    This isn't rocket science here, just common sense stuff.
    The Civil Rights Act of 1964 .. Title II says if you have private business you can't choose your customers. The very idea that the Christian owners is being discriminated against is complete utter bull****. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nobody says they need to give up one iota of their faith, but if they are doing business they must serve all their customers.

    No, it means that next time you are in need of emergency care some asshole can and will say that you do not meet his moronic criteria and you can die.

    As they say some of the best learned lessons are the hard lessons. They again some are just condemned for eternal stupidity, I guess that too is Deus Vult.

    Or might your hate of Christians gotten the best of your rational faculties?
    Who said anything about hating Christians? I do dislike bigots especially those who would use religion as an excuse. Just so you know, for me bigots are people who act on their irrational dislikes. Ever wonder why the Pope does not condone such bigotry? He must hate Christians too eh?

    Good one. He's still a repulsive excuse for a human being, a serial womanizer, a demagogue of the worst sort, and a fat tub of lard.
    Why am I wasting my time responding to this? I've heard less name calling from a third grader at recess.

    You can't just look at what the man does(sit in a room, alone, for 3 hours, no guests, just his opinions) and the unbelievable success he has had. You can't even give props to him for that?
    I think michael moore is the biggest load on two feet, but notice I don't name call him or say he has no talent. OBVIOUSLY he has SOME talent. My own opinions don't blind me from that. but you......you have some real problems with seeing past your own politics. If they don't agree with YOU then they MUST be morons, right? I can't think of anything more narrow minded than that. but whatever helps you sleep at night

    You really believe that somehow being a moron and successful are mutually exclusive or that being a moron is monopolized by a particular political position? There are morons on every side and many more who support them, be that financially, with lip service or sexual favors, etc. Pointing out that someone does belong in that category when the indicators are as blatantly obvious as in the case of Rush is just being factual.

    yeah but there is difference in saying "I don't agree with your politics" and saying hateful crap like that about someone. At some point it becomes counterproductive to vilify your opponents to the extent that most liberals do. There are still people who think GW should be in jail for war crimes for christs sake. You call that reasonable? I don't. Its just someone trying to rationalize their own views by making demons of everyone NOT on their side. simple as that

    Either you are not paying attention, or you having difficulty with vocabulary. You did not say they made the mistake of being honest because they were ignorant, but because they were unintelligent. Ability (intelligence) provides the learning skills and knowledge. You can't spout an ad hom insult about their innate inability to know that being honest is unwise, and then sneer they should have known better and/or that they could learn from this.

    Either they were intelligent but did not have the skills or knowledge to know that honesty is the worst policy, or they were unintelligent and cannot be blamed for their ignorance.

    And no, the Pope is not anti-christian but should he go over the cliff and issue your kind of comments, I shall reconsider.

The American people forced a change in the law and freedom, honor and dignity won out. Any time one of these attempts raises its head again....America will stand up again.
    It's astonishing anyone could possibly think a miniscule number of people were involved in the threats of violence and other actions that were thrown at the owners of the pizzeria. Perhaps there will come a day when respect for all beliefs will be the order of the day. We are clearly not at that point in time.

    So maybe if I ever have a desire for a penis cake I'll search out a gay baker and leave the other ones alone? Anyway, the relevance is if baking a cake were just about making food there would be no reason for the baker to deny the request.
