    Here is what C. S. Lewis had to say about the devil:

    “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. The devils themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and will hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight.”

    Haha! That last line of Stu’s had me cracking up.

    “Of course. All baked goods are covered in the Constitution.”

    Publius,

    If I don’t have a right to refuse your order because it’s for a cause I find morally offensive, then you don’t either. If I don’t have a right to refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay wedding, black people don’t have the right to refuse to make a wedding cake for a Ku Klux Klan wedding either. If a Westboro Baptist Church member came into a bakery run by a gay man, they could force him, by law, to make a cake that says “God Hates ****”.

    The law works both ways. Anything you force other people to do, they can force you to do as well. If you force people to go against their morals, religion, and consciences, that means they can force you to do the same thing.

    I’m pretty sure if it was a man who attacked and cut out her baby, they would have locked him up and thrown away the key.

    Wait, let me get this straight. There are people hearing loud audible noises in the middle of the night that sound like explosions or gunshots, and it’s all in their heads?

    What if it’s not a loud noise, but a still, small voice that awakens you from your sleep? Because that’s the kind I usually experience.

    This is hilarious! It’s better than those “dose of instant karma” videos where reckless mean drivers get into car accidents.

    Chick-fil-A should give him a job, and teach him how to be a decent person.

    I don’t see why people who go through sex change operations are somehow sacred, holy, and above any skepticism or ridicule.

    This guy obviously wasn’t TOO shocked about the crocodile. He had time to get his camera phone out and post the pictures to Facebook.

    It isn’t just the LGBT community. It’s the entire entitlement generation. It’s the people who go to the Drive-Thru at McDonald’s, order 40 things, change the order 5 times, and then demand both the food AND a refund when one tiny thing isn’t perfectly how they ordered it on the 5th time they changed their mind.

    Don’t play their game. Don’t get sucked into their psychotic self-absorbed abyss. This is about ENTITLEMENT, nothing more, nothing less. People feel ENTITLED to things, because of whatever special snowflake condition they’ve put on their life. It’s the mentality of spoiled brats.

    Don’t treat this like an argument between thinking adults. Don’t treat this like it’s a serious discussion. Treat it the way it ought to be treated: like a spoiled brat screaming “I want I want I want! Me me me! My my my! Now now NOW!”

    Okay, what about a cake with a picture of Muhammad on it? If I go into a Muslim bakery, and ask for a cake with a picture of Muhammad on it, and they get angry and refuse, does the government have a right to force them to do that?

    If you go to a Jewish deli, and you want to hire them to provide the Salad Bar at your town’s bacon festival, do they have a right to refuse, because they don’t want to celebrate bacon?

    Does the government have a right to force a black photographer to take pictures at a KKK wedding?

    See, this is the problem. If you are not allowed to discriminate as to who you choose to do business with, then you cannot actually run a business. It would be impossible.

    Also, remember that everything required by law must be reversible. If you can force a baker to make you a wedding cake, that same baker can force you to pay him, regardless of how horrible the cake is. Because at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. And if what you pay for is slave labor (forcing somebody to work for you against their will), then don’t get upset when your gay wedding is ruined by a cake that says “ALL **** WILL DIE”.

    Ripe For Parity,

    It’s not a metaphor. It’s a blatant mocking of how people think they have a “right” to everything. It’s mocking their entitlement mentality. I don’t care who or what you are. You aren’t entitled to my services and goods.

    If people are not allowed to discriminate, then Westboro Baptist Church would be able to force Mr. Sulu to do a commercial for them, and he would have to either quit being an actor, or do the work.

    You see, discrimination is a good thing. It promotes freedom. Discrimination allows people to choose what they will do, and what they won’t do. If discrimination is not allowed, you might as well just be a slave to anybody who has money.

    If you cannot discriminate, anybody can buy you.
    Anybody with money will be your master.

    You idiots missed the point. I have a right to DISCRIMINATE, period. My discrimination against you doesn’t have to be rational. It doesn’t have to be religious. It doesn’t even have to make sense. It just has to be my choice. I have every right to be the “Soup Nazi” from Seinfield. If you annoy me, if you do something I don’t like, if your wedding has a theme I don’t particularly enjoy, I have every right to say “NO SOUP FOR YOU!” and kick you out of my business.

    And I don’t have to explain WHY. You don’t like it, don’t come to my place of business anymore. Deal with it.

    Get this through your thick heads.
    You do not have a RIGHT to my goods or services.
    You do not have a RIGHT to force me to work for you.
    That is slavery.

    Got it?

    Especially considering that most people would rather shut down their business than give in to the shrieking hyperbolic gay nonsense.

    I don’t understand. What’s the big deal? Kids stand outside in 30 degree weather all the time at the school bus stop.

    I discriminate against people covered in bees too.
    If somebody covered in bees wants me to do something for them, I will tell them NO.
    I don’t care if the bees are “who you are”.
    I don’t care if you were “born this way”.
    I’m not going to let somebody covered in bees into my place of business.

    So Mr. Sulu, if somebody wants to hire you as an actor in a commercial promoting Traditional Marriage, do you seriously say you don’t have the right to reject that job, because you discriminate against people?

    Contrary to popular belief, very few people actually like Picasso. People collect his stuff because it’s rare and expensive, not because it’s good. I wouldn’t have let Picasso paint my bathroom if he were still around today.

    I like Little Big Town. I just don’t like this particular song. They tried to add in some sexual imagery to their music and it backfired. Get over it.

    Wait, what?

    What article were you reading? I didn’t hear about anybody banning anything. Nobody is “not understanding what is being said”. Nobody is “ignoring a rational explanation”. Art is very difficult and subjective, and whenever the intention of the artist doesn’t match the reception of the audience, it tends to cause these reactions.

    An audience is reacting badly to a song, and radio stations (private businesses) are avoiding it because of that reaction. Nothing is being banned. No law has been passed saying this cannot be on the air. This is absolutely NOTHING like what liberals do.

    I don’t see how criticizing a bad product is wrong. In this case, that product is a song. It is very low-quality, and people perceived the product as defective and messed up. It would be like buying a book from a famous author, getting halfway through it, realizing it’s a horrible book, and demanding your money back because it was so terrible. Or going to the movie theater to see a movie by a well-known director, only to find out midway through that it’s complete junk. Well, telling radio stations that the song is junk and you don’t want to hear it anymore is just customer feedback.

    Also, the fact that you would buy something JUST because of the reaction it is getting shows that you are probably a troll with deep, disgusting issues.

    They just did the song badly. The song is obviously about JEALOUSY (the woman wants to be the other woman). But unless you sit down and read the lyrics like a poem, it’s really, really tough to figure that out. Most people who just have the radio on in the background will never pick up on that.

    I’ve taken enough Literature to know that complex symbolism and poetry just aren’t meant to be heard. They’re meant to be READ.

    These guys are absolutely right, and they’ve been right from day one. I don’t know of anybody who believes the White House is more credible than these guys, since they, you know, actually lived with the guy and knew him.

    So rather than re-hashing the obvious, let’s talk about what REALLY matters. That guy in the middle, Josh Cornelison, is really, really good looking. Like, “he could be a supermodel” kind of handsome. Somebody get this man a modeling contract, pronto!

  • [17] March 27, 2015 at 12:01pm

    It’s because the “balanced budget” doesn’t actually do anything. It’s just a false promise for the future. It doesn’t actually do anything today.
