And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Constitution trumps all laws that are in conflict. Leftists like to cite nonexistent separation of church and sate but never realize that the text prohibits all laws restricting the free exercise of religion.
The store owner is not being prevented from worshipping her God .. . As a licensed business in the state, if she is unable to comply with state laws, she should not be in business.
Her right to believe has not been restricted. Belief is one thing. Behavior is another and can be restricted. This is NOT a matter of debate. This is the law. Don't like it, then try to change it. But while it's on the books, there will be consequences if you disobey.
If I'm Wiccan, my apartment manager cannot restrict my belief. If I decide to light a fire in my apartment to celebrate a Pagan holiday, I could be evicted and/or arrested. My belief cannot be restricted, my actions can.
Well put Maggiesway ..
You are correct about the text of the First Amendment, but your interpretation of it is not consistent with the Supreme Court, which has held that “[n]eutral laws of general applicability do not violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.”
Horribly put, Maggiesway.
The First Amendment doesn't mention belief, it explicitly states "Congress shall make no law...prohibiting FREE EXERCISE". Exercise is action, not belief. Congress cannot make any law that restricts religious action unless it violates someone else's rights. Since there is no right to associate with someone who doesn't want to associate, the explicitly stated right of the Constitution trumps the imaginary right fantasized by liberals. If liberal judges rule otherwise, they are wrong and should be negated, by Constitutional amendment or impeachment if necessary. If there is any question that the Supreme Court can be wrong, see Dred Scott and Plessy.

Government can not make laws restricting the free exercise of religion and that is what this law does. Read the First Amendment.

Many union leaders are self professed communists.

I spent 5 years as a civilian in a USCG office. I know for a fact that both civilians and military were fired and demoted because of the no tolerance porn policy. But that was before Bathhouse Barry transformed the military. You promote ( or elect ) people who make diversity and other social engineering concepts as the most important performance rating factors and you get this kind of crap. You can fire civilian employees. However the most senior people in an organization lack backbone to face letters from congress as to why their constituent is being mistreated. I know and have been personally sued for firing those that well deserved it.

I am not sure you could document your assertion that Boston Conservative represents a minority of conservative thought. Those that are of the neo conservative stripe are in my opinion heavily infected with the leftist education they received at elite leftist institutions. Elites actually have no idea what the area of the country that provides the bull of volunteers think or believe.

Besides being an as$hole what have you contributed to the country? Probably another Bradley Manning if I had to guess, Gertrude.

Anyone besides me suspicious that this is being fostered and driven by the Obama administration. The police state apparatus already exits all Obama needs is an excuse to initiate marital law. I think Obama is trying to provoke a violent response from whites so he can declare martial law.

Less tolerance by legislators,prosecutors and judges would go a long way to eliminate the problem but it is easier to restrict the rights of the law abiding citizens than enforce existing law. Isn’t that exactly what gun control groups are all about?

The government routinely violates individual rights and the strawman comment is a ploy to avoid a rational, logical counter argument. Do you have one?
Several government agencies probably monitor and store data from this site.

I don’t drink. So I feel I have every reason to object to unconstitutional searches. We are living in an incipient police state and you only worry about people killed in DUIs. At the rate we are going I hope you stick around and see how many are killed but the liberty grabbing government when they start eliminating enemies of the state.

If Sharpton is a pimp, and he is, then Obama is a john looking for a guy.
Pres. Obola is a bit queer all over. Is Larry Sinclair dead?

I voted against her in 2008. I was not living here in 2002.

I am pleased to have legally voted twice to retire this leftist elite. I wrote her and advised her not to vote for Obabacare and when she did I wrote again and told her she would not be reelected and I would personally work to see that.. I am not sure I trust Cassidy but he is much better Princess Mary.

I have to say I have yet to see a choke hold in that video. There is a reason MMA fighter “tap out” in response to a real choke hold. You can’t say” I give up” or “I can’t breathe”. A choke hold that will cut off the air and blood flow will also prevent you from speaking. Garner was speaking clearly not as a man being disabled by a choke hold.

It is Washington DC, schools there are worst in the country. They elected Raymond Berry Mayor after serving time. She is only interested in using these cases for political purposes so fact mean nothing.

The problem is resisting arrest. Both men would be alive hadt hey just followed the commands of the officers.
I have encountered LEOs that abuse their authority and it is never a good idea to challenge a man carrying a weapon. Yes sir, no sudden moves and do exactly what they tell you. You may politely challenge why the are stopping or detaining ask the probable cause but be polite and recognize when you are about to set off a power crazy jerk and be silent.

They do not worship the same God, the Prophet of Islam is a pedophile and Allah is an idol.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had surgery to place a stent in her right coronary artery.
That is not heart surgery and does not involve the heart. The cam is inserted in the artery in the groin, that is on cut made.

I will close by quoting another commenter’s thoughts on the subject which is at the heart of matters as far as Christians are concerned. Government does pass laws restricting the free exercise of religion.

While at the same time they applaud the LGBT community in their efforts to get the Federal government to force Christians to bake cakes for them, to force Christians to take their wedding photos, to force Christian pastors to marry them in … a church…
On the one hand they demand the separation of church and state, yet on the other they demand total unification of the same.”
