    Yeah, I'm the one with an incorrect conception of bigotry. Sure, buddy.
    I'm sorry but a degree in sociology is nothing to get charged up about. It doesn't make you smart and in fact more often than not leads to a career that has something to do with french fries, so don't break your arm patting yourself on the back.

    You need to stop confusing conservatives with people who follow religion.
    Maybe I do, and maybe I'm guilty of trolling a couple prominent conservative posters here.

    See, you're doing it again. You say, "I'm conservative and/but..." and then you express a liberal value. I think you're a closet liberal, that's what I think. Hey, there's no shame in it! 'Liberal', despite what some say, doesn't mean socialist or 'statist' or welfare-state apologist or any of those other slanderous boogeymen that conservatives (okay, some conservatives) want to apply.

    I'm Democrat and pretty liberal but I also hold some very conservative views. Doesn't make me a conservative.

    IMO, to see them and practice them as completely black and white is damaging, rigid, and close-minded. Actually, to me it means someone *generally* isn't thinking for themselves.

    Let's just be a bit more careful when we proclaim our superior knowledge. One never knows when an educated person is around and actually knows wtf they're talking about.

    The word is almost universally associated with not liking people due to race, skin color, gender, religion or sexual orientation... not duck hunters.

That is and should be illegal. What I am saying is that we should be free to associate with who we wish. Likewise it's appropriate for the religious to make those associations based on their values.

    Personally, I'm not religious. If I were a baker and a gay couple wanted a cake, I'd wrap them in fondant and plant a candle on top. I support those who don't feel as I do however.
    They have the right to not freely associate to their hearts content in a club or at home... a business open to the public though? They can not discriminate and it is and should be illegal.

    I'm not the one who claimed superior knowledge Mr. I have a degree in sociology. I agree with you. Be more careful.
