    That's a good point. There's discrimination in every facet of our day to day lives. Why do Gays think they are immune?

    FYI, mom and pops are family owned small businesses and can have any number of employees. I believe the young lady who was interviesed was a daughter, although not all mom and pops consist strictly of family members. While you're at it, ask yourself, people with what ideology would contact a small business and threaten to kill them because they didn't want to send pizza to a gay wedding. Hint, probably not right wingers who for the most part don't care who eats pizza.

    Considering all the hubbub about Indiana's law...My bet is that the media was purposely out looking for a business that would admit to this.

    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.

    Or perhaps, as a starting point, a rational person would define tolerance as acceptance of such, but so much as to only extend to actions that do not materially harm the rights of others. (eg murder , pedophilia materially harm and deny the rights of others)

    I'd show up anyway, it's not about the pizza.
    Let me clarify: Id show up to the wedding but not for the reception. Having pizza for a wedding reception sounds really cheap and tacky.

    You really don't think a gay kid in that town fears for his life every day? Some twitter threat from over 100 miles away scared these discriminators ****less. Once again, i have no sympathy for bigots

    I wouldn't even notice.


    I was at a wedding once, where the reception was in the basement of a church in lousiana I think, they had meatballs in bbq sauce in a crock pot, and paper plates... Dude was a bronze star recipient and had a purple heart. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.

    I don't know. They say there's no such thing as bad publicity. And this is a small town, a small town local crew shows up? It's not like 60 minutes was knocking on their door.

    But yeah I hear what you're saying. The pizzeria may have, or someone they know might have tipped the news off then the owners would be more open to the publicity then if a news crew just shows up at their business and starts asking uncomfortable questions.

    Except of course that there is evidence that I fully support SSM. My posting history. Or if you don't want to look through that PM Hicup. Me and him have had lots of discussions on SSM.

    Also a poll does not indicate whether someone that espouses one thing is also for or against something else. It just shows what that person is for/against in that particular poll subject.
