To "Baccus0902" why are you lumping me into something that I have said nothing about. I never said that the LGBT people are trying to destroy something sacred. I have only said that those who claim that discrimination is evil are hypocrites because they discriminate all the time. The difference is when and why you discriminate.

How, may I ask, does a law that fights discrimination, take away freedom of religion? Well, they mentioned all the lovely people who discriminated against gay people and said that they were forced into doing something they didn't believe in! So, actually their freedom of religion is freedom to discriminate! Poor picked on mam probably almost died making that cake for gay people! I would be embarrassed to act that way towards somebody! I have a problem with people who think that discrimination is acceptable!

I think that comparing homosexuals to child predators and molesters is old, inaccurate, and highly inflammatory. How can we keep the discussions here civil when we allow such comments through?

I appreciate your article bringing this issue to light. The proposed legislation has nothing to do with the marriage debate. Groups such as the Sutherland Institute obviously have their own agenda! The proposed legislation would do nothing to stop any business from their beliefs. Look how long the "no shoes, no shirt, no service" has been in existence! It would not compromise any business from not accepting a customer that differs from their philosophical difference. This legislation would only work to curb work and living discrimination, which I believe we can all (or should believe in...

People supporting this anti-discrimination law forget that they too discriminate, just in other ways. The gay rights community consistently discriminates against those who disagree with them. After Prop 8 passed in California, many Mormons lost their jobs when they were discovered to have supported the proposition, especially those who gave many to support it. The gay rights community reserves the right, and constantly refuse to do business with stores organizations that don't support their agenda. Is that not discrimination? Why is it acceptable by these groups? I suspect many gay supportive or gay run businesses want the right to not hire someone who is opposed to homosexuality and gay marriage. Why is this protected and considered acceptable?
Christians are being required to provide services they disagree with to protect the "rights of gays", but I don't see the same protections offered to neo-nazis and racist groups. Why is that if we are supposed to not discriminate against anyone.

Here is the reality of liberalism, they are tolerant only if you agree with their viewpoint. Once you disagree, the tolerance goes out the window, and you are labeled as a hateful person or hate group.


Not agreeing with a gay person's lifestyle doesn't make a person discriminatory. Everyone has a right to live and stand up by their own convictions and morals.
