"The 14th amendment says the laws must applied equally under the law even to religious people and groups."

What if a religious person/group thought child labor builds character? Would the gov't be obligated to give contracts to groups that hired 10 year olds just because a religion believed that, or would they have to follow laws regarding age of workers?

There are already labor laws, that were constitutionally made and do not violate any amendment, that deal with that.

Join us in the present times, and as you already know you can not create a new religion to just skirt existing laws.

Now I would be applauding the Prez if he had the guts to sign Executive Orders protecting other discriminated groups besides the LGBT (and no I'm not talking about religious minorities), but since the LGBT seems to be the only group he's protecting all I can do is yawn.

FT says:

"Religon is not being persucuted in this country, equal rights are."

--- I go even further and say that religion is not being persecuted in this country, they are those doing the persecuting.

@Pianoman;

Seriously?

Do you even keep up with current events? The President only ADDED sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of those already protected. He didn't create any new laws, he only modified, very slightly, existing laws.

Race, Religion, Gender, Color, etc. are already listed on the law that he modified. George Bush the First and the Second BOTH modified this law, as did Clinton.

That's exactly my point. This is just another constitutional labor regulation regarding gov't contracts that does not violate any amendment.

Hmmmmm.....so does this mean that Obama will sign a law outlawing discrimination against Christians and conservatives?

Yes, that's a serious question.

And here's a serious answer. The so-called "Christians" and the far right so-called "conservatives" aren't being discriminated against. They're the ones doing the unjust and prejudicial discriminating. You think they should be given free license to practice unjust and prejudicial discrimination? I don't.

Furry, no, I don't think Christians and conservatives should have "free license" to do "unjust and prejudicial discriminating".

However, in truth, they are NOT doing those things you claim they are. If you refuse to see how the homosexual agenda is being crammed the throats of Christians and conservatives I simply cannot help you.

Good luck.
