    Stude, please tell me all of the easily provable flaws and inaccuracies in the Bible.

    It makes me sad to be apart of this “community” sometimes.

    Since when is it unlawful to ask questions? Why is it unlawful to peacefully, which this guy was, try to find out why he was being arrested? Why would that many cops worry about a guy selling loose cigarettes?

    When did a private business become a public right? Legally speaking a business owned and operated by its private owner/s and not incorporated is looked at by the federal and state governments as one in the same as the owner/s themselves. If the government looks at me and my business as the same entity then does it not have the same rights I do?

    Think Twice,
    1. You said a for profit business does not have the right to the protections of the 1st Admendment. Explain how a “private” business does not have those rights when the govenment by its own rules looks at that business as one in the same as it’s owners.
    2. You said that Idaho looks as heterosexual and homosexual marriage as the same but yet there is a specific court ruling that does not say that they are the same but says they will be treated the same. It looks as if the court looks at them as two different things too. If so, then services for one can and are different than services for the other and therefore one can offer only one of those services.
    3. You said wrongly, see #2, that since they were the same in the eyes of the court and there was no difference between them legally, then no one can offer services for or of one without the other. Well since your case is based on the legal interpretation of the two items, hetero and homosexual marriage in this case, then it would stand to reason that any and all other items would need to be defined by the courts to have the same clarification. And since there is no such law to define what is and is not a deli meat or that there are different deli meats then I should be able to demand that Jews and Muslims serve me what I feel is a right. Their religious beliefs have to stop when it infringes on me.

    Think Twice,
    I’m sorry but you can’t have it both ways. You say there is no legal difference between heterosexual marriage and homosexual marriage according to state law. First I disagree. If there wasn’t then there would be no court case that specifies homosexual marriage. Secondly, showme the state law that differentiates between pork and beef.
    It seems silly for me to ask for such a law but since your new argument hinges on a legal difference between two things before one can be denied then without said legal ruling then a Jewish or Muslim business refusing me a pork product infringes on my rights.
    Furthermore, food is more important than a tax status or binding personal contract so I would say that I would have more of an argument than this couple.
    Lastly, I wonder if this is a private business or a incorporated one? If it is private it is taxed as if it is one with the owner/s. If that is the case then the US gov looks at this business as the individuals who own it so it should be covered by the 1st. If it is incorporated in any form then it is taxed as it’s own entity. Well, if it is it’s own entity according to the US gov then it has it’s own 1st rights .
    Either way they should be protected.

    I would like you to point to the state law that differentiates between the two sandwiches. If their is no state law then a sandwich is a sandwich.
    Furthermore, your argument was that a for profit business cannot be protected under the 1st amendment because once it is for profit it is in the public domain. Well, a deli is for profit and public under your original argument.
    The bottom line is that if one business is not protected from religious persecution then no business is safe.

    These pastors do not offer the service/product that this couple wants. Same sex weddings are the same as heterosexual weddings as much as a roast beef sandwich is the same as a ham sandwich. They have different ingredients but all else is the same. So under your argument I could sue a Jewish deli for not offering a service to me that they do not offer for religious reasons.

  • [21] October 20, 2014 at 10:59am

    No it’s the same thing. This chapel does not offer same sex weddings. It’s a product just like food is.
    Here’s another question. Should a black Jewish caterer be made to cater a KKK event?

  • [115] October 20, 2014 at 10:24am

    Think Twice,
    Honest question. Do you think a Jewish or Muslim deli should be forced to serve ham?
    After all, eating ham is not illegal and is mentioned in the Constitution as many times as marriage is and since the deli in question is run on religious beliefs for profit they have to abandon their protection under the 1st Amendment.

    Homes question here. Do you think a Jewish or Muslim run deli should be forced to serve ham?

    And of course Savage knows. And no one else does so that’s why it hasn’t hit any other media.

    I’m disappointed that Glenn did not take a bite out of a chicken leg at the end of his response.

    Everything Sars said and wasn’t it Obama that said Ebola would not come to America?

    My wife is 4’10″. This has happened more times than we would like. I won’t say that she always handles it perfectly but she has never caused a scene. Most of the time she looks at the kidde menu and will order off of it. A lot of the time a kids steak is just the same as a regular one just cheaper.

    No, it means they believe it to be true. Same here, the apostles believed Christ was the Son of God. If they knew he wasn’t then you would be hard pressed to find 11 who claimed to know someone who did not exist to die a torturous death for that lie.

    DoOrDie,
    He did gun it. He gunned it to force the car left. These Sprint cars have larger wheels on the right side of the car than on the left. This causes the car to want to turn left at all times. Most of the steering is done in the way of speeding up or slowing down. When Tony gunned it, it was to get the car to quickly turn left away from the guy on the track. This is proper procedure. The only one who did anything wrong was the guy who got out of his car during a race on a low lit dirt track.

    They are called fascist.

    @Wild,
    What happens if you are wrongly suspected of a crime. Would you stand by the cops if they kicked your skull in?
