Texas Restaurant That Refused 'Fag' Customers Touted As Gay Bar Online

Texas Restaurant That Refused 'Fag' Customers Touted As Gay Bar Online

Commented Jun 1, 2014 at 20:54:18 in Gay Voices

“Texas Eagle Forum:“I think that for the homosexual community to be targeting a restaurant and good people is ugly, it is uncalled for."

I think this is a hilarious idea and I applaud the peaceful civil disobedience the LGBT community has engaged in. I only wished I lived in that area so I could watch the fun.”

“I predict a split in the UMC. The local UMC I used to attend was unwilling to bend at concerning the Book of Discipline. Although I will never return to the UMC, I think a split would be welcomed by thousands of more moderate Methodists.”

“Jordan, I am also a recovering Methodist and left the UMC because of the depressing sermons. I attended a rather large church in Fayetteville AR and grew tired of being told every Sunday how worthless I was except for God's grace. This church was quite conservative and backwards in much of its thinking. Moving to the UU church was the best decision I ever made.”

“I don't share the "Gay Day is not OK" or "Gay is not OK" position but I do support their right to free speech. The shirts merely stated a position and did not advocate violence of any type. As such, the wearing of these shirts is protected by the 1A.”

“I'm pleased that in some of these categories at least, AR is not as bad as other Southern states. That said, it should be a mark of shame for all those in the South that we rank so low relative to the rest of the country.”

“This is an idea whose time has come; actually, it's long overdue. College athletes in the major sports, basketball and football, make millions for their schools but must forgo having a part-time job just to have a little spending money. That being the case, demanding better health insurance and assurances of tuition in the event of injuries is more than reasonable-it's the right thing to do. However, it is also reasonable to expect athletes to fulfill at least 3 years of playing for a given school. Quid pro quo.”

“Books (except for ereaders) require no batteries or updates. You never need to be near a "hotspot" to read. Print books require no tech support to use.

In short, what's not to like about reading? Sadly, I have yet to meet a woman who loves to read a much as I do;may explain why I'm still single.”

Teen Handcuffed For Cutting In Line In School Cafeteria: Complaint

Teen Handcuffed For Cutting In Line In School Cafeteria: Complaint

Commented Jan 27, 2014 at 21:46:49 in Politics

“Drew, there are also cases where officers overstep their authority. Being a cop doesn't give you carte blanche to arrest people at will. Mouthing off and threatening are two very different things. If what the article says about the student returning to school, getting attacked and then being hassled by the cops instead of the cops arresting the attackers, I'd say the student will win this case hands down. This doesn't even include the very winnable civil suit. Violating a citizen's civil rights isn't very wise either.”

“While on the surface it appears that there has been a miscarriage of justice in the extreme, I agree with others that there may be more to this story that is not being publicized. That said, I fail to see why cutting in line warranted handcuffs or pushing the student over a wall.”

Dr Drew on Jan 23, 2014 at 21:00:11

“If it was a police officer, you have to obey their commands, that is the law. People don't know this, but it is.

If a cop gives you instructions, obey. If you don't want to obey, that's fine actually, but you'll be placed under arrest. If you resist arrest in anyway, you'll be charged with that. AND resisting arrest is very easy to do. They tell you to turn around to be cuffed and you don't immediately do it, that's resisting.

Mouth off to the cop? Threatening an officer perhaps could be their interpretation.

It really is that simple. I don't care for it, but arguing with a police officer isn't wise.”

“Jonathan, try actually reading my comment in full. You might then be able to offer a more intelligent response. I in no way suggested that Apple should be forced to allow a given app. I merely offered the idea that everything is offensive to someone; if they remove all the apps that offend someone, they will likely have very, very few apps left.”

“Chris, you apparently don't understand my post. Do yo u understand the concept of censorship? I'd guess not. If you don't like an app, don't buy it; it's no different than not buying a book you don't like or not seeing a movie you object to.

Based on your comment, I'd guess you are one who'd favor broad censorship of books,movies and television if a single person objects. Very sad.”

“While I certainly respect Apple's right to allow whatever apps they choose, I believe the free market is a better adjudicator of what should be allowed. The exception is any app which explicitly promotes violence, as does the iSlam Muhammed app. The rest of the ones listed, while perhaps politically incorrect, cause no tangible harm and should be to those who want to use it. What is offensive is a very subjective thing.”

“Wrong. The APPLE App Store is wholly hosted on APPLE owned servers in APPLE owned data centers on APPLE owned property. Starting to see why APPLE can do whatever it wants in it's own app store??”

“I'd say call it a tie and everyone go home. The young lady should have had the sense to confine her hair in some way. The GoKart track employees should have insisted that she do so, for her own protection(bet they will require that of all long hair henceforth). The manager should have called 911. All this said, it's going to be difficult for a jury to second-guess the decision to cut her hair to save her life.since they weren't there. In the final analysis, all that was lost was hair, which will grow back.”

“Brandon, this will not end well if the law passes. Saying the student may simply sit there quietly and actually allowing a student to perhaps read instead are two different things. SC is a very backwards, conservative state, by in large. I can guarantee that those students choosing not to pray will be ridiculed and shunned by the religious community.

I lived in SC for two years and couldn't get out of there fast enough when I was able to.”

“Stephen, there is nothing I do that would harm you, so no, you can't make me stop doing something simply because you don't like it. You are trying to compare apples to oranges. Second-hand smoke is a known, proven carcinogen:

"Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke from the burning end of a cigarette and the smoke breathed out by smokers. Secondhand smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals. Hundreds are toxic and about 70 can cause cancer." ( http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/secondhand_smoke/health_effects/ )

If you're going to debate me, Stephen, you need to be better prepared. An amusing try, thought, I'll give you that.”
