I find it quite telling that your response begins with a gratuitous slander of the Catholics; the oldest form of Christianity who’s Church was founded by the Apostle Peter as instructed by Christ himself. Catholicism not only has the greatest number of adherents, it is the compiler of the Bible. Not being satisfied with disparaging a 2,000 year old religion followed by more than 1.2 billion people, you then proceed to exalt your own nouveau sect and pat yourself on the back for your alleged piety.
Yes, your version of Christianity is very interesting indeed.

The correct response would be, “That’s not true. I couldn’t possibly care less that you’re qu33r. I don’t like you because you’re an @sshole.”

jd – Irish is a nationality, not a race. Bigotry knows no bounds, racists don’t hold a monopoly on it.
@jasper – I don’t think jd2066 is on the left even though he made it about race when it’s not about race. So much for your theory.

Well congratulations are in order KAITARA. YOU ARE THE FIRST GAY PERSON I have ever encountered to TO ADMIT THAT YOU ACTUALLY MADE A CHOICE TO BE GAY. Every other homosexual I have known has insisted that they were born that way and never had any choice in the matter.
btw = ‘Irish’ is not a race, it’s a nationality and people ‘choose’ which country they want to live in.

I always believed that Churches should lose their tax exempt status. Have you seen the churches dripping in gold, jewel encrusted thrones and the people living in abject poverty? All the time the preacher telling you the “church needs money” and you need to give more.
Jesus stated when asked, “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and render unto God what is God’s”
Sawdy, you are referring to the catholic religion, which has nothing to do with Christianity. My church met in a barn for years before we could build our own building, which looks like a barn. We have nothing on the walls, a concrete floor, and a plywood platform for the pastor to be on so the people in the back can see when he speaks. It is about God and following Him, not a building with gold, silver, carpet, and fancy offices. Christians know this.
We did not even want to build a building, but our county told us it was illegal (on private property) to meet privately to worship.
When we needed more money to build our building the pastor and elders took action... and doubled the amount we were giving to missions, to 25% of everything that came in. In the world's eyes that does not make any sense at all, since we already needed more money for the building. But God does finances differently than the world.
The money to finish our building showed up in the form of checks for huge sums of money from people who no one in the church had ever seen and had never stepped foot in our barn. THAT is a God thing, commonly referred to as a miracle.
God does not need money or a fancy church buildings.
Bold as The Lion of Judah
You quote a very well known verse out of the Bible. Who asked the question of Jesus that brought this insightful reply? A temple official who wanted to trap Jesus. In those days, the temple WAS the government as much as the Jewish tetrarchs or Roman governors. Much focus is paid to the "Render unto Caesar.." part of the quote; usually by those against the Church. More focus should be paid to the latter part of the response "and render unto God what is God's" So what is owed to God? Everything! Your life, your wealth, your talents/actions, your thoughts. So, give God the first fruits (meaning the best of everything you have), then you can give to "Caesar" from what is left.

No, no , no. You missed it. Thomas comments included a remark about Americans being thrown in to internment camps. G.T. wand his family were among those people who were taken from their homes and shipped off to be confined because of their race. So I guess your point is that Japanese now identifies as black.
Nope, your supposition and guess is wrong. My comment was nothing more than opinion of the activist with no inference to his family history. My family history is littered also, but it is history. Appreciate your comment and point, but it does not change my opinion. Peace!

July 10th is Gay Blood Drive Day and has been for the last 4 years.
Something else we didn’t see today is honesty and an informed remark from you.
Sure, there is a day that’s called “Gay Blood Drive,” but gay and bi men are still not allowed to donate. They bring a friend to donate for them. Nice jab on honesty and informed remarks, tho.
 July 3, 2015 at 9:41am
It’s totally racist to infer that white men are clowns.
July 3, 2015 at 9:39am
Takei didn’t say Thomas was a ‘white man donning black face’ as so many here contend. What he sad was that Thomas was a CLOWN donning black face. Bigoted? Maybe. Racist? Not unless clowns are now a race.
Either way, it’s obvious from the comments that being gay is far worse than anything Thomas has ever said or done. Just ask Anita Hill.
Stop making excuses and enabling Mr. Sulu, and stop bringing up that lying Anita Hill.
 July 3, 2015 at 9:30am
NOPE. They should be held to exactly the same standards, This politically correct BS has got to end.

You want to work according to your beliefs? Go work for your church or open a ‘your religion only’ business ( You are fully aware of Christian Book shops and Kosher Deli’s which operate under those tenets).. You want to work as a public official, your salary paid by the public to serve the public? Check your personal beliefs at the door and pick them up on the way out.
How much more non-violent can you get than MOVE ON, FIND ANOTHER BUSINESS THAT CAN FILL YOUR NEEDS?

I wonder if he had to take down the, “Irish need not apply” sign or if he had to move the “Blacks use rear entrance” sign on order to make room to put this new gem up.
Stop making it about race. Also, do you make it a habit of announcing your sexual orientation when entering a building? Normal people don't.
What a tired, and completely wrong argument. Race and sexual preference are not the same. You cannot help what race you are, unless you are Rachel Dolezal, and being gay is a lifestyle choice and preference.

Did you think that one up all by yourself? What a clever little man you must be!

There was a lot of truth to his post: I saw a picture of his wife and he DID marry a dog. But then again, I guess one should expect a little b itch to be attracted to dogs.
July 3, 2015 at 1:03am
I am so sick of EVERYONE being so friggin’ offended all the time!
They won’t make you a cake? Fine! Move on, find another baker who will!
You won’t make a cake because your religion doesn’t approve of who they are? T.S.! You’re a for-profit bakery licensed by the state, NOT a church. Get over it or get out of the business of serving the public!
You’re a public employee who refuses to do your job? Don’t let the door hit you in your @ss on the way out!
Yes let's just give up the right to act non-violently according to our conscience and beliefs. Then everything will be all better.
And does the same hold true for Walmart not making a Confederate flag cake? Are corporations held to a different standard of laws?

Pure evil is upon us. Satan is surely present in both the barbaric acts of these Muslim savages as well as here in the comments of some “Christians” who make light of these atrocities and take this as an opportunity to mock and ridicule homosexuals. The commenters who openly take joy and make light of these murders are just as filthy and devoid of any morals, civility or Christianity as those who perpetrated those vile acts.
What do you minions of Satan do for enjoyment when you’re bored? Set fire to kittens, lynch puppies or do you just pull the wings off of flies?
'What do you minions of satan do for enjoyment when you’re bored?'
You're as evil and filthy as they come, why don't you tell us...

Leave to where? He’s an American: born here to parents who immigrated to this country legally. Was thrown into an internment camp along with his family simply because of their ancestry. Watched is family’s home was taken away from them and their lives and livelihood destroyed by the government NOT for anything they did but persecuted for how they looked and where their ancestors were born.
You may not like him nor what he has to say but, I contend he has very valid and unique life experience which makes him more qualified to address Thomas’ comments than either you or I do.
 July 3, 2015 at 12:15am
If that Muslim business regularly advertise and will sell pork products to anyone but you? Absolutely!

Did you go out for coffee in the middle of reading what I wrote? Which part of,
“Don’t get me wrong, some non-religious @sshole will attempt this stunt but the result will be an abject failure just like the abortion debacle.” didn’t you understand?
July 2, 2015 at 2:06pm
“so millions of babies are not being killed ?”
Absolutely! And I think it’s horrible however, that has nothing to do with my statement.
Have Churches been paying for those abortions? The answer is NO.
Have lawsuits been filed and has the government tried to force Churches to go against their core beliefs to finance such murders? Yes.
Were they successful in this endeavor? The answer is a resounding NO.
As I said, IF anyone tries to force a religion to violate their core beliefs ( and some anti-religious fool WILL try) they will fail just as they have failed with their attempt to coerce churches to pay for murder on demand.
