It's absolutely sickening to have that much hate inside you that you'd prevent a child from having a good home life because of your own prejudices.
And if we made abortion illegal there would be even more kids sitting waiting for loving parents as bigots continue to prevent many equally capable parents from adopting the increase in those needing adoption.

Re: The General LBGTQ rights (or lack of) thread.

LOCATION: BAKERY, INTERIOR

*bell rings, door opens*
Baker: Hello ma'am!
Lady: Hell good sir! I'm here t--
Baker: What can I do for you today?
Lady: --to buy. Oh. I'm here to buy a cake.
Baker: Oh wonderful!
Lady: It's for my wedding.
Baker: Congratulations!! You must be so excited!
Lady: You know it!
Baker: *chuckles*
Lady: *chuckles*
Baker: Well I'll be glad to serve you. We have chocolate, vanilla, devil's food, ang--
Lady: Oh vanilla for sure.
Baker: For all three layers?
Lady: Of course!
Baker: I like your style.
Lady: *chuckles*
Baker: *chuckles*
Lady: You're too kind. My husband-to-be, you see, doesn't like choco--
Baker: What in the fuck?
Lady: ex.. excuse me?
Baker: Did you say... HUSBAND-to-be?
Lady: Yes, I... I did. Is that a...
Baker: I'm sorry, I cannot bake this cake for you.
Lady: I don't understand, what did I do wrong?
Baker: Listen, breeder, it's my right to refuse to serve you.
Lady: But you were going to make it for me. What difference does it make? A cake is a cake.
Baker: I don't make cakes for breeders. Out with you!

The above is a scene I've been working on for my play entitled, "See how fucking dumb this is? That's what you sound like right now."
Positive constructive feedback would be great. No negative shit.

You and your war on heterosexuality, it sickens me. We are the true discriminated group.

Is your plan to have The Breeders playing on the radio at the bakery in the background? The extra irony there would be a nice touch.

I can't hate heterosexuals; I am one! /s (the sarcasm here, for those that are tone deaf, is that you can replace "heterosexuals" with anything that represents self-loathing and it would be accurate because that's the joke. The joke is not whether or not I am a heterosexual because I am one and dammit you can't change me no matter how hard you try!)

What I dislike most is the auto-correct that changes actual words to something entirely different.

I think the Lady should get the cake. I’m an Ally of the breeder community.

Dems going after Trump for the trans-Military ban. Good!

The ban is so wrong on so many levels. There have always been transgender people serving in the military. Always. They have died for this country.

While some things I understand but not agree with. This is beyond silly. It is insane. It literally hurts the military as well as morale.

As a vet (damn, I used to not need to bring that up when making a point ) I'm particularly bothered by this coming from someone who avoided serving. Even if he had served, it would still be wrong, but this adds a level of insult to it.

Do you think the military should allow everyone in who wants to serve? The military doesn't allow people to serve for both physical and psychological reasons. Are you ok with that?

Re: The General LBGTQ rights (or lack of) thread.

For those opposed to the baker being allowed to deny baking cakes, are you opposed to churches not performing a homosexual weddings? Or not performing a wedding of any kind if they don't feel it's appropriate?

Any individual that cannot perform the required duties should not be allowed to serve. To assume an entire group of people cannot preform the required duties based solely on who they are is not only stupid but irresponsible and would be harmful to the military. Not to mention the very definition of discrimination.

There have always been trans people in the military. Always. And they have served the distinction. And have died for you to have the right to hate them.

Have you bother to listen to the reaction of actual Military leaders? Or do you feel you know better than them?

Do you not know the difference between a Church and a for public business? Do you not know the difference between a private club and a for public business?

You might want to review this differences and how the law treats them.

Churches already enjoy that right. My wife is Catholic but I’m not. We couldn’t get married in a Catholic Church. My dad is a minister and while he would have performed any kind of wedding (he’s a loving and decent human being, after all) the Methodist conference wouldn’t allow him to perform same sex weddings. Churches often deny performing weddings to non-members too. This is settled and no one is really seeking to change that.

This thread is NOT ABOUT RELIGION. Take that shit over to creek's echo chamber.

Over there, you're allowed to be as wrong as you want to be.

She's right. Any discussion of religion should be taken to it's own thread. The thread Nazis that have preached consistency and staying on topic shouldn't have any problem with that.
