    Yes, the laughs keep coming. The subject, basically, is the right to freely associate...or not...as one chooses.

    So if people do not want to associate with 'certain groups' then the govt should indeed demand signage. You did ignore the total practicality of my post in which it would require business owners to 'associate' with those they dont want to associate with in order to tell them they didnt want to associate with them (if no signage was present). Yes, it does sound stupid and yet that is how I consider such bigoted perspectives. It's laughable.

    But the signage would also protect those that were being rejected....so that they did not have to associate with such bigots in order to be asked to leave. Not only that, they probably wouldnt want to associate (bring them their business) with them anyway.


    I'm sure you'll have difficulty understanding this but that's ok. I enjoyed writing it out to emphasize the point and everyone else can read it as well.

    LOL, once again trying to insult when you have no answer.

    This is definitely your M.O.

    Please discuss the topic, if you can.

    "In my day" (I typed it as if in a southern accent, as it was spoken) is a common expression referring to the past.

    And of course gays can act normally in public these days, at least in most civilized places.

    C: Then why wouldn't Gov. Pence just say that on Sunday? Yes or no question. (2:48 for the first of multiple instances to NOT answer the question) (3:49, 4:56, 9:58, 10:47 I may have missed one)
    Will he push to add sexual orientation as a protected class in Indiana? No. (6:35)

    This video would appear to refute your claim of manufactured BS, which conservatives are a part of. Supporters (Eric Miller of Advance America) standing with Gov. Pence as he signed the bill stated that Christian bakers, photographers and shouldn't be punished for refusing service to gay couples. (1:34) Seems they are are a part of the bruhaha.

    The difficulty is not with understanding, it's the predilection for the government involvement. And the signage, signage, signage.

    well, there's still union construction here, and you can make a decent wage doing that.

    I think Kathleen Parker is wise on this question.

    Everyone needs to recognize that evolution of social/cultural attitudes toward LGBT has been extraordinarily rapid, maybe unprecedentedly so. It would therefore be wise for all parties to give each other some slack. Let's all exercise some actual tolerance instead of looking for opportunities to be outraged.
