Which is why I tried my best for 33 years of full-time teaching and now 6 years of continued coaching and tutoring to instill MODERATION.
This has always been the most dangerous time of the year for the teens and 20-somethings--with spring-breaks, proms, and then graduation parties.
As for gateway drugs, I'll use my example to the kids, "The Needle and the Damage Done", by Neil Young.
When we did have "talk time" after a tough lesson, I'd let them replace 'needle' with their own word as far as a 'gateway' is concerned.
The only conclusion I could ever make is that every person has their own 'gateway' .

by definition it is in fact pure bigotry
its the same type of bigotry as i serve blacks but only if they come to the back door and eat, they cant come through the front because they are lessers and not as good as white
or the same bigotry as I hire women but Ill never make them a boss because they are lessers and not as good as men
i serve gays but i dont give them wedding cakes because they are lessers and not worthy of marriage
by definition its bigotry
feelings, opinions, conscience and religion etc doesnt change the definition of bigotry
But this originally noble legislation is being manipulated 20 years later for totally different effects.
Crimea is illegally occupied by Russia
Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
i would never use my own version because that would be mentally retarded, i use the facts and actual defintion thats why your claim failed
Bigot - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
treating them different and not making them a cake based on thier own prejudice and opinions of gay people (a group) who they feel through thier intolerance are not equal to them, not good enough for marriage and lessers so thier rights (or the law) dont matter
like i said by definition they are bigots and its bigotry
also notice that the definition of bigotry doesnt mention exemptions. Religion, conscience and feelings dont change the fact its bigotry
im a chrisitian myself and if i denied service to gays or a service based on it being a gay that i give to others that would in fact make me a bigot
facts win again
As the Supreme Court interpreted the federal RFRA in Hobby Lobby, it includes both the other provisions of the Indiana RFRA Baier referred to: it is available to private persons as a defense in a suit; and those private persons may include for-profit corporations--like Hobby Lobby. It may be that other state RFRA's do not include these provisions simply because they were passed before the Hobby Lobby decision. Some of those states may choose to amend their RFRA's to reflect that decision.
By the way, the Hobby Lobby decision turned on the same "least burdensome means" requirement that state RFRA's, including Indiana's, incorporate. HHS already had another rule which relieved for-profit religious corporations of the duty to cover contraceptives in their employee health care plans. The Court held that HHS had not shown why that rule, which burdened the right to free exercise of religion of Hobby Lobby's owners less than the rule they were objecting to, could not be extended to other for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby.
The attacks on this law make even more clear just how hostile to First Amendment freedoms pseudo-liberals are. There is nothing truly liberal about these people, millions of whom are now taking up space in this country. They don't like the First Amendment any better than the Second. In fact they have contempt for the Constitution generally, just like their president, whose rear they are always trying to guard.
