    You have protections for your religion. As have in Canada.
    But it stops when you are practicing discriminating while in business.
    Your problem is that you believe business should be able to practice discrimination, based upon their personal religious beliefs.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

If you think it's a lie that "family" "Christian" groups don't oppose any public policy that would extend or guarantee rights for gays, then you're not paying attentioin. In the public arena, a small number of vocal and well funded "Christian" groups oppose EVERY proposal that would benefit the LGBT community, and favor many that are not in their best interests. Conservative "Christian" republicans like Pence have perfect 100%/0% records on issues of interest to LGBT. So a lot of this is just politics.

    It's too bad that Christians may get defined by those intolerant blowhards, but you clearly have no problem defining gays and liberals by a small number of vocal liberals.
    Is that your standard? So I can look up a few vile comments from bitter angry hate filled intolerant assholes that support gay marriage and you will own that?

    just proves my point about liberal arguments: they are all disposable after they get what they want
    No, his actions affected him, his/his daughter's saying they wouldn't serve pizza for a same sex wedding, which most people realize they don't mean just legal ones either. And it isn't like they're hurting after just two days. They can't even show any legitimate threats. Funny isn't it how all these places get threatened, but not one of these businesses has actually really gotten damaged, nor the people attacked?

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Many Christians...MOST Christians treat homosexuals with love. We care, we hope for their happiness, and we love them. We don't change our personal beliefs with regard to the act of homosexuality or gay marriage, but we still love them care for them, and hope for their happiness. THEIR happiness...as defined by them. We simply don't condone. and that makes a whole lot of bitter angry hate filled people gay lose their sad ****ing little minds.

    This should teach people to stop having false reactions to something that had nothing to do with them.

    And you just proved my point about almost every conservative in the world. Nothing trumps property rights.
    Yeah, look who turned out to be the winners and the losers in this.

    The pizza shop owner have $700,000 to live on and the other side has a bunch of ulcers to take medicine for.

    By this logic, I can have a profitable business by simply claiming I won't serve gays and then moan about how the ebil libruls are ruining me.
    Sure. You can do that and you know the really cool part about that? There are a whole lot of bigoted angry hate filled small little people that will emphasize your point should you decide to do that.

    If you support the right of pizzerias to deny service to gays, vote GOP.

    I never said they couldn't. Again with the lies and dishonesty. It's not helping your argument. But bad governments can be chosen, and I don't endorse those. Endorse all the bad government you want, just try to employ a little more intellectual honesty in your arguments.
