    well name one thing of value religion contributes in the 21st century

    and i'm talking the bronze age book of fables known as the bible - what these small town yokels cling to - not pantheism, deism, jainism or hell, even nihilism might have more utility

    Ive never heard of pizza being served at wedding receptions and if someone ever invited me to a wedding in which I knew pizza would be served I probably would decline to go.

    Tolerance - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own

    the fact that you have been misusing the word in order to try and claim some moral high ground in a discussion is not my problem.
    the fact is if you are only tolerant of people that believe like you do then you are not tolerant at all.


    ummm, lie much? didn't you post this? there's nothing about the "something" being only 1 thing. it's absolutely implied
    from your comment below that all things must be tolerated to be "tolerant".

    Oh yeah. That's very possible. Maybe they mentioned weddings because heard about the florist issue in other states. But now that it's turned into a goldmine they're going to play it up with the we're closed, and we're afraid stuff. If someone is really afraid they lay low, they don't go on a national show and broadcast where they are and what they're doing. Hey we're afraid for our lives and BTW we're not working anymore so we're home all day. Come get us.

    Wrong. We have all sorts of regulations that are not meant to prevent harm to individuals but instead, to protect commerce. Take zoning regulations, for example.

    The power to regulate the market in order to promote commerce has been considered a sovereign and legitimate power of govt for centuries.

    Because it has the possibility of causing harm. Whether someone reacts or not is not relevant because there was no way to tell if someone is going to react or not before someone yells "fire". The odds and statistics however are that people WILL react and someone WILL get harmed.
    And discrimination has the possibility of causing harm....to commerce. And that harms the nation and all of us.

    The Federal government may only regulate interstate commerce. A business denying someone a service intrastate does not fall with in their purview and does not affect the entire nation as a whole.
    Discrimination affects interstate commerce. I'm a distributor. I sell and deliver my product to customers in at least four different states. If one of my trucks breaks down in Podunk, PA and the local repair shop won't fix it because they have some BS "religious" objection to the driver, it most certainly does harm my business. And if I decide not to service certain areas because such discrimination is too common there, then not only is my business harmed, but all of the businesses in that area that can no longer purchase my product are also harmed.

    This so-called "right" to discriminate is extremely disruptive to commerce. It should be banned.

    depends on who's making the pizza.



    I'd show up anyway, it's not about the pizza.

    not at all different dictionaries have different definitions as in added words but the meanings are the same.
    this came from google dictionary when I typed it in.

    tol∑er∑ance


    /ˈtšl(ə)rəns/


    noun

    noun: tolerance



    1.


    the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with


    you are just trying to split hairs. there is no difference in the meanings. poor argument to try and make.
    so there is no lie.

    fact is you just don't like the fact that you are not the tolerant person you think you are.

    I find it very hard to believe that Jesus Christ will hold a marginal Christian to a higher level than a marginal gay/lesbian who also did their best.

    There are very few Christians who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ to the letter.

    It sure doesn't keep some of those Christians from quickly passing judgement upon all other folks.
    The government has no place in any marriage, no matter the type.

    It is none of my business what anyone else is doing, even if I don't agree.

    I don't judge at all, period.

    Not my place.
