Yeah, how dare the American government pass standards for conduct of a business and somehow expect that the same laws should apply to everybody, instead of allowing certain businesses to say, "well, we don't want to follow that law because it's against our religion"...never mind that it's NOT part of that religion that the business owners must have that business. Of course, if I can't legally run a business without violating my religious beliefs (and I am very much a strong Christian), then I won't run that business - I'll find a different business to run.I am old enough to remember when a businessman could express support for right to life or traditional marriage or a belief that men and women are physically and tempermentally different without some angry mob descending upon him demanding that he be punished for his views.
Yeah, how dare people speak out against celebrities saying that Jim Crow wasn't so bad, that 'blacks were happier back then'! And how dare the networks react to the people speaking out against that radio show personality because they thought they might actually lose some business!I can remember when a reality show personality could express his religious beliefs when asked without organized powers demanding that he lose his position and livelihood. I can remember when people had a sense of decency and fair play and would not demand retribution be heaped on a television show host when it was revealed she had used a politically correct word many years before.
And how DARE the government target left-leaning groups for a longer period of time than it did right-leaning groups! The government should ONLY have targeted left-leaning groups, I guess.I can remember when people with name recognition did not have to fear IRS audits or other 'unusual' investigations when they spoke out in protest of certain government officials or policies.
Mm-hmm...yes, we all remember how those of differing viewpoints like "communist" and "socialist" and "Muslim" and "gay" and "lesbian" and "transsexual" and "HIV-positive" were SO WELCOMED back in the day, weren't they?I am old enough to remember when people of widely differing points of view were invited, welcomed, and treated with great respect on college campuses, but that was when students were taught to think critically and evaluate different points of view rather than being indoctrinated with one 'right' permissible point of view that is all that is allowed to be on campus.
Yes, the emotional, physical, and economic retribution now is certainly worse than it was against blacks during Jim Crow, worse than it was against LGBT's before the 2000's, worse than it was against communists and socialists during the Cold War (particularly the McCarthy era), worse than it was against anyone who wasn't white since before the Declaration of Independence was signed...There is a difference between an assumed right to speak out, and being subjected to organized emotional, physical, and/or economic retribution if you do.
...yeah, things are SO BAD, SO TERRIBLE for those on the Right - they're being SO PERSECUTED! They're the real victims, right?
“To do evil, a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good" - Solzhenitsyn
"...with the terrorists, you have to take out their families." - Donald Trump
what? are you admitting government is violating the bakers right........ you dont like the Constitution at all, it it gets in your way do you.
government passes a standard of conduct.????....hmmmm. then that would also give them the power to set conduct for how we behave in our life's to.......no sleeping around, no over eating or drinking, no foul language, no porn, ......i wonder when government got authority to be a moral entity.....since it is composed of people, ...so elected leaders, are morally superior to me and the rest of the population.
your Jim crow law does not work, that was government discrimination, and it has been stated to you several times and you keep using it, because you out of ammo.

Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
