We have to change this way to approach. I would say “Gays welcome…expect to hear the gospel.” If I were the baker or photographer for weddings, I would indeed meet with the couple, and share the gospel of their sin before we discussed price. After all, the Supreme Court says we can still do this….
I think they would leave before any business would be done, as I can go on for DAYS about the gospel of Jesus and the sin of the flesh…..
EXCELLENT answer! We aren't called to be like other Christians; we are called to be like Christ!
While we disagree with people's choices...and their lifestyle choices; this does not mean we don't love them.
Jesus' only two commands:
1. Love God
2. Love your neighbor (which to me) means love everyone simply because God made everyone in His own image.
What is so hard about this...?
You get 5 Stars for that.
Kill them with kindness.
While I disagree with your opinion I do not see any fault with this within the law. You have a freedom of speech and (based on local and federal laws regarding discrimination) a customer has a right to be served. While posting a sign that says "Whites only" or "Straights only" is hateful, action on (at least the former) is illegal. However, posting a sign that says "I hate blacks" or "I hate gays" again is hateful, but not illegal and if you do business as usual, you are not violating any laws.
I like that Tea!
Pretty good idea. I like that overall idea of 'engagement'.
And such an approach admittedly used by some who sought marriage equality. Their efforts to gain marriage equality for gays centered around engaging those with a 'negative' view of such - with mainly those who could be 'influencers' or decision-makers on the matter.
'Engage before marriage (equality)' - is a phrase someone used to describe their efforts.
They felt - and I feel the same way - that if they engaged in a respectful conversation with those who opposed marriage equality... They would be able to 'turn' many of them.
And it seems to have worked - I would say.
It is an approach I believe in.
It is why I often ask folks if they have ever actually 'engaged' in a detailed discussion with a homosexual - or committed, loving, same-sex couple.
Those who oppose such equality might not change their mind on that particular matter BUT... My guess is they wouldn't be calling them the 'Gaystopo' or saying they have some sort of nefarious 'gay agenda'.
They - and I and MANY others - just want to see EQUALITY - in the eyes of our govt.
Don't want to 'support' gay marriage? Fine. Just do NOT deny the govt-sanctioned 'privilege' AND associated 'privileges' of such to others.
Guess what teammommy
I can go on for DAYS too.
Care to engage?
And curious teammommy...
Would you seek to engage ALL sinners that came to buy from you?
And you do realize we ALL are sinners - right? So your answer SHOULD be... Yes.
“Gays welcome…expect to hear the gospel.”
That actually seems like a pretty good solution. Your building, your views to express as long as you're not holding them captive or refusing to serve the public.
That is actually brilliant. Nice work, I disagree with it but it's a perfectly acceptable solution.
I don't know why this is even an issue. Planet Fitness kicks people out of their place of business for random reasons based on their belief systems. Why can't everybody else?
He owns a hardware store, so he can even give examples! "See how nicely the nut and the bolt fit together? Now you try with two bolts"
I wonder if you'll be doing the same to the Jews...
If we only loved with the same level of passion and zeal as we do "standing up" for or against issues.
Nothing wrong with your idea. However how will you know? Does ole Jeff there have a gayometer installed at the front door or can he just look into their eyes and tell?
was someone spending too much time in the caulk aisle or something?
i ike that response ""Expect to hear the Gospel
tea - They have rejected the Gospel, everyone on this hemisphere has had the opportunity to seek the Gospel, they have either rejected it or embraced the Character of +Jesus God+ which can not be separated, we as Believers should know what time it is & be praying to +God in Jesus name the Holy Spirit+ readies our mind & our families mind for the second coming of +Jesus God+, & stop letting these bullies sow doubt/calling us names in our mind, pray/ask our minds to be strengthened according to The Bible/Scriptures not fashioned by the worlds views.
So you would preach to every one of your customers? Do you only want to work for Christians?
Strong work mommy! The level of "gospel" that gets shoved up your nostrils is directly related to the level of "thong" that gets shoved up mine.....that goes for anybody, I don't care who ya love. Respect each other and the right to a viewpoint...like we used to.
THIS IS NOT RIGHT. YOU CANNOT REFUSE TO SERVICE GAY PEOPLE. COME ON PEOPLE, GET REAL. But...the following is allowed...
Custom Cake for Wedding - $45.00
Rainbow Cake for Wedding - $16,000.00
Normal Hammer - $8.50
Special Use Hammer - $3950.75
Teammommy.... your answer....awesome and priceless.
Problem is the majority of the supreme court is against christ. That sums things up for their future rulings on Christianity.
Sounds like you've had a lot of practice "boning up" on your technique . Maybe you should just save up some of your steamiest firsthand accounts and send them into Playgirl
Who cares what the rogue supreme court says; it's null and void. We must obey God rather than men, and so we will...
I would just raise the price of my cakes buy oh a thousand %. That should end the issue. Gota serve them, The court didn't sat we had to be cheep. Oink
Teammommy, you have nailed it!!!
Whether it’s a bakery or a photographer or . . . what a wonderful concept! Who knows. Some may listen and accept Christ. After all, Paul went into the lion’s den to preach. Let the gays come into the lion’s den to hear the Word!
I have to be honest with you guys. I have no evidence for my claim - this is just something that I've observed. There is a very low percentage of gay people out there who want to take our religious liberty. However, most people screaming loudly are straight people desperate to show everyone how tolerant and open minded they are.
Heh… expect to hear the gospel?
Want to bet how long it takes me to get asked to leave when they don’t like what I have in response? I'd be perfectly happy to pretend I'm gay just so they'd start too.
It won't end well for them.
Amen Sister (in Christ Jesus) !!

My Christian child is at a southern college and took a Christianity class. Instead of sticking to the theme, the professor went off rubric and promoted gay marriage and gay sex. In his final thesis my child wrote about Sodom and Gomorrah, realizing the risks but feeling had to take a stand for his Lord. The prof failed our child for the WHOLE COURSE! We went to the college and submitted all the sick pro-gay articles my child was forced to read. The prof in now under investigation for going off his semester outline! He could be FIRED soon! The college is not happy!!! Thank you God!
1) She has already made herself to be a freak with going public
2) I know young boys and they are going to want to look at her vagina when she steps in the bathroom
3) She aint had no kind of abuse like she’s about to get trying to pee at a urinal and
4) the school should require every child with this disorder to get mental help before they force the 99% of school children to work around their illness.

why don’t we all call Dean of Student Affairs Mr Johnathan Ambrose at 601-925-3000? That is the number. They wouldn’t give out his email address…. But everyone that reads this must speak out. Mr Ambrose did not mind while this marine was fighting for his freedom while they were hiring Muslims….so he shouldn’t mind our calls….
BTW Mr Ambrose aint seen crazy till he comes up against a marine supporter lol
Yes, because fighting for freedom means we need to send our children overseas to a place most Americans cannot find on a map in order to kill people in search of weapons that never existed. That makes perfect sense. Oorah for freedom!
May 23, 2015 at 9:11am
excellent idea, wish we had thought of that. But we knew God would sustain him and now the professor is in trouble for this! God takes care of his kids!
 May 23, 2015 at 9:10am
Not brushing over, just kept to a minimum words…Lot offered his daughters in order to defend the angels. Lot knew they were sent from God to defend him, and if anything were to happen to the angels then his whole family (which were a huge number) would be destroyed.
Im not making it up, please read Genesis. You may just learn something… also see Matthew Mark and Luke….that will teach you compassion and love for fellow man, which you could obviously use to treat people and lose some of that hate.

So my child came home last week with a F in his Christianity class at college. It was an elective on the history of Christianity. The F came from constantly butting heads with his liberal teacher all year who said “Forget everything you learned in Sunday School, Gay marriage is cool”, and his final paper that game him a low score due to it quoting Genesis, where the men in Gommorrah surrounded Lots house wanting the male angels to come out so they could rape them, (Lot offered his daughters but the men refused). The professor said that wasn’t true they were gay it was a mistake in translation. SO he punished my child with a F. I am proud of my kid for standing up even if he did fail the course. Most kids went along just to pass the class.
Yep. Mine starts college in the fall, and I just had to tell him not to take the honors seminar on evolution 1st semester unless he's willing to have a target on his back for the next 4 years. He's a science major so it's going to come up soon enough without that.
I just love how you brush over the fact that this guy basiclly offered his daughters to a rape mob.
And I'm willing to bet there's another side to the story if you didn't make it up completely.
 May 15, 2015 at 8:01pm
does no one take offense that the dad is cursing his son using the f word?? Really? maybe thats why the child is struggling…trashy parents
I agree. Nobody should speak to their kids this way. Dad will be wondering why his son speaks to him like this one day.
The whole display is offensive. Cant see how anyone would see this idiots actions as anything but.

Honey that was me. I hated the blah blah “sameness” of Christian music. Then our family was overloaded with strife all at one time and in stead of getting mad at God, I ran to him for help, Christian music included. SO many songs seemed to speak to me, not I have a whole catalog of them on my iPod. I am in awe of Matthew West songs, the writing just blows me away.
Thank you George Bush for having the chance to stop this mass exodus from Mexico, yet ignored it. Heck, GW, you even pushed to have them legalized. You have allowed the course of this country to change to a multilingual place where we don’t have a conversation with each other because we CANT have a conversation! We are losing what it means to be American every day. Base ball and apple pie? Ha Now its Soccer and tacos. The American dream has changed from working hard and leave it to your kids, to jump the border, riot for citizenship, then retire early on welfare.
SO what about those teachers that preach the opposing politics, that promote Islam and promote abortions? Should those teachers be fired as well? What about that teacher that encouraged the students to vote for obama and told the kids if they didn’t they were racists? Should she have been fired? Or the one that told the kids if their parents voted for GW Bush they were horrible people? She wasn’t fired… so why should this one? Answer please
If you can produce one documented and verified source showing teacher promoting abortions or saying that, then yes they should be fired. Please publish the accounts of the students in those classes, where and when.

I dont understand the NAACP involvement….did I miss any racial remarks? Or are they carrying the water for the POTUS cause he is half black?
 April 25, 2015 at 12:14am
I feel so sorry for him. He is just so lost. God made him a man and Satan tells him God messed up and made a mistake. Tells him he’s a freak. God doesn’t make errors, He makes masterpieces.

OK so help me understand…You want ‘affordable childcare’ …..you raise pay for women, say…women that work in childcare…then thats great they get more money, but then it makes childcare less affordable…so what is it Hill? Seems you can’t have both right?

Did you know there are just as many scientist that say climate change is a hoax? Its almost like a religion. Is Mohammed real or made up? Some say he was true prophet and God wants everyone killed…some say its a made up fantasy.
There is as much proof against climate change (since no one bought in to global warming y’all had to change its name) as there is for it. Yet the USA wants to pour money into this unproven cause….

Ha I IMMEDIATELY knew this post was from a liberal ….his first words were name calling. Can always tell a liberal as they always result to name calling and insults, as they have no real argument.
Blackspeak, being black, Im sure you’ve been called a “name” before. Did you like that? If not, then think this you are lowering yourself to those you hate for calling you names.
You’re correct… I apologize… Calling a reprobate like Beck, “Baby Huey”, is an insult to Baby Huey…
Teamom,he's a cracker.
Teammom, foxmodelb, is name calling………………………………………..

Offered to give an acquantiance a baby shower cause she had few friends. I planned an afternoon of tea sandwiches and games for 20, mostly co-workers.
The mom had another friend who wanted to ‘help me’ with this. She was pretty wealthy and took over this show. She also drafted a friend of hers to help. Next thing I know, she is ordering gold invitations, professional caterers, wine bar, butlers and french maids, and had a guest list of 125. The day of the shower she was looking for live storks for the front yard!
The day after this EVENT, I received a bill for my 1/3 of this shower. almost $1500! But she told me she was giving me a break, cause she was paying for the open bar. How nice.
PS: Months later the mom asked me to give her sister a shower. I learned my lesson and refused, but offered to provide cake. The mom told me to send enough cakes to feed 40 (the attendance was 20), so they could save the left over
cake for the family shower they were having later.
I sent enough for 15….haha
