    I know lots of lifelong Republicans. I know lots of Republicans active in politics, including Republican politicians. I don't know anyone who hates gays. I've voted for the Republican candidate in every single POTUS election since 1980. I don't hate gays. My husband is a Republican, and he doesn't hate gays.

    Being gay isn't a business practice. Being gay has to do with love and sex. I'm on topic.

I only care that he's clean, his ingredients are fresh, and he washed his hands before he made my cake. I don't think John & Jim should care about what the baker thinks of them. I don't think the baker should think of them and what they do in their private time. This isn't the ****ing middle ages where adults made decisions on who married who.

    How the hell this has become such a rabidly angry issue on both sides is beyond me. I don't care who loves who any more than I cared about who approved of my choice of husband or didn't approve, as the case may be.
    great, and I agree.

    but it really comes down to speech. people boycott a place as a form of speech. why can't that speech cut both ways?

    Ah, but when only a minority portion of the majority take it upon themselves to discriminate against a minority, the what? Especially when most of that majority does not engage in such discrimination?

    Yes but we aren't talking about being gay. We're talking about businesses rejecting gay customers. You are off topic.

    Then report me. And yes, we are talking about being gay. Gay customers are gay. Now, again, please report me to the moderators if this upsets you.

    Every time this comes up though it's the Republicans. It's the Republican politicians in the red states.

    yes im very sure thats what you invented in your head from talking to them, there's no doubt. I love that part too, where "A" is stated and in your mind you heard B, C and Z.
