    Monk-Man

    Oh do ‘wax-on’ some more about Plantation Master Obama for us – would you PLEASE?
    Do tell us all how blacks are incapable “of ever fighting for anything” or of respecting the freedom they have because they did not fight for their freedom from slavery – “something [that] really stupid happened”.
    Do tell us how “The slaves were given their freedom like some kind of entitlement.”
    Can you please expand on “This invisible anxiety and lack that black people have is something that bothers them deeply and they just don’t understand it so they just feel a kind of anger in themselves and a sense that they need to set things right.”

    And tell us more about the white man. Tell us HOW / WHY “white people are unknowingly helping them because of the guilt they feel for giving them their freedom. They know inside that freedom is not freedom if you did not fight for it.”

    Tell us how “when a Monk wants to know where something came from … we use this law and simply look at what something is or where it came from.”
    That law? “What something is, is what it extends”.
    OK.

    What extends from “F the f’ing f’ers” Monk-Man?

    Are you / do you feel terrorized by our president Proverbs?
    If so – how so?
    Related… Are you able to identify anything specific that causes you to call Bergdhal a terrorist?

    Let me again point out how the conservative mind works on matters like this using the judicial, and religious (and pundit) examples again.

    Rule in favor of the way a conservative thinks and… You’re a strict constitutionalist judge
    Rule against the way a conservative thinks and… You’re an activist judge.

    Present a belief in the same god/religious values as ‘I’ and… You’re a True Christian
    Interpret your god/religious beliefs in a manner I disagree with and… You are NOT a Christian at all.

    If you’re a pundit and speak-up for a conservative principle or support a beloved fellow conservative and… You’re a true conservative
    Don’t follow lock-step on every conservative principle or speak-out against a beloved conservative and… YOU’RE WRONG!

    Gotta love the simpleton logic of the conservative mind.

    The basic concept is pretty simple.
    Do we allow – codify into law – the ability to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation?

    IF – as the right seems to argue – it is a Right of religious freedom / expression for a business to be able to discriminate / refuse the sale of goods or services, then…
    Where does that take us?
    Will a Jewish deli owner be able to refuse sales to Christians?
    Will a Muslim taxi driver be able to refuse a fare from a Buddhist?
    Will a Scientoligist business owner be able to “disconnect” and refuse selling product or service from… Anyone?
    Will a Hindu doctor be able to refuse treatment to a Muslim emergency room patient?

    We’re not just talking about baking cakes and taking pictures here people.
    We are talking about the possibility of wide-scale discrimination because of one’s indiscriminate applying of ‘religious conviction’.

    Is that the kind of ‘living together’ / ‘accepting that people are different and celebrate true diversity’ you’re talking about Glenn?

    “It has nothing to do with anything that is real.”
    Really Glenn.
    Tell that to the homosexuals (and any others) who are / will be discriminated against because of this (and similar) laws.

    If you are going to operate a business in the public marketplace… ALL your customers have the right to expect the same EQUAL level of service / availability to goods.

    Self-censorship is the ‘best’ censorship there is.
    Talk about closing one’s mind…

  • [1] March 30, 2015 at 12:44pm

    So Krames
    You as a homosexual are not against this Indiana law because it (seemingly) allows for discrimination against gays BUT RATHER “simply because it is a law being used to “fix” a bad law.”
    Very interesting.
    And sorry for my ignorance but… What / which bad law is this law supposedly trying to fix?

    So do you believe homosexual discrimination should be allowed? That… On the basis of ‘religious freedom’ anyone of any faith – operating a business in the public marketplace – should be able to refuse sale/service to anyone else on such grounds???

    And I’m not talking just about baking cakes and taking pictures.
    What happens if this law is applied in a much more ‘critical’ situation – say when an alternative provider is not readily available or… even in a life and death situation?
    Say a Christian doctor or other medical expert is needed to give immediate service to someone who’s ‘lifestyle’ goes against that doctor’s religious beliefs? So is it OK for that doctor to say: ‘Sorry. I do not treat homosexuals. You’ll have to wait for the next doctor.’

    My position is… If you operate a business / provide services in the ‘public market’ then you are to be required to offer and provide the services or goods you ‘sell’ to ALL people equally. (If you want to discriminate… Become a private entity – like a club or similar.)

    Krames
    I for one do not view this as but a “disagreement”. I view this as an affront to the core belief that… ‘ALL men are created equal’.

    Interesting

    Since being raised in a large, strong Catholic family… After having attended Christian-affiliated schools for over 20+ years… (I even studied Latin in college) After my wife and I have sent our son to a Catholic school… After remaining active to this day with many Christian/Catholic and other faith-based institutions and activities…
    I feel I am able to say I have a pretty good understanding of the Christian faith.
    And regardless of my ‘expertise’ (or lack there of) in the religion (or any religion)… I understand that ALL such faiths are but PERSONAL INTERPRETATIONS of what each person has been exposed to.

    And important to note…
    I do NOT tell others what they believe.
    If you care to look at my history and search for such… Have at it but… Such will be a failed search as, again, I do NOT tell people what they believe.
    Instead…
    I ASK them… WHY do they believe what they believe.

    Care to see examples of someone being told what they believe? I could present you example after example after example from folks challenging me and directly telling me what I supposedly believe.

    Krames
    How many posts of Proverbs have you actually read?
    If even a few, it would become apparent to you too that… Proverbs knows not what “reasonable” is. He knows not ‘sensible limitations’.
    I would offer that 95% of his posts are but troll-like attempts to INTENTIONALLY offend those he obviously has little actual understanding of – let alone anything like empathy.

    And who POSTED meaningless gibberish you need a foo language translation guide to even try and understand?

    Come on foo.
    Aren’t you excited that King Obama is returning to the Motherland where he was born and raised to become a radical Islamist Marxist, Socialist Communist American-hating tyrannical leader?
    I thought you’d be happy for Obama.

    Redline29: “Should you be forced into doing something you do not believe in?”

    Did you think of that one all by yourself?
    You might want / need to read your own statement over and over to yourself a few times but… My guess is you might finally grasp the utter ignorance of that statement.

    Fill in the blanks Redline29
    I do not believe in _____________
    Yet I am required to ______________ – so I can live I society.

    Marnin: “I don’t understand why he is suddenly “embattled” or why everyone is calling the law “controversial”.
    WHY?
    Because while Pence tried to hide the activation of this Act, it had to ultimately be reveled to the public and now that it has… The majority realizes the utter failure – codification of intolerance and discrimination – allowed by the act.

    So being gay is like being a Nazi – eh 13th Imam?

    Can you cite the real world cases where any gay or gays have ‘sued them into poverty’?

    Proverbs
    I have never met a person like you in ‘real’ life. Someone who I knew by name or… ‘in-person’ experience.
    Do you really exist in the world outside of the anonymous (Blaze) blog-o-sphere?
    Does anyone in the ‘outside’ world – who knows your real given name – hear you speak with such consistent…
    Disdain for that which you are so obviously ignorant of?
    Seriously.
    I can’t think of a single human I have ever met from who I have heard so much… IGNORANCE – who then was able to actually function in the real world.

    EVERY person I have ever known in my life that was even remotely ‘capable’ of spewing but a Fraction of the ignorance you Proverbs do on a daily basis has either…
    Become aware of their utterly anti-social behavior and reconnected with reality – OR…
    Gone on to take their ‘show on the road’. As in… The road to nowhere. As in…
    Time to see if your act plays in the big tent.

    You Proverbs are but a dying breed.
    A relic of hatred, ignorance and intolerance.

    Your greatest achievement in life may well be the anonymous motivating to victory of the very people and beliefs you are so challenged by.

    And for that I thank you.

    Please properly represent this law to us if you can.
    Thank you.

    (Actually… Feel free to take as many characters as you wish.)

    Kind of reminds me of a song…

    “Setting me up just to knock-a knock-a knock-a me down
    Down, down, down
    I’m going down, down, down, down
    I’m going down, down, down, down
    I’m going down, down, down, down”

    This ACT is going down.

    Sarsfield1650
    You sound a little bitter.
    I guess I might be upset if my intolerance was being attacked / sought to be legally reduced.

    So Sarsfield1650
    When that business is one where there is not another ‘local one near by… When that service becomes potentially life or death…
    Then will you stand by as you or your loved one is discriminated against / service refused?
    This is about FAR MORE than cakes and pictures.
    What’s to stop someone from refusing life-saving services on the grounds that such goes against their religious expression freedoms?
    ‘Oh. You’re a Muslim in a bad car wreak. Too bad. I don’t ‘sell’ my life-saving services to Muslims. You’ll have to wait for the next doctor to see you.’
    ‘Oh. You’re a Christian in a bad car wreak. Too bad. I don’t ‘sell’ my life-saving services to Christians . You’ll have to wait for the next doctor to see you. IF you last that long. Good luck.’

    Tanker135mechanic
    Curious. How does one KNOW when it is a gay (or other sinner) that is seeking to be a customer of theirs?
    In other words… How many other sinners are you / these other businesses / people actually doing business with without ever knowing it / caring about it?
    You all are but HUGE hypocrites when it comes to this matter.

  • [1] March 28, 2015 at 7:06pm

    Tanker135mechanic: “I see you have to twist words in order to make your point.”
    After just having seen your post to me… Now that is funny!

    Twisting my words to TRY and suggest that I “think beheading someone for not accepting Muslim law is the same as declining to take someone’s business”

    Twisting my words to TRY and content that I said limited govt was THE core conservative principle.

    “tell me how a gay couple is damaged by having to go to a nonChristian bakery”
    THE PRINCIPLE of it all is FAR MORE reaching than just the ‘damage’ done to a gay couple or person being denied service at a particular business.
    THAT you and others don’t realize that IS THE core of the differences here on this matter.

    So let’s say one refuses to give medical treatment to a gay on the grounds of ‘religious expression’…
    Then what kind of ‘damage’ might result from that?
    Say there is only a single provider of a certain business in an area and they refuse service to a gay – or to ANYONE (based on religious expression)…
    Then what kind of ‘damage’ might result from that?

    You think this is just about cakes and pictures???
    You couldn’t be more ignorant – AND wrong.

    “I am inconvenienced when the store I want to buy from doesn’t take American Express – but do I cry discrimination?”
    Why is that not discrimination? (I can’t believe I even need to explain this._
    BECAUSE such applies to ALL customers! That’s why.
    Get it?
    Obviously not.
