    2.) Christian owners were punished for not participating in homosexual marriages upon request. The law allowed this, it's a legal form of persecution.
    3.) Christians are also socially persecuted by many.
    4.) The fact that many, and even some on this bored, will jump to label all Evangelicals as "bigots" or "haters" and judge them right from the getgo is a prime example of that.
    1.) just because you havent supported your false beliefs doesnt mean i didnt address them. I did and what you said simply isnt true on any logic or legality and or faith.
    2.) wrong again, that did not happened they CHOSE to break the law
    nobody hunted them out and say hey you, you must become a baker, then you must sell wedding cakes then you must sell them to the gay wedding
    3.) this is meaningless so are blacks, white, fat people, skinny people, dorks, jocks etc etc etc that has nothing to do with the OP
    4.) you mean like "many" judge again women, men, blacks, whites etc???? boowhooooo again nothing to do with the OP

    i already asked this in another post but since you used the example ill ask you directly because it shows what you are claiming not to be true at all in any sense

    the nonsense of freedom and rights to practice religion can be defeated with one simple question
    I chose to own a bakery, while running said bakery im not allowed to break the law and infringe on rights like everybody else so how does that impact my ability to practice my religion?

    how, can anybody give me one way it doesnt?

    Not if you're Christian. Of course, if you're one of the protected classes of LGBTQRSLMNOP, it's another story.

    Is it also discrimination and intolerance that anti-interracial marriage people who own a bakery would have to bake a cake for a mixed marriage?

    Christians believe Christ rose again. Beyond that, they pick and choose all sorts of deviations and tenets to follow, some quite bizarre. That's why there are hundreds of separate tiny schisms cults and sectarian divides within it. I'm sure you are in no position to pass judgement on his faith or otherwise.

    You are an enthusiastic advocate of many ideals which are inconsistent with Christianity, far too many to list here. You obviously don't believe, or follow the Word of God as given to Christians in the Bible. Not sure why you feel the need for this charade, other than following the lib play book.

    No. It's almost logistically impossible for them to be.

    Nearly 80% of America is Christian, including the vast majority of our politicians of any party, most liberals, and probably at least a very large minority of gay people (because let's not play around and pretend this isn't about conservative anti-gay people -- that's exactly who this is about).

    Exactly who would be "discriminating" against them? Because as far as I can tell, they own absolutely everything.

    Just because the extremist Evangelicals don't get to make America into a theocracy that oppresses people doesn't mean Christians are discriminated against. They're simply not allowed to be tyrants.

    2.) again if its so obvious then please list the ways i don't do this, i fit right in at my church
    3.) what charade, you keep making all these statements and cant back them up with anything factual lol
    4.) wrong again, not a lib but im curious could you tell us what the lib playbook is and whats in it?

    You only experience such "discrimination" when you try to force your beliefs on others.

    For the first time in thousands of years,,,,,the masses can push back.

    What you're experiencing is a loss of collective power. You're experiencing equality and a level playing field.

    You don't like it because you can no longer make up the rules as the game moves along.

    Many would call that "justice".
