    No, because the victim is black.

    There’s no hatred or hostility in saying you don’t think he existed. I know that Superman isn’t a real guy, but I certainly don’t hate him. He is an entirely admirable fictional character, as is Jesus, if it turns out that he too is not real.

    On first reading I missed the part where it said the school was probably going to do the right thing and take it down, and I though they might pointlessly waste money on legal fees trying to fight it as often happens. There is no free speech right to erect on public property a monument to your opinion about a subject that is entirely a matter of opinion.

    Well, if he was moving to California, then shouldn’t have had every single one of his belongings including his guns in his car because some of them ain’t legal there. You’re not supposed to have an AR without reconfiguring it to comply with local law, and you’re not supposed to have high capacity magazines. Living in your car doesn’t make it a home in the eyes of the law, so even your legal guns have to be locked up for transport, not stashed for easy access. And you are only supposed to have an AR if you are taking it somewhere it is legal to shoot, you can’t drive around with it all day.

    How has he been in jail for too long? His car full of guns was already illegal before he ever crossed the border, and he could have been sentenced to several years in prison if he had been caught with them here. And you don’t get out on bail if you try to escape like he did on his first night in custody in Mexico. He’s been in jail just about the right amount of time for somebody as dumb as him to learn his lesson.

    Yes, take it down, and don’t waste any of the public’s money trying to pretend that you shoudln’t take it down.

    The government is not dictating a belief. You can believe what you want, but you can’t use your belief as an excuse to discriminate against gay customers, just as you cannot practice ritual human sacrifice, even if you believe in a religion that says you should.

    Biological production of children is not the primary purpose of marriage and nobody ever said it was until a few years ago when same sex couple started getting married. Lots of straight couples can’t have biological children together. This doesn’t stop them from being parents and raising families, and it doesn’t stop same sex couples either. Procreation isn’t the most important part of parenthood; it’s the least.

    I never said that there wasn’t a God. There very well may be, but I know that he didn’t say any of the anti-gay garbage in the Bible because it is really stupid and God is supposed to be smart.

    Huh? I think you meant to respond to Hormel’s comment, below.

    Tebow absolutely deserved to be ridiculed, not for being a man of faith, but for being a vainglorious man given to ostentatious displays of piety. If people see you praying every ten minutes, when you haven’t been doing anything except playing football since the last time they saw you pray, it makes you look presumptuous and childish, as if you somehow imagine that God could actually give a crap about the result of your stupid football game.

    So, you’re absolutely certain that Tebow was let go because he is a Christian, but literally the only person you can think of who still has a job despite being as bad or even worse than him is a dude who is actually named Christian? Okay, if you really want to rest your case, but I still say it was his arm.

    No, they would not, because the Oregon Civil Rights law forbids businesses from discriminating on the basis of religion, as does that of every other state, including those that have not yet been revised to protect against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

    You are correct, sir. If you are going to use disgusting fondant instead of delicious butter cream icing, you should at least take advantage of its rubbery texture to do something really creative, rather than just make cakes that look like cardboard hatboxes in nasty unnatural colors.

    There has been no such thing as a right to refuse service to anyone under the laws of the United States for a very long time. That’s the way it is and you might as well get used to it because that’s the way it’s going to stay. It is right and necessary that government forbids discrimination by businesses that serve the public. People in this country must depend on private businesses for the necessities of life, not just luxuries like cakes and hotel rooms. If you allow discrimination, there would be no way to prevent organized discrimination that would deny a targeted group the right to choose where to live. If you allow religion as an excuse to justify discrimination, then bigots just have to invent religions to validate their prejudices.

  • [-8] September 30, 2014 at 10:16am

    That’s silly. At least 70% of the people in this country are Christians, and only a tiny handful of them are so insanely anti-gay that they would rather destroy their own businesses than obey the law.

    No. I’m not the arbiter of when conscience applies and when it doesn’t. They have judges for that, and they all say that I’m right and you’re wrong. They don’t say this because they are wanton activists, or because they haven’t read the Oregon Constitution; they say it because ‘m right and you’re wrong.

    Tebow was never penalized by a ref for praying, and it had nothing to do with why he’s not in the NFL any more. If he could throw with reliable consistency, he’d be a starting quarterback somewhere, but he can’t, and a good ground game will only take you so far in the big league.

    Not to in any way endorse your contention that this is the most relevant information, but one of them is very attractive with just a cute little hint of butch in a girl you can take to a baseball game for a first date kind of way rather than a girl you might find coaching the ball team kind of way. The other is more feminine, a little on the heavy side, but not at all unattractive if that isn’t a deal breaker for you.

    Muslims are religious, but they have common sense when it comes to making a living. The guys who run the deli up the street from me are Muslim, but they have no problem selling me ham sandwiches and beer.
