"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
So your position is, that a person must give up their religious freedom, their beliefs, and their moral conscience to open a bakery?
Certainly it is. Forcing a Muslim, Christian or Jewish bakery owner to provide goods or services for a ceremony that violates their religious beliefs, is asking them to give up their right to believe in the tenets of their religion.And it is not.
Refusal to take part in the wedding ceremony, in no way abridges their right to get married. Forcing people to abandon their religious beliefs for someones party, is the height of intolerance.How is that relevant to anything. Back in the days of Christ there were no wedding planers or caterers everyone organized their own wedding.
The one that exist to day exist because their respective owners decided that that is the type of business they want to open and open it to the public.
Who are they discriminating against? The answer is "nobody".Sure it has an effect, discrimination. No one would ask them to plan, cater, etc. a gay wedding if their business was named 'Eternal Bonds Fundamental Christian Weddings' but by choosing to cater to the public they do take on the obligation to serve the public.
Who is in attendance is absolutely irrelevant... It's the event they object to.
It is?No the exact opposite is clear, that not only some so called Christians are bigots, but hypocrites too.
Picking and choosing which sinner to accommodate is anything but what Christianity is about.
Then please tell me when any of these businesses that have been discussed in the last week, have said they will not serve gay people? Every single one of them have made it clear that they will not refuse service to gay people and have not done so.
You are a bigot. You have just displayed your intolerance for the beliefs of others.And anyone who holds such depply bigoted and hypocritical views has the legal means to not get involved. The price is not having a business that is open to the public.
But it doesn't work both ways... That is the stance of a bigot.And that is a good thing. Equal rights are the bedrock of liberty and our nation.
Because religious people are the scum of the earth in your eyes, that do not have rights and do not deserve to be treated equally.Because it does not.
Your position is one of intolerance and pure bigotry.
The inability for a person to answer questions that address their morals and beliefs, is the unfortunate reality those who embrace progressivism must live with. They know that answering such questions can very easily destroy the credibility of their beliefs and completely invalidate them. But you already understand this perfectly, as you make it a practice to avoid such questions at all costs.
Just a thought, but you might want to give some consideration to embracing beliefs that actually do stand up to scrutiny, because you have no idea just how good it feels to answer any question, any time, without any fear of being exposed or having to run away.
