    If you think Lifeway polls a representative population sample, you are certainly delusional.

    E Pluribus Unum was first, E pluribus unum was considered motto until 1956 when Congress passed House Joint Resolution 396 adopting “In God We Trust” as the official motto. The Star Spangled banner was not even the national anthem until 1931. And we could use a new one too!

    I will be 62 in 3 days, I have never said the Pledge. I faked it in elementary school and as an adult I just avoid any situation where they do it. I don’t bow my head when you pray either. My father, his father and my great-grandfather were all Freethinkers, an early designation for atheists and my father was greatly offended by this as they came from Sweden to avoid State Churches. Under God offends me every time I hear it mentioned, it would have offend Thom Jefferson for sure and the reason behind it is just silly away

    First of all wait staff in NYC and Chicago were unionized in the 1940-50s, unions created the middle class and fast-food jobs are no loner entry level after school jobs for 17 year olds. The average age of a fast food worker is 27. In Australia, where their dollar is worth right about the same as ours, the minimum wage is $15.95 and a Big Mac costs just about the same as it does in Cleveland.

    Fact is a major minimum wage increase would be a giant stimulus to the economy and the boost we need.

    You suffer from sever delusions, “any business has the right to deny service to anyone” – That is a complete myth and you must have missed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Real Law, not some made-up right-wing blather.

    Similar tactic were attempt to prevent integration in the South in the 1960s. Businesses either died or came to accept change. Same with happen on Gay issues. The under 30yo group favor allowing same-sex marriage by 70%, the nation’s total population acceptance of SSM is over 50%.

    The last time businesses had the right to refuse service for “any” reason was 1964

    In New Jersey a Boardwalk Pavilion that had been ruled in 1908 tax free as it was a public accommodation lost a similar suit in 2007. That was owned by a Methodist group but was not a church. It subsequently lost it’s tax exempt status & also quit holding weddings.

    If you rent out your space, be it your home or a warehouse in an industrial park, for public use then it is a public accommodation and available for all the public to use equally. I remember this same attitude over Civil Rights, Interracial Marriage and School Desegregation. I grew up in a Virginia county that did close schools rather than desegregate in 1958-59 and I missed a whole year of school. I can remember the day the NAACP came and the first two black kids were enrolled. I also remember the Klan burning two crosses on my parents front lawn in protest to their support in integration. I remember places saying they wouldn’t serve Blacks and all the same rants but you know what? They either did serve blacks eventually or they went out of business. Same will happen with the businesses that spout anti gay bigotry, they’ll change or die off.

    Pat, a Utah judge decriminalized polygamy last week. Groups of people are already suing to establish state recognized households for tax, property rights and all the other legislated benefits and advantages afforded to recognized and license “family” units. The very real issue is not what your god thinks or the moral judgements on how you ****, NO – the real civil rights secular reason for same-sex or polygamist marriage recognition by the secular governments is that the governments of USA provide over 1100 various special rights, tax breaks, and other advantages to those that hold a state, not church issued Marriage License. That is why we call it E-Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y. Has absolutely nothing to do with what your Pope, Preacher, Bishop or Auntie Sarah thinks is right or wrong with the act, its in the rights that count.

    There’s a restaurant in Annapolis that had the sign out on West Rd that read:

    ” We have BACON and we’re not afraid to use it!”

    I believe that is actually a direct threat.

    Here’s a Bacon-wraped sausage-stuffed pork chop to you!

    That vein of extreme Christian thought applies to only about 25% of American. Most citizen’s are Christian in name only. Radical traditionalist are fading away as they age out.

    Sound like a solid business plan, scout out bigots and sue the backward dimwitted buffoons. Get some funding and buy the distressed business for pennies on the dollar after the legal burdens bankrupt the homophobes.

    New York Civil Rights law is clear, this is a PUBLIC accommodation, advertising to the general public its range of services and under New York law sexual orientation is a specifically protected class. Hobby Lobby in no way applies. The farm does not have a leg to stand on and should they continue they will loose and loose again.

    92% of women when presented with a downs syndrome diagnosis through prenatal testing with terminate their pregnancy. Overall projected DS births are off by well over 50% since 1996.

    Reality is most women want access to abortion for reasons precisely like be faced with the very real burdens downs syndrome and other birth defects.

    Send FFRF photos so we can go after all of them!!

    Like the mythical right to refuse service, you are mistaken. Since 1964 using qualifiers like race, religion and gender to discount prices has been prohibited nationwide.

  • [-2] August 21, 2014 at 5:55am

    Actually FFRF is correct, see this 2912 story from the Blaze [http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/11/30/govt-gives-pa-restaurant-a-choice-give-10-sunday-church-bulletin-discount-to-atheists-too-or-discontinue-it-entirely/]

    The reason this differs from other discounts becasue of the religious qualifier.

    There are several cities in America where you can not have Ladies Nights with sex qualified discounts.

    @jblaze, Perry has no authority to discharge or discipline any county elected official for any misdemeanor. She is not running for reelection.

    Texas was once a Democrat-dominated state and it looks to be headed back that way. Wanna bet they get a woman Democrat Governor next? Liberal Texas is not just Austin anymore either, it’s San Antonio, it’s Houston and many of the small revitalized towns around the Hill Country. Perry, Cruz and old Corny rely on statewide votes to get support for their backward conservative policies. Population shifts to urban and younger voters plus the realization of the negative effects that the GOP rule has wrought on Texans are bringing change in the Lone Star State. There’s a backlash acomin’ and it’s gonna sting.

    any comments are in error simply because you are not from Texas. You must recognize the differences in Texas law. The indictment is valid based on Texas law. Probably is different from laws where y’all live.
    The problem is that she was not Perry’s to fire, Gov. GoodHair was not her employer. She is an elected official – not in a Perry controlled office, her’s is a County office, not under state control. Perry attempted to coerce an elected official to resign who he could not fire by withholding approved funds unless she acquiesced. That is a pretty clear violation of Texas law. No law in Texas requires termination or allows for removal of any elected official for a misdemeanor. There is no legal manner to fire her, the Travis Country Board can’t fire her, she is in an elected office. Under Texas law, the Governor would appoint the replacement should the DA’s office be open. Most in Travis County do NOT want a Perry appointed DA. One poll shows that Lehmberg would be reelected if she ran for office now. No law in Texas requires her to resign, none!

    Look, I’m as anti-Perry as anyone but the historic name of a ranch has nothing to do with the character of Rick Perry. Lowest of all possible cheap shots to even mention it.

    Now the “Three Agencies I’ll Close” debate performance on the other hand clearly demonstrates Perry is a puppet who can’t remember his lines very well.
