Again. We are talking about not wanting to participate in an EVENT. I doubt you are actually too stupid to get this, so you must be deliberately misrepresenting what is being discussed.

Since no one is actually doing that, what, exactly is your point? The bakeries in question didn’t want to participate in an EVENT.

A “gay” Christian wouldn’t call himself a “gay” Christian. He would simply call himself a Christian. Because he would understand that his defining characteristic is his discipleship to Christ, not his sexual appetites.

The answer is the same one I give to Muslims. It doesn’t matter. Because it is the extreme element of your ideology that drives and controls the agenda.
But to say that the majority don't feel as strong about the issue, it is just the minority.. How is that extreme... Just like the majority of Christians are nice people that continue their daily lives with out being so dramatic about so many issues not looking to stir up trouble I don't feel is so extreme. And also what "agenda" are you referring to?

Once again. This is not about refusing service to a person, but refusing to participate in an EVENT.

Right. Because as we throw off more and more of the chains of religion in the United States, life has become so much more wonderful. Crime is down, families are stronger, honesty is on the rise, selflessness and charity are exploding, self-reliance, dignity and work ethic are on the rise, life is valued more and more, compassion for others above self is becoming more and more pronounced. Why, we’re on the verge of utopia.
Crime rates are down. Abortion rates are the lowest they have been since Roe v Wade. Overall, I'd say compassion is much higher these days as people include more and more others in their circle of humanity.
Since when did Blaze start to attract so many libturds!? Religion isn't down, as you may have led to believe, it's up! Way up! Churches are packed tighter than ever, more and more millenials everyday! Don't believe everything you tead, even mr, see for yourself, you'd be extremely surprised to see whom you'd find at your local church. Jesus lives! Sin No More!

GaryNOVA you normally let other people’s actions and decisions dictate how you choose to live your life?
April 6, 2015 at 10:21pm
Perhaps. But like pretty much everything Christianity has touched, it’s been made better, nobler, and more inspiring.
there is no religious aspects of this holiday its pagan and an abomination unto the lord. sunrise services is vile to the lord and provokes Him to anger. you people are following a demons doctrine. gain some understanding and read the Word of God.

Sigh. The kind of people you describe do not inspire people to create places like Salt Lake City or Nauvoo, turning wilderness into beautiful, productive and prosperous places.

Always be wary of reports from the disaffected telling you why they left.

Completely wrong. The Founding Fathers worked to keep the government out of individual religion. They fully expected individual religious thought to be exercised within government. In fact, many of them felt it a requirement for good government and protection of liberty.

Telling Christians their viewpoint has no place in government is to essentially tell them they shall have no voice in government. You are telling them they shall have taxation, but no representation. And I doubt you even see the irony in that argument.
 April 6, 2015 at 9:32pm
Um, no. Our founding documents were not based on the Iroquois confederacy. Read the Federalist Papers. Sheesh.

You can also define a Christian nation as one whose people, culture, and laws are strongly influenced by Christian thought. Which describes the founding of America pretty accurately. Read Common Sense. The first third of the pamphlet is a biblical argument (complete with scriptural citation) as to why it is contrary to the will of God to have a king.
I agree that America has Christian underpinnings. There's no denying that. However, legally we cannot claim to be a Christian nation without the establishment of a national church.
I have read Common Sense. It makes many illogical leaps and doesn't properly defend its points. Rhetorically, it's brilliant. Logically, it fails any analysis. It definitely fails to prove that monarchy is antagonistic to the will of God (though I doubt God cares about a form of government).
 April 6, 2015 at 9:28pm
Um, that’s because the Founding Fathers proclaimed that the divine source for power rested with the people, and not a king. Thus “All men are endowed by their creator…”
I think you mean (or at least I hope you mean) the source of power rested with God and given to all people, not just a king. Power comes from above. “..all men are created equal, that they are endowed (or freely given) by their Creator with certain unalienable rights...”

The new testament is full of passages that teach that all mankind are the children of God and are to be treated as such. Now, a liberal, unable to think for himself, may need to have it spelled out in crayola: Slavery, bad; but conservatives, who can think for themselves will read those passages, understand the principle being taught, and conclude that slavery violates that principle and should therefore be eliminated.

Or the veil tore because of the earthquake. As Freud said, sometimes a cigar is a cigar.

Um, that wasn’t Israel. Israel didn’t exist at that time. The area was under British rule as a result of the collapse of the Ottoman empire after WWI.
