Child of Lesbian Moms Says Same-Sex Marriage Is Wrong

You are the one who is confused. My point was that people can have sex because they're horny, not because they are turned on by whomever or whatever they're having sex with.  (6 hrs ago | post #631)

Exactly. Or you can even say that you're too busy to take on the job at this time. You don't have to pull out your Bible and rub the customer's nose in it. There are a thousand inoffensive ways to turn away business. You can even discriminate in hiring as long as you don't provide the real reason. The other guy just happened to be a better fit for the organization. Or we no longer need to fill that position.  (6 hrs ago | post #119)

I had a colonoscopy today. To prep, the doctor ordered me to watch a full day of Fox News. I said, no thanks! Give me the gallon of laxative.  (6 hrs ago | post #118)

Ben Carson Warns Gay Couples Against Pushing Bakers: They...

If a Christian can find a passage supporting the notion that gays should be turned away, they have made their own version of the Bible. It would be more accurate to say that people believe the Bible means whatever they want it to mean. There's no point in reading the Bible because they will believe what they want anyway.  (11 hrs ago | post #66)

No, you still haven't got it. The "B" is for bisexual. These people are attracted to others of both sexes. One does not have to be attracted to either a man or a woman in order to have sex. One only needs to be horny enough. Need proof? Just think of all the times you've had sex with your hand. I guess that would make you homosexual (or at least an extreme narcissist).  (11 hrs ago | post #625)

Except I haven't diagnosed anyone on any condition. I've merely pointed out hte homophobic nature of the attitudes you express on Topix. That doesn't require a degree in psychologyYou didn't really just play the "I have gay friends" card did you? Oh you did. LOLOLOLMy that's broad-minded of youAnd that last statement outs your homophobic attitudes. The mere fact that you brought it up in juxtaposition to your other statements is a cheap rhetorical trick.  (11 hrs ago | post #624)

You need to broaden your reading. Indiana's RFRA is inherently different, as has been well-documented on many news sites. Of course, the main stream media is, indeed, lame. And many "journalists " have lazily parroted the right-wing talking points. So you may have to read more than one article. I've explained what's different in several other posts. I'm not going to cast more pearls of wisdom before swine. If you're interested in learning, go back a couple of pages and read my posts. Or just google it.  (11 hrs ago | post #101)

Santorum: Race is Identity, Gay is Sexual Conduct

Do what any good "Christian " would do: Marry a woman, have lots of kids, and stop at the rest area on the way home from work. Gives new meaning to "flat tire."  (16 hrs ago | post #385)

All I know is that everything you've posted is somewhere between misleading and outright false. Most of the media has reported the false talking point that Indiana's RFRA is the same as the federal RFRA of 1993. In fact, they are completely different in purpose and in effect. The federal RFRA was enacted in response to SCOTUS rulings that prevented religious groups from conducting traditional ceremonies. One of the more controversial was a group of Indians that practiced a traditional ritual involving peyote. SCOTUS ruled that public policy (drug laws) overrode the First Amendment freedom of religion. As a result, Congress passed the RFRA enhancing the people's right to practice their religion without interference from the government. As originally passed, the federal RFRA also applied to state government action against religious practices. SCOTUS struck down that section of the law, noting that Congress had overstepped its constitutional authority by preventing states from enforcing their laws. Indiana's RFRA is not intended to protect individual religious practices from government interference: It is designed to allow individuals and businesses to discriminate against members of the public, as long as they can site a religious pretext for the discrimination. The law specifically broadens the definition of religious belief to include anything anyone claims is a religious belief, whether there is a traditional or academic history to support such belief, and regardless of how outre the practice. Furthermore, the Indiana RFRA applies to the interactions of private individuals, not to the government's interference with religious practices. As for the North Carolina bill, there is plenty of news about it. (How would you even know about it if it weren't in the news, unless perhaps you have a beach house in Okracoke?) We are well aware of it, and there is a well-organized campaign against it. We've already got the Republican governor of North Carolina on record opposing it. So any time you want to have an argument based on truth and facts, we're ready for you. In the meantime, we'll just consider anything you post to be your contribution to the troll's dung heap.  (16 hrs ago | post #76)

You seem to have forgotten your junior high geography. The baker was in Oregon. The law was passed in Indiana. A baker who refused to serve gays could not be charged with violating any Indiana law. Indeed, the only people protected by this new Indiana law are racists, misogynists, ablists, anti-Semites, and xenophobes.  (17 hrs ago | post #71)

In that case, you might want to stop eating in the tranny hooker bars. You can still hire the entertainment for the evening. There's no rule that you have to eat the food.  (17 hrs ago | post #70)

Lawmakers Consider Gay Discrimination Policies

Here's the difference: The bigot "Christian " baker was asked to provide a product he advertises. The cake was not offensive to anyone. It was only offensive to the baker because he decided that everyone else needed to follow his religious precepts. The "Christian " troll purposefully ask for a message that he knew would be offensive. And he knew it was specifically offensive to the business that he asked to produce it. Now, if the baker was willing to make anti-gay cakes for, say, Muslims, but not "Christians, " the troll might have had a point. But the bakery was not willing to make cakes with offensive messages for anyone. So there was no discrimination--no t even against trolls.  (Monday | post #1745)
