    Re: Indiana's 'No Gay Wedding' Pizzeria Has Closed

    That was from 2006, nine years ago. It doesn't seem to have caught on in any big way. Gays and those who support their rights could have protested the deal with Iran on those grounds but didn't. Instead they attack a hypothetical in a small town in Indiana.

    It seems politics, and discretion, comes first while human rights, including those of Gays, will be taken less seriously.

    No, I'm wondering why liberal/progressives don't have a problem with their religious discrimination, but do have a problem when they perceive members of another specific religious faith appear to.

    No, in fact they are being forced out of business and into hiding because of a hypothetical question. Isn't that what this is all about?

    Spare me your hyperbolic comments.

    Stick to spewing your garbage about what you think you know, not want you want to believe.

    Try Googling that instead.
    Your posts prove that you have no basis for your comment.. the Pizza place is closing because the Liberal Gays are calling the place 24/7 and they cant figure out whats a legit call in order ..they are being "harassed"...

    as always your posts are garbage to me

Some groups will be more likely forced to abide with these restrictive laws than others, and the law will be more rigorously enforced with some groups, or in some areas, more than others.

    I happen to have a Gay son and, though it doesn't matter in this case, am in favor of Gay marriage. But if there was a wedding and someone felt uncomfortable doing the catering I would find another caterer. I can understand why some people may feel uncomfortable and can respect their feelings while the dogmatic Leftists can't. There will be constant clashes between all these groups and there will never be a winner, or peace, if we remove common sense, discretion, and the rights of others from the equation.

    The Leftists seem to believe that this is a victory for a freer and more open society, as though only laws can ensure that, when in fact society will become more restrictive and the right to 'live and let live' will be less common.
    Well stated. I share your view and conclusions. Slippery slope, and unintended consequences are concepts that appear to be vacant from the current ideologically driven agenda of the Left.

    It was a hypothetical just as the case with Memories pizza was a hypothetical. In the Memories case the leftists went wild, in the second they remained silent. You really don't see the hypocrisy?

    So in other words they face the same exact freedoms and limitations the rest of us deal with. I thought you guys were against special rights?

    You are being forced to do something which goes against your personal beliefs? What is that?

    Don't bother with the 'in other words' business either. You are a 'liberal' remember.

    The name calling and attacks are just par for the massive hypocritical course by the left.

    Again, it's a shame the left can't seem to offer the same level of tolerance and respect they demand others show them. History has documented how far and dark that kind of thinking can go.
    It doesn't change the bottom line or your bogus claim. You tried to claim that a large number of gay people were threatening the pizza owner. That simply isn't true. It was a miniscule number and not widely supported by anyone. Sorry...but facts do mean something.

    While I don't condone threats of violence against anyone....it doesn't change the fact that the owners of the pizza have bigoted beliefs. Sorry...again....that is simply a fact.

    They are entitled to their bigoted beliefs however....what they don't, however, have the right to do....thankfully as a result of the change in the Indiana law...is use those bigoted beliefs to discriminate.
