    That's state sanctioned discrimination because of sexual orientation, youre free to be a bigot all you want! Ask the WBC...

    Yes I am, because deprivation of voting rights was done by individuals who had what you call "core beliefs", as well as the government, which makes it extremely germane to this discussion. Or would you rather believe that the Ku Klux Klan was a governmental organization?

    but an individual that hires people and does not wish to provide insurance to gay spouses is individual bigotry. we are specifically talking about that tangent, which you possibly missed coming in mid debate?

    Put a red bow on a sheep, it changes your perspective on that.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What did the courts have to do with it? Doesn't Title II of the Civil Rights act protect people from being discriminated by businesses due to skin color? Wouldn't that be the legislator?

    but voting it is an issue specific to government.

    health care private employers provide has nothing to do with govenrment functions.

    So you would support an indvidual offering health insurance to married gay couples yet denying it to married heterosexual couples right?

    Who wants to marry somebody incapable of getting of a decent job, has no assets, will die in 8 to 12 years, and you will have to pick their crap up in a baggy? Hugh Heffner is a better catch than that, and he is disgusting...

    the civil rights act would of never been constitutional without the courts incorporating "some' of the bill of rights and applying them to the states.

    YOU are the one who brought up the "fact" that it is OK to discriminate, based on core beliefs. I am knocking that pillar down to the ground. Individuals deprived people of their voting rights too, and it was based on their core beliefs.
