Same-sex couple in SCOTUS discrimination case says fight for rights 'going to continue'
By Karma Allen

“We remain hopeful. And throughout this journey, we have heard so many stories about people and their discrimination and part of the reason, you know, that we decided to follow this through is for our community,” Craig said in an interview with ABC affiliate KMGH on Monday. “That's not going to change.”
“Life as a gay man has its own unique challenges and that's not going to change, but you know, the fight's going to continue,” Craig said. “I feel like, that has been a victory for us, that just getting a national dialogue and helping change the public opinion about civil rights laws is a big win for us.”






====================================================

No one said it would be easy but their continuing fight is right and just because it is a case of people taking too much liberty in denying service unto others by claiming religious feelings when the underlying reason is that they simply don't like the LGBT Community. The courts will thus be mega-loaded with similar cases if businesses are allowed to continue making claims in that vein as anyone will then be able to claim the same thing just to get out of serving those whom they don't like for whatever reason.

The latest report on national news showed that now 81% of Americans indicate that Gays and Lesbians should be allowed to be served by businesses. That is right and just as to deny those American Citizens from being served creates a great injustice with great prejudice, bigotry and discrimination that must not continue to be tolerated.

The Internet Responds To Supreme Court's Colorado Baker Ruling

Because some on the right are rejoicing over the recent SCOTUS decision regarding the baker it should also be of interest to learn what those most affected have to say.




====================================================​
The Internet Responds To Supreme Court's Colorado Baker Ruling


"While the court sided in a narrow ruling that Colorado's Civil Rights Commission handled their decision against baker Jack Phillips in a sloppy manner, it did not set precedent for "legal discrimination" against LGBTs."
"Plus, there was a lot of support out there on the interwebs for our community."

Of course it is going to continue. From what I read, this decision was not based on whether homosexuals have fewer rights than Christians, but about how a single person on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission spoke out of turn (in what was believed by some SC Justices to be discriminatory and inconsistent) and was determined to have possibly tainted the decision by that commission. Time to go back and start over or anew, just don't let two wrongs, make a right, is what I got.

Justice Kennedy even stated that Colorado law has every right to protect homosexuals from unequal protection (treatment) with regard to not being refused services based on their being homosexual, the same reasoning that says businesses cannot put a "no homosexuals" sign on the door or on ads for their businesses anymore than they could put a "no blacks" sign on the door or on their adverts.


All any court has to do is ask "believers" what scripture that are basing their "beliefs" on and their actions and ask them how they square with other scripture, found in Matthew 5 as well as scripture where Christ invited anyone who was without their own sins, to be the first to cast stones at other sinners. The court should perhaps also look for consistency in belief and if homosexuality is something that is cherry picked from all the other sins that the bakers should also be applying their beliefs to, in the same manner.

They are not fighting for rights they are fighting to impose their morality on others.

It does not matter if you like LGBT or not you have a right not to like them and a private business is not a public accommodation and can refuse service to whomever they wish.

If you're talking about the LGBT Community, Nope.They have no Equal Rights and Protections as others have that are seriously needed in that community and that is what they will continue to fight for long and hard. If you are talking about the radical right-wingers then you would be Very Correct!

It does not matter if you like LGBT or not you have a right not to like them and a private business is not a public accommodation and can refuse service to whomever they wish.
Haters will thus continue to HATE.

Homosexuals have the same rights as any human being that is equally as civil as anyone else, just the same as black folks have a right to come to a cake shop and not see a sign that says "whites only". You're advocating for something that the Christian Bible teaches the opposite of. You're arguing that someone who advertises to the generally public should be able to put a sign on their door and a note in their advertising that says, "no homosexuals allowed" or "we don't serve homosexuals".

The basis of that would be what? What specific scripture precisely specifies that and teaches that and is homosexuality the only activity and characteristic considered to be sinful? If President Trump showed up at the same bakery, would the baker still apply their "beliefs" in a manner consistent to their reasons for refusing to bake/decorate a cake for homosexuals? Would you deny that both divorce and adultery are specifically prohibited by Christian teaching, as much or more than specific scripture that points to homosexuality, much less homosexual marriage?
