    This does nothing to address what I stated.
    You were the one who brought up irrelevant schools.

    You were saying?
    Did I stutter?

    Your link talks about the newlyweds cutting the cake and feeding it to each other. I must have missed the part where the talk about catering.

    And the baker doesn't cut it and feed it to the newlyweds. And it's a cake, not a pizza.

    You've gone from pizza, to catering, to caterers, to caterers sometimes supply cakes to "that means the pizza is religiously significant"

    Do you really believe this somehow means catering a pizza makes it a religious practice?

    I have trouble believing you actually believe they don't. It's been more than 50 years since the govt has been banning discrimination.

    You have not presented any argument that shows the govt can't ban discrimination other than "They can't do that" while I have referred to the numerous laws which have withstood court challenges. Even the wingnut christians who want to discriminate aren't claiming that the govt doesn't have the power to ban discrimination against gays - they're only arguing that they should have a religious exemption from that ban.

    If they believed as you do, they wouldn't have a passed a law granting an exemption for the religious; They would have filed a court case.

    They said they'd serve anyone. just didn't want to participate in catering an event.


    Jefferson was about individual liberty so he probably disagrees with you on just about...... everything.

    it's a bit odd that so many lefties started bringing up this theory .. nearly in unison.
    that's usually indicative of talking points being thrown out by some ideologically bent outlet.



    I came up with it. it was kinda funny, now all these liberals are running with it.

    What is it that sangha says? "the seller of a bat isn't endorsing violence if someone uses a bat to bash someone's skull in." You can't have it both ways.
    He is not me, and the govt handing out bibles at a public school to children is an entirely different thing than selling a pizza.

    The lengths you are going to find something analogous to support the claim that catering is an endorsement goes to show just how tenous a grip on reality that argument has.

    Last time I checked, slaves weren't allowed to open their own business, nor were they free to quit if they didn't like what the job required.

    There is no servitude.

    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    You are absolutely right NP - How dare those blacks demand to sit next to us and eat at our white lunch counters. You think they would be happy sitting in the back with their own kind. You give them a foot and they want a mile. Disgusting.
