That's why I asked about identifying marks or badges for the "queers and faggots" (not your words, but commonly used in some groups)
    I'm sorry...are we talking about other countries? Or just the US?

    And such words would not be uttered around me without some comment showing disapproval from me. Those are slurs and not to be had around my kids.

    Also the "one" is generic. For all I know hundreds or even thousands could be the number.

    Could be worse though. Plenty families still totally reject them upon finding out.

    It's just amazing how for instance michael sam's parent can accept his incarcerated/dead siblings but publicly attacks michael's sexuality. It somehow has become a graver sin than murder

    When I was a single white male aged 21. I attempted to get some help with health insurance via our local welfare office. I was declined. And the person that declined me told me WHY I was declined and that she thought it was bogus also. I was declined BECAUSE I was a single white male aged 21. She told me straight up that if I had been female or a black male/female then I would have received assistance.
    Statistically, though (and depending on the region you live in, of course), if you're a white hetero Christian you've probably never encountered discrimination from a minority. Okay fine, yes, a lot of us might have encountered that one taco vendor who had a bug up his ass one day and refused to sell us a taco, but it's not an endemic problem for the majority.

    What is the "Christian world"?

    In my church, Canadian Baptist, we are divided on this issue, although we have a lesbian minister. Others are fundamentalists who show up a pride events and make asses of themselves. Still others are in the closet. As a member I volunteer as a writer for one of two major pride parades....where does that fit

    What is the "Christian World"?

    In your case I suspect it is a pre-established mind set.

    I am willing to bet serious coin that the majority of the bullies responsible for this haven't been inside a church in years if ever, and have never even considered what Jesus would do. This stopped being about gay marriage a long time ago when someone covered it in pig skin and started throwing Hail Mary passes. This is all about jack boot politics

    Actually, what the Qur'an doesn't forbid is the use of science. It's seen as something that comes from god to them. As such, Islam ironically embraces sex changes.

    Seriously. The 7th century book doesn't forbid sex changes, which didn't exist back then. It's like giving credit to the culprit

    It is still monstrous to force homosexuals into sex changes on threat of death
    Yes, I've read the reports from the "New Civil Rights Movement" too. However, it's based on nothing but allegations of there being a report. The actual issue however is far more complex than your one liners and silly allegations.

    Asking that your business not discriminate while taking advantage of every perk offered to it by a society is not bigotry. You're welcome to do as you wish in your home.

    Memories Pizza may have closed temporarily but supporter's donations to them now total over $132K through the 'gofundme.com Memories Pizza' website.

    You just gotta love it.

    We also know that at the end, there's the final Judgment, and the pro-gay crowd won't have to like it.

    If I read the news right, I don't think they said they closed because of funds. It was because of death threats.
