That isn’t specifically gay marriage hurting the OP, though. The examples given are of idiot liberals spouting nonsense and the coming lack of freedom of speech that will hurt us, not gay marriage itself. The point that should be made is that we are going to lose our right to free speech. We’ve lost a lot of it already in corporate America — just try telling all your coworkers you think marriage should be between a man & a woman, and see if you don’t get sent to HR and punished or even fired. It has now come to keeping one’s mouth shut in order to survive financially and remain employable. There’s a reason I don’t use my real name here or to comment on other news sites. It is ridiculous how this politically correct nonsense is now going to prevent people from keeping jobs/getting jobs.

I make it a point not to post religious or political views on my Facebook page as there are people from my workplace who are friends on it. I talk about it with my friends offline, but not on Facebook, I am single and female and don’t have a husband — I have to keep my job.

Save the art. If you can at all afford it, buy some art with the flag and save it. This will be valuable in years to come.

When you work for a news organization and diss someone who is at a higher level than you, is it that surprising that you are in big trouble for having dissed them? Use your brains, people!!!

Um let’s see, they legalized drinking when they got rid of the Prohibition era. Prostitution is legal in Japan and Germany. Abortion is legal. The govt. attempts to legislate gluttony by forcing restaurants to advertise calorie counts, but that doesn’t stop people from eating the food. Divorce is legal in most countries. Gay marriage has now been declared legal by our high court. Need I go on?
Naw. we are screwed. Thanks for reminding us how Germany is a complete shambles, Japan is fixated with sex and how much better off the USA is now that we can get high or drunk at will....and still drive. You are a pip.

I knew it. Glad I ordered my DVDs before it’s totally banned. BTW, Ben Jones held office as a Democrat, something this story does not say.

This idiotic killer got a gun for a birthday present. What are we going to do, outlaw giving away guns? How are you going to be able to enforce such a law? It’s impossible without cameras in every home.
Nah, just give guns, tanks, shoulder rocket missiles, to every nut bag that says "pretty please"!!

These are old photos. Why are they making news now and not in 2012? I find that odd.
That having been said, these young women are acting like kids. They were old enough to know better.

It goes to show that liberals are so anti-military that they will do this kind of thing to our vets. We have given them too much power as a society.

I don’t understand why they are trying to push this nonsense on us. The facts are that 2 police officers were shot. Nothing more, nothing less. Why would he not be punished for his actions?

As someone who was raised Lutheran in the upper Midwest, it boggles my mind that any church would claim it doesn’t believe that Jesus was God and still call itself Christian. That is the very definition of Christianity. There are other liberal churches that will marry gays, but those churches do not teach that Jesus wasn’t God.

There is no need for a redesign unless the number of states changes.

I agree. Has to be subsidized rent. But then, if one is getting subsidized rent, one probably should not be signed up with Comcast.

To me, this whole debate is like a vegan taking a job at a grocery store, getting assigned to the deli, and refusing to cut meat for sandwiches but still wanting to keep the job. Or if you want to use religion, say a Muslim being forced to cut pork at a job and protesting against it. (Though, the Muslim probably would not apply for such a job to begin with.)
If the rest of us did not want to do a task at our jobs, we would be fired. If you know that the potential exists strongly for having to do something you don’t believe in, while you are doing a particular job and getting paid for it, you probably should go into another line of work to begin with.
In the consumer v business setup - you fire somebody by not using their service
Avoidance is the course most people will take.
People of faith are incensed that the "sacrament of marriage", the spiritual and physical union personally performed by God for Adam and Eve is being abused by Sodomites. The rest is simply BullS!ht.
Sorry...but these bakers, photographers, printers, etc. have been in business long before SSM was made legal, they did not apply for a job or open a business with the knowledge that they would be FORCED to bake cakes, photograph, or perform a SSM...but if they're smart, they'll streamline the work they do and cut out the red tape BS of government.
You win the Dumbest Post of the Day Award...
If you know that the potential exists strongly for having to do something you don’t believe in, while you are doing a particular job and getting paid for it, you probably should go into another line of work to begin with.
Is there a job in the world that has no potential for being asked to do something you don't believe in?
Your beliefs will inform your actions, whatever they are. Whether you are a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker, or something else there will be times when your beliefs may conflict with those of others. Are you free to choose to live by your own beliefs?
You may have convictions about human dignity that impel you to be polite, even to people who are quite rude. You may have religious convictions that shape how you interact with the world and the people in it.
Can you separate how you live your life.... from the life you are living?
That is the argument of people who think your beliefs should be "private": that you can be a Christian at home, but at work you have to do as you are told ...that you don't have the right to refuse business that you find offensive.
Beliefs inform actions and you can't compartmentalize between them and remain sane and healthy.
We need to re-learn how to agree to disagree, instead of demanding that other people comply with what we want or else.

Some people with dwarfism have gone on to do some very awesome things. Peter Dinklage, for example. Don’t just abort babies because they might not be what you want.
85-90% of fetuses with Down's syndrome are aborted so all lot of couples get pro choice pretty fast.

Personally, I would ask Him why people born into other countries that worship other deities, and do not convert for various reasons (tradition, fear of death if it happens to be an Islamic country, etc.) should be tortured for all of eternity, if they were a kind and decent person otherwise and never hurt anyone in their lives. That might just be me, though.
That’s somewhat along my way of thinking.
I could spend my whole life being an honorable person, treating those around me kindly and with respect… but none of that matters for anything…
The only condition is that I prostrate myself before him, feeding his ego with how glorious he is, worshipping his every moment?
How is that a god worthy of my respect?
I shall save my respect and admiration for those who earn it without expecting anything in return for it. Certainly not one who demands it by threat.
ALL have sinned and fall short. We've inherited the sinful nature of Adam & Eve. No one ever needs to be taught how to sin, right? Christianity isn't about what we do that's good. it's all about God's love and grace for those that step out in faith and accept God's gift for their sins.
And it is a shame that many are ignorant. That is not how it plays out. The millennium is set up to teach discipline to those who were never taught the truth about Christ. Thus, those who were not murderers, and did not support the murder of another soul, are going to be in the millennium. God gave each of us what we deserved in terms of the life we are in.

If Palin runs for President, she will need a much better PR team than when she was running for Vice President.

I completely agree. If it’s Huckabee vs. Clinton, I’m voting Libertarian.
