Lawmakers Consider Gay Discrimination Policies

And yet, you are the only one advocating for fellow citizens to be treated as second-class citizens with less than equal protection under the law. You are in no position to comment upon anyone else's "moral compass" as you seem not to be equipped with one at allIt also means not arguing against equal rights for fellow AmericansNo, that would be an idiotic thing to do, because your beliefs are completely irrelevant to the transaction. If you want a beer at a gay bar (which does beg the question of whether you are actually a self-loathing closet case), why would you not say, I'd like a beer pleaseThey would probably look at you and say that's nice. It's good to know you are an idiot. What brand of beer would you like, bigot boyFreedom of association guarantees that the government will not intervene to prevent peaceable assembly. It does not give an unrestricted right to discriminate in a place of public accommodation. Only a very stupid person would claim that it did.  (5 hrs ago | post #6309)

An East Tennessee store owner put up a 'No Gays Allowed'

Yes, Wondering there is no law, in 60% of the states, to protect stupid people from themselvesSimple, I would hear a few words out of your mouth and promptly leave. If you really are as stupid as you have portrayed yourself to be, you cannot keep your idiocy to yourself. It's really pretty simple, Wondering. Gay people's money is every bit as much currency as anyone else's. The point of a business is to generate a profit. Only an imbecile allows their bigotry to get in the way of their business.  (5 hrs ago | post #109)

Next gay marriage fight: religious exemptions

Funny, I read it as dementia. A justice of the US Supreme Court increasingly using made up words is truly cause for alarm.  (5 hrs ago | post #7654)

Supreme Court extends gay marriage nationwide

They made it up. Ironically, they don't understand that same sex marriage bans actually constituted segregation.  (5 hrs ago | post #567)

No, twit, they struck unconstitutional restrictions banning same sex marriage. Only a fool would claim otherwise. The result is that same sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, but that in no sense means that it is mandated, as no one is forced to enter into such a marriage. When you say things like this you just call into question you intelligence, which was already dubious at best.  (5 hrs ago | post #566)

The truth hurts, Alan. Both you, and Respect, are idiots whether I say so or not.  (6 hrs ago | post #6305)

Actually, assuming your assertion is correct, in 60% of the states business owners who wish to act against their own self interest may do so. Most, not being stupid like you, will notNo need. I wouldn't frequent a business you ran if my life depended upon it. I don't care to associate with bigoted idiots like yourself.  (6 hrs ago | post #106)

Clerk to quit, cites 'moral conviction'

I read you posts because you are weak minded and easy to bait. You can always be counted up to make a fool of yourself, since you are utterly incapable of assembling or presenting an on topic post on any topic. This clerk did the right thing by quitting. Other will refuse the licenses and cost their jurisdictions a lot of money on lawsuits they will lose. Grow up, kiddo.  (6 hrs ago | post #50)

Most business owners are not idiots, and as such do not need a law to instruct them to serve all clients as they realize that serving a greater number of people generates a larger profit. Only bigoted idiots like yourself require a law to serve all customers and maximize their business's potential earnings.  (7 hrs ago | post #104)

Clerk to quit, cites 'moral conviction'

Funny, you are the one arguing that religious business owners should be able to put their beliefs over and above those of their customers, when the beliefs of neither are relevant to the business transaction at hand. I find it hysterical that you claim ever to have believed in religious freedom, when your arguments specifically argue against such individual freedom.  (7 hrs ago | post #47)

Why I'll be voting 'No' to same-sex marriage, even though...

You are an idiot. The US Supreme Court has no relevance in Ireland, which is what the article addresses. They have no jurisdiction there. In the US, marriage has been ruled a fundamental right by the US Supreme Court on 14 Separate occasions. http://www.afer.or g/blog/video-14-su preme-court-ruling s-on-marriage/ It has separately ruled that fundamental rights may not be put to a vote. "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials, and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette https://www.law.co rnell.edu/supremec ourt/text/319/624 You are an ignorant idiot, and a troll.  (8 hrs ago | post #3539)

Is Polygamy the Next Gay Marriage?

Then you are perfect for each other, as you have no argument that it is the next same sex marriage.  (8 hrs ago | post #10434)

First and foremost, what does this childish assertion have to do with the topic at hand? Secondly, they declared those laws to be unconstitutional. Why do you defend unconstitutional laws? Why do you argue for fellow citizens to be unconstitutionally classified as second-class citizens with less then equal protection of the lawsSorry, kiddo, they merely deemed same sex marriage bans to be unconstitutional. Allowing same sex couples equality under the law to marry in no way disenfranchises them. The same sex marriage bans did thatThe president doesn't sit on the court, idiot.  (8 hrs ago | post #3537)
