  1. Naw it will be traced back to a temp accountant. The CFO might get fired, but no legal damages. The temp accountant will have their life ruined.
  2. Is the other stance that it is okay to discriminate against others for religious reasons? If so, I will never say that is okay. If not, please tell me what the other stance is because I only see it as okay or not okay to discriminate. We have to treat all humans as equals. Its doesnt matter if they are Democrats or Republicans, gay or straight, black or white, blonde or ginger, blue eyed or brown eyed, male or female, bama fan or Auburn fan, married or single.
  3. You do have a dog in the fight. You are arguing that it is okay to discriminate against others based on religious beliefs. I brought up a hypothetical that was based on historical events. Remember Nazi Germany and the Aryan Race? By allowing discrimination against others for religious beliefs, you are setting up precedent that religious freedoms take precedence over all. It is the same thing with Freedom of Speech, you can say whatever you want, but as soon as you verbally assault or threaten someone's lively hood, you are getting into trouble. Nobody is saying you cant practice whatever religion you follow, but you still cant discriminate or murder (human sacrifices) someone based on religious beliefs. How is this that hard to understand?
  4. So just to be clear. You think it is okay to discriminate against others as long as it "follows their religious beliefs" So hypothetically if later on down the road some creates the religion of hate and it gets a big following. Say their scripture says that only black hair and green eyed people should be allowed to live. Would it be okay for one of the followers to refuse service or kill anyone that isnt black haired and green eyed?
  5. Again, you keep looking for reasons to allow discrimination, but since you asked: Proverbs 6:16-19 Genesis 1:27 Leviticus 19:14 Proverbs 28:21 Proverbs 24:23 Deuteronomy 10:17-19 1 Samuel 16:7 I have a hard time believing any religion promotes discrimination. So for someone to justify discrimination because of religious beliefs is baffling.
  6. I can see your point, but assuming they are Christian, there are several Bible verses that contradict their beliefs of not serving married gays: Galatians 3:28 Galatians 5:14 James 2:2-4 Matthew 5:44 Romans 2:11 Mark 12:31 Acts 10:34 John 8:15 Do I need to keep going? All throughout the bible are verses about treating everyone the same. As a Christian, I have never been able to understand how people can use the Bible as an excuse for discrimination when there are tons of scripture talking about treating everyone as equals.
  7. Isnt that still discrimination though? Having religious beliefs doesnt excuse people discriminating others. It is discriminatory because the baker would bake a wedding cake for a straight couple but not a gay couple. I dont see how you cant see that.
  8. That's unfortunate. I was hoping we would learn and grow from our ancestors mistakes. It shouldn't be this hard to treat all humans as equals.
  9. That's not what I was asking, and you are missing the point. The point is, they are using Religion as a justification for discriminating gays, and that's not okay. If this were to pass, you are opening Pandoras Box to further allow discrimination.
  10. So question, since marriage isn't a given to last forever and that seems to be the premise of your argument, do you think it would be okay for a baker to refuse service a married, black, straight couple because of the baker's religious beliefs?
  11. Please tell me how it is the Democrats fault when the Republicans elected him into power. Not only that, but the Democrats impeached him twice, but the Republicans did nothing and left him in power.
  12. I thought I had heard it all until this comment. Yes, everything is the Democrats fault.
  13. I think the winner will be the winner of the England France game or Brazil. I think I'd rather have France or Brazil win it all. To me, soccer is more fun when Brazil is at the top, and I dont want England to win.
  14. I dont think they should be auto seeded, but I do think they should be guaranteed a spot. Winning your Conference should matter. Imo what's missing from the playoffs currently is that they dont use the Conference Championships as an unofficial quarterfinal to the playoffs.
