    I did read the addiction part but you know, you're kind of insulting them at the same time, by saying they're so weak willed, weak minded, that without the faerie sky god to pray for to help, they can't overcome their problems or do charitable acts

    I believe also i saw a study not long ago revealing that atheists do more charity work, per capita, than theists

    Sounds to me like a lot of deception in order to get the gay rights mob rolling again, get Hillary, Iran, and a host of other crap out of the limelight for a few days.

    Yeah that will never happen in a indiana town of 2000 lol

    I bet there's not a single openly gay couple and these pizza freaks just felt like attacking gay marriage. Now they're claiming victimhood after 1 twitter threat from far away. You want to find a victim in that town, i pity the gay teens trapped there, not the loudmouth bigots

    Actually, some of the stories date back pretty far. Don't know if it goes as far back as the Bronze Age though

    Does that answer your question?
    Actually, it does. Thank you. One thing's for sure, your ideal society would be the most segregated society on the planet. Without government intervention to protect gays and minorities from wanton discrimination, such people would be forced out of backwater conservative towns, even if they were born there. There would literally be 'No-Go Zones' sprinkled across the country for many people.

    I would ask why you overwhelmingly favor the rights of businesses over the rights of people, but I frankly don't care.

    christian persecution complex depends on making oneself the victim. Easiest way to do that is claim to "love the sinner, hate the sin," or claim to serve the non existent gay couples and just stop short at supporting the wedding. Reality is they hate sinner, or would not have opened their fat mouths to begin with. There's literally no purpose to what they did, other than to be pricks
    They didn't didn't go out of their way to do anything. The news station went out trolling to catch someone just like the pizza shop owners. That's the norm these days, trolling to find businesses that can be shut down for not caving into the homosexual agenda

    IIRC, the whole issue began because the owner tweeted a message that he would not cater a SSM

    People deal with addiction in different ways. Some overwork themselves and become obsessive about a particular hobby. Others read their religious books or play music. That doesn't make them 'weak willed' or 'weak minded' as you falsely claimed that I said. I know this better than anyone in this forum except for maybe danarhea. Now, if you're going to be as dishonest as to put words that I never said in my post, at least get it right.

    I believe also i saw a study not long ago revealing that atheists do more charity work, per capita, than theists
    That's great, it doesn't change the fact that religion provides a group dynamic where people engage in charitable work.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    that is why I laugh at people that claim to be tolerant yet spout such hate and vile at people that do not believe the way that they do.

    because they are not the tolerant people that they claim to be.
    FWIW, it's not what people 'believe' that is a problem - it's what they do. If the owners had said they're personally against SSM but would, of course, cater to anyone who is civil, pays the bills, etc. then I can't imagine they have a problem. I doubt if the owners "approve" of atheists, agnostics, or those 'in name only' Christians, but I bet they serve them without hesitation and would even cater a wedding for a heterosexual couple without inquiring about their state of salvation at that moment in time.
