    should they have to make it?
    There should NOT be a law to have it as an option for Me to serve them or not. It's wrong to arbitrarily remove potential customers that you don't like the looks of for whatever personal prejudices that you have. What if I go to Burger King and demand a Big-Mac? Your analogy isn't relevant. You don't go into places of businesses asking for products that they don't provide and that has nothing to do with if it's right or not to kick out people that you don't like the looks of.

    Religious freedom. Homosexuals hate it. But they'll just have to get used to it because it's a constitutional right. Indiana is within their rights to pass this law and homosexual are within their rights to throw a hissy fit, stomp their feet, call for political action, boycotts and anything short of physical aggression like eye scratching and hair pulling. Eventually, they'll wear themselves out and get over it. I'm surprised anyone considers this news.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

We can come up with all the comparisons in the world. Fun!
    the state shouldn't scansion any of those, either. we once had an America in which restaurant owners could kick out people of different races for not being white. that sucked. we fixed it, and it was hard. now these assholes want to do something like that again. no. no, you cannot kick a gay person out of your restaurant for being gay. we don't do that here anymore. that isn't America.

    so happy for your non biased fair view of this

    you dont have to like, or understand religion....

    but how about some tolerance from your side?

    you all want that from everyone else.....

    how about just a little back......and seeing this from the eyes of those who dont believe what you believe

    and when businesses have been open for decades, and passed from one generation to another.....it isnt always feasible to set it up as a something else

    Re: Indiana's Pence to sign bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers

    I pose this scenario again

    " a Jewish or Christian man walks into a Muslim restaurant and says " I want bacon now, and I want you to make me a bacon cake with two men kissing on it for my wedding"...

    should the Muslim owner have to make them " a bacon cake with men kissing on it"..????.

    this is quite a question to a liberal...

    to me the answer is NO.. the Muslim owner should be free to say " Im sorry, its against my religion, there is a nice butcher down the street that Im sure will make it for you.. have a nice day"


    thats the spirit of the law..

    The questionaire told them that he's gay, He was suggested to go somewhere else. Did they say "we don't serve homo's here"? No, He was discreetly informed that they would not be seeing him. I asked him if the place was packed or overbooked. He told me that there were a handful of people in the place and that it wasn't. What's happening here is business owners are testing the waters with this crap.

    That story in your signature line. Did that news make it to the Netherlands?
    No, I am a big fan of sarcastic new-shows like the Daily show, the Colbert Report (sadly gone), Bill Maher's Real Time and Last week tonight with John Oliver, and that is where I read about that story and looked into it in the real news media and thought it was a disgraceful way to misuse a discussion about state raptors in such a manner.
    Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.

    I already explained several times that the entire post misrepresented what he quoted. I understand that you do not what to address that as it throws you off your agenda, but that doesn't alter it's accuracy.

    I do not believe your story as Drs are cut from a cloth of caring and compassion.. I simply dont think you are telling the whole story but a narrative
    So it is YOUR opinion that NO medical professional would EVER do something like this?
