    Or are you suggesting that two wrongs make a right?

    Let's move to a strike out. I am not in the habit of "proving" something that I never claimed, especially about my personal life. (But if you are curious about the meaning of childish gay bullying, you might reflect on your ad hom tactics).

    So let's be clear: You are conceding that you have never once been persecuted because you are straight? I just want to make sure I am hearing you correctly.

    You asked me "who has been the bully here". I told you the Police of 1969 and the gay and fellow travelers of 2015. Each party was wrong, ergo, are you saying that two wrongs makes a right? Are you saying that because gays were once bullied they should now do the same?

    There is nothing to concede, as it is a claim I did not make. In spite of your inability to ask an unloaded question, I will state that: no, I have never allowed myself to be in a position to persecuted. Like any potential PC victim, I never state my actual views on certain issues around gays (most of whom are intolerant). The few that I know really well are incapable of discussing these issues without becoming drama queens.

    As opposed to some who know that it takes all of five minutes for a critic of libertarians and the market to pull out an old chestnut - failing to understand that the right to do something does not mean it is the right thing to do.

    Need I explain it to you, or were you just doing a drive-by snarl?

People like you are what make DP such a great place to post!
    That's always a good move

    I'm saying the Bakers are trying to assume the same old bully pulpit by denying service in a place of public accommodation.

    It's hard to be a bully when you don't act

    lmao at the idea of a grocery store clerk being "bullied" into selling milk to gay customers, as they do for everyone else the other 8 hours of their shift everyday, or a doctor having to treat a gay couple's newborn. Yes what a sacrifice that is and you compare it to the gestapo barging into bedrooms and brutally attacking everyone at a bar

    You know how many people i have had to work with who i did not like one bit? You know how many belligerent and otherwise worthless customers i have had to tolerate? But if i didn't sell to a customer i have a moral objection to, i'd get fired. If i didn't sell to a black or christian customer, i'd get fired. But somehow you are advocating a right to discriminate against lgbt

    no, it is those who attempt to deny those basic services and enshrine oppression in law, all while sucking on our taxes, who are the bullies - the same bullies btw who want to make our relationships illegal and who in 1969 would've been cheering on the cops at stonewall
