    Haha..this coming from the guy that didn't start to talk until I insulted the intelligence of liberals. You enjoying that little emotional trap I set for you? Good.

    I love when right-wingers always try to play the "liberals are stupid" card. Statistics show a clear correlation between the amount of education and the degree of political bent. The higher a person is educated, the more liberal they generally are. Most right-wingers always try to blame the results on "liberal colleges"...but the reality remains. By and large the greater the education the greater the liberal bent. Sorry.

    How is it dishonest to say that Pence couldn't answer a yes/no question Jack--6 of them by the way?
    How is it dishonest to say that Pence and the legislature are "fixing" the language Jack?
    How is it dishonest to say that there are corporate boycotts Jack?
    Looks like it's back to the BIL Zone for ya.

    Not really. Not when you invite them to the signing and position them within arms reach in a position of respect.

    And you're being disingenuous here. Pence is a social conservative, rates 100% or 0% on the various rankings related to LGBT, and that "irresponsible fringe" and who they speak to is a core part of his base.

    FWIW, I won't quote from it but this is a very well documented summary of what we've been talking about. Bottom line is the religious freedom bill was sold exactly as the "vicious" attacks say it was, as a way to discriminate against LGBT at least when it comes to SSM. There's even a Facebook post by the Indiana Coalition to Protect Religious Freedom that asserts the bill can be used to nullify local ordinances protecting gays. So when Pence says, "I just don't know where people got the idea this was about teh gays???!!!" he's lying. All he had to do was listen to his supporters and those pushing the bill who sold religious freedom acts as a way to do just that.

    The one way to be sure to get to a liberal is to insult their intelligence. Funny how that works.

    One shouldn't confuse intelligence with Godly wisdom. The latter reigns supreme!

    Could you provide an example of where courts have inappropriately applied public accommodation laws to "non-public accommodation" businesses, businesses of course being a for-profit legal entity.


    I'm sure you aren't talking about Sweetcakes by Melissa (Oregon) which is a public accommodation business, Masterpiece Cakes (Colorado) which is a public accommodation business, and Elane Photography (New Mexico) which is a public accommodation business.
