you want atheists to be burned alive at the stake and have their heads cut off. Just like in what you call the good old days.

Shut up, porter. You are such a moron.

Nonsense.

There's no religion that would condone that.

Except maybe Darwinism.

Got off easy?!

What would you want to do, execute him for not agreeing with gay marriage?

Did you read the CCRC investigation file? It's a PDF. You should read it. The claim of Phillips making a cake for a dog wedding is strictly the lesbians word. There is NO evidence for that claim.
