    So then my original point stands, he IS what Indiana wants.

    If they wanted something to facilitate sin, I believe He would indeed turn them away. If they came in repentance, He would accept them

    It's no different in my view than the ACLU defending the right of those idiots to march.
    Again, they offered to serve them, just without the swastikas. I see nothing in the aforementioned principle that suggests this would be inappropriate.

    And yet no legislator has said anything except that this RFRA (like all other RFRA's) does not enable discrimination. The attackers have been successful by lying.

    you dont have to like, or understand religion...
    Actually I do, on both counts, that is why I can't suffer bigots.
    Just so I am clear, I consider a bigot one who does something or encourages something against people or groups of people they do not "like" or consider "different" etc.

    but how about some tolerance from your side?
    Sure, I have no problem with them praying anytime or anywhere they wish.

    you all want that from everyone else...
    I do not want anything from anyone other then them not to discriminate. It is the price to belong in civilized secular society. There are plenty of **** holes in the world where theocratic regimes rule and I ma sure they accept like minded zealots.

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

    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
    BS that is a pathetic excuse. Any business can change formats any time.

    Do you honestly believe that Jesus would condone the bigoted actions of the florist or the baker? If you honestly believe so, then you do not know the man.
