    its an honest question.

    if you believe that employers have the right to discriminate, what is an ethnicity or racial group supposed to do if all the employers in a state decide to not hire anyone from that group?

    first off, if the population base is so full of bigotry against a particular subset of people, you aren't going to find any legislative help for them in the first place, so the notion that we could solve such a problem politically is a non-starter. Hence me laughing at this absurdity. if everyone hates the group to that level, they will have no protection in the courts.

    but if such an absurd hypothetical did exist, they would be employing each other, so the jobs would be coming from within.

    many companies in NY used to have a "no-Jew" policy.

    do you think that is just, right, and fair?

    "All men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, be them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

    Clearly, the right to find a home, a job, and make a purchase should not be limited based on someone race, religion, gender, etc etc. Such would violate the promise of America.

    I am saddened when I hear Libertarianism defend the right to discriminate against people based on something they have no choice over, rather then defending those who are suffering the discrimination.

    I am just as opposed to discrimination but I don't think empowering the state is a good long term remedy to ending these forms of discrimination.

    After New York Vote, Bachmann Suggests Constitutional Amendment Against Gay Marriage - FoxNews.com

    Michelle Bachmann wants to leave gay-marriage to each individual state....and yet she also wants a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marrriage.

    Now that's what I call, a flip-flop.

The little cartoon about facts about gay people, I am sure people have heard before. The rest is just stories of people who have a gay family member. Not to say this movie didn't make me close to tears at points, I just don't think I would spend another hour and a half of my life to rewatch it or suggest anyone watch it, if they have heard ANYTHING about the gay rights movement. It also does not really address people quoting scripture other than saying, "I read it differently". Don't be a literalist.

    That being said, I am in support of gay marriage and am thrilled to hear the NY passed this bill.
    Really? You think your view is the world view? And it's not as simple as "people with gay kids." It's strongly religious, spiritual people with gay kids.

    We do have NABLA out there wanting to have sex with kids.

    The Governor said he'll sign it now so that's a done deal.
    Jesus was a homosexual. He hung around with 12 other guys, had nothing but "love" for them, never married, and even let a bunch of stinky priests nail him in his youth.

    It's funny how some people are gung ho about state's rights until one of them goes a way that they don't agree with and then they are all about trampling on that state's rights.
