    We'll just have to let this experiment play out for 30 years and see how many more people come on board as Totalitarian Liberalism keeps advancing in its goal of oppressing more and more people.
    You forgot to include the eons when Homosexuality was not considered a mental disease. It is better said that the 100 year experiment is over.

    It is even more amazing how long hate and ignorance can hold out.

    Re: Arizona anti-gay bill vetoed by governor

    I have not said much about this topic becaue I just cant get my head around why anyone thinks taking picutures of gay people getting married, or making them a cake, or serving them a cheesburger on the way home afterwords somehow infringes on thier religious rights. I have read this thread and quite a bit about the bill, but what kind of state is Arizona? I cant beleive a bill that is simply antigay, got that far. It is amazing. If they were really so worried about they would not photograph weddings which were not first marriages, there are just so many sins and sinners out there, why just pick on gay people?

    well im a smart religious person and i realize that my faith and my personal relationship with god and religion has NOTHING to do with my fellow americans rights nor should it ever.

    well religion may have some impact on my personal feelings I fully understand that those influences should not be applied to rights when they could effect others that do not share my religion, opinions beliefs or may have different ones of thier own.

    legal marriage has nothing to do with religion and vice versa
    equal rights for gays has nothing to do with religion and vice versa
    my religion is for me, my religion is personal and my business thats it

    this is what some people have issue with

    they QUICKLY and HYPOCRITICALLY forget that the very rights that protect them and protect us all is what allows them to have thier religion but many arent happy unless its thier religion that drives everything.

    anyway religion is NOT the problem at all, no more the republican, democrats etc are the problem.

    Bigots, haters, hypocrites and people that dont care about whats actually good for rights and freedom are the problem.

    also hate and bigotry in any name is still hate and bigotry

    Yes a right that stops when it invades the rights of others.



    Public businesses are not the same as you home.
    So, a straight couple should be able to go to a gay owned bakery and order a straight pride themed cake? It should be illegal to refuse them service?

    How about a white couple that orders a white pride themed cake from a black owned bakery?

    Or, a black photographer that is hired to work a KKK wedding? The law should force him to do it?

    Its not anti-gay. It was an attempt to expanded to individuals an existing law that's been on the books since 1999, which was put into place by numerous states following the overturning of the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 1997, which was signed into law in 1993 following a near unanimous vote in both chambers of Congress.
