“the evolutionary maturation of the global community to the fact that Gays have been a part of our family units and the greater social context since the beginning of time has grown by leaps and bounds over the last decade. those, some would call "fags" are the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of heterosexuals as well as homosexuals within your local community.
Gays are/were born to heterosexuals. Does the restaurant discriminate service to "fag makers?" Lets be honest here, nearly every family has a Gay member.”
“the first time an innocent person is shot there will be an uproar. bartenders can be held responsible if they leave a patron leave drunk...that same sharing of responsibility may need to apply here for those organizations who advocate for such dangerous practices.”

“i wish there would be an uproar over concealed permit carriers when that happens.
an incident near me occurred and no changes.”

“Good point ......... If an establishment allows weapons on the premises they might be held responsible for their improper use.”
“said Teetsel. "That said, if there was a law that denied UCC or any church from conducting a purely religious ceremony, I would be against it. The right to religious freedom and free exercise is so important that we have to defend it even in instances where people are doing things we disagree with."
But the Equal Rights of Gay American Citizens is not important? The reason for this particular article is because civil rights are being denied to Gays in some states.”

“I want to know how TMZ secured the audiotape and how it was placed in such a way as to catch Sterling's rants? I do not agree with what he said or stands for,,,,,,but am curious as to how the audio came about?”
Broken Spell on Apr 30, 2014 at 16:45:18
“I don't know how it got to TMZ, but it has been reported that Sterling requests people to record his conversations because he has a memory problem. He has not said that the recording was made without his consent, and he is the only person who can do that.”
“I always find it interesting when politicians attempt to make a name for themselves, with banning gay marriage, banning raising the minimum wage and the like, the camera and publicity turns to them just in time to snap the picture of their blunders and hypocrisy. When you draw the public's attention you have to be careful to keep you house in order.”
“the article did say that it would be offered as an elective, not a mandatory course. I took a comparative religion class in college and if presented in an unbiased way can be enlightening on an intellectual level.”

“This isn't a comparative class nor is it designed to be unbiased.”
“and the lord sent those who were/are different into the midst of those who profess that the lord's love abides in them, but they discarded and cast out their sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, brothers and sisters, friends and fellow Christians. the lord's heart ached to know that his children made a mockery of his love and greedily proclaimed the lord's love only for themselves.
the purity of the lord's love is maintained by the "to you and through you" pathway. their hearts were plugged by their minds egocentricity. the test is not for those who are different. they have fulfilled the lord's purpose. the test is for those who consider themselves special and have replaced a humble heart with an entitled one.”
Alan Schultz on Apr 20, 2014 at 17:35:17
“That is a powerful statement. The true test of whether God's love abides in you is whether or not you can accept those who are different.”

“And the Flying Spaghetti Monster reached down with His noodly appendage and inscribed upon the Earth "smarten the **** up and stop hating on my children who entwine their noodles and bang their meatballs together." And it was an equally meaningful pronouncement upon morality. :-P
We don't need supernatural, superstitious nonsense to correct our inhumanity toward each other-- we need empathy and compassion and empirical understanding of the phenomenal world we live in, wherein same-sex attraction and activity is natural, to wit, besides humans, it occurs in plenty of other animal species "in nature."”

“GOD already wrote the scripture, he doesnt need your help. No, we dont need the gospel of Scott.”
“those who choose to remain static and inflexible will eventually be left behind. times are changing. with the increasing baby boomer elder population there needed to be a massive influx of revenue into medicare to maintain some type of public healthcare net.”
“The only way to regain fair healthcare pricing is to take your medical negotiating ability back from insurance companies and the government. Pay cash. Negotiate with your provider, local pharmacist and hospital for the price you will pay. When we start paying cash again the competitive pricing will return. Competition in any business generates and supports the well being of that business. The healthcare system is ill and we need to cure it with cash pay for service.”
“suspend all the student loans! we have the money to send billions upon billions overseas, but cannot suspend student loans for out citizens who earned degrees that now earn them higher income taxes. why is the American citizen financially raped over and over again on the same dollar?”
“Federal Student loans are what citizens pay to have a professional career. It is the expense for employment. In addition our employment taxes then rise with our rise in salary. We pay the government back twice for the same loan.
At one time this was called indentured servitude.”
“I will have to disagree....Cheek Feel ya is putting a lot of effort in trying to create a new image. and by the way....Cheek Feel ya spoke up first against Gays. If you are a public restaurant, not a private, member only one, the term public includes ALL people. Otherwise build a members only establishment. And the money the CEO donated to antigay bills, some of that was derived from Gay customers and those who have Gay family and friends. I don't want my purchase dollar working against me.”
John DeKraai on Apr 10, 2014 at 10:07:55
“What are you talking about? "Cheek feel ya," is that supposed to be clever? I don't even know what that means. CFA is a private business that serves the public. They don't discriminate against gay people.”
“those people who will others not to have equal rights are wrong. what those people can do is avoid dealing with Gays....and that will be difficult because you either work with a Gay person, you have a family member, neighbor, and/or friend who is Gay. We are the International Culture that crosses all borders and is included in every nations constituency.”
“This is one reason why I do not want a 401K or any other money taken from my check to be invested...because eventually it will be ripped off by a couple trades and "lost" to someone's pocket and I will never see that money again. I don't even have a savings account in a bank anymore.”
“and here goes our tax dollars yet again to another country. Let any of the other countries provide support for the Ukraine and every other country who have their hands out. Why does the American Taxpayer have to pay support payments to the rest of the world?”
“And healthcare continues to evolve, mature and progress for the benefit of the patients. Change is merely moving your perspective from one view to another and yet is the most difficult undertaking humans can take.”
“can Hobby Lobby discriminate during any hiring process to fill employment positions? No, that would violate employment laws...so why should they be allowed to discriminate against national health care laws?
Perhaps all these non-profits need to close their doors to anyone that is NOT affiliated with their organization. Make them private, member only businesses and then they can do as they please.”
“I will give it up for the K&K couple and their trying to create a family, but as for the rest of it they are media leaches who are as shallow as a drought ridden California riverbed. They offer nothing to the progress of mankind.”
