Religious Freedom Voided by Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries

Oregon’s constitution states the following in Section 3 of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights:

“Freedom of religious opinion. No law shall in any case whatever control the free exercise, and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience.”

The above sounds ironclad. A person in Oregon can’t be required (forced) to act contrary to his or her religious beliefs unless you decide not to bake a cake for a homosexual marriage.

The owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused, on religious grounds, to create a cake for a homosexual wedding in the same way that an owner of a printing company owned by blacks or Jews (or anybody for that matter) would most likely refuse to print signs and brochures for a KKK march. The KKK has the right to march, but no one should be forced to give support for the march.

One has to wonder if homosexual owners of a baker would make a cake for anti-homosexual event. I wouldn’t try to force them to bake such a cake. I would take my business elsewhere.

The homosexual couple could have gone to another bakery just like the KKK marchers could have gone to another print shop.

But Oregon and other states have created a new class of people based on a certain type of sexual behavior and they want us to comply with that behavior or be forced to pay stiff penalties:

“Under Oregon law, Oregonians may not be denied service based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The law provides an exemption for religious organizations and schools, but does not allow private business owners to discriminate based on sexual orientation, just as they cannot legally deny service based on race, sex, age, disability or religion. The investigation concludes that the bakery is not a religious institution under law and that the business’ policy of refusing to make same-sex wedding cakes represents unlawful discrimination based on sexual orientation.”

So not only are business owners forced to serve people who engage in sexual practices that they find repugnant, but their religious beliefs are also infringed upon. The Oregon Constitution does not include the phrase “only for religious organizations and schools.” The law covers everybody in all situations.

The homosexuals who wanted a cake could have purchased any cake in the bakery. The owners only refused to supply a cake for what they believe is an immoral practice.

This is tyranny of the highest order. If a law can be rewritten in one case, it can be rewritten in other cases. No one is safe from the thought-crimes police that are running the highest levels of government.

      Too bad if they do not want to bake a cake. They should not be forced to bake a cake. It really does not matter who you are if the bakery owners do not want to bake a cake then they do not have do it. Idiots out there grow up!!..

      • podunk1

        Amendment I: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” The Supreme law of the land as established by words within the Constitution trumps all other federal, state, or local law!

        This is a good opportunity to start civil rights suits for damages over $20 in local courts for "civil damages" & BY A JURY LOCKED INTO EXACT COPY AND WORDS of Amendments 1, 7, & 14, plus 5, 6, 8, 9, and Article 6, Clauses 2 & 3; plus both Oath and duty of offices! A huge element in this is "truth", as in "...will bear true faith and
        allegiance..." and "...will well and faithfully discharge the duties of office...” etc. All mandates begin at the top of the food chain all the way to the bottom in all government offices throughout their organization charts.

        Focus on & name individual government employees in the suit, as in unlawful use of government office and power. JURY TRIAL & the written Constitution as supreme law (word by word) are the keys. There is no "wiggle room" for anything they're doing – individually civil rights violations are felonies and collectively by progressives it's unquestionable sedition and treason! Sue whomever’s names are on the complaint the judge and the state… oath bound or in the chain of oath-duty bound.

    • tionico

      they were not "denied service". They had plenty of options to go elsewhere. Crybabies just wanting to stamp their feet and make someone else's life as miserable as theirs is. Grow up. If MY God declares something an abominatioon, and I life by HIS words and commands, then I will NOT do what HE says is abhorrent. Put me in jail if you want, I still will not.

      Nor would I bake a cake to celebrate an abortion, or a divorce, or an
      "assisted suicide", now legal in both Oregon and Washington......

    • Pam Dunn

      WRONG !!
      That is NOT what the STATE CONSTITUTION SAYS; That law is in contradiction to SUpreme law of the sate and is therefore INVALID.

    • Pablo Descartes

      I'll have fries with that, kid.

  • DWinch

    They could care less about their cake, they only care about shutting down a business that doesn't support their life style. They are just getting started!

    • john

      Exactly right. They show a disdain for the straight community. Their militant attitude only widens the gap of disagreement of life styles, which you afore mentioned.

  • NWBill

    So when does the lawsuit start to remind the state of its' Article 1 Section 3 constitutional responsibilities? Seems like a lawsuit that someone should take up - PRONTO. And it seems to me that the state courts and the Ninth Circuit, bastions of liberalism that they are, will go along with this new law ....which means that this could go all the way to the Supremes.

  • fiftysevenchevy

    Screw Oregon & their "Have To Comply With QU**R Laws" ! They'll be moving out of Oregon just as fast as they are from New York! I'm a DJ & Hell would freeze over before I would EVER play for a Queer or Lesbian wedding! AND I would NOT pay any dam fine for something that I strongly believe in AND is my Religious Freedom RIGHT! I would QUIT doing this before I would EVER play for these Sickos!!!!!!!!!!! I don't give a $hit WHAT laws they implement. I have MY RIGHTS under The Constitution also!

  • RonKB

    The conservatives of this country still have their head up their booty. In the eyes of the libs the law does not apply to them or their agendas; they simply don't give a hoot in hell. Laws are only for the cowering cowardly conservatives because they abide by them and care. The sooner conservatives pull their heads into the light of day and get it figured out the sooner we can clean house and dispose of the trash.

  • Jakebrake

    More of Obamas Muslim bull crap. These are more of his Socialist backers.

  • Felipe827

    Suggestion - file a disclaimer at the bakery front counter "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". Do not justify the refusal - just refuse. Then these legal problems do not surface. Objecting due to sexual preference/identity is not really a reasonable refusal as most law prohibits it. Just refuse as "too busy", etc.

  • michael lawless

    they should have just baked the homos a cake from dogshit

    I would have made the cake, filled it with saw dust and used white glue to cover it. Also I would have put the figures head down on top of the cake. If they complained, then I would have said it was a secret family recipe.

      To scare them away place a sign in the store stating we use Holy Water in all our cakes and pastries! We believe in Christian morals and values!

  • john

    This foolishness by the homosexuals involved is complete absurdity and shows signs of meanness. They,[ the homosexuals], are only posturing a stubborn stance showing a militant behavior. Which is one of the main reasons why they polarize the straight community.

    • ezekiel22

      True and they also use this type of action to intimidate other companies and individuals.

  • cmjay

    The HOMOSEXUAL couple did that on purpose for spite and to teach the owner a lesson, instead of going someplace else .The GAYSTAPO is at it again.

    • setemfree

      Homeseual couple.. Would that be the ones that shadow the White House. I read that moochele may have even been a man. That makes up for the uglyliest mrs pres.

    • Chris P

      Rightly so - you seem to have a hard time getting the message that using made up religious views into justifying discrimination against your fellow citizens is wrong.

    • CARLjr

      ....and it is the law in Oregon.

      • Pam Dunn

        WHICH VIOLATES THE OREGON STATE CONSTITUTION.

        • CARLjr

          in what way?

  • CajunPatriot

    SADs (Sexually aberrant deviants) now control Oregon, or at least those who sympathize (or take pleasure in them who do such things) with them. Reprobate minds Romans 1 calls them. So reprobates are running Oregon. A few percent of the population telling the rest what they should do, even if it is abhorrent to their God and the Word of God?

    Fight to change the regulations, and do not give up!

    • Chris P

      As against the reprobates in the Roman Catholic church.

    • Pam Dunn

      It's the left winger morons that are escaping Commiefornia and THEN spreading the SAME STUPIDITY to Oregon and Washington.

      • CajunPatriot

        You are right. They started that mass exodus about a generation ago. Even the left winger morons want less taxes on themselves, (though they want huge taxes on everyone else!) and a cheaper cost of living.

  • Chris P

    You cannot use religion as an excuse to discriminate. Religions are fiction.

    • Flybob

      Discrimination is NOT unlawful, laws restricting it ARE!!!! WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO MAKE OUR OWN DECISIONS!!!! If I want to discriminate then it's MY perogative!!! READ THE US CONSTITUTION!!!!

      • opelske

        I was always under the impression that a discriminate dresser was a well dressed man or woman. To discriminate is to choose; only a nitwit does not choose...as does an unkempt dresser. Discrimination is necessary if we are to choose wisely in just about everything we do in life. These new PC definitions are getting sicker by the nanosecond!

      • Chris P

        Not if you are in a business serving the public.

        • Flybob

          By God you're right! I MISSED the part in article VI where it says "the supreme law of the land...EXCEPT for businesses". But then again I don't see the word EXCEPT ANYWHERE IN ARTICLE VI!!!! What about if I want to rent my house out and the government says I HAVE to rent whoever THEY say I have to? Oh but that's different isn't it? You know, I've been watching some of your posts. I believe YOU ARE A FRIKIN COMMIE! Why don't you just go somewhere they don't HAVE a Constitution that protects individual rights and save all of us REAL patriots a lot of trouble. Basically you are FULL of it! A business has JUST as much right to discriminate as any individual. Wake up and smell the pot you've been smoking and read the US Constitution before you shoot your mouth off.

        • Chris P

          The Constitution grants people equal rights. That means you cannot discriminate. Can you even read.

        • ezekiel22

          You will have to reverse that. The Constitution lays out the perimeters that the government has to operate within. However there is group in this country that wishes to grant freedoms of its citizens from the government. They are opposed by a group that wishes to tell the govrnment where its authority lies. Reading the different positions is interesting and involved.

        • Chris P

          I'd have thought it would make sense not to have to face the Spanish Inquisition when buying a cake. Wouldn't that be good at a supermarket - get to the checkout and find out it is some religious nut who says you cannot buy meat on a Friday - or some other nonsense made up rule?

        • CARLjr

          Sorry you were in an automobile accident, but this hospital does not serve "your kind". Please exit the emergency room and go out to the sidewalk off of hospital property. You are getting blood all over the floor.

        • ezekiel22

          That is what happened to the man that figured out blood typing for transfusions. He died.

        • ezekiel22

          Now did you read both sides? It has everything to do with your initial worldview. Do you want limits on your freedoms or do you want limits on the governments power? Simple huh?

        • Chris P

          No I want limits on religion influencing my and other people's rights.

        • Flybob

          Is that right? I must have missed that one. Please quote to me exactly WHERE the US Constitution says even ONE word about equal rights OR equality? WHERE does the US Constitution say ANYTHING about GRANTING ANYTHING AT ALL? The US Constitution does NOT grant anything in any way shape or form. The US Constitution GUARANTEES you will NOT LOSE the rights you were BORN with stupid! ANY document that can GRANT rights can also take them away. You were BORN with rights. Show me ONE word in the US Constitution that grants rights OR where it says there is ANYTHING about discrimination other than for VOTING! I challenge you to READ THE DOCUMENT as you have CLEARLY NOT DONE SO. AND WHERE does is even MENTION discrimination? It is YOU who cannot read sir, I have read the US Constitution MANY MANY times and NOTHING you say is even CLOSE to right. IN FACT, exactly the opposite is true. IN THE PREAMBLE THE Constitution mentions liberty FOR us and our posterity. YOU UNDERSTAND THIS WORD? It is synonymous with FREEDOM. Included in the right to freedom is the right to discriminate. READ THE US CONSTITUTION SIR! You have NO idea what you're talking about and if you do then it is your liberal crap that is convincing you otherwise.

        • Chris P

          You are correct that it is not in the Constitution but one assumes that it does nothing to undo what was in the Declaration of Independence.

        • Flybob

          See now that's what libtards do, they quote things that are NOT there and like to use the part they agree with. The parts they do NOT agree with, like the 2nd amendment, are not valid. We ALL have the freedom to discriminate and that's that. Or do you also assume since there is no dialog regarding such that it IS valid because you think it SHOULD be? You think the government has he authority to tell you HOW to think and act? Welcome to Russia comrade. We have the rights GIVEN to us by God (or the moon or whatever you think created us) and GUARANTEED by the US Constitution to be FREE individuals, free to think and act as we wish. Part of that freedom is that to discriminate. ALL people and ALL businesses. The US Constitution was written to LIMIT GOVERNMENT and PROTECT our rights from ALL, including other citizens. YOU need to get a grip sir, you're just plain wrong. I HIGHLY recommend you read the preamble first to understand WHY the US Constitution was written and then read Article VI so you understand WHO it affects and then read the rest for the content. You might be surprised to know what it REALLY says. You're not quoting it accurately.

        • Chris P

          Discrimination is an abomination.

        • Flybob

          That's your OPINION! You have the RIGHT to an opinion AND express it but that doesn't make it right. I think discrimination is not only healthy but necessary. If I want to go to a bar or pub and listen to music I prefer on the juke box and it's full of hip hop then I'll go somewhere else. If I want to go to a restaurant where there are no screaming children then that's where I'll go. If I can't accomplish either of those then I'll stay home which is bad for BOTH businesses. I don't want to hang out where there are gays. That's MY business. You say discrimination is an abomination, I say homosexual activity is an abomination and I don't want to watch it. AND if I were in my own business then I would decide who and when I want to serve ANYONE. That's called freedom. and the government has NO business involved.

        • Chris P

          And I thought the abomination of having "No blacks" signs had gone away.

        • Flybob

          By the way, exactly WHAT do you think the Declaration Independence has to do with the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND (as described in Article VI)? Even though the Declaration of Independence is still a valid document, it says NOTHING about being the law.

      The most hated battle cry of the American War for Independence was "no king but King Jesus". The Brits hated that one..... because they KNEW it to be true. Yet they persisted in subjugating the colonists. Now we have a different king attempting to demand fealty to itself... the king of "political correctness" and calling evil good, and good evil. Buggery is evil, no escaping that. But the kings now reigning over the State of Oregon have called it "good". Lying tyrants always get deposed.

      • Chris P

        Plenty of proof - after thousands of years you cannot agree on which religion is the right one. No physical proof of any god either. No mechanism for souls or going to heaven.

        Since atheism is a non-belief describing it as "fiction" is nonsensical. But then most of what you write is.

        • petroskhan

          HAHAHA!
          It's a "non-belief"? What sort of inane pretzel logic is that? You believe in something. You believe that the world and life arose all on its own, with no outside or supernatural cause. That's a BELIEF, Crispy. It's not a "non-belief".

        • Chris P

          Well - I won't ask you since you have this childish belief in a magic God. I don't "believe" anything about the Universe's origins - I'll wait til science figures it out. Certainly didn't happen the way your silly fictional Bible said it did. Genesis doesn't even agree with itself.

        • petroskhan

          Wait...you'll "wait til science figures it out."?? I thought you said evolution was a FACT. That means science HAS figured it out.

        • Chris P

          Evolution is not origins science. Your beliefs really are stupid - you think that a magic God dumped a pair of fully working humans on the planet. DNA clearly says that is stupid and wrong.

  • theshadow

    I think religion is BS, however I fully support the right to exercise it with the logical caveats - as with anything. Why gays are granted the ultimate power - is simply mystifying. I won't even get into the race baiting nonsense these pathetic frauds embrace - as yet another special class.

    • LeonBerton

      Your caution re: religions is understandable, since even the ideological passion evidenced by these very people in Oregon to legally impose tacit approval from others for actions that the latter disapprove is itself a form of distorted religious zealotry.

      In this case, it is an implicit totalitarian egalitarianism that would erase all liberty and discretion that is ultimately based in reality and real differences in nature.

      For me, it is not religion as such that is BS, but whether this or that use of the human's religious inclinations are such. And whenever they are, liberty suffers and tyranny over others rears its ugly head.

    Typical liberal "stuff". But, if you were to "force" a gay male to have sex with a straight woman [unless he is "bi"] you are interfering with his conscience and he will have your "butt" [no pun nor threat intended]! But it doesn't work the other way around! This nation has reached that point where there is no return from the degradation brought on by the turning away from traditional morality. The direction is down and destruction is the end! It has happened before in other empires, and it is happening before our eyes, but many if not most don't see it because they don't want to see it! That certainly includes the leaders in both parties! Truth is simply not their strong suit!

  • Logo4245

    Is Oregon aware that Islam does not recognize homosexuality? Will this apply to muslim bakeries, also? Something tells me that the state and gay population does not have the backbone to stand up to a religion unless it is one that will turn the other cheek.

      No Muslim bakeries have refused a request like this. No Muslim photographers, flower arrangers, or catering companies either. In this situation, Muslims are more tolerant than the Christians.

    Freedoms are lost incrementally , one right at a time . Our constitution guarantees every American , individually , the right to act according to our conscience . The government can not force any American to violate his/her conscience in the way they operate their business . We can not leave the conscienc at home in our daily activities ; it takes no breaks !!!

  • Swed.

    The Muzzies will not tolerate the gays or infidels in any form, their cult / religion makes killing the infidel a rewarded act. Killing infidels is encouraged in the koran. The same liberals that empower the muzzies will loose their heads, literally when the muzzies get power. This will be fun to watch. Christians need to stop tolerating this bigotry, Christophobia and general violation of their Civil Rights.

  • setemfree

    This government is being run by a bunch of homosexual muslims. Time for a big change.

  • Jesustheonlyway

    Don't look for this evil to stop - it won't. We're in the last days and Jesus said there would be a "great falling away" from God. This kind of abuse is only the beginning of the destruction of Christianity. Jesus went on to say that when we see these things coming to pass "look up for our redemption draweth nigh". This is not defeat but rather the fulfillment of God's plan - the end is near and all that Jesus told us would come is here.

    • gapch12

      Absolutely..you are so right. I too believe we are living in the last days. We will see worse than this before Jesus returns.

      • acronymous

        Well on point 2, surely you're right. But as to point 1? You can believe what you like, but in every day from then to now, there have been people who thought the same as you. All of them wrong.

    If the bakery refused to sell a wedding cake (which is part of their advertised business) to an interracial couple because their religious belief was against the mixing of the races, would that be OK? Would you stand up and support that?

    • CelticDenise

      Yes. That would be terrific.

    • THEJOE6PACK

      So.... A gay bakery should be forced to bake an anti-gay cake or a black owned printshop should be forced to print flyers for a Klan rally?

      Did you even read the article?

    • CARLjr

      They also can't refuse to bake a cake for someone in a wheelchair because they don't like cripples. They can't refuse to bake a cake for Hispanics because they hate Mexicans. They can't refuse to bake a Bar Mitzvah cake because they are antisemitic. Keep your bigoted opinions to yourself and do your job.

    • Victor Magilke

      The Klan has never been as bad as the media has written. Years ago out of curiosity, and against the advice of my friends, I went to a demonstration. David Duke was one of the speakers. He was intelligent, very charismatic and humorous. Even the black policemen were laughing at his funny comments. He's been labeled everything bad but all he did was tell the truth.

      Have tou ever read the " Clansman " by Thomas Dixon, Jr. ? There is also a great movie, " The Birth of a Nation." by D.W. Griffith" Its a silent movie based on Dixon's novel. It tells the truth about the Klan.

    Doesn't the owner of this bakery have a sign about refusing to serve anyone? Where is his rights being upheld. He shouldn't have to answer to anyone about his beliefs.

    I'd say they have a very interesting Constitutional case on their hands.

    Time to take it to the Oregon's state supreme court and make it. If that law is read strictly, or even broadly, the Bureau is almost without question violating it.

    Even if clarification on what is and is not allowable is what results, we'll all be better for it.

    In the meantime, a sign that says "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason" is still quite allowable and should be posted.

    The mentally deranged homosexuals could have gone to another bakery, but they had to force their insanity on other people, which is what leftist, Democratic liberalism is all about. The problem here is not the mentally deranged sexual deviants, but the government that gives them legitimacy through the enactment of "specialty laws" to protect the claims of the insane. The time has come to overthrow the politicians and kill them if need be, to reinstate our Constitutional Rights. And that is what our Second Ammendment is really about. Once again, do not hate or act against the mentally ill, act against the tyrannists/politicians that are destroying our Nation and Constitution.

    I moved to Central Oregon from California 36 years ago and thought I was finally free of the blind, ignorant and controlling liberals I left behind. Not so! They followed me here in droves and now their numbers, especially on the west side of the Cascade mountains, allow them to drag us all down to the level (right below the cow pie) which California occupies today. The west side of Oregon, along with the western half of Washington, are now nothing more than the northern part of California. Time to move on and leave them to wallow in the cesspool they created. Swine, one and all.

  • rchguns

    Okay so were forced to make the cake. However it doesn't have to be a good cake! Specialty cakes are piece of art and no one can force an artist to perform in a specific manner. I can sympathize with the bakery actually the Baker because they're an artist. I'm an executive chef retired and one of my specialties was ice and tallow sculptures and centerpieces for special occasions. Including one year ice carvings for the Rose Festival in Portland. Long ago and far away.

    But my point is these perverts didn't do this for principal they did it specifically to get notoriety and to rub their perversion in the faces of everybody else. So instead of giving them the chance to make their statement and get their notoriety a better tactic would've been to make the cake that is at best mediocre and preferably very amateurish. Maybe have your dishwasher decorated.

    They want a cake give them a cake but don't give them a piece of art and a soapbox to further their cause.

    • mrzmac

      Why should this couple have to lower their standards to appease a couple whose action go against their moral beliefs? This disregard of our rights has to be fought straight forward!

    • Fox

      They should have baked the cake using concrete

      • rchguns

        No it would have to be edible and conform to what the customer specified. There are plenty of ways to make the cake perfectly edible but everything else about it is crap.

        Do a very poor job with decorating and especially make the frosting without flavoring so it basically tastes like fat and sugar. After all you're not looking for recommendations.

  • M. Fazio

    The Homosexually Lobby has become a TYRANNICAL GROUP. Either you support US or We'll destroy YOU. They tried these Tactics in Sacramento.

I wouldn't have. They obtained the List of Donors ILLEGALLY and they went to Their Businesses and Harassed them.

        • CARLjr

          An saying used my Stalin and the Hitler during WWII: "Tell a LIE Often enough, it becomes TRUTH!" They are trying to sell the Public the LIE that Homosexual Sex is Normal. Sorry it's not. I will NEVER believe that they are normal.

      • ezekiel22

        Chris, the homosexual community or at least their activists are indeed going too far. The incidents that Fazio describes really have happened and some even worse. The AG has even tailored regulations to fit this group. The gay lobby wants and demands positive reinforcement of their lifestyle. Or Else! If you do not then they will go for a hostile workplace.

    • Chris P

      You are the perverts - applying perverted values to people who have equal rights.

      • petroskhan

        If the same standards are applied to all customers (subject to the same rules), then there is no discrimination.

        Here's a scenario:
        I choose to determine that all of my customers are Christians, following the tenets of the Bible. I'm totally impartial, and apply the standards to everyone. How am I discriminating?

        • CARLjr

          To non-Christians. Duh. You can not discriminate on the basis of religion.

        • petroskhan

          I'm not discriminating. I'm deciding with whom I choose to do business. I apply the same standard equally, and allow anyone to meet the standards, or do business elsewhere.

        • CARLjr

          You cannot do that. You need to be a private club, not open to the public. If you are open to the public you must abide by the non-discrimination laws.

        • petroskhan

          And that's why I have presented the idea which I've posted numerous times.

          Any Christian should run his business on the "club" model. Membership dues (1 cent per transaction should be good); posted by-laws, membership requirements (adherence to the Bible is good); membership subject to approval of business owner, etc.

          THAT would avoid this whole mess, and be legal as well.

        • CARLjr

          Agreed. Plus it would alert anyone who does not want to do business with a bigot to not shop there.

        • petroskhan

          You can say it's bigoted, but how about just stating that it's someone who has beliefs, and would like the freedom (and "tolerance"?) to stick to them, without being forced to associate with those with whom he does not want?

          I don't go to gay bars...Same reasons, same thing.

        • CARLjr

          The whole reason "country clubs" were invented was to keep out the blacks. They did not want to be forced to associate with them. It worked for about 50 years or so.

        • petroskhan

          Ah, yes...the gay/black thing...

          Being black is not a matter of choice, now, is it? Engaging in homosexuality, on the other hand? It IS a matter of choice.

          Kind of a big difference there.

        • CARLjr

          Being a Christian is a matter of choice, now, isn't it? You are happy to discriminate based on choice.

        • petroskhan

          Yes, now you've got it! If THEIR choices run counter to MY choices, then we both go our separate ways, and leave each other alone...to our respective choices.

          Problem solved.

        • CARLjr

          So you would be OK if a company put up a sign and refused service to Christians? What if it was a grocery store? A hospital? The only internet service provider in town?

        • petroskhan

          As I want the same right, I would indeed be okay with someone stating that he didn't wish to serve Christians, no matter the business. I can always take my business elsewhere.

        • CARLjr

          Thank goodness you are not in charge of it then. It's not easy to take your business to a different hospital in many cases. Why not just keep your opinion to yourself and do your job?

        • petroskhan

          The problem with your supposition is that we are, with this article, dealing with an "owner/operator" business, not a large corporation.

          You can't draw a parallel between the two, as the corporation will, more than likely, have many owners, dozens of employees (if not more), etc. The single owner business (as in this case) is guided by the desires, beliefs and goals of one person, the owner.

          Also, doctors also swear an oath, which is supposed to be binding:
          "I solemnly pledge to consecrate my life to the service of humanity;

          I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude that is their due;

          I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity;

          The health of my patient will be my first consideration;

          I will respect the secrets that are confided in me, even after the patient has died;

          I will maintain by all the means in my power, the honour and the noble traditions of the medical profession;

          My colleagues will be my sisters and brothers;

          I will not permit considerations of age, disease or disability,
          creed, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race,
          sexual orientation, social standing or any other factor to intervene
          between my duty and my patient;

          I will maintain the utmost respect for human life;

          I will not use my medical knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat;

          I make these promises solemnly, freely and upon my honour."
          Notice that part about "sexual orientation"? Doctors can't hold that against someone, it's part of BEING a doctor. You care for the person's health. Along the same lines, I might not want to do business with a homosexual, but, for example, if a building was on fire, and one was trapped in there, sure, I'd try to help. Even less dramatic, if the guy (or gal) was stuck by the side of the road with a flat tire, why shouldn't I help? He's a human being, and deserves to be treated as such. Doesn't mean I want him in my store, nor will I invite him home to have dinner with my family. It's MY choice, and I am free to make it.

          So...I call "Strawman" on your argument, if you don't mind.

          Precedent. No discrimination. For any business. Not a mom and pop place, not a bigger company like Hobby Lobby, not a huge corporation like Apple, not the Government either. Everyone gets the same deal. It's the American way.

          If I go to a place that does not provide a service I want -- I go to a place that does! Novel concept, huh? Apparently that concept is beyond some people's ability to think logically.
          IF, that is, we are to believe the intent was simply to request a service and not a blatant political statement. How dishonest!
          Are we to believe that the ONLY providers available for gay oriented demands are Christian? Are we to believe gays really can't find ANYONE else to bake a gay oriented cake but are "forced" to go to a shop obviously known to be operated by Christians?
          Please! This is nothing less than dictator-like control.
          The gay lobby wants nothing more than to silence *any* different ideas/perspectives, pretty much in the same manner the NAACP, Rainbow Push, the ACLU and countless other liberal organizations have worked to accomplish for the past however many years.
          Conservatives have finally found their gumption to stand up to the liberals' accusations of 'racism' every time a conservative disagrees with giving out more freebies to buy more votes.
          Now we have to find our voices to support our beliefs against folks who eschew religious beliefs altogether and demand the 'right' to disallow anyone's beliefs.
          Destruction of America continues: the rising over one to destroy others will never come to "equality."

        • CARLjr

          That may work in a large city where there are many options, but many people live in a smaller community that only has ONE hospital, ONE grocery store. It's not that they don't provide the service. They just won't provide it to YOU. Whether you are black, gay, republican, German, Asian, over 60 years old, blind, left handed, Lutheran, Baptist, redheaded, overweight, have an accent or a stutter, have a beard, or a veteran. No one should be in the group that the store refuses service to. Who is next? When will YOU the one discriminated against?

        • petroskhan

          Right now, apparently. :P

        • CARLjr

          There is a difference between disagreeing with someone and refusing them service. There is no law against disagreeing.

        • D-man

          Dear idiot ,you ARE discriminating against the baker,it is scary that you cannot recognize this fact.The law targets or in other words DISCRIMINATES against his freedom of expression,religion,private property ,pursuit of happiness,etc.It is the equivalent of a city ordinance banning smoking in
          all establishments within the city limits.Pfft ,you have a cigar bar,tough you have to close.The trouble with regressives it is the law of unintended consequences that always bites you in the a**.

        • http://mczwzthinks.blogspot.com/ MCzwz

          In an ideal world, yes. This country of ours is no longer an ideal world. In today's politically correct world, only those who submit and fall in line appropriately are "allowed" to go their own way to their choices.

          In today's "1984," no one is "allowed" to go one's own way with one's own preferences and ideas and choices.

          That is today's reality: do what we (The Liberals) say or else.

        • petroskhan

          Agreed.

        • CARLjr

          You are arguing against the concept of law?

        • http://mczwzthinks.blogspot.com/ MCzwz

          Not wanting to bake a cake for someone is NOT discrimination.

          That, too, is a choice. The choice of deciding for whom one wants to expend one's energy to create a product.

          Strange how liberals feel that only *they* have the "right" to choose, whenever they feel like it, but no one else does.

          Lord help our country!

        • CARLjr

          If you bake a cake for EVERYONE else, it is. That is what the courts have said. Over and over. You cannot use your own prejudices to discriminate against others in business. If you don't like it, you shouldn't have a business. Go work for someone else.

          I thought you were once a Christian? Did you act like this when you were? Not much of an improvement...

        • D-man

          You aren't well versed on your own constitution are you. I guess private property,personal choice and other quaint notions like "we reserve the right to refuse service to whomever we chose." are lost on the bully pulpit of the state. Besides ,the stupidity of the law would not allow the baker to descriminate against a pedophile,necrophiliac, orgyist, bestialytist, transgender,transvestite .The sad thing is you ignore the equal protection under the law ,where the law is applied equally .Now the law protects discriminantly and "more " equally for some .Using force to discriminate against one persons rights is no more than the statistically vapid notion of creating "hate " crime laws.
          Take it to the US Supreme court ,the law is not only unconstitutional in Oregon ,but is unconstitutional and violates many guarantees in the Bill of Rights.

        • Chris P

          When did you choose to be a heterosexual? Do transgenders choose to have mixed genders?

          What an odd post by you who attacks certain denominations you have chosen to attack, all Christians and Christianity really, and do not follow the Bible yourself. You don't even understand the Bible and have proven it in many of your silly posts.

          Nothing you try though is going to work except stopping your attacks on religious people, the certain denominations you have selected and making posts as if you are really somebody.
          You prove by your posts that you are an ignorant blowhard, an idiot, not very bright, siding with atheists and other unbelievers in God, with an overblown opinion of yourself.
          Go away. Post online where I will never see you. Since you have failed to listen to my sound advice and persist in your idiotic behaviors I will not let up on showing others who and what you really are. You can think of it as my campaign like your campaign against Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Seventh-Day Adventist.
          Tell me, pet, how does if feel for You to be attacked for Your beliefs based on your inability to read and understand the Bible? Think about that question a bit and what you have been doing ever since I first saw you online, pet.

        • petroskhan

          Okay, Ron, since you're obviously too stubborn and illiterate to get the simple message that you are, quite honestly, beneath me in every way that matters, I shall grant you your obvious wish, and communicate with you. Try to control your excitement, and sit down. We don't want your ticker to give out from the arousal you're undoubtedly feeling at the fact that I'm paying attention to you.

          First, don't bother denying that you want me to communicate with you. Any sane and normal person who did not wish communication would have ceased long ago, and left it as "done" with my numerous "Ignored" comments. You, however, like some desperate crack addict, simply can't seem to get enough of me demonstrating to the world what an odd, ignorant, arrogant homosexual curmudgeon you truly are.

          "Go away"...and deprive you of one of your major reasons for living? Deprive you of the joy of being humiliated, and mostly by your posts, when they are shown for the ignorant, hot air they are? Why on earth would I do that? That would be far too cruel to you, and I would never do that to you.

          "This is the USA. We speak English here..." Really? No other languages are spoken here? You really need to pull your head out of...well...you know. America being the melting pot it is, you might notice that a great many languages are spoken here, and English is but one of them. But then...you actually notice so little of the real world, don't you? You poor, miserable senile old man. Tell me, do you change your own diapers, or does the nurse help you with that? Just wondering...

          "You prove by your posts that you are an ignorant blowhard, an idiot, not very bright..." Now, I find that quite amusing, as you have yet to disprove a single thing I've posted regarding the Bible, and my position on religious matters. In fact, you have to prove that you even know the contents of the Bible to a greater degree than that of an elementary school child raised by Buddhists. But by all means, prattle on, Ron. Do prattle on. Your hot air and pomposity provide me (and a great many others) with endless entertainment. I am actually thinking of collecting your posts and mine together and creating a website where all can read them. Maybe I could entitle it "Conversations with Ron the Savior" or something similarly grandiose. I'm sure you won't mind, since you have yourself stated you don't need humility.

          "Post online where I will never see you." Hmm...and another amusing post from the depths of your senility. Since Disqus is one of the (if not THE) most widely used forum posting mediums, and you have elected to "Follow" me, that would be rather difficult, wouldn't it, Ron? (As a side note, it should be pointed out that as amusing as I find you, I am not following you. Stalk much?) And anyway, even if I could post where you will never see me, and chose not to, all you have to do is not read my posts. But you choose to do so, and no one is forcing you to do otherwise. You have elected to read them, and respond to them. So quit with the lying, you pompous self-important speck of fecal matter. No one with a grain of sanity or intelligence believes anything you write. So, stop lying. It only makes you even more foolish...as if that were even possible.

          "...you have failed to listen to my sound advice..." When you learn enough, and climb down from your ivory tower long enough, to actually give sound advice, I will consider following it. Until then, I choose to ignore your rambling hot air, and give it all the serious consideration that I would to fly-covered pile of canine feces in someone else's yard...in another country. So get over yourself...everyone else certainly has.

          "I will not let up on showing others who and what you really are." Right back at ya, Ronnie-boy. Right. Back. You are a dolt. A truly evil, ignorant pagan who spreads lies and deceit under the cover of being a man of God, and you need to be shown for the pompous Satan worshiping ignoramus you truly are. More than anything else, I despise liars, and you are one of the worst I've ever encountered in my life. But despite that, I do pity you, for I know that you are simply lost and afraid of the truth.

          "how does if feel for You to be attacked for Your beliefs based on your inability to read and understand the Bible" I don't know, you tell me. You're the one who never actually disproved a thing I said, but decided to go rambling on about how qualified you are, and I'm not. You haven't actually countered or refuted one single thing I've ever said, as desperately as you have tried. I'm not surprised, though. You really don't know the Bible very well, and the simple skill of logic and debate is one that is, quite obviously, well beyond your feeble mental means.

          So...to sum it all for you, here's what you're showing everyone:

          1. You don't want me to leave you alone. If you did, you would have ceased communicating with me. You would not be "following" me on Disqus. I tried to make it very plain that you were far too rude and self-absorbed to deal with, but like a child denied a favored toy, you have chosen to "Follow" me on Disqus, and insist on exchanging posts. You are clearly a liar, and want to feel like you are engaged in some sort of struggle against an enemy, where you can feel like you're accomplishing something in your deluded fantasy of some sort of personal Crusade. Problem is, you're the heathen, and I'm the Christian. Sort of ruins the fantasy. I guess you'll have to call your struggle a "Jihad", then, won't you, you degenerate pagan?

          2. You are completely ignorant of the Bible and its contents, as you can't even refute the simplest points I've raised with Scripture; you are forced to resort to your own ramblings and hot air, and then, laughably, claim that you've answered the issue raised. A perfect example is where I clearly show that the Bible condemns adding to God' appointed Holy Days, yet you vehemently defend Christmas and Easter, pagan festivals added by men in obvious and clear violation of Scripture and the Will of God. You cannot support or defend this position, and so you instead attack me with your inane and childish attempts at insults. You avoid directly addressing the issues and then claim, after tedious hot air and insults, that you've "won", by not actually answering anything. All you've won is first place in a Moron Contest, with the runner-up being anyone who would listen to your pagan rantings.

          3. You are pompous beyond belief. Even the most rudimentary study of the Bible shows that humility is a trait which Christians are to nurture and strive for, yet you have stated that you have no need for it. (Is your halo on straight?) Also, your self-love and belief in your own infallibility are your greatest weaknesses. You should really read the Bible, and learn what humility means; lose the arrogance. Learn to admit when you're wrong...which you are with startling frequency, Your Not-So-Holy-ness.

          4. You are, at the very least, a closet homosexual. I don't know you personally, so I don't know if you've "com out" or not. For all I know, you are a proud and happy public cross-dresser who goes by the name Rhonda. It wouldn't surprise me in the least. No heterosexual man would actually prefer to use the term "pet" when talking to another man, yet it seems to be your favorite term when addressing me. Not enough gay bars where you live, Rhonda? Or are the other "boys" just not attracted to you? And if you think you're coming off as clever, or that you're bothering me, you're not. You can't. You're simply not important enough to irritate me. You are just making yourself look like a geriatric homosexual stalker obsessed with what he can't have.

          There ya go, Rhonda. Happy now? You caught me in a generous mood, and I've condescended to give you a modicum of attention. You have my permission to express your gratitude now.

        • RonMar

          pet, you are too funny with your long, rambling, always wrong, nonsense posts trying to project your traits and behaviors onto me, thus proving again your insanity.
          I don't want you to communicate with me or anyone else. I want you to shut up, listen, learn, then keep your idiotic mouth shut forever with your attacks on Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists and other Christian faith belief groups.
          That is what all of this is about - your Satan-driven attacks on Christians and Christianity, your buddying up with other atheists and unbelievers in God of all kinds. Get it!?
          This is actionable as defamation of character in court. Thank you for more evidence to go in your file against you - "homosexual curmudgeon you truly are," "you degenerate pagan," "completely ignorant of the Bible," "you've won', (sic) first place in a Moron Contest with your pagan rantings," "You are ... homosexual ... proud and happy public cross-dresser who goes by the name Rhonda," "You ... look like a geriatric homosexual stalker ...."
          FYI, America stopped being a melting pot long ago. It has been for many years now a nation divided against itself, fragmented really into oppositional groups refusing to become real Americans and clinging to their cultures that they fled for good reasons. You are so ignorant you are stupid, idiotic even.
          FYI, dummy, English is the International Language of aviation and other money-making enterprises worldwide. You are well advised to learn it and try to use it properly.
          I have disproven every thing you've posted regarding the Bible and your "reasons" for attacking Christians, especially women, and Christianity. You had a chance to cite support from the Bible for your Satan-driven behaviors, and you failed miserably at it, of course. You either did not post any Scripture at all, and when you did try you posted the wrong Scripture. That is on the record for all readers here to see, you pathetic liar and not a bright one at that :). LOL.
          Typical of idiots you are easily amused.
          You ramble on with lots of real "Christian" scatological obscenities there, Lucifer.
          You haven't gotten over me. After trying your idiotic "Ignored" ploy you had to post this long bit of nonsense to me digging yourself deeper into the hole you put yourself in from the outset with your attacks on Christians, especially women, and Christianity.
          Remember, that's what all this is about - your Satan-driven, mindless attacks.
          Tell all of us again what Church and church you left in a fit of childish rage over not getting your way after 30 years in the Church and church with "important jobs." LOL. What church have you attended since then, are you attending now? You are studying and learning with what denomination? LOL.
          You challenged me on specific points of your choice, and you lost miserably in that debate on every point, and all the sub-points, and you know it but are not man enough to admit your defeat. You really defeated yourself.
          "You are pompous beyond belief. Even the most rudimentary study of the Bible shows that humility is a trait which Christians are to nurture and strive for ... your self-love and belief in your own
          infallibility are your greatest weaknesses. You should really read the Bible, and learn what humility means; lose the arrogance.

          "I have disproven every thing you've posted regarding the Bible"
          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Like WHAT?!?! You are so full of "stuff", your eyes are probably brown. HAHAHAHAHA! You've never disproven a single thing I've stated, and you can't, you pathetic heathen, because my source of information is the Inspired Word of God, while you kowtow to the man-made pagan festivals and the evils of religions that oppose the Bible. In short, you are pathetically delusional, and so ignorant on the subject of the Bible you don't even realize how lost you are.

          "You had a chance to cite support from the Bible for your Satan-driven behaviors, and you failed miserably at it, of course." LOLOLOLOLOL You are OUT there, Rhonda. Truly, way waaaaayyyy out there. I quoted Scripture, moron. I clearly showed where the Bible forbids paganism. I showed where we are ordered by God to not add to His Holy Days. What did you cite? NOTHING, you arrogant heathen. Not one thing but your own hot air and childish attempts at insults. You are a boorish, immature doddering old fool, too full of himself to accept the Holy Spirit, or follow the guidance of the Bible you claim to know so well. I pity you, pagan.

          "You challenged me on specific points of your choice, and you lost
          miserably in that debate on every point, and all the sub-points, and you
          know it but are not man enough to admit your defeat." ROFLMAO!!! You actually believe that by spouting the gibberish you did, and not citing ONE Scripture to counter the numerous passages I quoted, that you proved anything? Well, wait...you did prove one thing. That you're an idiot, and a pagan to boot.

          And just for giggles, let's see you try once more, Rhonda. God has forbidden paganism. That's beyond dispute. God has forbidden the addition to His Holy Days. Justify Christmas, Pagan. Show me from Scripture that this pagan festival is any way supported by God, if you can...you moronic Satan-worshiping heathen. And while you're at it, dolt, illustrate for all of the world to see how me exhorting others to read and study the Bible, and stick to its commands, is "Satan-driven". Two simple things. Let's see if you can find both the manhood and the intellect to prove your point.

        • RonMar

          pet, I wish you were able to see what a fool you make of yourself on worldwide-available, public sites with your ongoing attacks on certain denominations - Catholic, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Seventh-Day Adventists, Christians in general, particularly women, and all Christianity.
          You compound making yourself look like an idiot online by continuing to argue endlessly the same points although you have lost every time you have argued them.
          In a long dissertation trying to refute my devastating your arguments in support of your attacks on certain denominations you have chosen to attack as well as Christians and Christianity in general, you in fact "quoted [one verse of] Scripture, moron," and you got that wrong. The 1 Timothy cite had nothing to do with the story at hand, the news forum thread, your argument and my defeating points against your silly argument.
          You are, as I have said already, delusional and prove it by continuing to argue over the one point endlessly, while trying to project our traits and behaviors onto me. You are Insane! Seek help local to you.
          You say, "I clearly showed where the Bible forbids paganism. I showed where we are ordered by God to not add to His Holy Days." - Yes you did when you were asked to show where the Bible prohibits celebrations of the birth of Jesus the Christ and His resurrection. LOL.
          Also, you failed to know and understand the order "by God [not to] add to His Holy Days" was to the Jews, Hebrews, Israelites, specifically to the priests of the tribe of Levi. It did not have and still does not have anything to do with the celebrations of the birth of Jesus or His resurrection at Christmastime and Easter with all of the events, e.g., Lent, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, leading up to Easter as religious observances by faithful, believing Christians.
          How pathetically sad of you not to see these events tie direct to the events recorded and reported in the New Testament regarding the birth and the Passion of the Christ.
          I could cite multiple books, chapters and verses for you, but I will not waste my time on such an argumentative and useless critic as you.
          Thank you again for more evidence to use in the suit against you for defamation of character - "You are a boorish, immature doddering old fool, too full of himself to accept the Holy Spirit, or follow the guidance of the Bible you claim to know so well. I pity you, pagan." Your pity is badly and sadly misplaced. Look in a mirror.
          Oh wow, another outburst of your "Christianity - "ROFLMAO!!!"
          You lost the debate, failed in the discussion, pet, on the celebration of the birth of Jesus - Christ Mass aka Christmas. It's over. I will not continue to argue it with you endlessly or anything else on which you have defeated yourself already. I am not mad as a hatter, a raving lunatic as you are.
          LOL for you to speak of "manhood and intellect" are similar to the blasphemy of your speaking of the Bible, the Lord God, Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit. You lack "manhood" and are of such limited "intellect" you cannot even get the very clear evidence against you and your awful behaviors against the Lord God, Jesus the Christ and Holy Spirit, Christians and Christianity.
          So you stay on the attack, pet, and try it again one last time when you stand before the Judge on your Judgment Day.
          I have no intention of debating any of it with you ever again. You have lost, are lost and will remain so until and if you change your own mind using the free will God gave you to do so.
          Here's a suggestion that may be helpful for and to you: Don't believe me. Show your post interchanges to someone you know and trust, a friend if you have one, maybe your daughter of whom you have posted online. Ask her or their opinions, even in detail about who won or lost the debate, who comes across more as the Christian and more as the godless, Satan-driven pagan.
          Do you have the manhood, the intellectual honesty to do that? If so let me know how it turns out for you. If you don't do it all readers here and I will know who lacks manhood and intellect on these sites.

          "Also, you failed to know and understand the order "by God [not to] add
          to His Holy Days" was to the Jews, Hebrews, Israelites, specifically to
          the priests of the tribe of Levi."

          Uh-huh...and we're not supposed to bother with those old Laws and rules, since they were given to someone else, right? Same with those pesky Ten Commandments, right? I mean...they were given to the Jews, weren't they? They shouldn't apply to us, according to your "reasoning".

          Oh, but wait...there is that tiny issue of us being Christians, which means following Christ's example...and He followed those Laws, didn't He? And then there is whole issue of Galatians 3:8, where it states, "...there is neither Jew nor Gentile...", etc., and that we are all one in Christ. So, if we're going to follow His example, that would sort of mean we had to follow those "Jewish" Laws. Darn. You're wrong. AGAIN.

          You know, you demonstrating a rather lackadaisical attitude towards God's Laws is getting to a habit, Rhonda. You might want to look into that.

          You see, you can try your pseudo-legalistic approach, and look for loopholes all you want. I prefer to err on the side of caution. If I follow a Law that I'm not required to follow, I've lost nothing, and gained everything. You, on the other hand, by avoiding following as many Laws as you can, are losing everything, and gaining nothing.

          Good luck with that.

        • RonMar

          pet, please, we have already been over this.
          The order was to the Israelites, the Levitical priests. They have obeyed. They have not added Christmas and Easter to their Holy Days. Du-uh.
          "Uh-huh...and we're not supposed to bother with those old Laws and rules, since they were given to someone else, right? Same with those
          pesky Ten Commandments, right? I mean...they were given to the Jews, weren't they? They shouldn't apply to us, according to your "reasoning". - No, you are wrong. Your flaw in reasoning this time is you are trying to take a specific order to a specific people at a specific point in time and generalize it to things like the 10 Commandments, people and time it does not fit. The 10 Commandments clearly belong to all who follow God.
          "Oh, but wait ...." - Really, pet, did, do you expect Jesus the Christ to celebrate His own birth and resurrection anymore than He did?
          Lord, help me please. pet, Galatians 3:8 does not state,
          "'...there is neither Jew nor Gentile...', (sic) etc., and that we are all one in Christ."
          Galatians 3:8 says, "And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed (KJV)."
          So as with your 1 Timothy misuse of the Bible, "Darn. you're wrong. AGAIN." And you prove beyond any doubt what I have been saying all along - you don't know how to, can't read the Bible with any understanding at all. You misuse, abuse and commit blasphemy against God by trying to do so. Also you are nasty, mean and ill-tempered toward me and others about it in your arrogance and ignorance.
          Then you go on another of your insanity-proving, projection rants:
          "You know, you demonstrating a rather lackadaisical attitude towards God's Laws is getting to a habit [pet]. You might want to look into that.
          "You see, you can try your pseudo-legalistic approach, and look for loopholes all you want. I prefer to err on the side of caution. If I follow a Law that I'm not required to follow, I've lost nothing, and gained everything. You, on the other hand, by avoiding following as many Laws as you can, are losing everything, and gaining nothing.
          "Good luck with that."

        • petroskhan

          I'm going to start with the most glaringly idiotic part of your post. It was a tough contest, since so much of it is inane hot air, but...

          "And you prove beyond any doubt what I have been saying all along - you don't know how to, can't read the Bible with any understanding at all."
          And you prove once again that you're too stupid to deal with. You have heard of typos, right? You know the verse to which I'm referring, but you choose to "refute" the point by once again acting like a dull-witted child and avoid the direct issue. Fine, then answer the verse that we both know was the correct one, before patting yourself on the back for finding a typo, 3:28. Happy now, dipstick? Seriously, for someone who makes as many typos and grammatical errors as you do, and invents his own words, you seem awfully concerned with the accuracy of the posts of others. How 'bout you tend to that beam in your own eye, okay, Rhonda?

          "Your flaw in reasoning this time is you are trying to take a specific order to a specific people at a specific point in time and generalize it to things like the 10 Commandments, people and time it does not fit."

          Wow, you are really reaching there, Rhonda. The 10 Commandments were given to the Israelites. Just like the command to not practice paganism. But, just for the fun of it, let's go with your "thought", for lack of a better word.

          The commandment to not practice paganism doesn't apply to us, is what you're saying. So, you believe that you are free to add whatever pagan observances you want to God's Holy Days, because you're not a Jew? That's your position? Simple "yes" or "no" is all that is required.

        • RonMar

          What another Christian post you have made - Not!
          I repeat for you:
          Never forget our disagreement is over your attacking certain groups professing belief in the Lord, God, Jesus the Christ and Holy Spirit you have chosen to attack - Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and Seventh-Day Adventists - as well as other Christians, especially women, and Christianity in general.
          You cannot justify your attacks Biblically or any other way, though you have tired and failed at it.
          The facts are you got hurt by and angry at the SDA Church and church because like a petulant child you could not have your way. You left the Church and church after 30 years holding "important positions" according
          to you, and you have been unchurched since. No Christian church suits you. You are Satan-driven, a friend of atheists and other unbelievers in god.
          Don't you ever forget any of that. As you have made your mission attacks on the faith believer groups, Christians and
          Christianity in general, I have made part of my mission exposing you for what you are, and I do have Biblical justification for it, an abundance of justification from the Bible against you - John 13:34-35, John 15:12, 17, Rom 12:9-11, 13:8-9, 2Cor 13:10-12, Gal 5:12-14, Eph 4:2-3,
          1Th 3:11-13, 1Th 4:8-10, 1Th 5:12-14, 2Th 1:2-4, Heb 10:23-25, 1Pe 1:21-23, 1Pe 3:8-9, 1Pe 4:8-9, 1Pe 5:14, 1Jo 3:1-3, 1Jo 3:10-12, 1Jo 3:14, 16, 23, 1Jo 4:6-8, 1Jo 4:10-12; Matt 5:24-26, Matt 7:1-3, Luke
          6:36-38, Luke 12:56-58, Joh 5:21-23, Joh 12:47-49; 1Ti 1:3-4, 2Ti 2:14-15, 2Pe 2:1-5, 2Pe 2:12-13, 2Pe 2:17-19, Jude 1:4-6, from the 10 Commandments - Exo 20:16, Deut 5:20 - and a multitude of other Scriptures that condemn you.
          In fact you condemn yourself by your attacks on the faith groups you have chosen to attack, Christians in general, women in particular, and Christianity.
          Keep those facts and Scriptures foremost in your mind, pet, when you consider posting to me and others trying to argue your futile case, or you post some of your
          boasting and lies, lies you tell first to yourself.
          Deal with all of those Scriptures and facts, pet.
          I pray you come to your senses some day, see the errors of your ways, repent, beg forgiveness of God in the name of Jesus the Christ and be saved.
          You have no idea what I am saying just as you have no idea what the Bible says. You cannot hear me or read what I am actually saying to you - deaf, blind and dumb as you insist on being.
          All of the foregoing is your "simple 'yes or no.'"
          By the way, I asked, indeed urged you, to copy, paste and post the "many typos and grammatical errors" you assert I make in my posts. Prove your assertion, pet, or admit you are wrong and lying, the lies you tell yourself first and false assumptions you make habitually.
          You have failed again, pet, defeated yourself again.

          THAT needs to CHANGE.

        • Average Joe

          Being forced to make A cake for someone you consider against your religion is discriminating against your religion. That being said I'd have closed be fore the judge could have ruled. All that would have been necessary to get to that end is changing the name of your store and putting up A sign saying opening soon. Judge rules on the old name and your free as A bird to bake cakes for who you want. Making the fags find another baker or delay their un-godly wedding for another year while they fill A new suit. Meaning you gotta buy A new sign or just put the name up with chalk.

        • LeeP

          Now, how do you square that with the fact that Muslims require Sharia law as a part of what they call religion?

        • average joe

        • LeeP

          In point of actual fact, Sharia Law is an integral part of Islam. At the very least, they will claim that, as they have in Canada, France, Britain, Denmark, and other places. Australia and Russia are not having ANY of this, though.

          I hope we don't either.

        • $87984699

          A Muslim or anyone from a different religion would be someone "against" your religion. If you would make a cake for them, you are a hypocrite.

          I mean, it is a given that you are a hypocrite, but here is a specific example.

          It says to kill followers of other religions.

          1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

          2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

        • Average Joe

          While I am not A baker I do not do business with muslim's. The reason for this is past history. Sunday Oct. 23rd 1983 I was stationed with the 8th Marines I was in our bericks in Lebanon. While stretching out for the first time in 3 months on my bed (I'm rather tall and don't fit in navy racks) Some stinking muslim blew the hotel to kingdom come. Burring me and room mate under 60 tons of concrete. Two days later after they pulled me out I was shipped to Germany to the hospital. Six months of surgery's another year learning to walk.after I got back to the US. I don't tolerate muslims! If one set foot on my property he would be carried off with A rather large hole where his head used to be. Not all muslims are terrorist but 95% of terrorist are muslims. Since you can't tell one from the other I have only one response..

          Does that help?

          On the serious side, though, I do support the Kleins,and wish them well. I also think that business owner who wants to adhere to his faith should run his business as a private club, as I've stated and detailed elsewhere.

        • $87984699

          Then help me out. What was the joke? I am being serious, I do not see a joke in your comment.

          Living in a civil society is sometimes not easy. But most people would agree that getting along with others is better than fighting with others.

          Now, if you as a Christian, are flying across the country, and the airline you have booked a ticket on is owned by someone of another religion, can they make you remove your cross before boarding the plane? Would it make sense to refuse and miss your flight, and perhaps miss the event you were traveling to, just to make a point?

          Perhaps you might say yes. Now, if you were traveling for business and you upset a major client, could your boss fire you? Based on your posts, I would think you would say yes.

          But what has any of this accomplished? Are you less of a Christian if you do not wear your cross for a few hours? If you re going to take a medical test and you must remove your cross before the test because the metal will mess up the test, are you being less of a Christian?

          My point is that people make accommodations all day long. How does it impact the baker to bake a cake? He is not attending the wedding and his name is not on the cake.

          Asking someone to do their job seems rather benign.

        • petroskhan

          The only way for your question to make sense would be if it was a private plane, flown by the owner of the plane. Anything larger, and you're running into the realm of corporations, owned by stockholders, etc.

          So, going with your scenario, and the premise that it's an owner/operator business, then yes, it would make sense for him to ask that, since it might offend his religious convictions. I would, of course, choose another plane and pilot with which to do business. It's his plane, his rules. I respect that.

          Am I less a Christian for not wearing a cross? I don't actually wear one anyway. I don't personally see the need for it. I'm not required to by the Bible, nor do I feel the need to advertise my faith for all to see. When asked, I answer. Should the opportunity for dialog present itself, I take advantage. Other than that, I mind my own business, and expect others to do the same.

          Now, as for the cake...the couple was asking the Kleins to participate, to take an active, creative role in a ceremony that was against their religion. The Kleins asked the homosexual woman to take her business elsewhere, and she was free to do so. But in typical "in your face" hypocritical petulance, she wanted to get back at them, she wanted her revenge for the Kleins having the insufferable gall to actually have morals and standards (as she does not), and stick to them.

          "Asking someone to do their job seems rather benign." Really? How about asking a devout, Christian minister to officiate over their "wedding", when it specifically goes against the religion of the minister? After all, performing weddings is part of his job. You going to support suing him as well?

          The Kleins did nothing wrong. They simply declined to do business with someone. That's it.

          The homosexual did do something wrong. She decided to force someone to accept her lifestyle choice over their religious convictions, and sought not justice, but revenge. She wanted nothing more than that.

          If you're going to claim that she only wanted equality, she had it before she walked into the Kleins store - everyone has the option of shopping elsewhere. So did she. No one forced her to walk in to their shop, why should they be forced to accept her business?

          JJ, the anus is not a sex organ... the inside tissues of the anus are very delicately formed tissue which is for the purpose of reabsorbing water back into the bloodstream. Consider the slightest tear to the tissue. If that happens one --- at best -- will get septicemia, a serious infection in the blood from fecal matter. What if the feces carries other serious diseases... you know the rest.

        • $87984699

          That does not change the reality that some women experience orgasms from anal sex. And some men experience orgasm from having their prostate rubbed.

          If a god created people and he did not want them to engage in anal sex, it seems odd that he created a method for people to experience orgasms by having anal sex.

    So the title should read "Oregon's BLI Violates 1st Amendment, Prosecution Imminent". And the article should report the criminals' names.

    Business owners need to get wise to these fools. (1)Take their order, but charge them a price they wont want to pay. (2) Tell them you'll bake the cake but they'll have to pick it up on Thursday morning. because you're going out of town that weekend and will be closed Friday thru Sunday. (3) bake a cake that is just awful, perhaps come Friday, oops, plans changed at the last minute so we're open after all.

    • CARLjr

      NEVADA -
      During the 1999 Legislative Session, the legislature added prohibition of discrimination based on a person's actual or perceived sexual orientation in public and private employment and public accommodations to state law. In the 2011 Legislative Session, Republican Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval approved and signed into law three bills, A.B. 211, S.B. 331, and S.B. 368 which prohibit discrimination in areas of employment, housing and public accommodation on the basis of "gender identity or expression." S.B. 331 also prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex at public accommodations, and S.B. 368 also prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. All three laws took effect on October 1, 2011.

      TEXAS -
      The following Texas municipalities have ordinances prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity: Austin, Brownsville, Houston, Dallas, Dallas County, Fort Worth, and El Paso, San Antonio, and Walker County. The cities of Grand Prairie and Lubbock have ordinances prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation only.
      On May 11, 2001, Governor Rick Perry signed House Bill 587, popularly but unofficially known as the James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Act, which strengthened penalties for certain crimes motivated by a victim's race, color, disability, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, gender, or sexual preference.

    Jut wondering if this couple made visits to other bakeries in the surrounding area. My personal feeling is the owners should have baked the cake, and avoid all the confusion. I respect their strong religious belief's,, but also, as a former all business owner, I would have baked the cake and avoided the issue. Imagine if business owners had ethnicity issues.? No cake for Italians,Irish, Jewish,Polish,Etc. A little common sense is in order.

    • Don't Even Try It!

      We should all have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. It's their business! If they can make enough money to stay in business without some customers, that is fine...if not, they'll go out of business. It is the business owner's choice.

    Americans have not been divided not treated so tyrannically in all our history as a nation. When governments continually overstep their bounds, tyrannizing and persecuting the people in the process, there is but one solution. This government has grown so corrupt that it's way past the point of listening to the will of the people, in any sense of the term. Revolution is imminent and inevitable, s seen by by any but the most apathetic and ignorant. There is no other solution, no other process of reconciliation between Washington DC and the American people. They have grown communistic in nature and only force will be understood by them at this point.

          Well, I am 75 years old. You should read my book, BLACK ROBES, which can be found on Amazon. Back in the early 90s I did file a civil suit (2) on judges, lawyers, representatives and Governor Tom Ridge along with the State Attorney General Ernie Preate. I also filed criminal charges on a couple judges along with a few lawyers and children and youth employees.
          One could say I lost however I got what I wanted. A few of those representatives lost elections and two of them went to jail along with the attorney general. (not sure what I did sent them there but it might have helped). The senator Pro Tem lost his bid for reelection. That all took place in PA. I now live in Florida and I go bass fishing, play golf, pitch horseshoes at our club (I am a national member) and I write books. I have had 6 published so far and I am writing 3 more.
          I figure it is time for the rest of the world to stand up and be counted. I also served 23 years in the US Army. I am a Ranger combat veteran Vietnam. I retired in 78. So, how much do I have to give to an ungrateful people? Just asking.
          And the sign in the picture is absolutely correct. Judges do destroy families because that is what they are supposed to do.

  • Lee Riffee

    Unfortunately I think businesses are going to have to start finding creative (and fully legal, at least in places that have these sorts of contradictory laws) ways to dodge this sort of thing. One easy way is to simply be "too busy". "Oh, so you're wedding is next August? Oh. well, sorry, we are booked solid thru the end of 2106"
    Or, as someone else suggested - price them out - quote an impossibly high price that they could never hope to pay. I have heard of taxidermists doing this all of the time when they don't want to mount someone's pet - they just quote a crazy high price to get the person to go elsewhere. And as far as I know, there are no laws against this sort of thing unless it has to do with goods (not services) that are marked way up because they are scarce and there is some kind of crisis, like generators after a hurricane.

    A third way would be to take the deposit, and then have some kind of "emergency" that would prevent the service from being provided on time, but that is probably risky because people can sue if someone backs out of a contract in many cases.

    Probably the first two are the best options - good luck in suing to get around those! And it is probably easier for Christians (and others who don't want to be involved in anyway) to avoid such issues then it is for businesses to avoid being forced to provide birth control to employees.

    But what I also think might happen is we may end up with "right to practice a business" states, sort of like there are "right to work" states. These would be states that legally protect people of faith from these kinds of attacks (and not just "religious institutions", and then those people will flee the libtard trash states for the free states.

          Read chapter 17 in the Book of Revelation this Great Whore reigned for 1260 years murdering and torturing anyone who wouldn't bow down to her, especially those Christians who kept the teachings of Jesus and his Apostles. Scriptures are clear this system will rise again with that same power (Satanic one world religion) as it had previously. This system is the cause of all the confusion in Christianity today, yet it is forming right before our eyes and seemingly very few are aware and the majority don't even care, because they believe they will be gone by the time the bad stuff begins to happen. Someone will surely tell me this Great Whore is Islam, no way Islam never belonged to God in the first place so as to become a whore, Islam doesn't have harlot daughters, the only thing Islam has in common with these prophecies is it is anti-Christ. The deniers will keep on denying and the Jew haters will blame it all on the Jews until it's too late. If you want the truth read the history of the so-called Holy Roman Empire; how it came about, it's Babylonian Doctrines, where it's many rituals, relics originated. The Scriptures don't tell us what role Islam will play in this endtime event, but Islam and this whore are merging, it's name is Chritlam, their role might be to do the beheadings which is shown to happen and since they are pros at this already its possible they will be the ones providing this service for the Great Whore.

          That whore had her share of practice at beheadings as well, throughout history, even made a machine to increase the efficiency of it, if you recall: Madame Guillotine. And that whore is uniting with Islam, on several levels, so are the harlot daughters. As for being gone before the "bad stuff" starts happening, I'm not so sure, at least not all of it; I suspect we well be around for some of it, but shielded, and that many who believe they'll be taken out WILL be in for a huge surprise all the way around; that they won't be going at all. I also suspect Islam is going to give us the anti-Christ; that he will be the one the Muslims also call the 12th Imam, seeing as how Satan/Allah will be the source of both, and the characteristics are close enough to be one in the same. That they're a tool God is using to chastise His children, both Christian and Hebrew, goes without saying; and that they're being used by Satan as well is also clear.

        While the founding of America was a somewhat liberal concept, it is historically inaccurate to call most of them "liberal". I used to think as you do, but a moderate examination of America's history has shown them to be depressingly conservative.

          A Conservative wants to keep things the same. A Liberal wants to change them. Therefore, the Founders were Liberals. Now, given that the USA has endured as a country, people who want to keep the this country the same are now called Conservatives.

          In the Soviet Union, the communists were called Conservatives since they did not want to change the Soviet Union.

        • Progressive Republican

          As I implied earlier, they were vaguely liberal in that they created a new nation and this, by necessity, requires change. However, they maintained the whole "landed aristocracy" thing by only allowing white landowners to vote. Additionally, various amount of wealth were required to run for various offices with the more powerful offices (say, Governor) requiring a greater level of personal wealth (than, say, mayor). The size of the township also had something to do with personal wealth requirements.

          Zinn's "People's History of the United States", among others, refers to this sad fact.

        • Marie

          The revolution brought bold moves by a population of people who basically had no security to speak of. A breaking of traditions were bold moves though stressful to the fledgling new republic. Consider all the angst that was experienced by just the efforts of John Adams evidenced by the personal communications with his wife and Thomas Jefferson, his trips to Amsterdam to borrow money to pay for the war and to set up the new governments, about which he had intense reservations, etc., his meeting in Tripoli. While they did not do completely what is right as you point out, they did put it in writing to do the right thing. Read the U.S. Constitution.

        • Progressive Republican

          If by, "The revolution brought bold moves by a population of people who basically had no security to speak of." you're referring to the average person (read; non-landowner) then I'm afraid that's not the case. Conscription was typically cognizant of wealth as had been the case with the British. If your family had enough money to get you out of it, then okay.

          There were even instances of its codification on both sides. Memories of the impressment riots against the British were still vivid when the American navy began pulling the same crap. The high level of class-consciousness remained.

          One significant effect of the war was to reduce (or delay a bit, sometimes) conflict between rich and poor, but sometimes things broke loose. Inflation sometimes ran rampant and the poor were driven to taking matters into their own hands more than once (such as lynching profiteers).

          While better off than slaves or indentured servants or Indians, the majority of white colonists could thus be wooed into the Revolutionary coalition. However, when the sacrifices of war became more bitter, the privileges and safety of the (upper-class) officers became increasingly hard to swallow. The war was generally a struggle for office and power between members of the two upper-classes: the new vs. the established.

          At the outset of the war general enthusiasm for it was not really there. Eventually much of the white male population fought but only a small fraction stayed. Historian John Shy estimated that only one-fifth of the population was actively treasonous and that they tired of local safety committees, corrupt supply officers, and, "ragged strangers with guns in their hands calling themselves soldiers of the Revolution".

          Gen. Washington's then-aide Alexander Hamilton dispair of his fellow countrymen's desire for freedom caused him to write, "If we are to be saved, France and Spain must save us."

          This is just the tip of the iceberg. The level of revolutionary fervor I remember being (at least) implied by me schoolteacher(s) was simply not there.

        • Marie

          There are descriptions in McCullough's 1776 that indicate George Washington's efforts and success to rile our forces... on the Hudson... if memory serves... to stunningly defeat a much better-equipped King's forces. I really thought I was reading a valid account, but of course the book is not in great detail as one would find in a professiinal journal, although I hope .that the account, in essense, is real.

        • Progressive Republican

          McCullough's "1776" is primarily from a military standpoint. I'd be surprised if there were more than even a passing reference to economic factors. Washington was a clearly more-than-competent leader and capable of inspiring his men.

          He could also be pretty canny. The War created a LOT of disaffection between lower and upper classes in the ranks; what with officers being promised half-pay for life for those who stuck it out, while the common soldier was typically ignored (suffering in the cold, dying of sickness, not getting paid, a pay scale so low that their pay was often eaten by inflation, watching private profiteers get rich, etc.).

          Things got so bad that on New Year's Day, 1781, a group of (possibly rum-emboldened) Pennsylvania troops killed one of their captains, wounded others, and dispersed the lot. They then marched fully armed toward the Continental Congress in Philadelphia.

          Worried that this rebelliousness might spread to his own troops, he ordered that no force be used. After requesting a list of their grievances and suggesting that Congress NOT leave the city, he then ordered Henry Knox to go get three months' pay for the men; half of whom were subsequently furloughed and the other half discharged after successful negotiations.

          Shortly thereafter a smaller mutiny occurred in Hew Jersey and Washington was more prepared. This time he had 600 well-fed and -clothed men surround and disarm the 200 mutineers. Three ringleaders immediately went on trial in the field. One was pardoned. The other two were executed by firing squads made up of their friends who reportedly wept while pulling the triggers to set "an example", according to Washington.

          Say what you will, the guy knew when and how to keep a tight leash .His abilities to use inspiration or to inspire fear were pretty successful.

          I had the impression he was a decisive, respected, and effective leader.. From your description, also beneficial in protecting the hard won republic from disintigration by drunk, lazy, armed people who were the opposite. I guess what I heard was true. Now I know anothrr reason why. My understanding is that the republice was broke but France was mad at us about not helping them with their Infian wars and refused us more aid... and we owed them lots alreday. Also we were paying huge ramsom to the Turks to let our ships by the pirates of Tripoli. We needed more money and John Adsms got some from Amstersam. Back then, we had residual aristocrats, those who had a sense of the big picture from their top tier education. We seem to be dealing with the same issues today.

        • Progressive Republican

          Indeed. He was all of these, if a bit brutal by our standards today. Additionally to what you pointed out, he was instrumental in preserving the country against the flaws of the Articles of Confederation.

          One of the HUGE issues facing a new America was repayment of out debt to France, among others. The Articles didn't allow Congress the authority to actually do much of anything about anything including the debt, except to make a lot of noise. Requests from Congress to the states wentg (essentially), "Hey! Guys! We got this debt here! France would sure be keen on getting their money back!"

          The states were less than interested. They were too busy squabbling about things like exchange rates of currencies from state to state, how much my ounce will weigh vs. your ounce, where different states' roads would meet, and other stuff like that.

          Had the states acted in their own enlightened self-interests, as expected, we likely would not have the constitution which gave broad, centralized power to the congress, and it's quite possible that the French Revolution would not have happened sine the U.S. would have repaid the debt to France and the Napoleonic wars that devastated Europe would likely not have happened.

          All this helped pave the way to Hitler's rise to power as well as possibly the Soviets. All because the states couldn't/wouldn't cooperate in the way the Founders intended.

      • $87984699

        I have thought about it. Your view of life allows people to refuse service to blacks and Mexicans. Your view of life allows banks to refuse to make home loans to women. Your view of life allows the KKK to inform businesses that if they allow blacks or Jews to conduct business, they will be targeted.

        Your view of life allows people to be asses for no other reason than they dislike a certain group of people.

        • http://www.truthanchor.com/ Thessalonianguy

          It must be very painful to be as prejudiced as you are. You assume a lot in your statements. You don't know me, have never talked to me and have no idea what my life outlook was, or is, about.
          To clarify for you, I am a Christian (not religious), and serve my Father to the best of my ability. My older Brother Jesus gives me wisdom and grace through the power of the Holy Spirit to daily do those things which please my Father. Things like living with love, honor, respect and compassion. I try to deal these out to everyone I meet, whether I personally agree with their lifestyle choices or not. Why do I do that? Because my Father (who LOVES you enough to warn you of the consequences of sin), wants me to show that same love.

          Please don't confuse someone's race (an inalterable fact of genetics) with perverse sexuality (a personal choice). I still pray for those who follow those lusts, as well as murders, adulterers, liars, etc., but I don't have to associate ,myself with them. Sin is sin is sin, and unless someone repents their end will be the same.

          I suspect that you have had a lot of contact with plenty of RELGIOUS people, but not likely many CHRISTIAN people.

        • $87984699

          My view on life is not painful at all. It is based on reality.

          A few things;
          1. I would love to see the scientific reports (plural, you will notice) that conclusively and scientifically 'prove' homosexuality is a genetic trait.
          2. The APA reference is absurd, having nothing to do with science. Those clowns seem to think that EVERYTHING is a complex, a neurosis, a disorder, etc., etc., etc. At least fully half of them are insane themselves.
          3. Since it is now fashionable and politically convenient to laud homosexuality, the AMA and the APA are (of course) only to willing to go along with the gag - no pun intended. They only want to impress those who hold the purse strings, and don't really care much for true science.
          Have you ever worked with anyone involved with the AMA? Fortunately (or unfortunately - you choose) I do, and on a daily basis. It has LONG AGO stopped being a body seeking medical excellence and has devolved into the political apparatus it is now.

        • $87984699

          Science never proves anything. It can show that nothing has refuted it , but that does not prove it. Surely, you with all your scientific knowledge already knew this?

          You can dismiss the APA if you want. You have any support for your opinion? Or is it just an opinion?

          So you think that medicine only goes with what is fashionable? Then why do they not go with all the diet pills? Those are fashionable.

          Nope, never worked with anyone in the AMA. I also never worked with anyone from NASA. However, until I am presented actual evidence and not opinion that they are not valid groups, I have no reason to believe you.

          So, what actual evidence do you have? Surely you have something?

        • Marie

          It's true. Science is about observation and repeatability. the essence of the scientific method and what separates us from the ancient "sciences" of Yin and Yang of the Chinese.and the alchemy of the Egyptians. True science was developed in the West although alchemy (but not the earlier schemes) involved some experimentation only. Alchemy did profess some things that were spiritual in nature so --- just like creationism --- of course, although they are our contemporaries, they do not adhere to the scientific method. Alchemy and creationism are not pure science as we have developed it and we know it today.A caveat to Creationism: As long as the scientific method of experimentation, observation, hypothesis, repeatability and lastly theory are the particulars in finding truth, there will be people performing tasks incorporating these and finding truth. There is no stopping the human race from continuing the quest. Each new generation brings to the fore new ideas and as long as we are not stifled in teaching the young we will have more science, and no alchemy-like (creationist) occupations.

          "It's true. Science is about observation and repeatability. the essence of the scientific method and what separates us from the ancient "sciences"......"

          Let's see if I got this right. Evolution has never been observed, and has NEVER been replicated or repeated in a lab or any where in the world by any scientific observation or test data...EVER! It cannot be replicated or observed as ever happening then or now. FACT.

          So based on your definition, evolution must be a faith based religion. It does not meet any scientific criteria...only faith. So evolution meets the definition of a religion, and should not be taught in schools.

          Now we agree on something. I was wondering if you were ever going to come out of that coma and finally admit that evolution cannot be proven by any science methodology, observation and repeatability.

          I'll spread the word that you have finally come around and accepted the fact that God created the heaven and earth all by Himself.

As far as I can see it being gay is a matter of choice. I know this is a matter of fact and reality. Another reality is that their is only one race on this planet. It is the human race, which consists of many different people of different backgrounds and are of the two genders. Now, being a Christian or any other faith doesn't necessarily mean one is religious. There are differences for instances I don't go to this building called a church to worship God, I don't talk to a priest in order to speak to God.

          Sexuality is not black and white. There are straight people and gay people and bi-sexual people. There are people who are born with both penises and vagina's. Is a hermaphrodite a male or a female?

        • Guest

          Oh, but you did say sexuality was the same as race, which you were wrong to say. I refer to everyone one of us as humans and as one race. Sadly though there are those out there in the world who think otherwise. You do make a point about the hermaphrodites. I knew one in high school and did even know it until years later. I had heard that things like that happened, but rarely. Even my gay friend said so, but we both completely disagreed with you when it came down to gays being considered a race. C'mon, black and white people can not change the color of their skin. But homosexuals or heterosexuals can change their sexuality by choice. There is no denying that. If you want to make a case out of it then make it a case of discrimination over ones sex not race. And calling one racist or sexist for having a difference of opinion is not right either.

        • Edward Ebersole

          Oh, but you did say sexuality was the same as race, which is a big fat lie. My gay friend and I agreed there when we read your one post. Here is a reality check black and white people can not change the color of their skin. This is a fact, yet we do have other different colored people in between, because of the different breeds, one might say, of people being able to intermingle. Another reality check, homosexuals and heterosexuals can willing change their sex by choice. It is a matter of choice and not a natural means of survival. My gay friend refers to this path as a preferred alternative for some people. Finally, yes there are bisexual people. They regardless of their deformity are human and should be treated as such. What they are is unfortunate and ultimately they must decide for themselves what they are.

          Up until 1973, homosexuality, aka perversion, was classified as a mental disease and being treated as such by health care professionals. Because the disease has been removed from the DSM ll, they can no longer teat the affliction much less have insurance pay for it....so it's not treated.

          It's a medical fact that homosexuality is and always will be a mental disease, no matter what the little deviants believe.

          Just come out about your mental illness...you'll feel better about yourself.....others will just avoid you.

          If YOU want to open a business that excludes all heterosexuals, women, kids, ect., that is your privilege since it is YOUR money & YOUR risk.

          I choose to serve everbody because I am a Conservative Christian Capitalist. Baking a cake or opening a door for someone does not mean that you agree with what they are celebrating or thinking. My Christian family came from Turkey, where Islam has crypto-ruled for decades under the facade of secularism. That existence, made me thank God for America. I would have baked the best cannoli wedding cake in the world for that couple for 1/2 price knowing full well that all their wedding guests would pay top dollar to buy my stuff. Life sometimes hands you a lemon. A bad businessman sees a lemon, a good businessman sees, lemonade, lemon air fresheners, lemon cologne, lemon juice. lemon rind flavoring etc... All you posting that you wouldn't serve somebody you do't like, have never owned or operated a business. Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart has two rules for the way you treat customers.
          1. The Cusomer is ALWAYS Right.
          2. In case you are sure that the Customer is wrong,
          refer to Rule # 1.

        • Flybob

          Your view of life is that YOU get to tell people like me what is right and what is wrong. That is NOT freedom. You don't want to discriminate then don't. If I want to discriminate then I WILL MORON! The government has NO business being involved. The market ill take care of the rest. YOU do NOT get to tell me what is right and what is wrong. If I own a business (the definition of "own" is have sole care, control and responsibility for) then I'LL decide who and when I can do what I want with it. YOUR version is that the owner can be FORCED to do as told which is TYRANNY! I personally would rather die fighting tyranny than accept it. An for the record, YOU are the ass for trying to MAKE ME do YOUR BIDDING!

        • $87984699

          I am not telling you to do anything. If you want to be a bigot, then be a bigot. However, there are laws on the books that make certain actions illegal. These laws have been passed because certain groups have been routinely discriminated against, most likely by people like you.

          In a civil society, people get along better when they are not being unfairly treated.

          And the ironic thing is, you know this. When you go out to dinner, I doubt you crap in the sink in the bathroom or toss your plate of food onto the people eating at the next table. Rude behavior is not accepted.

          Well, the same holds true in the workplace.

          It is ONE thing to be averse to serving a black, Mexican, or make loans to women. These are NOT against YOUR religion, just manifestations of YOUR personal prejudice!

          However, it is ANOTHER thing to be forced to provide an item, service, whatever, that is anathema to your own religion or upbringing. Say you own a plastics manufacturing company, and you and your employees are of a religion which requires NO display of nether regions of bodies. You are given an order for life-size penises to mold and manufacture.... would you? In another case, you are a Jewish cabinet maker, and someone wants one with SWASTIKAS chiseled into the door! This makes you literally vomit! Are you STILL supposed to do this, DESPITE your revulsion? Or, you are a Catholic company, and manufacture drugs, and someone orders a drug for euthanasia. Do you fill the order?

          Last, as someone has mentioned, would you expect a MUSLIM baker to bake a cake celebrating what in their religion is ALSO forbidden, as did the Christian baker? If you can honestly say yes, then go to the Muslim baker, and see what they say! By the way, I wouldn't expect them to be very nice about it!

        • $87984699

          There are many Christians who think that blacks descended from Cain and that the mark that god put on him was his black skin color. So, yes, one can be against black people and it can be against their religion.

          If Muslims want to discriminate, they can expect to see legal actions taken against them as well.

        His entire mentality is one of entitlement and self service; the template of atheist and perverts throughout the nation. He actually believes in his importance and therefore we should all kneel down to his self serving selfish thinking and religion. He is the only one in his peanut brain that has the right to refuse an idea, belief, way of life, or what is fair....no one else. Just JJABD. The Self Made god.

          Yahoo is a private business to which the First Amendment does not apply. Yahoo's deletion of your comments is not a violation of the First Amendment. We're saying that it's wrong for the government to force a bakery, a private entity, from doing business with people who behave in ways they don't like- well, Yahoo is private property and thus can do what it wants with its property, including deleting messages off its servers. If the government were pressuring Yahoo, then it's a different matter.

          You're exactly right, and not the first person on the site to agree. Even the lawyers agree...but never in writing or public.

          We allow judges and lawyers to rule us, and just like drugs, until we remove the money connection, it won't be about justice. This is nothing more then legalized robbery of society, government and industry.

          The kids suffer, the family suffers, and the parents suffer. The lawyers and judges are happy. What's wrong with this picture?

          The $15-20K is cheap. I have friends who've paid, between the husband and wife attorney, over $100K. The more they delay, debate and stall, the more money they make and the less money and support goes to the kids. Divorce is a huge business. Notice I said business. It has nothing to do with justice....never has. It's about billing hours.

          You're right. Divorce is NOT the problem. It's marriage.

          Imagine hiring a contractor to build you a house and pay him by the hour, and he gets to take however long he wants to build the house and is not responsible or accountable for the construction; so if the house falls down or breaks, he still gets paid. If you piss him off, he has the right to walk off the job taking your money and leaving the project unfinished...and for the most part he knows he can't be sued as none of his butt buddies would ever sue a fellow butt buddy, and you couldn't afford to sue anyway. By now you're broke and living in the back of your car.

          If you want to defeat a country, you don't need guns....you just need an army of lawyers and judges.

          True dat. 70% of Californians voted against gay marriage. That means a majority of black and Hispanic democrats said no.

          A judge told them their opinions don't matter and the militant gays attacked conservatives for voting against it. Again liberals and math do not mix.

          There are not enough republicans or conservatives in California to stop gay marriage. It was the minorities who said no.

          Liberals ignored the facts on the ground as always and paid off a judge to get what they wanted.

      A true Christian would never glorify vice and enable it. That is WHY we have a Constitution protecting our freedom of religion and association. Sodomizing others is always an evil Vice---nothing more--and we should NEVER glorify such evil, degrading use of the body. Knowingly making the cake---and what if you had children--that act would "teach" them that sodomy is "good" and a "Right from God" (which it is NOT)--- that you do not stand by your beliefs and glorify evil----or are ready to give up beliefs for money. It is evil.

      • Athanasios1

        I would bake you a cake too Susan, even though you pass judgement on others. Remember The Lords Prayer?

        • Susan

          You "think" that people are not to use their minds to "discriminate"??????? They would not live for a day. You do realize that "Reason" makes us into the image of God and separates us from animals and that Reason is to RULE BASE INSTINCTS.

          You do realize that it is essential for "Wisdom" to discern between Good and Evil---and the Bible commands us to pursue the Truth/Good and Wisdom. You do not EVER embrace sin.

          Pastor Bonhoeffer who remarked on the "religionless" Christianity in Nazi Germany stated: "To be silent in the face of Evil, is itself, evil; to not speak, is to speak; to not act, is to act."

          You NEVER "act" like evil is "good"---and you NEVER ENABLE the evil of sodomizing others, so you never "bake" a beautiful cake for the mocking of God and God's Design of the human body!

        • Athanasios1

          Susan, I will only say this in closing. Baking a "Wedding" cake is not evil. A cake is NOT part of any religious sacrament Christian or Judaic. So please run your own business, out of business and not mine.

          You are such a dummy!!!!! The GOVERNMENT shut down a person for exercising their Freedom of Association and Religion. It is unconstitutional to FORCE people to honor EVIL BEHAVIORS.

          Justice is a ALWAYS A Virtue and Just Law can never be JUST and promote VICE, like the vile use of the body when people use organs in such degrading, insane ways.
