Based on the historical oppression and continuing oppression of LGBTQ, it makes sense to have them be a protected class. I don't think a business owner should be allowed to hide behind his or her religion to justify discriminating in business practices.
    I'm still waiting for you to tell me if BFM should be required to code for a gay porn site.

    Of course you don’t have a problem with it. You are a liberal and this was a case against a Muslim. Liberals love Mormons for some weird reason.

    I'm really surprised it was 7-2 and not 5-4

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."

    No, its a narrow interpretation, that gives a win to these people in very narrow circumstances.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Now you are arguing the other side?


    Football season can't come soon enough. That is, as long as football distracts Uncle Ted from everything else.

    I’m 99% sure Uncle Ted was being sarcastic.
