Being Gay Is 'Death Worthy,' According to Georgia Church ...

Oh no, heterophobia does exist. Trust me when I see straight people put up signs calling for my death I do harbor a kernel of fear of those particular heterosexuals. Most heterosexuals though present me no danger and therefore I don't fear them.  (Yesterday | post #45)

Cakes bake tension between gay rights, religious objections

Religion, as a whole, has done far more harm than good throughout human history. It's been wielded as a holy edict from whichever god someone believes in to do harm to others with whom they disagree or who occupy a particular piece of land or are simply of a particular faith. The Bible, which you quote, is replete with god saying is okay for the these people to be killed and those people to be killed. There's smiting going on all over the place. The fact there was slavery in the Bible was used as the justification for slavery in many countries...includ ing our own. One could very easily argue that if there were no religion there would have been no Jews and so the holocaust might very well not have happened. The Bible is still used today as a weapon against the LGBT community so don't tell me religion is innocent. I call BS.  (Friday Apr 10 | post #72)

Well yeah. Save everyone time and hassle. Have the courage of your convictions and post it publicly so we all know where we can and can't shop. Problem solved. EZPZ lemon squeezy.  (Wednesday Apr 8 | post #20)

I still think if you don't want to serve the LGBT community or (insert name of religion(s) here) or (insert color of skin here) people or people who come from (insert a country name outside the U.S. here) you should post that outside your business so we all know in advance who will serve whom.  (Wednesday Apr 8 | post #10)

God has blessed us: Donations to Indiana pizzeria approac...

What I find interesting is that, as far as I know, this pizza shop was the only place to publicly embrace the new law which either has or is in the process of being changed. THEY choose to close because they couldn't handle the fallout from their public statement. And the big threat was 1 stupid person letting their emotions overrule their reason and making a stupid threat on Twitter. Now they never have to open again, which is probably a good thing because I don't suspect lots of people are going to eat there anymore. Of course, I still don't understand how providing pizza to a wedding party somehow befouls your faith or beliefs. That leap is too great for me to make.  (Sunday Apr 5 | post #58)

If he's looking for a welcoming state he should try Russia or perhaps Uganda or perhaps Islamic State would take him.  (Mar 23, 2015 | post #7)

And that's it isn't it? Taxpayers in these various states should be angry as hell that their governments are wasting their tax dollars on cases that they are all but certain to lose.  (Mar 20, 2015 | post #14)

And so the guy went for the queer's d*ck? You might wanna re-think that. Do straight guys normally put their mouths anywhere near another guy's d*ck?  (Mar 19, 2015 | post #18)

Who will fight for gay marriage at SCOTUS?

I think the suspect class has been long overlooked in the case of LGBT citizens and it may very well come up this time.  (Mar 18, 2015 | post #10)

Dolce&Gabbana, Elton John hashtags do battle over gay rights

I don't make enough to buy designer anything so I really couldn't care less about them as a company but I think what they said was neither true nor helpful.  (Mar 18, 2015 | post #2)

So? Plenty of countries have done pretty well with blended Capitalist/Socialist systems. There two things are not necessarily mutually exclusive.  (Mar 16, 2015 | post #110)

Family Research Council: Gay People Like Dan Savage Cause...

Right Libertarian? or Left Libertarian? I have a bit of a concern about Libertarianism in that it seems to be lacking on a few fronts, most notably a moral foundation. It seems to be either socialist or communist on the left side and anarchist on the right side. Neither of which is particularly appealing to be honest.  (Mar 13, 2015 | post #17)
