You want to have laws passed that force the rest of us to behave as if we buy into your bullshit, too, or allow you to discriminate against people who's personal choices you feel are "icky" because your Invisible Magic Skyman says its icky.

    So, yeah. As long as religionists want to try to inject their stupidity into my secular government, I am going to continue to mock them for their irrational, stupid beliefs.
    More bullshit. If you wanted to argue against religious freedom acts, then why didn't you do that. And you have it completely backwards. The purpose of religious freedom acts is so that people aren't forced to choose between their faith and making a living. You and your crowd are the ones who want to force your beliefs on people.
    If you want to get gay married then great. That should be the happiest day of someone's life. But instead we have people who want to use that day to force other people who don't want to be involved to participate. If you want birth control, then get all the birth control you want. But we live in a country who think that free stuff is an inalienable right and don't feel complete unless they force someone else to pay for their stuff. And for some reason, they get their rocks off making someone violate their beliefs to do it.
    And none of this has anything to do with the OP. Because there are people who are perfectly happy to pay for birth control and are thrilled with gay married who believe that God heals them.

    Trust me when I tell you that the person you have just said that to, generally wants to punch you in the face the minute those words have left your mouth. They are not comforting. They are not helpful. They come across as condescending, crass, and completely insincere. And to make matters worse, the person you just inflicted those words on is required to smile, and thank you, because they know that you think you have just been incredibly helpful, and supportive.

    Then you have very limited experience. And if that's how you react to someone trying to offer some comfort, then you're the one with a problem, not them.
    What do you want them to say? "Wow man, sucks to be you. I don't see how you can get through this. You're done for."

    This is the second time in this thread you've tried to declare yourself the winner. How insecure are you?

    Bullshit! Show me in the Bible where it says "Thou shalt not bake a cake for f*gs". It doesn't? Then you are using your beliefs to justify bigotry.

    Except that stupidity isn't comforting! That's kinda the point. I get that you think it is, but it really isn't.

    Oh now you think you can interpret Scripture for others. Who's trying to force their beliefs on other people again?

    If they are interpreting their own religion to discriminate against gay weddings, what's next if they are given free reign to decide what scripture does and doesn't mean in regards to how to treat other people who they feel violate their religion?

    But the bible does mention killing homosexuals, so I guess turning away gay couples isn't the worst thing they could do if they actually interpreted the bible literally.

    Personally, I hate it when people tell you at a funeral "If there's anything I can do, let me know." Because they never mean it. But I never make anything of it. Because I don't use grief as an excuse for an unearned sense of security. And because I don't look for excuses to be offended by things that are innocent. When people offer some comfort, what kind of person would try to throw that back at them scornfully?

    You're the bigot. You started an OP for the purpose of mocking other peoples' beliefs.
