    You can hate Christians and still love the liberties and systems of government they devised. It doesn’t make sense in historical context, but it is workable in a modern context because those Christians already laid down the groundwork to allow folks to take advantage of their culture while hating them.

    That’s a nice try, but it shows your lack of understanding of “hypocrisy.”

    That article reports a request that religious, not secular, but religious institutions be allowed to discriminate in hiring those who match the religious teachings of that organization. This has routinely been granted as it’s silly to force a church to hire an Imam or a mosque to hire a Rabbi. No one is saying an LGBT organization has to hire Christians who oppose that lifestyle, therefore asking for Christian organizations to not be forced to hire LGBT is not hypocrisy.

    Also, the article is not saying that Christians who run secular business should be allowed to fire an employee if they discover he/she is a homosexual, unlike the LGBT crowd that immediately calls for the firing of anyone who has any connection at all with a organization or piece of legislation they don’t like.

    And no, I’m not doing your research for you. Show hypocrisy or don’t, I don’t really care other than to point out a lot of people love to throw out the term “hypocrite” without an evidence they even know what it means, let alone that it applies.

    Let me get this straight – a mother is concerned about the nutritional value of the ice cream sandwich? It is all sugar. It doesn’t have any. Next question, please.

    I am not aware of any influential Christian movement calling for homosexuals to lose their jobs or otherwise deny them employment. I am aware of several influential LGBT organizations saying Christians should lose theirs, but I have not seen it from the other way, yet. Can you show me and defend your hypocrisy claim?

    Well, I think employers have rights as well. If your speech has a negative impact on their business, it is natural for them to want to part ways with you. They should retain that right.

    However, religion, rightly or wrongly, is defended by law. It is illegal in most, if not all, places in the US to fire someone for their religious beliefs in most circumstances. Pretty much, only religious organizations can discriminate based on religion.

    The question at hand is if this person was punished for being a Christian or punished for exercising speech that reflected poorly on his employer. If the former, he wins his suit, if the latter, he loses.

    Either way, as a private citizen who cherishes free speech and religion, I would stop doing business with Shaw Media because they clearly do not cherish them. I would not request the government force them to.

    What comment sections have you been reading? I doubt any as someone probably just told you to come here and post that as if it were relevant and as if you’d know any better, yourself.

    Hypocrites are the worst at pointing out hypocrisy. They simply tend to believe everyone else is one, too, and act accordingly.

    I don’t get your meaning, Nilssy. The Palestinians are already in the political minority in Israel. They’d have to defeat Israel and install their apartheid government before it could be dismantled as one was in South Africa.

    Nilsson, what’s it like when your world view forces you to either tell ridiculously blatant lies or abandon it? I’ve always wondered if such people go through life laughing at themselves or are just angry all the time.

    I can’t be fired for a religious opinion in this country. I don’t really agree with that law, but a law it is. If it’s going to be used for false-rights issues, it most certainly should be used for issues when real rights are violated.

    Irony? Did he fire someone for expressing personal opinions on social media outside of work? Has he advocate for homosexuals to lose employment because they are homosexuals? That’s not in the story, so you must have some extra knowledge of the situation. Or you don’t know what irony is.

    Yes, well, too bad the arabs didn’t understand the power of their inbred voting block gave them back then. They could have prevented it. Now they must resort to the tactics of pigs, like the pigs they are.

    One can be unhappy with one’s own appearance, yet still want to be accepted in public as a human being. Your statement trivializes the struggle many over-weight people have with themselves. Sure, some of them don’t give a damn or are happy with their size. That’s not the case of most people who struggle to break bad habits, whatever those habits might be.

    That said, it’s worth noting that the fatty in this story isn’t the one who complained. Fat people know they are fat. Well adjusted ones expect some negative social interaction from it and deal with it. It’s really no different than anyone else with a condition or attribute that makes them different from ideal or whatever the heck “normal” is..

    What’s a statist to do when he goes against the state he worships?

    Isn’t sad and laughable that people out their support Hamas because the Israelis sometimes kill children in their assaults? What does Hamas do to Israeli children on purpose? And just who is using the children as human shields?

    I thought that was just a beverage.

    “Hamas is like the tiny ant…”

    Let’s see… invading a place they don’t own and didn’t build and their presence weakens and destroys it. Yep, that does sound like Hamas.

    Catholic is just an old word that’s a synonym for “unity” implying that, regardless of the divisions man has made in God’s church, this truly only one church – and that is the body of true believers, regardless of denominational affiliation.

    Catholics are part of the “mainsteam” Christian set of denominations.

    Those who were around during the hatch recommend people “keep your mouth shut and kind of cover your nose”

    Was that for the mayflies or was that person giving advice for an upcoming visit to Congress?

    Israel wants peace. Hamas wants Israel to cease to be. If we truly have evolved as a society, if we truly want civility and discourse and negotiation and liberty (or at least recognized rights), there is only one side of this conflict to support.

    “If I was in a club, and I found out that there had been generations of people abusing children, and then that club was covering that up, I would quit the club.”

    You’ve just describe humanity in general better than any specific sub-section (except, perhaps NAMBLA). Feel free to resign.
