    The SCOTUS shouldn't be ruling on law based on a "moral conscience". They should be ruling on the law BASED ON THE LAW.

    Which is precisely why I'm in favor of, at the very least, amending our marriage laws to allow for any two individuals without consideration for their gender. The 14th, created via a constitutional process, established equal protection under the law. Currently, I believe there to be a clear unequal application of what can be done under the law as it pertains to gender. Thus far I've never had anyone give me an answer that sufficiently convinces me this unequal application substantially relates to serving an important state interest. As such, in my opinion, our current laws are unconstitutional.

This beliefs continues despite the fact that other countries have been persecuting Christians, Jews, and those of many other religions for decades, if not centuries or longer, and yet haven't faced anything that could be reasonably described as "God's wrath".
    True, there are many causes of Judgment. But if you think for one second SSM's won't add to the risk, then you're living in la la land.

    And you're still avoiding my question, which is why do I have to live my life according to Christian principles?
    Which laws do you break?

    Oh you mean because he chose to be intolerant some folks don't support businesses like that?

    That is called a free market.

    I support your right to believe in whatever you want to believe in, but that doesn't mean it is 'real' or 'true', and certainly not 'THE truth' … as far too many religions have been used to do horrible things during the existence of man. And just about every religion shares the same stories, and those stories date back way beyond christianity or islam…

    If I go out of my way to mock Christians using my real identity I'd lose roughly 2/3rds of my clients (at least). It's generally why religion, politics and business mix very poorly. I slipped once and started into a global warming discussion with one client, whose panties started getting into a bunch when it became clear I thought anthropological global warming was real. Within twenty seconds I backed the hell off, because I've got mouths to feed and it just wasn't worth alienating a paying customer over.

    I don't know if the baker you're referring to actually went out of business over that incident, but if he did he made his choice by going political. Good for him for taking a stand if that's how he felt, but the world isn't consequence free. If you voice your disapproval of an entire bloc of people, you're going to offend them, and there's no law that says they have to keep buying your products.

    OK which Christian tenets do you not follow?
