    You wanna try again or are you happy having struck out three times already?

    LOL If they want public money they certainly would.


    Talk about pathetic. You won't even acknolwedge they are being punished for not accepting homosexuality.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Of course it did. You simply aren't being honest about the law or what it denies groups who don't believe they should be forced to accept homosexuality.

    If they want public money, they can follow the same rules as everyone else. It's not punishment when you are withheld something by your own actions and something you aren't entitled to anyway. Funny how you're all up in arms about entitlements being withheld when it's something you agree with but how you would otherwise be ****ting a brick over it.

    Game set match. You're done.

    No it didn't. You simply aren't being honest about the law or how it hands out money to groups based on Constitutional protections and equal treatment.

    Oh, right -- it doesn't. It just says that taxpayer money can't be used to justify their discrimination. They can go right on practicing their bigotry without any government interference whatsoever.

    They are being denied access to public money because they do discriminate, in the same way that they can deny the KKK or a Muslim group that won't let women join.

    This is the typical response of the religious nuts: they discriminate left and right for reasons that have no basis in logic, but when someone challenges them they claim to be the victims. Pitiful, actually.

    It's not like getting that money is a right or anything.

    They're forced to follow the same rules as everyone else. And now you're suggesting that different rules be made for the churches? That they should get some special privilege?
