    Discrimination is FINE...when it is what YOU want.
    The CBC is a political org, not a commercial one so it doesn't fall under the Commerce Clause. The only people who can make them accept white members is the majority in Congress, who set the rules for the Congress

    So go blame the majority in Congress. Hmm, I wonder who has the majority in Congress

    Yeah, you are definitely not an expert. So why say something so lacking in knowledge?

    Oh wait...I think I know. You're perfectly fine with discrimination against those that you disagree with and forcing them to go against their beliefs in order to assert your own discriminatory beliefs.
    So you seriously believe that a small town pizzeria lost so much by not catering the gay weddings that within a week they're out of business? Yeah, ok....you'll believe anything apparently.

    The words 'pizza' and 'catering' are mutually exclusive.

    It was a pathetic attempt by moronic pizza shop owners to pander to Christians to increase their business, which blew up in their face.

    I'll bet that they even set up their own GoFundMe page, or had a friend do it.

    Lying, hypocritical morons.
    NO, this is completely wrong. These people didn't seek out any publicity or seek to make their religious views generally known. They just answered some questions a reporter who came into their restaurant asked. There was no discrimination. Nothing happened, nothing was about to happen. But the evil scum at ABC, Puffington Host, et al., proceeded to blow the whole thing out of proportion. It is yellow journalism at it's very worst.

    I have no problem with gays, but I absolutely despise gay activists. I despise the social justice warriors who style themselves journalists. They are mean, evil, and intolerant. They are begging for a big backlash from decent people.

    So the Go Fund Me campaign was just a really fortuitous coincedence?

    just to clarify.. there was no "hateful act"...there was no "act" at all.
    she simply answered a question saying she would discriminate.. she didn't actually discriminate against anyone.

    ...and that's when they started being terrorized on the phone and internet. .... which, ironically, is a "hateful act"....but it's a hateful act that is not only tolerated, but supported by folks whom pretend to be opposed to "hateful acts"

    it's a mad mad mad mad world...sometimes

    Are you saying that they don't need or deserve a legal defense?

They'd send b'day or Christmas presents from him back, unopened. Would hang up if he called. Etc. Pretty sad.

    Sometimes I hope that many of those who seem unconcerned about discrimination against gays just don't have a clue what kind of actual discrimination still takes place in this country. It's far better than it used to be, but the kind of hostility that motivates an entire family to disown their son/brother/sister still exists, and so suggestions that we "tolerate" or especially respect these kinds of opinions is pretty absurd from where I sit.

    You want to argue that they should be allowed to discriminate and refuse service? Fine. I disagree and the laws are quickly coming around to a view to make it illegal. But don't tell they're just faithful to their religion. BS. It's a kind of hate reserved for homosexuals (and maybe child rapists) that has nothing to do with religion.
    Yeah very well put. The way i see it, the only diff between this pizza shop and what you just described is (maybe) the *level* of hatred. It is still senseless, unprovoked, and worthless hate just the same however

    Even the argument that there's "sinners' movement" among lgbt is a bull**** excuse. Every group of 'sinner' - adulterers, murderers, you name it - will attempt to excuse their behavior and get away with it

    The contempt for lgbt, in my experience, always boils down to personal animus

    Now let's say it was true that it was BECAUSE you are a white male, don't you find that wrong?
    Since it was the government doing it, yes. If it was some private individual/company, might be wrong but I would move to the next business and forget about it.
