    LOL....NP.....you aren't going to like the answer. Even Scalia knows the writing in on the wall. Your only hope is that it doesn't come before the Supreme Court anytime soon....and maybe you can get another activist right-wing judge on the bench. That is unlikely to happen however.

    Re: Oregon Ruling Marks 13th Straight Gay Marriage Win

    Counting both federal and state court decisions, it’s the seventeenth consecutive judicial win for same-sex marriage advocates since the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Windsor last summer. Most of the federal court wins are on hold while appeals are pending.
    Judge McShane held that Oregon’s state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. In line with almost every court to review the issue

    Gay marriage in Oregon (no appeal)
    yep, equality is going to be national state by state or by a national decision much sooner than much later. Such a great thing that this injustice is being fixed.

    All it takes is a quick google search to validate them. Don't understand why you refuse to do that.



    False.

    People have been found in violation of State Public Accommodation laws for violating the law by denying the full and equal goods and services they normally provide based on the customers race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. They aren't "drug into court" for their beliefs, they are found in violation of the law for their actions.

    As stated before I encourage the repeal of Public Accommodation laws so that business owners can refuse service to customers based on any reason they choose which includes race, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and national origin. Such a repeal means that such decision need not be based on "religion", the return rights of property and association back to the owner.

    Do you agree with that or does your continued reference to the 1st Amendment mean that you think business should only be able to discriminate if they hide behind a religious claim? (One must assume that since you reference "beliefs/moral conscience" you are refering to the Free Exercise of Religion Clause.) If so does that claim only apply to the ghey's or can a religious claim be made to justify discrimination against anyone?
    I thought I made it perfectly clear that a business owner has the right to deny anyone a service that violates their moral conscience religious or not. I certainly don't think a soul food restaurant owned by blacks should be forced to cater to a KKK gathering but that is where we are headed if the insanity is allowed to continue making new perverted case law along the way. Like I stated earlier, if states just got out of the business of marriage licenses and went to civil unions for legal purposes then marriage defined in the traditional sense would remain in tact for those who see it sacred between a man and a woman . There would be no need to redefine marriage for all to conform to and all other unions could be viewed however each individual sees it.

    Same sex couples share the same rights to contract as heterosexual couples and we just need to realize this and move on. Things are getting f'd up out there though, and all the gay marriage in the world ain't gonna fix it.
    I agree that everyone has the right to form contracts, but who says the government has to confer legal recognition on every contract and enforce it? From my perspective, the extension of government recognition to contracts and their enforcement by the courts is a courtesy for the people rather than a right of the people.

    For those of you who are interested, here is the public accommodation law or more precisely; 42 U.S. Code § 2000a -"Prohibition against discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation "

If a person of faith believes the union of homosexuals to be a sin, has a right to deny any service that is part of that union.
    And if a business owner doesn't like Christians? What then?

    But before you answer, remember that christianity is being seen with less and less favor as time goes on. Be careful what you wish for.

    We already know what they are going to say about it. SCOTUS has made several rulings regarding marriage. In every single one of them it is regarded as a fundemental right. And since, going by our Constitution all laws must be applied equally across the board and that "seperate but equal" is not valid per our Constitution SCOTUS will, if it even ever gets to them, rule the same as every single one of those "activist" judges.
