    Finding a response to that was only marginally more difficult than answering the challenge, "What...is your favorite color?"

    I know you have all the answers so keep doing what you do. I knew an individual who exercised their rights once and the word got out not a company would hire them because of the potential mess they might cause.

    These are not issues of defending immorality or bad behavior.

    You're comparing common sense to immoral.

    That is the clumsiest attempt at a No True Scotsman I've ever seen....ever. You were asked how you felt about the ACLU defending Christian rights, you responded you'd let him know if you learn of any such cases, I provided those cases.

    So...how do you feel about that ACLU defending Christians?

    The cases you quoted are so "vanilla" that they don't meet the true definition of defending. The aclu has a very dubious track record towards Christianity and it's symbols. They almost always fight to remove Christianity from public places and where they have defended it it's more of a speech issue rather than a religious on, nice try though.

    That's true. We are comparing common sense things like equality under the law to immoral religious nonsense. But the first amendment even protects immoral religious nonsense. That's why no one is assaulting your churches (and of course you don't care about mosques or synagogues) and why you will never face legal discrimination for your religious beliefs. The people you are trying to trample are already displaying a higher moral fiber than you and yours.
