Let States govern themselves!


Recommended Posts

As long as it follows the constitution of a state and the federal constitution Im cool with states making their own laws.

What don't you like about the pending Arizona bill?

It says that someone opposed to jewish tradition cannot be forced to be the photographer at a jewish wedding.

It says that if someone is opposed to same-sex weddings, they cannot be forced to make a wedding cake IF they don't want to.

Do you think they should be forced to do those things, even IF they are opposed to it? :)

I think they should not refuse service because the customer is gay.

Its just a cake. its not like your condone the act. its like a gun owner not selling a rifle to a man because he is Arab.

the fact is....those queers could have went anywhere to get a cake baked. they CHOSE that certain baker simply to be antagonistic

and make a huge media ordeal out of it. like if a neo-nazi rally tried to hire a kosher delicatessen caterer to cater the nazi rally? i think the

owner of the jewish catering business should be able to refuse to do that.

...anyone agrees or not?

I agree you're an ignorant bigot. The states do govern themselves. What they cannot do is pass un Constitutional discriminatory laws. No matter what the majority want. Peoples Constitutional rights are not up for a vote, or dictated by any state.

Do you think gun shops should not sell gun to Arabs

i think a gun shop owner should have the right to refuse service to whomever he deems fit. it's not like the arab can't go to another gun shop

or order one online. if i owned a business, i feel i should be able to run my business the way i want. it's my f**king property. who the hell do you

think you are to tell me what i can think or do on my property? and if people wanna protest what i do on my property? that's cool. feel free to

protest....but don't think you should be so tyrannical that you try to force government to control MY beliefs. that's thought police $h!t.

A Arab not getting flight lessons.

Its a slippery slope.

The law invites discrimination.

who cares? i should be allowed to discriminate, if i so choose. please tell me you don't discriminate. everyone does. there's nothing inherently

wrong with discrimination.

So you think an atheist should be able to discriminate against religious people?

sure. why not? if a person doesn't want a christian on his/her property....that's his right. as a christian myself, i wouldn't

even want to step foot on that person's property...so why should i care if he bans christians? your problem is...you want the

government to actually ENFORCE laws that take away people's property rights.

It is bad for business to be anti-LGBT

is it? i don't think it is at all. but even if it is, that's the business's decision. if it's so bad for business like you say, then

their business will suffer and some pro-homo business will gain over it. so what's it to you?

glad u feel that way!! So you agree a property owner can refuse service to whom ever they wish!! No ones right are then violated. The person refused service can shop elsewhere! Glad u r on the side of liberty. For once

The law in Arizona was a preemptive thing inspired by the New Mexico case in which the photographer refused to do a gay wedding.

 

I have sympathy for the photographer, that seems like a lot more of a personal job, and his discomfort is a little more understandable.

 

 

I think if you own something like a convenient store, or a burger joint, it'd just open too big a can of worms to allow people to start discriminating.. Though from what I understand, there is no law against it in Arizona? So, people already have the right to refuse service.

 

 

A gay dieing on the street corner the ambulance driver is Christian and can't help the evil.plasd

 

 

I can imagine that, especially if the gay dude is dying of anal hemorrhaging after sticking a mason jar in there

that's the same argument Rand Paul made about minorities and civil rights act, though I think he's wised up since then.. he may have been technically correct when it comes to the Constitutionality of making a person do business with another person. But what was going on this country was so disgusting, so vile and hateful, something had to be done, and Im glad it was, Constitutional, or not. If it even gets to the point where it's like that with the gays, Id hope we can pass the same type of anti-discrimination law

that's a stupid analogy. an employee of a business cannot make judgments like that. only the owners.

 

I heard of a story of a partrol man who got fired because he refused to do security at a casino.. what if this law supported everyone's right to be conscientious objectors?

 

I think you'd agree, if it's your job, do your damn job and listen to your boss, no excuses.

i think the civil rights act was nothing but destructive for minorities and america in general. i watch this $h!t all the time in the city.

the soul food restaurant downtown hires nothing but blacks. (great fried wings, btw) all these oriental restaurants only hire slant-eyes.

i go to a mexican restaurant on the west side? nothing but hispanics work there. and it's like that in every ethnic restaurant except

for WHITE ethnic restaurants. i go to the german place downtown? all races work there. i go to the irish pub? all races work there.

i go to the british red grog joint? all races work there. i'd like to see one of those white ethnic places come out and say..."well, we

just wanna hire whites because it fits with our ethnic cuisine theme". yeah. to me? the entire "discrimination" issue is just plain hypocrisy.

our oriental restaurants hire Mexicans in Texas, get with the times!

 

 

before integration, a lot of black communities weren't so bad, they were doing well in their own little communities. Black businesses were flourishing. But, Id hate to think that was a good path forward. Even if there was some growing pains, we need to get everyone working together, so more people would have opportunities to do great things. those opportunities just weren't the same for minorities when they were cut off for all those years

lol. well, my point is...that's ok that oriental restaurants only hire orientals. if i go to a chines restaurant, i want to be waited

on by a petite little chink chick who talks pidgin. i'd rather have real mexicans making my tacos, too. i think discrimination can be

a good thing, is my point.
