    I am hearing this question pop up. But I cannot yet tell whether it is a defensive question or an honest question. Perhaps it could be either, or both, depending on who is asking it.

    Stop. Your cisgender privilege allows you to make these ignorant comments.

    Why doesn't the Christian church deny fellowship with those Christians that engage in despicable and sinful behaviors and engaging in heterosexual intercourse.

    To what end do you believe such laws serve the public at large when there is civil rights language in most states and federal law, which is to the contrary to zealot religious legislation? Think the S.C. will just look the other way?

    Are tattoos on gays similar to those put on Jews who were encamped during WWII the next logical move for states like Indiana?

    Or how about microchip implants for all gays. That way chip detection alarms can be installed in door ways of business who choose to impose their bigoted views on potential consumers who are gay...or may those who have green eyes, a different religion, skin color...etc. than that of the business owners.

    so, are you ok with kicking black people out of restaurants simply for being black if the owner decides on that policy?

    The Church routinely goes to the incarcerated and prays with child rapists and murderers.

    And for the love of God...please don't use the rationale that they have stopped sinning. The only people that have stopped sinning are dead people.
