4 GOP candidates sign anti-gay marriage pledge

Thank you, that was short, but pointless, and everyone here is stupider for having read it.  (16 hrs ago | post #251)

Court: Baker who refused gay wedding cake can't cite beliefs

Or, they agree with the lower court and think a hearing is unnecessary. Regardless, the cause was not sufficient to excite 4 justices to take the case. That, in and of itself, says somethingMcFly, refusing the couple service on the basis of their sexual orientation violates the couples' free exercise of religion. You are an idiot.  (17 hrs ago | post #1159)

Kentucky clerk seeks Supreme Court help to deny gay marri...

She may have a suit against them in the end. Her resulting liability is huge.  (17 hrs ago | post #27)

She does realize that they were the ones how legalized it in the first place, right?  (Saturday | post #6)

Same-sex marriage fight turns to clerk who refuse licenses

Only your opinion that upholding constitutional principles is a bad thing. Legislatures are expressly forbidden by the first amendment from making laws respecting an establishment of religion. Free speech, including porn, is protected by the first amendment, even if you find it to be offensive. You know, I don't have enough time to fully articulate why your position is idioticJust when I think you couldn't say anything dumber, you come up with this doosey. The ACLU is funded by members, and by grants from private foundations. Even Fox News came to that conclusion, idiot.  (Saturday | post #3611)

Actually, they do a great deal to preserve fundamental liberties, even when those liberties aren't popular. You are an idiot.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #3516)

Yes, you are a weak minded individual who is susceptible to propaganda.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #3513)

Good luck with that. As for jail, I'll believe it when I see it. I suspect their deeply held religious beliefs would vanish in an instant if it meant exchanging their cushy $80K job for a jail cellTheir proposal is acceptableI have no idea, save for the fact that it will, almost certainly, be Darwin Award worthy materialActually, he will be setting up the path to the irrelevance of these infantile religious freedom defenses, wherein there is no threat to the religious freedom of those making that claimThey may have a short term win, but they will inherit a see of legal losses.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #3510)

Give it time. When they offer her the option of compliance or serving time in jail, I think the court order will become stunningly effective.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #3504)

Actually, that is a huge determining factor. it means that she is fighting this as an individual, and not acting in her official capacity. It also means that she does not have the legal mandate or assistance of the countyCan I interest you in a bridge in Brooklyn? I can get you very fair termsThey can't seek funds from the county if they are not a party to the litigation. They would have to bring their motion against Mrs. Davis and Liberty Counsel. If successful, those parties would have to petition, or sue, the county seeking reimbursement.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #3500)

Court: Baker who refused gay wedding cake can't cite beliefs

Finally, you admit the truth about yourself. Have you come up with a single way in which providing the service would actually infringe upon the baker's religious freedom yet, or are you still dumber than a rock?  (Friday Aug 28 | post #1079)

Colo. gay discrimination alleged over wedding cake

He is required to provide his services to anyone who seeks them, and not to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, idiotThe government invited him to comply with the law. In fact, they didn't even fine him, or place him in jail for his criminal action. Jack was the idiot who elected to shutter that portion of his business in order to comply. Compliance with the law was never optional, idiotNo, it isn't. Were you not an idiot, you would understand that.  (Friday Aug 28 | post #29364)

No, Wondering, every court he has appeared in has come to that conclusion as well.  (Thursday Aug 27 | post #29345)

She can attempt to apply those fees back to the county, but the county can argue that they had no dog in this fight, as proven by the fact that she obtained her own legal counsel. Such as it is. She's getting very bad legal advice, and has no legal leg to stand upon. As she is learning one court at a time.  (Thursday Aug 27 | post #3470)
