I go to Newspring Church at the Greenville, SC Campus. I had given up hope about going to church and finding a place where I fit in until someone invited me to Newspring. I could go on and on, but long story short I have found my home at Newspring and with Pastor P. I’m glad Billy was fair and didn’t turn this into some uninformed smear piece. Thank you. God Bless

THANK YOU! I thought I was the only freaking person who put two and two together on this one.

I wonder if Kicking a Grandma is a Godly act… Just a thought.

Well spoken East

Harsh much? If everyone had to be excommunicated for a differing viewpoint or sin they committed then everyone would be excommunicated from their respective churches. We are all sinners liquidlou.

I think that Reagan would fall along the lines that less government intrusion into marriage is better than more intrusion. It seems logical to me to think that government imposing laws restricting marriage to only heterosexual consenting adults is the same as government imposing laws unrestricting marriage to any consenting adults heterosexual or otherwise. Its not a question of whether you support same sex marriage or not. Its a question of hypocrisy underlying our political views. It seems we only want government involved when it supports our views.

And the country didn’t immediately explode? Hmm, interesting. Apparently the world doesn’t end when countries legalize gay marriage…
AIDS doesn't kill in one day either. so what's your worthless point?
New Zealand is going to explode? Only their economy.
their medical and legal economy, maybe. The Doctors who see for AIds and the lawyers who handle divorce should make quite a killing.
does this story smell fishy to you?

no, gary, I am not gay and I am already happily married. I don’t expect him to abandon any of his views, I just tend to disagree with him on some of his socially conservative views. simple as that.

While I disagree with the whole suing aspect of this story, and I agree that business owners should be allowed to serve, hire, and fire who they choose, unfortunately I can’t disagree with the fact that it seems this couple has a case. If the laws were expanded in 2006, she seems to be in violation of that expanded law unfortunately. Maybe this will serve to be a sobering story about how PC things can get if you let them…
These people were 10 year customers. She didn't refuse them services then. Them being gay didn't matter. It was the wedding sacrement that she couldn't - because of her religion - cater to.
There is nothing in the Bible that says not to make a cake for gay people or give flowers for a wedding.
It's pure dogma.

I used to like Rick, but he takes too hard of a stance on these social issues for me. Sucks they won’t let him speak, but when you are hard line enough to think that birth control and contraception should be outlawed amongst other things like gay marriage, i’m not surprised.
So are you Gay and want to get married? Why else would you find him needing to abandon a belief that untill 5 years ago was universally accepted?
no, gary, I am not gay and I am already happily married. I don't expect him to abandon any of his views, I just tend to disagree with him on some of his socially conservative views. simple as that.
He does not want to outlaw contraception. It's a personal choice for him. Try getting your facts right rather than making extreme statements while making a point.
I have a "hard line view" against 4 + 4 = 7. I must be an extremist.

Of course I understand the importance of marriage and the family unit. But allowing two gay or lesbian consenting adults the right to marry won’t change that importance. Its not like straight people will stop getting married and will cease to exist and the United States will just become one massive gay love fest. Sheesh!
I don’t even know why i’m arguing this anymore. Its going to happen anyways. so you guys can keep throwing a hissy fit, but once it happens and you wake up the next day and the sun is still shining and the birds are chirping you will realize that its not as big of a deal as you thought.

I know the dang S & G story you goof. And your gay marriage rape story is ridiculous. So no heterosexual person has ever raped or violated their own child/children? Please.

The slippery slope argument is a straw man argument. No one is arguing about polygamy or pedophilia. All we are arguing about is two consenting adults tying the knot. And seriously, you don’t think that heterosexuals aren’t already sometimes getting married just for the sake of tax breaks? That wouldn’t just magically start happening, it already happens. Once gays and lesbians have the right to marry (and trust me it will happen), I will still raise my children the exact same way as I would if gays and lesbians weren’t allowed to get married. It just isn’t that big of a deal people!

@TexasGranny, you can’t talk out of both sides of your mouth. If you don’t have a problem with gay people, and you believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, then what’s the issue? Trust me, the United States won’t implode into darkness if gay people can get married. Just like the world didn’t implode when women got the right to vote, black people got the right to vote, and white people and black people were allowed to get married. Life moves along.
April 9, 2013 at 10:14am
Whoa @Deacon slow it down haha! Wowzers those are pretty bold predictions. So new STD’s, gangs of gay rapist murderers, etc. will all come about just because gays and lesbians will be allowed to get married? Good luck with that one haha.

As a 27 year old conservative and libertarian, I just want to thank every one of you guys for wrecking the conservative name for my generation and younger. Its hard enough already having to explain conservatism to my liberal know-nothing friends because of how poorly you guys handled the title and you continue to make it worse. Forget supporting gay marriage being suicidal for the republican party. You guys are doing a hell of a job doing it all by yourselves.
