Why the Catholic Church and ‘gay marriage’ cannot coexist - CNA Blog
As far as your comments on infidels, we have laws on the books that do not tolerate physical attacks on other persons.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
That's a matter of opinion. In my opinion all Public Accommodation laws as applied to private businesses should be repealed and the market place allowed to deal with those model their businesses on discriminatory practices.
The fact is that our opinion does not reflect reality, the laws exist. A person that finds it morally wrong to sell to a gay person should get no more an Special Discrimination Privilege under the law as opposed to a person that finds it morally wrong to sell to a black person. The solution isn't to band-aid the problem and slap a special exception to discrimination and allow it only if the individual "claims" a "religious believe".
The long term solution is to repeal such laws and let the market sort it out. Ya it will be messy, ya some people will be pissed, ya some people will be discriminated against - but such is the price of freedom and recognizing the property rights of the business owner.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
The Judge didn't play "legislator". The Colorado legislature passed the State Public Accommodation law which includes sexual orientation. The law was previously posted in the thread. The State Judge ruled in accordance with the State Law.
Sounds like you wanted him/her to rule against what the law said. You want the Judge to overrule the legislature and be an activist judge?
