Colorado's Masterpiece Cakeshop Must Serve Gay Couples Despite Owner's Religious Beliefs, Judge Rules

“In this country "sincerely held religious beliefs" DO take a back seat to the laws of the land.
It's called separation of church and state. When a religion can override a law, then we have a theocracy.
You can believe or not whatever religion you want but you will live by the laws of the land.
The evidence that these business owners are refusing to serve gay people is the FACT that they refused to serve them... no cake for you... you bad, bad men!!”

“I'll get these glasses fixed lol!  I definitely don't agree with ANYTHING I've ever heard McConnell say, or at least I don't recall it.  I did think it odd that a GOPeer would care anything about his electorate that might actually need something.”

“Ok... let's see how this plays here...

My theory is that EVERYONE is a racist. EVERYONE has those thoughts, It's in our nature to favor someone of our own color. Not that it's a good thing, just that it is what it is. It's what you DO with those thoughts that count. You can choose to succumb to them or make a conscious effort to not let it rule your life.

What is needed is to figure out a way to help people of EVERY color overcome those thoughts and feelings and try to look PAST the color and see the PERSON.

This isn't something that can happen overnight but should be taught from the youngest age possible and continue till adulthood and then even beyond.
Of course, the problem with this is that few would admit to being a racist and accept that fact and then want to do something about it.

Accept that you are a racist and decide to not give in to those thoughts for even one day or one hour at a time. Then for the next hour and so on. It is actually a life long pursuit.
Make THAT a class to be taught to everyone in schools.

Alas, it is but ONE of the MANY flaws in the human makeup. We have SO far to go.”

“Your thesis is wrong. Basic psychology says that friends and cohorts are chosen by who one is raised around, who one IS around. That is, physical proximity determines ones preferences for associates and friends. That can be changed if one is made to feel uncomfortable. But ALL people know that young children, until they are taught otherwise, have no preference in the way you are talking. It appears that until they are taught to see color as significant, they do not see it as significant. Every bit of practical evidence and experiment shows that you are wrong.

There is not one sliver of evidence that says that it is human nature to prefer someone that looks like you. NOT ONE BIT OF EVIDENCE. Your ideas are wonderful, and you are not a racist, but your thesis is pure racism.”

“Sorry.. that's just plain dumb and not in the least gratuitous.

At least mine was closely related to the fact that you apparently didn't bother to actually look up the word you mocked her about.
Had you, then you wouldn't be playing the fool here. So, better for you that you stop while you are only slightly behind.”

Rowsdower on Nov 26, 2013 at 17:15:12

“The word she was grasping for was "unkempt", not "unkept". Two different words that sound similar, but I would expect an education specialist to differentiate between them.

Now, if you want, you can play the "dictionaries are descriptive not prescriptive" game, which is a roundabout way of saying "I don't know things therefore I don't think it's important to know things". Go there if you like.”
