    Re: Indiana's 'No Gay Wedding' Pizzeria Has Closed

    What is it now, over half a million?

    The moment this story broke, as I expected, the left didn't hesitate to label the owners of that restaurant bigots and haters. At least this time there's no need for me to waste my time disagreeing with them, because folks from all over the country took care of that for me.

    All those donation that keep pouring in make a hell of a lot better argument than I, or anyone else ever could. Just as every one of you know, the American people don't open their checkbooks and pour their hearts out to those who are intolerant, hateful or mistreat others... They're making it quite clear who the victims of hatred and intolerance are, as well as the ones who are inflicting it.

    Well, if you're denying service to someone based on their sexuality, you are a bigot.

    Do you hear that?

    I'm sure the fund for religious freedom appreciates your contribution.

    p.s. they did no such thing.

    Really? You are literally a bigot if you deny service to someone based on their sexuality.

    I totally agree... But that isn't what that restaurant did.

    It's not? This is new to me. Refusing to cater pizza at gay weddings isn't bigoted/intolerant? Hm, interesting.

    Greetings, Grim17.

    Great post! Haven't talked with you in a while. Hope all is well with you and yours.

    I think I read earlier that they had been given over $877,000 dollars before those handling the collections stopped accepting donations. Thousands of people from all over the country took part.

    Update: I checked back through lots of posts, and what was collected was $842,327.

    Bigot:
    a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

    :: a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. : a bigoted person; especially : a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)


    denying service based on sexuality might indeed be bigotry ( not inherently, but it probably is, nonetheless)... throwing the word "bigot" around.

    unfortunately, bigots calling bigots bigots doesn't leave a lot of room for much moral or ethical high ground. <shrug>

    Do you think your targets even care about being called a bigot?
