    Except that either they can, with laws such as those that prevent people from refusing to hire or promote women, or those aren't really keeping you from believing whatever you wish, only preventing you from using your religion to harm others.

    The topic is about the pizza parlor in Indiana closing. They never said anything about anything but gay marriage.
    And religion should not be a valid excuse to deny service to gays anymore than it is to deny service to others.

    Pretty sure it was already changed. The federal one has never been used to excuse violations of anti discrimination laws.

    Well, then I guess there isn't a problem then?

    All the major tribes are taking a stand against it.

    So...shall we be expecting the pickets and expression of outrage and hatred this week or will it take a little time to organize?

    Right, because those people have no faith, religion or convictions. Almost like a Beatles song. Do the rights of those in those service not matter?

    nobody is trying to refuse gays, just gay marriage. and if my memory is correct WE WERE ALL PROMISED gay marriage would in no way effect our lives(us meaning homophobic morons). well that isn't the case here. these people have been run out of town. so much for promises.

    "No one is trying to refuse those attracted to people of a different race or those of a certain race, only interracial marriages."

    From what? I don't think there was any legitimate threat to them or their business. And same sex marriage didn't cause this issue, at all. Stupid, irrational reactions on both sides did. It in all honesty didn't even have to do with legal same sex marriage, which is obvious from at least some of the other cases we've seen dealing with this, including the case in Colorado and in New Mexico, where same sex marriages weren't legally recognized in those states at that time.
