I guess he did not read 1 corinthians 5 and the end of Romans 1 otherwise he would have noted that the ENDORSEMENT of sin is at the heart of the issue. For example, if a church member was cheating his wife and bragging without repentance, would it be right for the Church body to embrace such actions?Nope ….

Yeah, we’re free and our government is here for us.

Criminals will always get guns and these gun control laws only leave the innocent citizens victims! Over 4000 gun laws and criminals still get guns. Also, since 1987 when gun homicides peaked, we are at 1964 levels of “gun homicides”.
In my home town, gun violence is still high but way down since CCW and open carry normalized. Every single day I see multiple people openly carrying a firearm in town. Strangely, the gun violence is isolated to low income housing and people with a residential history including California.

I am offended that my money is put towards the murder of innocent children and since I have admitted that I’m offended the White House will have to stop the funding…right? They remove crosses and Christmas trees when one person complains…this should be a no brainer!
I'm offended that even one cent of my taxes go to corporate welfare. So let's stop that.
I wish we were paying for abortions. It would be one of the best investments of public funds we could make. Anybody who can't afford an abortion sure as hell can't afford a baby.
 July 14, 2015 at 11:50am
Yeah, and criminals only want to make an honest living and not bother anyone.

Could someone please show me where in the Bible gays are endorsed by God to be married? It’s very clear and when Churches start endorsing (key word ENDORSING—making excuses;for) this ,as with other sins, will detroy the Church and this is what they want. That’s the end goal!
The same place it says people can get divorced and remarried.

The law is blatantly unconstitutional. Do you believe in freedom of speech? Are they the only baker? What about the Christian pastor that was denied by 9 gay bakeries to make a “straight” cake—-nothing happened…why? Because we live in a country of “men” and not laws. The double standard is obvious and Americans aren’t buying it! That’s why they changed the story.
 July 13, 2015 at 11:08am
If it was an abortion clinic it would be considered “funny, brave and becoming”.

Do NOT pay the fine and DO NOT go to jail. This is an Unconstitutional “ruling”. It’s time we take a stand and not comply!
The money they raised in the crowd funding campaign should help them bring the case to higher courts- which it will need to. You're not going to find justice in Oregon unfortunately.
ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!!! Paying the fine would be the worst decision ever. This guy is on the right track. He just needs the Christians of this country to wake up and stand WITH him. We need to all support this family!
“An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
BLACKDIAMOND, "He just needs the Christians of this country to wake up and stand WITH him."
Slightly disagree. Every freedom lover needs to stand with him and his wife. I am an atheist but I can assure you I fully support these Christians and am against the injustice they are facing.
The Supreme Court majority that has made gay marriage legal across this land has assured us that their decision will not in anyway impede religious freedom. This case and many like it need to get to the Supreme Court.
Let's find out.
Ten years ago I would have agreed with that, but unfortunately, the SCROTUS has recently forfeited all of their credibility. I'm no lawyer, but Justice Kennedy's claim that this would not violate religious liberties was nothing more than CYA.
Every freedom lover needs to stand with him and his wife. I am an atheist but I can assure you I fully support these Christians and am against the injustice they are facing.
Well then.... If that is the case, I've never been more proud and honored to stand beside you. I'll stand next to people like you all day. It's about our fellow citizens, our neighbors, and friends. We ALL need to gather arm and arm against this type of tyrannical rule.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
No...the business is in a public setting. Rules are different... That's why they will lose any rebuttal. Now, if they did this business from their home? Different story.
Pardon my language but screw the gays.
"We ALL need to gather arm and arm against this type of tyrannical rule."
Arm and arm = 2 arms. Therefore, I would rephrase your statement as:
"We ALL need to gather arms against this type of tyrannical rule."
Sorry Caprico but they’ve already murdered that one too. Remember the couple that owns their family ranch? Yeah it is really beautiful there, some people asked to be married there, and it turned into a thing?
Years later of everything going well -using the ranch house for receptions, etc. they welcomed a gay couple in with open arms and explained they would be overjoyed to take care of their reception and every need, but they could not promote the ceremony itself on their property. That’s it. Aside from the wedding itself, we will really do everything up for you big time!
What happened? You know what happened. Lawsuit, money, bullcrap. Lots of it.
That is as 'from home' as it gets when you're operating out of your own house and on your own property. Nothing leased from any city, etc. Crazy stuff.
Let’s all make a pact right here and now that we will all volunteer to go armed to their place of business and home to defend their religious rights. I’m dead serious. Let’s finally do something about it. Take shifts, what ever it takes. I mean a MASSIVE response. Not just a couple of people. Who is with me? Just like the BLM deal. Let's change the tide once and for all.
If there is a point when they are going to be arrested, I'll be happy to help hold the line against authorities. I'm tired of the rights of individuals being dictated by degenerates. If you want a cake, bake it your f'ing self.
Based on the recent overreach of the SCOTUS into the Legislative Branch and unswerving support of the Executive Branch, I highly doubt that religious freedom will win out. If our basic rights as outlined in the Constitution are “interpreted”, and become “reflections of the progress of society”, they will be legislated out of existence at all levels of government. If the citizens of America allow it to occur, they can blame only themselves.
I used to support unconditionally the rights of homosexuals to live their lives unmolested. Their rights just met my nose, so respect goes out the window: To receive respect, one must give respect. They fall woefully short.
Isn't this the case where the State of Oregon was found to be in collusion with the LGBT activists and asking advice on how to proceed or something along those lines?
Also, since we all know where the Christian family's home and business are located, can we please have the address of the lesbian couple? I think we should intimidate them relentlessly and destroy them also. I am dead serious, let's turn this thing around for good.
PLEASE boycott the State of Oregon and all of its products.
These Lesbians traveled more than 35 miles from their home town, in order to deliberately target a Christian bakery.
These 2 Lesbians are well off, co-owners of a construction company, and with all of the LGBTQ crowd in the Portland area, finding a gay owned bakery would have been amazingly easy..
Portland now wants the city to pay for sex change surgery for its workers, they want a $15.00 an hour minimum wage, they want community college to be free for everyone in certain age brackets, and PDX is a sanctuary city just like San Francisco.
The middle class is being squeezed out of the area because of the high taxes and the cost of housing, but never fear, Portland's solution is midnight basketball for its many gang members and legalized dope.
Euthanasia on demand, the most liberal abortion laws in the US, hostile to religion but welcoming to dopers, lay abouts and radical environmentalists, PLEASE boycott the state and let them know why you are doing it.

First the airlines, now wall street—what’s next, our power *glitch*?
I agree with what you wrote, (however let's be truly honest and also admit many have died or been made to die in the name of a God, including Christianity) but what does any of that have to do with this article? Yes I read his username. So what. Lighten up a little.

Maybe he was “in on it”….inside job!
 July 6, 2015 at 4:36pm
I was thinking the same thing—I believe MD is like NJ and the homeowner has a “duty to retreat”. There should be no description of the castle doctrine, because common sense would make the case “your house you’re right to defend it…no restrictions”.

Embracing socialism and communism by the masses—what could ever go wrong?

I worked in a seafood store for numerous years while going through college. We used to get wild caught Tuna and swordfish—throw a little soy sauce or teriyaki and you will see these parasites trying to get out of the steaks and fillets asap. They are there in most fish at any given time—shows it’s fresh!
 June 26, 2015 at 3:10pm
Forced “love” from a corrupt bunch of political “judges”? If that’s the meaning of love I want nothing to do with it….
 June 26, 2015 at 2:36pm
Since the states must afford rights in marriage, then all states must afford the 2A right to carry— NJ, MD, NY, CA, etc. It is our RIGHT!
Nope, anti-gay marriage laws were unconstitutional because they treated some citizens unequally with citizens of the same state. Nothing about this decision contradicts the principle that different states can have different laws. There may be good Constitutional arguments that many states’ gun laws go too far, but they are unrelated to the issues that decided this case.
June 26, 2015 at 11:48am
Have you read Romans 1? 1 Corinthians 5? Outside of the church body, it’s not for us to judge but once it’s FORCED upon the Church body, now we are supposed to oppose. Either way we’re considered hypocrites by the world, that’s why we follow God, not warped, fallible, worldly ever changing thinking!
 June 26, 2015 at 11:40am
Yeah, our government is here to help our society. Keep believing that anything anti-God and Anti-Christian will advance and grow a healthy society. Every single society in the history of man that rids of Christians and their values ends up in very dark times with death and tyranny. Keep supporting this folks, remove Christians and the truth and see what you get—it ain’t gonna’ be pretty.
 June 26, 2015 at 11:06am
we need to start preparing because it’s pretty obvious our political system, checks and balances and media are not there for us anymore. I feel the time of complaining and finger pointing is only a distraction. I really feel (felt it for some time) we are at the beginning of very tough and trying times. There’s nothing wrong with preparing as it’s better to “have and not need than to need and not have”.
