    You’re a Wesley Crusher.

    This business is not a church. No actual church has ever or will ever be forced to perform weddings against their doctrines, and to the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever even said that they should have to, or expressed a desire to force them to. You probably just been think that this has happened because you have been reading comments on this site from people whop are sure it is going to happen for so long that you have forgotten that it is a problem that exists only in their heads, not in the real world.

    No. Over a third of American choose to be married by the state without having to seek the permission of any religious authority. Their marriages are just as real, and just as much marriages as yours. It’s been like that for a hundred years before we were born, contrary to the ridiculous new pretense that marriage was primarily or exclusively a religious institution right up until ten or fifteen years ago when gay couples started fighting for the right to wed.

    No, it doesn’t work that way. A new law takes precedence over an old law, otherwise laws could never change. An Amendment takes precedence over a law, but a newer Amendment takes precedence over an older Amendment, or else booze would still be illegal and states would still have the power to restrict individual liberties. A legal precedent, which is a ruling about what does or does not violate a law or amendment, does bind the rulings that other courts can hand down, unless and until it is reversed by a higher court.

    Nah, I got Anakin Skywalker. That’s good, right? I didn’t see the last movie, but he rocked in the last two I saw.

    If I was the guy designing these quizzes, just to mess with people I would have rigged this one so that no matter what you answer, it always tells you that you’re Jar Jar Binks

    I voted for Obama because he is black, and I voted against Palin not because she is a woman, but because she is an idiot. No one wanted an idiot a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

    No. No I was not. Before you call somebody a hypocrite, you ought to check if they really said what you are about to claim that they said.

    Oh, I know that any Republican today who stood for the same policies as Ronald Reagan would be denounced as a RINO by a lot of the people on this site, but a lot of conservatives have shown a bizarre mental dichotomy, and are somehow able to praise Reagan while denouncing current Republicans who are actually more conservative than him without their minds completely schisming.

    Yeah, that is the sweater of a man who wants to sneak up on an unsuspecting sheep. If that’s not why he is wearing it, somebody should tell him that.

    Condoleezza Rice could never win because she was a lackey of the LIAR George W. Bush who took us to war in Iraq under false pretenses,

    If there were enough constitutional, libertarian, Tea Partiers to win an election, they wouldn’t need a third party, because they would be able to win the Republican primaries and pick a major party candidate. It is logically and mathematically impossible that people who are too conservative for the Republican Party could ever do better in the general election than in the primaries.

    A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another, and not in a ****ing bull**** way.

    She won’t be the oldest President. That will still be Ronald Reagan, who was about nine months older at the time of his first inauguration than she will be.If conservatives who claim that Reagan was a good President try to make age an issue in her case, they will only reinforce claims of sexism.

    That’s swell. Just keep spouting that stuff about her being an inhuman monster right up until the election, and we’ll see how many women voters you win over with it.

    A lateral move at best. At least when you are doing porn you know that your customers will get what they paid for if the guys behind the camera are at all competent.

    All of this has been true for at least 50 years, and I’ve explained it to them a dozen times, but all you have on your side is decades of legal precedent, while they once saw a sign on the wall of a luncheonette saying that the owner wanted to pretend that he could refuse to serve people, so they think that makes them right and you wrong.

    Go after them how? With a baseball bat? That would be very Christian. If you mean go after them legally, there would be no point in that because they are right and you are wrong.

    A cake is a cake. A Christian wedding cake is the same cake as a Jewish wedding cake or a secular wedding cake, and if you’re in the business of selling cakes, you should be willing to sell them to anybody who wants to buy them, no matter who they are.

    You can refuse to serve somebody on the basis of their behavior in your place of business. The baker would be absolutely within her rights to refuse service to any couple who had gay sex in her store.
