selling overpriced housewares and clothing to the public does not require you sell out your religious beliefs. So of course you will assist EVERYONE. Comparing that to the florist situation shows your total lack of understanding of the argument.
Requiring her to take part in arranging flowers for that wedding is like requiring every doctor to perform abortions when asked.
Not that the jobs are equally important, but that both would require the person to do something against their beliefs.
why do you feel it is ok to try to force someone into doing something that goes against their own beliefs??
By the way, we don't see things the same way, but I am much less a bigot then you.
You see this whole thing as gay vs straight, I see it as a business person not wanting to participate(arranging flowers at the location) in a ceremony that goes against her beliefs. Its nothing less- nothing more
SB 5927 would allow any person on religious or deep convictions of belief an out to deny services to another person or business. Of course, it is really to discriminate against homosexuals.
kev, i am starting to see where your problem is, Its your attitude. " Of course its really to discriminate" see I thought it had to do with respecting a persons religious or deep convictions and moral upbringing.
You try to make it sound like her refusal to participate sent him into some kind of total emotional brake down, humiliated, really? I think not. Your just trying to pull on peoples sympathy for support.
but apparently the flower shop lady, has no rights to live her life by her religious beliefs, huh kevin??
Just because a person opens a business, shouldn't mean they should have to abandon their religious beliefs and moral convictions.
"I hold no ill will toward the florist. We are both Christians and I understand deeply held convictions" No, i don't think you do. You don't understand HER deeply held convictions, just yours.
Bruce, get a grip
More money is not the answer, To find the answer, The teachers union simply needs to look in the mirror.
this would be a good time for conrado c. to step down also, since he misses so many meetings
He and Conrado c. both missed way too many meetings. Both should stay out.
To the contrary, I think Obama has been amazingly race-neutral during his time in office.
you can't be that blind or stupid, can you???
6 percent!!! Wow, when the tax payer is footing the bill, the sky is the limit.

"Gay swipe ignites local fury"
Also, Sheila, way to sensationalize a story that is not even a story. Things must be slow for the UB.
