    When you have religious zealots that believe that bad weather (or any other disaster) is god's revenge upon sinners (as if an all powerful god could not target individual "sinners") then this is to be expected. The idea that the "sinful" actions of someone else causes god to exact some sort of revenge upon those that do not stop them from "sining" is not religious freedom but a dangerous bunch of nuts, not unlike those that would kill/harm those not "of the true faith" in a Jihad.

    My first thought was that the statement in question had to be a case of somebody said that somebody said, not an actual quote from the AFA. Who would make such a statement? Certainly, not a practicing Christian!

    So, I checked that idea out. Not so. It appears that the vice president of the AFA actually did make this absurd statement:

    Buddy Smith, executive vice president of Tupelo-based American Family Association, offers his take on the sticker campaign. "It's not really a buying campaign, but it's a bully campaign," he says, "and it's being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture. "They don't want to hear that homosexuality is sinful behavior – and they wish to silence Christians and the church who dare to believe this truth." Smith offers a word of caution for those who do business with facilities posting the decal supporting homosexual activism. "If you do that, you are agreeing with these businesses that Christians no longer have the freedom to live out the dictates of their Christian faith and conscience," he tells OneNewsNow.

    WWJD? Throw out the homosexuals? Refuse them service?

    What an anti Christian attitude masquerading as Christianity!

    Irony. I'm guessing you're ok with Christian symbols in courtrooms and schools. You're definitely ok with Christian symbols on car and homes, right? You're probably also ok with Christian symbols in businesses. One or all of those things being true renders your objection flat-out BS.

    Posting a sticker on your store window saying you DON'T discriminate is now "bullying".


    Only one response to that...

    It just occurs to me that if some business didn't know about the little sign deal, and therefore didn't post a sign, customers may mistakenly believe they harbor some anti-gay sentiment.

    We've entered a period in society where fascism needs to be pushed back against. In fact, I think we've gone quite a bit past the "entered a period" stage.

    I personally can't imagine not accepting anyone's business, but I don't think I should have to prove it with a sign.

    To me, it seems the concept of slippery slope has never been taught. History has provided overwhelming evidence that the concept is real, and destructive.

    What now "not discriminating" is fascism? Your slippery slope is more like a cliff, you automatically take the sentiment that they don't discriminate and go right to fascism.

    I love pronouncements like yours. "My points are so profound, if anyone of them apply to you, you're eliminated".

    How obnoxious can one be?

    So, from your lofty perch, anyone who displays a Christian symbol is anti-gay, or otherwise biased, and should be viewed as an enemy?

    If that's not the case, why would a Christian symbol create fear and loathing in anyone? If owners are jerks, let their business fail, as it should.

    On the other hand, wouldn't it be possible to conclude the absence of this "qualifying sticker" among other business who display it, means the business plans to discriminate? What if that weren't true?

    If the Christian symbol really means that gays won't be served, then it is not really Christian, is it? If it simply means that the owner of the business believes in Christ, then it is just a symbol of his or her faith. Nothing wrong with that.
