    Remember, white supremacism isn't about racism either. It's about pride in one's race. And discriminating against gays isn't bigotry. It's religious freedom.

    The out-of-the-box thinking came from the staff at Glenn Beck's The Blaze. Must hurt some people to have to admit the admire that

    No one knows for sure if that's the way it happened. They could have easily and quietly 'tipped' off the media, or had someone they know tip off the media to get the ball rolling. But even if the didn't start it, once it got going with all this money rolling in they'd be nuts not to keep playing it.

    They're afraid for their lives but then they go on the blaze and tell the world hey we're home 24/7 now, basically saying we're here, at home, come and get us. LOL Sounds fishy. But hey, good for them. If people want to give them money for something like this? Amen.

    A business is considering an establishment. What is the first section of the 1st Amendment? And which amendment applied the BoR's to States also? Now combine that with their Right to freedom of association.

If for religious points of view, close shop and re-submit your business license as a non-profit 501(c)(3) religious organization...bka, a church.

    True. Most people start a business to fill a need and hopefully to make a profit. But unless yours is a religious affiliated entity, the "sins" of another or non-conformaty of the customer's religious beliefs to your own should never enter the buyer/seller equation. As such, this entire "religious freedom" thing from the business owners' perspective is BS! It's bigotry wrapped in perceived legitimacy.
    Your position here is a black and white position. You allow for no grey area. When in reality there is lots of grey. What you're essentially saying is that no one can open up a business for BOTH reason. IE: To make money AND further religion.

Thus, I repeat: A gay or lesbian or Black person's money is just as green and spends just as quickly as any heterosexual person or White person. So, unless you're willing to step back from one or the other, be prepared to lose alot of money on an absurd principled conviction.
    Yes, actually I CAN be a defender of both. Nothing HAS to give in this particular instance. You might WANT it to give. But it doesn't HAVE to give. Besides, I personally think that being willing to serve a pizza to someone that walks in the door but not willing to cater an event that they are against is a reasonable compromise. One isn't necessarily against the pizzaria's owners beliefs. The other is.

    Dana Loesch started the fund for them... after they closed up shop.

    It's like I said. You basically have two choices. Believe that conspiracy theory or accept the reality of the leftist response to the shop owners

    whenever I hear liberals compare this to the civil rights movement I can actually hear REVEREND Martin Luther King turn over in his grave.

    Dana Loesch was the one who interviewed them for the Blaze... she's the one who set up the funding account after the interview.


    not sure where lefties are getting this talking point from, but it doesn't' stand up to scrutiny.

    So your'e saying the Family is part of the scam because they exist then.
