    The regulation is valid when its meant to prevent harm. No other time is it valid.

    Because it has the possibility of causing harm. Whether someone reacts or not is not relevant because there was no way to tell if someone is going to react or not before someone yells "fire". The odds and statistics however are that people WILL react and someone WILL get harmed.

    The Federal government may only regulate interstate commerce. A business denying someone a service intrastate does not fall with in their purview and does not affect the entire nation as a whole.

    The excerpts from the news article mentioned Ms. O'Connor's concern about safety. There's no contradiction between the information in the news article and the tweet ReverendHellHound posted.

    Yeah you got to sell a lot of pizzas to make 50k, especially in a small town.

    What makes me wonder if this was a stunt is because the owners specially mention they won't carter ' gay weddings', then go on to say they never even catered a wedding. Why even mention something that doesn't affect them?

    Don't forget to take a good look at the 9th Amendment.

    However if you want to read it all strictly like so many that are against SSM then....Gays don't have a Right to Marry.....But of course we both know that going that route is BS huh?

    Yes indeed. Becoming like those whom they despise is very unbecoming.

    all you're doing is making me associate you with them
    What retribution and suffering are they causing by not providing a service to a gay wedding?

    And you can associate me with whoever you want to. That is your prerogative. Won't make it true though.

    Maybe they really are that hateful and pathetic and they just stumbled onto a goldmine completely unwittingly.

    A+B =/ A is usually a step too much for bigots to grasp, after all

    Correct. One was just her saying that she was concerned about their safety. The other shows why she was concerned.
