    Why not just admit you made a mistake...if you didn't he's pretty much spot on with his comment.

    There's a difference between a private establishment (like a bakery or a restaurant) and the Fire Department. Public servants must treat all people regardless of personal ideology.
    Kinda like the police always do?

    Everyone must realize that there is nothing that can be said to change the minds of the people supporting the law in Indiana. Their brains are wired differently and there is nothing you can do about that. They are incapable of seeing this any other way. The only logical way to solve this is a federal law making LGBT a protected class.

    Since you have started talking to yourself in public, now might also be a good time to cut your losses and stop posting nonsense.

    And why am I apologizing to him.

    Not shocked you go along with him and what he says. Not surprised in the least.

    Outstanding idea, let's get all corporations out of politics.

    Why are Christians being singled out in regards to religious beliefs by the way?

    I think that's sort of the point, no?

    (Just for those who are slow on the uptake: WTF do I care what some desert dwelling nomads thought about anything 3,000 years ago?  Why the hell should that interest me in the slightest as far as how I live my life is concerned?)

    Back then young women married off for survival reasons, and that still happens in many countries today. Many old beliefs are still upheld, but any real Christian is taught to love their neighbor which pretty much means everyone, and would not discriminate gays unless they're being asked to produce a good, or provide a service that's contrary to their beliefs.

    Always good. I'm white. But my brother is a cop and my wife used to work in juvenile hall. From what they tell me, law enforcement public servants are quite open in their disdain for minorities, and it informs their treatment of them.

    Quite the whack job right here. A real liberal delight I suspect.

    They shouldn't be. Any religious belief system that teaches that those who don't share your particular ideology are fair game for discriminatory treatment should be called out.

    There are too many groups already that receive unequal treatment. There should be no "protected classes". Collectivism is a poisonous, divisive philosophy. The Constitution protects individuals, not groups. People are not an endangered species.

    I got pulled over by a real jerk off one time. Thought he was cop of the century.

    Had another come to my door one morning to tell be someone spray painted my car and garage door. Very nice guy. Polite and professional.

    I think more are good certainly but many liberals just think all white cope discriminate and kill,

    The Koran is not exactly supportive of homosexuality.

    Seldom brought up though for some reason.

    Cook might be the most epic AI troll ever.

    How many Muslims live in America. Quite a few I believe. Some own businesses here believe it or not. You conveniently just mention politicians,

    Less than one percent of the population. And, uh, yes, I am conveniently just mentioning politicians as politicians are the ones that pass laws.
