    You do realize that if the government gets in the business of telling business's it is okay to discriminate it is only a matter of time before a
    Court will side with a Muslim shop owner and your fears of Sharia law gripping America will start to come true.

    That's backwards. The government should not be "telling" anyone anything. The government should stick to the very narrow set of tasks assigned it in the Constitution and keep it's grubby mitts out of everything else.

    Yeah. We can see that you are a real hit at parties.

    Gay people don't choose to be gay. They are born that way. It's the exact same as asking a straight person to not act on their heterosexuality. Religious people actively do choose to be religious.
    I didn't say they chose to be gay. I said they chose their lifestyle. I chose to live a heterosexual lifestyle. I also chose to put my faith in religion. I chose, as does most every person, to live my life the way I want to and there are times when one of my choices doesn't work with a privately owned business, or some other establishment . For example, I don't crack a beer open while in church. I don't bring up theological discourse with my clients or colleagues at work. I have never felt discriminated against,. I simply respect the fact that if it's someone else's 'house', I need to follow their rules.
    Some folks just need a high-five. Some just need a high-five to the face.

    They dont' understand that concept, because they are an organized alliance of busy-body, control freaks with no manners.

    Personally I could care less if they can take it, if a couple rolls out in public still wearing pajamas and slippers along with silly hair colors and rainbow flag shirts on..
    It's game on..... Don't constantly flaunt your lifestyles and push me to constantly to change my opinions and beliefs on your behalf. And then run to a safe room when your tender rock throwing, glass house feelings are hurt..

    That's great and that's what most civilized people do.

    However the issue is discrimination and when people are still being beaten and killed , denied their civil rights, kept from visiting loved ones in hospitals or jails then it becomes an issue.



    And just because your religion tells you the devil is forcing them to live a homosexual lifestyle doesn't mean it's true or that that should have any bearing on them
