Jesus died for our sins and said we are all sinners. All their customers , according to faith , are sinners yet they wont serve gays ? Bible said to love thy neighbor but they missed that part as well.
Do they check hymens to ensure the woman is a virgin prior to marriage? Do they check to see if one had a previous marriage or ate shellfish? Those are sins as well. If no their whole argument is BS and they are just bigots with a bible, like the KKK
Who said they don't serve gays? It's the event that is the issue, not their sexual orientation. They cannot reasonably verify whether or not every event or use of their cake is going to fall in line with their beliefs, but if they are in a situation that they know they are contributing to an act that does go against their beliefs, they are perfectly within their rights to not participate.
Why do you have a problem with liberty?
Romans 13:9 For the commandments:
“You shall not commit adultery”
“You shall not kill”
“You shall not steal”
“You shall not bear false witness”
“You shall not covet”
and if there be any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, namely…
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself”
Love is following God’s commandments…not man’s whims.
While I agree that Christ set the bar very high by commanding men to love their neighbors as themselves, He also respects one's agency to choose (as does The Father). If these individuals are acting on their own consciences, who are you or I to disagree.
The bakers are not refusing to serve sinners, they believe by making a cake to celebrate a same sex union, which they believe to be against the will of God, they themselves would be committing sin. Thus they refused.
What an idiotic statement. You are another 'secularist' who tries to use the Holy Bible against true Christians and you just end up looking stupid. Plus you are crude, rude and socially degenerate to boot!
Are you talking about Christians? You will have to get rid of those old gay talking points then about the Old Testament and find something in the New Testament to b*tch about. Your intolerance and bigotry against Christians is noted your ignorance of that which you speak is stunning. Try reading the New Testament just once if you want to trash Christians on that basis.
If you run a gun shop and a customer comes in saying, ‘I want to buy a gun and go on a killing spree’ would you sell that person a gun? If that same person comes in wanting to buy a gun and says nothing about anything other than wanting to buy a gun, do you sell him that gun? That’s the difference.
If I were a Christian baker and a woman came in wanting me to bake her a cake and she lets it be known that she’s the village slut, I’d probably decline her as well. If that same village slut came in and said nothing about anything other than wanting the cake, I’d bake it for her. That’s the difference.
Once you know, you are compelled to act accordingly. If you don’t know you don’t know. For many gays, it’s really super important that everyone around them knows they’re gay. Particularly bakers and florists, because it’s gay rights sue season these days and many gays understand they’re playing the legal lottery with zero investment and zero risk.
That these lawsuits destroy lives and businesses is beside the point since secular culture has declared such people bigots, second only to being a 'clump of cells' that unborn children have been declared to be.

“When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men”
KJV Matthew 6:5, And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Soo foolish, Noone wants a race war but elderly scared white folk.
Keep up the cocky talk though , people talk tough behind keyboards. A black person were to walk by you would pee your pants. Most whites have an irrational fear of black people.
Irrational fear you say?? I think not, it called math but you prally do not know how to count.
If that's the case, it definitely wouldn't be in your favor to agitate and piss off the heaviest armed citizenry on the planet would it?
never-I used to call blacks in the ring the “N” word just to get them to do something stupid and run into my foot.
When they came to I’d be laughing at them.
Works on the street too.
They never catch on, slow those people.

If only there were another 4 year old with a gun this tragedy could’ve been prevented.
Define "crazy people". When you try, logic breaks down. It is a very subjective thing. Remember, it was those crazy people from the 1700's that made laws that said we could all have weapons as an inalienable right.
No I don't make up anything, I just have the ability to read. Right in the 2nd amendment it says " well regulated militia" and it is logical you don't want those with mental issues in a "militia" .
I don't have to define crap and this isn't the 1700's
Nevermind seems to aptly describe you (never - a - mind) as you make it up as you go along.
You do have to use the words as they were understood and used by the framers in the 1780s when the US Constitution was crafted. Oh yes, you do.
"Well regulated" had nothing to do with control or limitations by anyone or any body of government. In fact "regulate" meant to ensure, as in the Feds must regulate (ensure) interstate commerce, rather than control or throttle it as we use regulate now.
Same for the militia - their existence must be regulated (ensured) so as to be effective not controlled or organized.
And because you said, "I don’t have to define crap and this isn’t the 1700′s" I say that statement demonstrates your extreme ignorance and likely emotion-based thought processes.
Ok nevermind, would you call someone who is one gender, but believes they're another gender sane?
I am a well regulated militia of one. Screw you.
Sir, I should not have to explain in detail, but anyone who latches onto the “Well regulated Militia” aspect of the amendment, has been proven wrong by both historical, literary scholars and the SCOTUS, not to mention English teachers who are capable of understanding the proper use of a comma. So why do you persist on promoting an obviously false interpretation?
Also it identifies you as anti-gun therefore anti-Constitutional ideologue. which is not a good thing BTW. Just sayin’
so the SCOTUS ruled on it so it must be right huh? So then Obamacare is constitutional and you will stop harping about it since SCOTUS ruled on it right? SCOTUS also had dred scott
Also since I served this country and used a firearm in its defense I am furthest thing from anti gun , I am anti crazy people having them though
well,what DOES the Second say there?
"A well-regulated militia,being necessary to the security of a free state".
Hmm,it does NOT say that militias must be "well-regulated",it does NOT say arms must be "well-regulated",it does not restrict arms to militias. it really does not say anything,nor imply anything.
it says militias "are necessary to a free state",nothing more.
IOW,just ONE of many reasons why "the right of the People to keep AND BEAR arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."
Now that second part DOES say plenty,it makes specific prohibition -on government- to keep their hands off peoples arms.
it says that people have a RIGHT to own and to CARRY arms,....naturally,in a lawful manner.
So,WHY is this so hard for people to comprehend?
I blame it on a leftist education system that turns out cretins.
some problem it also said THE PEOPLE

I remember the GOP mocking and complaining about Obama in2008 being a celebrity and you don’t want a celebrity in the white house. Flash forward to 2016 , the GOP front runner is a reality tv star. You cant make this stuff up !!
All this talk of wanting a conservative yet in 08 Mccain, 12 Romney and 16 Trump? Have fun in November. Cant wait to see you all cry about the loss

Mississippi showing why it ranks lowest in nation in education once again. Celebrating traitors to the country and losers in a war. Only flag that matters is the surrender flag , that is the symbol of the South.
....and the symbol of the north is surrendering to islamic immigration and blacks fighting in the streets -- "great" cities like Baltimore, Detroit, etc....Long live the South.
Also the uneducated part of mississippi is the delta and parts of jackson. The majority of which is made up of blacks. They are probably not on board with the flag but have bigger problems like I don't know the senseless murders in their cities or eating government cheese.
Ironic coming from a semi-literate, uneducated moron who appears to only be qualified to stand on a corner.
Nevermind, it's easy to Monday morning quarterback. We weren't there in 1860 when the split began, the southern states were protesting the overreach of the federal government. Slavery was just one of the issues and needed to be abolished, but they truly believed in their cause of self determination and were willing to die for it. I don't think most people today have that same conviction, so right or wrong I respect their determination, just look at what the federal government imposes on us every day.

Yes but luckily most study history and know that in 64 the racists were welcomed with open arms by the GOP. Prior to that Strom Thurmand was a democrat.
Now the GOP are the party of the racist confederate flag crowd. You should study modern history , a lot has changed since 64. I know the KKK thing is all you guys have but I doubt many in KKK support gay marriage and immigration like the left. They are all yours now
Nice try. A total lie, but since when does that matter?
LBJ was the biggest racist around. His success in hijacking civil rights to keep blacks under control "for the next 100 years" is well documented. Ben's point is that he has been treated with respect by republicans, but utter disrespect by democrats. Owning confederate flags does not imply racism. Who are the racists? The race baiting black activist leaders? They speak in racist terms every day! In '64, conservatives were pushed out of the democratic party. Not because they were racist (Ok, some were, but some remained democrats too), but because their party abandoned them to become the party of race hustlers, union thugs, and big government. A party that needed black votes to survive and had an evil, ugly plan to secure them (keep them poorly educated and dependent while fanning the flames of hate.) It is party that needs Latino and muslim votes in the same way, and will treat them just as badly, while neglecting our nation's security to bring more in. Disguised as inclusion, it's all for power. Those conservative dems did, indeed, find acceptance in the Republican party, which has really never changed from the party that gave blacks their freedom. Democrat leadership has successfully mischaracterized the Republican brand. Not surprising when it controls 90% of the media.You have bought the lie. Now come over to the side of freedom and truth. Just like Carson did.

awesome. More GOP seats up for grabs in November and with larger turnout they will lose senate. Clinton will win and you guy just shot yourself he foot again
The only way that hillabeast will win is if Trump the chump gets the nomination for the GOP. It will be the same as casting a vote for hillabeast.

I think it is safe to assume you just add up fed , state, property, sales and SSI as percentages and add them up to get 60%? If so you are more lost than I thought. Anyone above 6 figures has many writes offs (Romney paid less than 15%) which means their effective tax rate ( what they actually paid) is less than 25%.
Safe to assume as well that you never made over 6 figures with that child like view of taxation.
[-7] February 22, 2016 at 4:32pm
I did factor in all. As I said, if you make six figures and pay 60% u are either a liar or your accountant is robbing you .
[-12] February 22, 2016 at 4:10pm
No one pays 60% in taxes. Average person making over 6 figures pays an effective rate of less than 25%. If he is paying 60% his accountant is as dumb as he thinks you are for believing this crap.
Hey Einstein, factor in ALL taxes; you're likely paying near the same percentage and don't even know it.
You are the liar. Someone making six figures probably is putting away 20 % off the top in an IRA or employer pension plan, and spending the rest. If his/her/their federal tax rate is 25 % they are probably cheating and would be terrified of an audit. But even if it's 25 %, then you have state income tax of 6 %, local income tax of 2 %, sales tax on your purchases of 7 %, property tax on your home, tax on your phone/internet bill, excise tax and various taxes from businesses that pass on taxes such as wholesale tax, as well as their projected income tax expense, on to the products you buy from them (you didn't think those businesses are going to pay those taxes when they can pass them on to you, did you). Anyway, by the time you add them all up, I'm sure they pay at least 60 %. Now, who are you going to pass your taxes on to?
You failed to factor in the need to buy influence so you can get a little old ladies house condemned.

2 wrongs don’t make a right. If he was wrong then the GOP is wrong now. Cant complain if you do the same thing
The democrats should make up their mind. It must not be wrong if only the democrats can do it. Just when republicans attempt to.
No no this isn't a case of two wrongs don't make a right.. this is a case of Libs wanting their way and LIBs wanting their way in what is called situational politics. We can and we SHOULD demand the process to be followed.. that is the president can nominate and the Senate can NOT confirm period. That is the process. So go ahead Mr. Prez.. nominate away.. it will not happen until after you are gone from office once and for all...
Funny I said "two wrongs don't make a right" the other day and got down voted too. Consistency is of little concern around here.

Isnt this the guy that grew up on welfare, ate due to food stamps and could see due to getting glasses from the government? Lets not start on how he paid for his ivy league education with his mother working at a diner.
Sure he is against welfare, now. But we he needed it he gobbled it up like government cheese
In dingle Barry days you would be labeled a base racist. Carson had no communist rabbis to guide him through medical school like dingle Barry.
you failed to note that he didn't stay there...he didn't avoid self improvement to keep his benefits
In his case the government did what it's supposed to do. Do you see him sitting on the couch waiting on his welfare check and EBT card? No, he came out of poverty because he worked to do it. Why is that so hard to understand?
What a heartless thing to say. Being poor does not make you less smart or able. I hope that some day you too will have to go begging and I hope you come begging at my door.
