Lawmakers Consider Gay Discrimination Policies

They pursued the matter in court because the baker broke the law. This was found to be true both in court, as well as upon appeal. Lie all you like, it doesn't change reality.  (5 hrs ago | post #4998)

Only because you lack a relevant argument with a rational basis. It's not my fault you are dumb in addition to being bigoted.  (5 hrs ago | post #25140)

No, Wondering, you don't believe that, or you would support the free exercise and free choice of David and Charlie to buy a cake at Masterpiece Cake Shop. What you really support is freedom for those who hold views similar to your own, and bigoted discrimination against those who believe differently. Providing the cake in question would in no way infringe upon any of Jack's rights.  (5 hrs ago | post #25136)

You are perpetually going in circles, because you have no valid argument. The reality is the law is warranted, which the baker's actions concretely prove. You couldn't offer so little as a rational basis for why you think it should be overturned. The law in no way burdens any of the baker's freedoms.  (5 hrs ago | post #25135)

Tell me, stupid person, if David had been marrying Charlene instead of Charlie, would Jack provide the cake? If so, then he was in fact discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. Your rationalization on this point is childish at bestThis thread clearly shows that you are a lying idiotNO, moron, you support illegal discrimination against people who believe differently than you. That is neither tolerant, nor is it supporting liberty for all.  (7 hrs ago | post #4975)

His belief in marriage is based upon the sexual orientation of the participants. At any rate, his views on marriage are utterly irrelevant to the transaction. If he feels marriage should only be between a man and a woman, he has the right to act in accordance with those beliefs himself, he has no right to refuse service because a client has differing beliefsNo, he was punished based upon the fact he broke the lawYou are an idiot. Jack was found guilty because he broke the law. Silva was found not guilty because refusing to offer offensive customization is not illegal. Your repeated mischaracterizatio n of these case only serves to prove that you are not terribly intelligent, and that you have no moral fiber. Someone with actual character wouldn't lie.  (7 hrs ago | post #25128)

Of course, the passages he requested were modified, and they weren't the sole content requested. Were he not an imbecile, and had he requested only bible quotes verbatim, he likely would not have been denied service, and he would have had a much more defensible legal positionNo, he was denied offensive customizationSwitching to Jack, mid argument? It appears you can't even keep it straight which case you are talking about. Tell me, dumb person, did Jack refuse to Make David and Charlie a wedding cake, when he offers such service to othersSo is being judgmentalNo, they don't, that is a childish claimThat is one fool's opinionThen stop attending (arranging?) themNo, they are just stupid.  (7 hrs ago | post #25126)

There is something illegal if that service is denied upon the basis of the client's sexual orientation, which was the case hereThis thread clearly illustrates that you are an intolerant twit, and liar. You claim to support liberty for all, but advocate illegal discrimination against those who believe differently than you do. You are an idiot.  (10 hrs ago | post #4967)

You claim to support liberty for all, but in the same breath argue for illegal discrimination against those who believe differently than you. You claim that Jack broke no law. You claim that Colorado does not have an anti-discriminatio n statute. What is more, you claim that Jack was within his rights, even though he was found guilty in court, and that ruling was upheld upon appeal. Pretty much everything you say, when you manage to stay on topic, is a lie.  (Wednesday | post #4906)

In Colorado, they have no right to choose to deny service on the basis of the sexual orientation of the client. So far, you have failed in articulating any way in which providing the service in question would infringe upon any of the baker's rights.  (Wednesday | post #25029)

The facts were in Silva's favor. She did not break the law, which is why she won her case in court.  (Wednesday | post #25028)
