    LOL.....yeah....riiiiiiiiiiight. You guys are always the same....whine and cry about "links" and when presented with the truth...run spin and deny. Nothing new. I knew it before I even bothered. The evidence is there right from the mouths of the Mormons themselves...but of course....you'll spin and deny that as well. Too funny.

    I grew up on the Indiana border and I'm well aware how damn right wing and impoverished the rural areas are. Even the mayor of Indianapolis said he wants to make sure this new law doesn't reflect on his city, as it's the rural bigotry masked as "religious freedom" that is behind it

    Funny how they do not care about the *freedom* of LGBT, not at all
    The average American is just now becoming familiar with the label "LGBT." People hear more regarding same-sex relationships. I'm sure they don't mean to ignore these different groups, like Transgender etc. What disturbs me more than anything is the hypocrisy of the religious right; religions is supposed to teach us to love one another despite our gender preferences. Yet the Evangelicals are against same-sex love affairs and are passing laws that private restaurants may refuse to serve Gay people.

    I have a right to use my property as a for profit business. You can't say I must agree to serve people if I wish to use my property as a for profit business without violating my rights.

    YOU may not want regulations...but we as the public demand it.
    The public needs to learn to respect each others rights.

    Again....you couldn't be more wrong. You might personally believe that...but the law says otherwise. Sorry Charlie.

    You can either adhere to the process or rebuke the process... you have choice. You can leave the plantation any time you choose.

    The Mormons may have broken laws, and I was/am on the other side, but it was unimportant.

    Then I must serve people if I was to practice my right to use my property as a for profit business. You seem to be making the argument that I shouldn't practice my rights if I don't want to be aggressed upon. Are you sure that is the argument you want to go with?

    Hardly. They are forced to provide their labor, service, property and association to another human being. I''m entirely right in calling that involuntary servitude.
