    Librealism is not a religion.
    It seems Russian prostitutes are not the only leaking Donald Trump has witnessed. Sad!

    It's not uncommon these days to see homosexuals publicly displaying affection, such as holding hands.

    Ok then. If that is the "fix" he signs, we're good to go and all arguments to the contrary, that the law was intended to permit the denial of service to anyone under the color of religious freedom, were in error.
    It wasn't, that's completely dishonest of you. It was intended, to mirror the National RFRA that was barred from being applied to state courts. The only ones that screamed discrimination were those with a political agenda. This is to clarify that those people are idiots.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

They don't have a sign on their door or anything that says "Christians Only" but it's pretty obvious what their business model is. Now a gay couple decides to get married. They have been very active in the "gay rights" movement and want to make a statement so they intentionally choose this particular baker to provide a cake for their wedding because they are sure that there will be resistance. Sure enough, the Christian baker turns the job down based on their religious convictions.

    Now here's the question, in this scenario who is discriminating against whom?
    Why do you automatically assume the gay couple wouldn't want a Christian themed cake?

    Which means you are incorrect that it allows people to discriminate for any reason. You need to keep your story straight.

    Pence has asked for clarification to appease those with pitchforks that don't understand basic reading comprehension.

    I know what the normal usage was. I was using it as a descriptive phrase and not as a fixed term.

    I am also sure you dislike that the phrase fits so well in connotation as well as with the component words.

    So weird <-- your posts.

    It doesn't upset me, I am simply explaining to you a term you misused.

    Consider yourself educated on it now.

    You're welcome.
