      Absolutely right. Homosexuals and lesbians should be allowed to legally marry and be as miserable as the rest of us.

        I would sincerely enjoy a mini-segment or web short on bi erasure.

                It's funny to think that up until 1803, when Danmark became the first nation to fully ban slavery, the USA was considered the most progressive nation in the world.

                        Big Earl's Sign is also covertly racist adding "no saggy pants" after their men act like men and women act like women plus no baggy pants" WTF? BIG EARL=BIG BASTARD! I'm betting its patrons have to regularly put up with plumbers crack all over that place including on Earl even though he doesn't have the excuse of being a plumber!

                              God created man & woman to join together and make a family. God did not created a male companion for Adam but rather He created Eve. Now we will tolerate this man to man and woman to woman because mankind allowed it. We are now inviting God's wrath to re-enact the Sodom & Gomorrah incident.

                                Belief in "God's words" is a religious belief.

                              Federal Law does protect same sex couples under the Civil Rights act, it just isn't being enforced.
                              "WHAT?" you may say, "The Civil Rights Act doesn't have LGBT as a protected class" and you would be right.
                              However, it does have RELIGION as a protected class.
                              Sine ALL arguments against LGBT are religious based, the logical result is that LGBT should be able to sue based on religious discrimination.

                                @Tucker Heeren Discrimination caused by it is, per force, discrimination against it.

                                If a Christian discriminates against me based on their christian beliefs, then they are, as a direct result, discriminating against my beliefs being other than Christian.

                              I've been denied service at a restaurant because I didn't look wealthy enough, an Italian restaurant in downtown Portland Oregon. It was a really bad day, my father had just had a stroke across the country and I was at the gym when I got the call. I went for a walk to clear my head and happened upon this place. It didn't look too fancy, people were wearing shorts but apparently I must have not fit the country club look at the moment because they totally ignored me.

                                                    Agree with everything but the baker should be allowed to choose who he bakes a cake for. If he wants to limit his business to heterosexual marriages then that’s his decision and his business will suffer the public backlash. Forcing someone to bake a cake is just silly.

                                                      @Foggy Kosby Again, it's specifically about the legal precedent this incident represents. Whether or not you personally see the practical value in it, is not the deciding factor. It's a matter of law, and if the latter allows for discrimination based on sexuality, that's a gigantic red flag.

                                                      Also, what's the worst he could do to that cake, cum in it? That's something he already does on a regular basis! ;)

                                                      Sokrates with ADHD but it’s not like they can’t go somewhere else and it isn’t their health at stake, why would you want someone who isn’t comfortable making your cake, forced to do so?

                                                      It sets a dangerous precedent. For example: What if a doctor is allowed to refuse treatment to homosexuals?
                                                      Also, discrimination doesn't have to be limited to just sexuality! What if the baker refuses to serve black couples? Discrimination against anyone ought to be illegal, not defended because of muh libertarianism.

I'm a male, Italian, Catholic. I was or am Liberal, in my political beliefs, ran for MP in my jurisdiction. Practice Human rights law and was a professor of law. I don't know if I believe this argument about defining people in a way if their discriminatory or not.... I would attend any wedding that I'm invited too, whether i agree with it or not... but if they where thoughtful enough to think of me to invite me to their wedding,,, I will attend and support... fuck, maybe I don't agree with same sex marriage, cause I believe in man and woman sharing a unity and pro creating ... its just how I was raised, but I would support and go with great intentions. But don't blame me the individual, blame the culture of religions and social acceptance. So, if shaming people as you do, and taking their simple comments and changing them to grandiose discriminatory statements,, its kinda unfair....

                                                                          Well then Mr. "RADICAL QUEER AGENDA", surprise me. Explain your reasons, so you don't have to bicker about assumptions getting made. By the way: Echoing right wing propaganda naturally leads to assumptions...especially when you don't explain your views sufficiently. So better not get offended by forseeable reactions and actually present arguments.

                                                                          That "People like you (...)" sentiment is pretty ironic when it comes from someone complaining about assumptions getting made instead of arguments.

                                                                          Anyway, now is your chance to explain that piss poor excuse of a world view you expressed. Impress me.

                                                                            It isnt really sad to choose a live where you only love god and dont want a Sexual attraction.

                                                                            We are more open to turn communist or ultranationalistic than neoliberalistic.
                                                                            And we dont have many gays in russia. No big parades. And russians would change it when they dont like it (1917).

                                                                            Putin for Россия

                                                                            It doesn’t surprise me that men suppressed their feelings just to be accepted by the church. Russia is a very homophobic country, and you seem homophobic with your mentions of those gay conversion camps which genuinely shocked me. It saddens me that people are forcing themselves away from true feelings and spending their lives in loveless relationships with no sexual attraction.

                                                                            I see this whole conversation from a different angle, because I’m an atheist. Organised religions defies logic and is irrational. There is absolutely no concrete proof for any religion, so why hold such strong views over it?

                                                                            Your country is massively behind the times with your inhumane treatment to homosexuality and it’s disgusting to see such irrational beliefs ruin thousands of lives.

                                                                            You gave three examples of things that manipulate the youth.

                                                                            3. The friends

                                                                            But for some reason you missed the biggest mass manipulator of them all:
                                                                            THE CHURCH

                                                                            And you’re a product of the Churches manipulation. The only reason you didn’t put it on the list was because you’ve been manipulated so much by it that it seems an unquestionable truth. You can’t be this naive, you have to see. Wake up.
