    If that's true, that's horrible. It doesn't seem like they have the same respect for free speech and religious freedom we do. I've noticed a lot of the same things in Germany. They outright ban certain political parties and you can not legally sing certain songs, say certain words, or make certain hand gestures.

    In order to get a job at my university, which is considered a government job, oddly enough, you have to sign a bunch of documents saying you've never been affiliated with about 300 organizations, including scientology and Die Linken, which is the far left party currently in government. Imagine Texas requiring workers to sign documents saying they've never been, and never will be, a democrat.

    I've got this crazy notion that people have a right to non-violently express themselves, as they have a right to free speech, religion, and domain over their own bodies.

    The public outcry has been pretty much "pro-Phil" and "pro-free speech."

    Progressives can go cry now...

    haven't tried, actually....

    Rather, I meant discussing something like this "news" bit regarding one of the people involved. There are far more important things that should be on the news, but I suppose this is an easy thing to blather about during the holiday season. Nothing too critical.

    What I am 'doing' is being honest, and no worries...there is NO WAY that being honest could possibly be related to you. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

    He was reprimanded and punished at his job for telling his religious beliefs. I call that stepped on. You liberals may be loving it, seeing a man be financially impacted for being a Christian. But I may remind you that it is his right.

    Just another level of dishonesty eh Joe? Come on man.

    And using the bible to say gays are wrong doesn't make it not homophobic.
    That's right. It does not make it homophobic. But one has to understand what they are talking about before criticizing that which they obviously know little about.

    The Bible says a lot of things we no longer accept. Nor should we.
    Who in the hell are you to decide what people should believe? When will you liberals learn that not everyone has to believe things exactly like you do....That you don't accept the bible, and think that is proper is your choice, but to look down on others because they do, or to make such an arrogant statement as "nor should we", is asinine....

    I'd read more New Testament if I were you guys. Just saying.
    "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. 3"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye?

    I think the argument in Canada that requires clergy to officiate over gay marriages has to do with the status of a government credentialed marriage officiator. Once the clergy member is duly authorized by the government to preform weddings, they become agents of the government and as such may not tell anyone they won't.

    I might be wrong however. Just going by what was told to me by a minister who moved here from Canada. I haven't been able to independently verify this but it sounds plausible.

    Some people only appreciate the rights of of like minded people. If you disagree with their view, or if it is a right they dont believe in they wont support that right at all. In fact they will encourage the suppression.

    Oh..wait...thats right. You already know your comments regarding blacks are lies but as you said yesterday...you are going to mindlessly cling to your lies and ignore what was ACTUALLY said. I forgot for a second. Busy day. Carry on.
    He also made weird comments about a "man's anus" and how he couldn't fathom how anyone could prefer it, and "morphed out" to compare homosexuality to beastiality. Not sure which book of the Bible THAT'S from.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
