“And of course we all know that a law passed by any branch of any government is Gospel and can not be broken.
In addition, organic farmers have been complaining for at least a decade, about being surrounded by farms that use chemicals, and those chemicals spread to the "organic" fields.
You don't trust the government to provide you with healthcare, but you trust it to provide you with safe food!”
“You can tell someone, like me, face to face, that I wasn't born gay? When I, a gay man, know today, and I knew when I was pre-pubescent, that my "feelings" for my male friends, and female friends, were "reverse" of what they had, for one another!
BTW, there is no scientific consensus, or EVIDENCE, that a supreme being exists, so your belief in god, is just "wishful thinking"!”
“Why do you draw the line at felons? Once they have served their time, they should be treated like anyone else. Even jobs are denied felons, although one requirement to stay out of prison, is to have a job.
"Christians" will always have someone to persecute!”

“I, personally, do not draw the line at felons. I believe that after time has been served for a felony conviction that the citizen should have their rights restored at 100%.
In reality this is not true. In reality, felons are often not afforded the right to vote, for instance. I was just speaking about reality instead of my preferred world, you see.”
“That's between him and his creator. A business does have the right to decline service to an individual, or organization, just not out of religious prejudice.”

“You don't even see how hypocritical your posts are do you? You post what I presume you think is a safe "politically correct" lie for him to tell. Then you claim that he has the right to decline service. Which is it Bruce? Why lie when you have a right to discriminate in your business practices Bruce?
I presume from your SFC insignia that you swore to uphold the Constitution. You may need a little refresher. You should start with the 1st Amendment's religious protections. The baker's right to practice his religion ends where it oppresses others,
just as your right to swing your arm ends at the tip of my nose.”
“I was chef in a high end catering company. I served many clients I didn't care for. But they got the same quality service as any client that I enjoyed serving.
My Grandfather used to say, "As long as their money is green."”

“that's why I'd be terrible working a retail job, my mouth runs ahead of the brain :)”
“Believe whatever you want, but if you conduct business in the secular world, you must comply with secular law. Your religious rights are protected as a civil right, not as supreme law. Supreme law in the United States is the Constitution.”
“It depends on your definition of spiritual. I think, sitting on a log in the middle of the forest, or on an empty beach, or looking down from a Mesa, or standing in the Vietnam Memorial, in DC, spiritual.”

“Totally agree with you. I am not a spiritual person but there was a time I was visiting Yosemite National Park in CA and went off from the group. I ended up all alone looking down toward the valley. I heard a noise behind me and turned to see a group of deer grazing. They looked at me but did not move. I was surrounded by so much beauty and grandeur that it brought tears to my eyes. That, in a word, is spiritual.
F&F for recognizing one does not have to be in a building amongst other people to become one with whoever you worship.”
“My God! I can't believe how many Americans live for war and killing! Why don't you all enlist, There are many of us who will be happy to send you into battle! Just think, you can carry an awesome automatic weapon, that fires 600 rounds minute, and you can get the thrill of some stranger shooting back! And it will all be legal and you even get paid $100 a week, with room and board, and free care from the best healthcare system in the world!”
