    4.) so does a baker have the right to not make a cake for someone. (logic)
    1.)what "rights" would be accommodated by denying gays equal rights
    2.) baker and florist rights are in tact
    3.) duck dantasy rights were intact
    4.) if this is a question it isnt a black or white question

    2. no they are not. If they dont want to participate in that because they believe its wrong, they shouldnt have to.
    3.) If a gay baker said They didnt want to bake a cake for a straight marriage its not likely there would be a big deal about it on tv and taking up tax dollars in the courts, no... the straight people would just take their business elsewhere.
    4.) yea, I was actually talking about a&e's rights here, but its not my fault you dont have a very good grasp on the english language(its the language you are reading now)
    5.) it isnt black or white but you still were unable to read between the lines on my comments to gain comprehension on was I said. but hey I am glad you at least tried, good job!!!
    1.) theres no such right to illegally discriminate so again what RIGHTS would be accommodated
    2.) yes their rights are 100% in tact, if you disagree simply post the right that is not intact.
    3.) this is a cute story and you are welcome to have this subjective opinion but the fact remains if that gay baker discriminated against the straight couple that would be illegal in that state, in that state it is illegal to discriminate against a person based on SEXUAL ORIENTATION.
    4.) deflections like these only further expose the fact you cant defend your postilion and they provide entertainment for me lol
    but if you would like to talk about A&Es rights lets do it, they do NOT have the right to discriminate based on religions BUT if there was a CONTRACT between A&E and DD and it had a conduct or moral clause etc they could fire DD for violating it.

    now if you would like to be honest and talk about this please do

    5.) translation: you are still deflecting and unable to honestly, factually back up your failed claims. Maybe next post you will, we'd love to read it

    Re: If there was a National Vote on Equal rights for gays, what would you do. [W:72]

    I've yet to hear one single straight person explain how allowing two gay people to marry will have any direct effect on their life/marriage.

    A simple and logical reason for that is because straight people won't be effected at all by SSM.

    Just like allowing a black man to marry a white woman had no effect on millions of marriages.
    Just like allowing a Jew to marry a Catholic had no effect on millions of marriages.
    Just like allowing an Asian to marry someone from Ireland has no effect on millions of marriages.

    The stance some people take against SSM boils down to ignorance, religious arrogance, and selfishness all rolled into one.

    I wonder if the left would let the issue drop if there was a national vote....As a Conservative I would let it drop if the vote went against me....What say you left wingers, would you let it drop for good.

    Last time I checked we both have the same right. You want a special right.

    I think the point is an equal right.
