i thought it was accepted that if an owner of their own company did not feel comfortable serving someone they had the right to say so and act upon it. this gay couple could have went anywhere else instead of being so stubborn but with the culture today they knew they would have a backing. if a homosexual couple owned a bakery and refused to make a straight cake no one would care. why? because that is what we see as normal nowadays. really messed up and disgusting if you ask me. where is our freedom? all these people stepping down from positions of power as well, just as soon as allegations of rape come up. the only backbone left is the spirit of President Trump and the proud Americans who stand tall behind him. all the others can go live in democratic disguised communist china, or go over to democratic socialist countries in europe. America is for the free, not the equal except equality in our bill of rights.

Free country my ass. And i don't mean free country my ass as in no gay or lesbian freedoms and SJW. I mean free county my ass as in you can't freely get away from these fuckers and ignore them if you don't want to be around them and don't agree with their point of views. Simply get out of the shop i don't want to serve you two homos.

What's the problem? If it was a liberal cookie palace they'd refuse service to police and straight white males who have their shit together. But they wouldn't have to pay a fine would they? Not that they could afford it anyway.

This place should tell them to fuck off and make a huge deal out of being asked to pay and call it a breach of free speech. Maybe there will be enough outreach to the top and Trump will get involved and give them a pass like they did to Lavar Ball's son when he was caught STEALING in China. Funny how a Republican hard working business can get fined 135k but a teenage thug can steal designer and then bash the president and be praised and let free.

And in Colorado:

"Ironically, Colorado bakers who are gay are allowed to refuse service to Christians. In April 2015, the Civil Rights Division of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies ruled Azucar Bakery in Denver did not violate the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act when owner Marjorie Silva refused to bake a cake decorated with Bible verses about sin and homosexuality."

Supreme Court Reverses Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission

Posted on 6/4/2018, 10:17:18 AM by CFW

"Whatever the confluence of speech and free exercise principles might be in some cases, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's consideration of this case was inconsistent with the State's obligation of religious neutrality. The reason and motive for the baker's refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory on narrow grounds to a Colorado Christian baker who refused for religious reasons to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, stopping short of setting a major precedent allowing people to claim exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on religious beliefs.

The justices, in a 7-2 decision, said the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed an impermissible hostility toward religion when it found that baker Jack Phillips violated the state's anti-discrimination law by rebuffing gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012. The state law bars businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.

The ruling concluded that the commission violated Phillips' religious rights under the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment.

Two of the court's four liberals, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, joined the five conservative justices in the ruling

Listened to Shapiro's podcast today on this and (if correct) its a win but not an overwhelming one after hearing why the decision was made. More so based off of how the baker was treated/time period and not free enterprise/religious rights, etc. Believe Thomas and Gorsuch wrote their thoughts on it and both where not in line with how the conclusion was reached even though it was the correct conclusion so this may not be a complete victory.

 ;) If it said narrow decision, then the number of judges on each side would matter. If it said narrow grounds, the number of judges would be unimportant, the decision to vote one way of the other would be closely weighted. Since it says grounds and not decision, it's not a contradiction nor is it MSM math.

Still, they should have worded it differently because the media did make it sound like it some kind of 5-4 decision.

Here is the irony.. Jesus spoke about people who divorced and remarried. He said that if you divorced and remarried. You are committing adultery and the person you marry is committing adultery and adulterers will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Why would a baker be more appalled by something in the old testament that Jesus never speaks of, but ignores an obvious affront to Jesus and God from the New Testament? Jesus' only exception to this was adultery. You could divorce for adultery.

Wrong.  He spoke to one person trying to set him up with a stupid question. 

It's not your place to decide whether something violates someone's conscience. 

Since you are so obsessed with the Bible, which is really weird for an atheist, you should go focus on what the Bible says about judging people.

You probably are misreading the judging quote anyway.  And I'm not wrong. Read it for yourself.

Sermon on the mount.. in this instance, there were no questions, he did a monologue of rules.

Matthew 5-32  " It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery."

I don't know about that.  I've said the gay lobby is the most powerful lobby I've ever seen, given how small the gay population is what they have accomplished in such a short period of time.  We have not only turned the corner as a society on things like gay marriage, etc., people cannot even joke about anything gay.  Any negative or perceived negative comment results in people getting fired.  They are going after pastors and anyone else who has a faith-based belief as bigots engaging in hate speech.  I'm not sure any other minority group gets as much protection at this point.

I know, but I feel like the political correctness and social acceptance of everything queer being shoved down our throats (I know) is wearing itself out slowly and society as a whole will right itself and trend away from what has become "normal".

My statement still stands. Christian or not, divorce is and always will be, more acceptable in society than homosexuality.

It is more acceptable, but it shouldn't be for Christians.

BS.  

Not really., in the Sermon on the mount, Jesus doesn't pull any punches. If you divorce for any reason other than adultery, and you remarry, you are committing adultery. No ifs ands or butts. I can also pull of the section where he says adulterers will NOT go to heaven. So only in Christians minds, mostly those who haven't even read their religious book, they think homosexuality is a worse sin than what probably 60% or better of what the "good" christians are doing. If you want to argue homosexuals will go to a "more worser"  ;) hell than a person who has divorced and remarried for any reason other than adultery, then you aren't very knowledgeable about the bible.  

The reason I know more about the bible is that for 25 or more years I studied it as a believer. I actually read it.

Here is the irony.. Jesus spoke about people who divorced and remarried. He said that if you divorced and remarried. You are committing adultery and the person you marry is committing adultery and adulterers will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Why would a baker be more appalled by something in the old testament that Jesus never speaks of, but ignores an obvious affront to Jesus and God from the New Testament? Jesus' only exception to this was adultery. You could divorce for adultery.

While this part of scripture is true, acceptions can be made according to scripture that in certain cases divorce is allowed such as hard heart or sexual immorality. A lot Athiests like to use that quote of scripture like you just used as some kind of a "gotcha" when a Christian gets a divorce. I went through it with morons on here when I went through mine and before I divorced I sought out my pastor.

Matthew 5-31  

It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Mark 10-2

Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 “What did Moses command you?” he replied. 4 They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away.” 5 “It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied. 6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.’So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. 11 He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”

Luke 16-8

Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Romans 7`2

For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. 3 So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.

Mathew 19-8 speaks of the hard heart coach mistakes as a reason. That was under Moses' law. Jesus changed it with

 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

Maybe they weren't the morons you thought they were...  ;)

You can read something all you want, but if you don't understand it then its kind of pointless. You have shown countless times that you have a very shallow understanding of the Bible. This is just another example.

Yep, you are committing adultery. Not perpetually though, lol. This is why you don't cherry pick and look to other verses where it is clear that the act of remarriage is an act of adultery. They have a duty to repent as with any sin and it is forgiven. An unrepentant adulterer, murderer, etc. wallowing in their sins will clearly not go to heaven.

They aren't "doing" it if they repented. They "did" it. Murderers can go to heaven. Paul was a very, very wicked man before his conversion and killed people. Yet, he repented (turned from his ways) and clearly went to Heaven.

You are essentially claiming that those who ask for forgiveness, repent, and mean it are still bound to Hell because of a past offense. Contrary to the whole of Scripture.

I have no idea what sort of "Christians" you hang out with. They seem very odd.

Basic stuff here for someone who feels the need to brag about knowing about the Bible yet clearly does not.

Thanks for joining the discussion. I'll be happy to address your contention.

I have listed out numerous scriptures, quoting Jesus word for word. Anyone will any intellectual integrity would have to conclude what I stated is correct. Ok, you agree you are committing adultery. Your position is you are just committing adultery on the day you are married? But if you ask forgiveness, then it wipes out every day after that as adultery? Yet a person is homosexual, asks forgiveness for any sins, and they are somehow to be held to a higher standard than the heterosexual. It's a ludicrous argument not supported in scripture. They are essentially committing adultery every time they have sex unless you can supply a mulligan scripture. But be careful, any loophole you produce will likely apply to homosexuals. My point which I have clearly set out for you is the bakery, if they are not going to bake a cake for homosexuals due to their religion, should not bake a cake for anyone who is divorced and remarried unless they are offered proof it was for adultery. That's consistent, but christians tend to be a little hypocritical about sins they are committing.

Yes.  Exactly. 

You also have to use common sense.  No, Christians aren't required to stay married and only divorce if there is adultery.  That would mean a battered spouse would be unable to divorce their spouse without sinning.  That's retarded. 

And Agnostic if you actually understand that 25 years of Bible study, you would know that you cannot determine what is in a person's heart and shouldn't be judging people.

No, using common sense isn't about feeling a certain way. 

Regarding judging, no. 1, you are being incredibly judgmental and whether the baker is too has absolutely nothing to do with you constantly trying to talk like you know what's in a person's heart. 

No. 2, no the baker refusing to violate his conscience isn't him passing judgment on someone else.  That makes no sense.

Since you're the one insulting me for no reason, you're the one with your panties in a twist, likely because of this Supreme Court decision, which is a defeat to liberals and a victory to conservatives.  Then again, you're angry all the time.  So who knows?

IF you are arguing that Jesus was against homosexuality, I'm not arguing that. I understand Jesus thought men shouldn't be with men. Women shouldn't be with women, though he probably wasn't as appalled by that.. My point which is still correct, is that Jesus DID speak of marrying after divorce for any reason other than adultery, would be a no no. He took the time to address that so it must have been important. What happens is, most Christians, not all, are good with the homosexual is a no no rule. What they don't like is being told their 2, 3rd or 4th marriage could also be a no no. No no's (sin) is bad. Just like Christians who demand or insist on praying at public secular events ignore Jesus' teachings on that in Matthew 6:5. They follow the rules they like and pretend the others don't exist. Typical conversation

Me:  Divorcing and remarrying for any reason other than infidelity causes the persons to be adulterers and adulterers are on the list of people who won't get into heaven according to Jesus

Them: No, that's not true.

Me: {Providing half a dozen specific scriptures that say exactly that}

Them- Well I think...

Me- No, what you think is wrong, the bible clearly says as I pointed out what is true

Them- You don't understand, you're just stupid

So refusal of service on any grounds is automatically discrimination?

I gave you multiple scriptures.. you gave me "I don't think thats the way it should be" and then you accuse me of being wrong, without providing anything to support your contention other than.. guess what....your opinion that I'm wrong. Don't worry, lots of Christians who don't know the bible do the same thing. you are no different. While I would love to say "I don't think God would send someone to hell just for not believing Jesus died on the cross etc etc... because honestly, it sounds like an asshole move... thats exactly what the bible says. Christians hate when they are faced with what the bible actually says vs what they thought it said. Do yourself a favor... read it sometime.

Unlike you, I don't have a need to be right.  And I have experienced your kind many times.  You are full of crap.  You don't care about the Bible, Jesus, Christianity, etc.  You just want to try and belittle something you don't even believe in. 

You are pretty thick headed so I know you will still not get this, but quoting scriptures doesn't prove anything.  Context is everything.  Common sense is vital.  But drive on with your attempts to try and show how superior you are when it comes to a book that you believe is a fairy tale.  lol

Their Shop / Business of course they should be able to turn away / refuse business.
It happens to me & everyone at times - nope not nice just part of life & dealing with
Different people & there opinions & ideals.

A person that believes in an America where people can't discriminate against others based on stupid criteria like color of skin or sexual preference. Just my opinion...

And likes / dislikes of each other based on looks / religion / color / height / weight / queers / faggotts /  hair styles / style of dress / rich / poor etc etc is always going to happen just as it always has.

Post by: mazrim on June 08, 2018, 01:24:24 PM
Thanks for joining the discussion. I'll be happy to address your contention.

I have listed out numerous scriptures, quoting Jesus word for word. Anyone will any intellectual integrity would have to conclude what I stated is correct. Ok, you agree you are committing adultery. Your position is you are just committing adultery on the day you are married? But if you ask forgiveness, then it wipes out every day after that as adultery? Yet a person is homosexual, asks forgiveness for any sins, and they are somehow to be held to a higher standard than the heterosexual. It's a ludicrous argument not supported in scripture. They are essentially committing adultery every time they have sex unless you can supply a mulligan scripture. But be careful, any loophole you produce will likely apply to homosexuals. My point which I have clearly set out for you is the bakery, if they are not going to bake a cake for homosexuals due to their religion, should not bake a cake for anyone who is divorced and remarried unless they are offered proof it was for adultery. That's consistent, but christians tend to be a little hypocritical about sins they are committing.  

You really need verses from the Bible on whether a sin that is repented for causes you to be damned to eternal Hell? No, you don't. You are simply deflecting/being a troll. If you really do then you need to read the Bible a bit more and not contend that you know so much about it. You ignored answering this in your reply as to how you reconcile your belief with what Scripture says on sin,forgiveness, etc. I have reconciled my belief and it is a much more logical conclusion.

It is very simple to see that your BELIEF as to what those verses mean/conclusion you have made is completely contradictory to the rest of Scripture therefore what you believe it to be saying is wrong when taken into context (as Dos Equis pointed out).

Who is saying that a homosexual is damned to Hell if they repent from their sins/turn from their ways? That argument is yours. Not mine. If they continue unrepentantly in their ways then of course they are most likely not a Christian (just as someone who continues to murder unrepentantly, commit adultery unrepentantly, etc.) and will not be going to Heaven.

Deuteronomy 24:1-4 is just one of your "mulligan"s, btw. The second marriage is as binding as the first. In order to avoid committing adultery again they must remain faithful in their new marriage after repentance.

Can't believe that that murdering/adulterous David went to Hell. No idea why he is "a man after God's own heart" knowing this enlightening fact that you have discovered which belies every Biblical scholar.

You are claiming that a person must commit another sin (divorce) in order to be cleansed from the first sin (divorce/adultery). God does not work that way and this is supported no where. That is like claiming that a murderer must commit another murder (or suicide) to be forgiven from the first. Ludicrous thought pattern.

Not going to try that hard to convince you as if you truly wanted the answers they are right there for you to see/research. Also, you don't seem to be the type to really want to see beyond what you have convinced yourself of judging by your forum name.Your heart is hard.



Your last point is more thought provoking/what you should stick with in this argument(why are they baking cakes for something else that is clearly a sin according to the Bible) but my contention is with your conclusion on adultery and what I had replied to originally I believe.

I will refrain from making disparaging remarks about you are your position because it brings nothing positive to the table. I will just say that once again, you are arguing from a position of what you think should be in the bible, or what you think should happen. I have supplied ample scripture (which is the way most people would debate a biblical point) that supports my position. To sum it up, remarrying after divorce for any reason other than adultery is a sin. Homosexuality is a sin. Christians, if they are going to refuse one due to their religion, should be consistent.

And actually, just so others are not swayed by your lies "remarrying after divorce for any other reason other then adultery is a sin." You must have skipped I Cor. 7:14-16 in your pouring over the Scriptures.

5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’?

Again.. the argument wasn't that the bible considers homosexuality a sin. But that it also considers divorce and remarrying a sin, and being consistent with your values should be important

Not what this case is about, not what this Supreme court decision is about, and not what this thread is about.

You could start your own thread in the religion board about being consistent with your values.

Fair enough. I thought the conversation evolved in this direction. I'll leave it alone

answer this question and I will expend time and effort giving your post the time it would deserve

If a baker without asking any questions of their customers refuses to bake a cake for 2 people who are homosexual, and bakes a cake for 2 people on their 5th marriage, are they within the teachings of Christ?   



It's about freewill as well. I know they said religion but maybe they were just disgusted or maybe they saw that they were being put in a trap due to their beliefs or reputation(as was the case).

The stance on this case could very well identify if you are a statist/socialist or not...

If they refused for the same reason, I don't see why not.
