Commenting on story “Arizona Supreme Court Rules Christian Artists Cannot Be Forced to Make Same-Sex Wedding Invitations in 4-3 Decision”
It's important to note that the Court didn't invalidate Phoenix's anti-discrimination law, including the portion which includes LGBT people as a protected class. It's also worth noting that Brush and Nib lost in Superior court, as well as the appellate court. Obviously, their luck changed here. I wonder what other clients they deem unworthy of their services, and how they make that determination. I'm actually surprised this case was heard at any level since I don't believe Brush and Nib actually turned any prospective gay customers away. As I understand it, in order to have standing to sue, It you usually have to show you've been harmed, not that you might be harmed in the future.
"I wonder what other clients they deem unworthy of their services..."
Why do you do that?
I would think it's obvious. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski have invited the public to purchase certain services and claim providing those services to a hypothetical same-sex couple would violate their religious values. As a result, they want to be exempt from following a law everyone else must follow. I just wonder if there are other couples who don't meet their standards. Inter-racial couples? Couples in which one is divorced? Or is it just money from the LGBTQ community that's too dirty for them?
"Or is it just money from the LGBTQ community that's too dirty for them?"
Again I ask, why do you do that?
My comments speak for themselves.
I didn't ask you what you said. I asked you why you said it. What's your purpose?
Your posts are deceitful. Based on lies. Can you explain why?
These ladies refuse to use their artistic talent to promote wickedness.
That's the truth.
You PRETEND that it's about something else. You people say it's about hate, and bigotry, when the truth is that it's about right vs wrong, good vs evil, your side being the evil.
That's the lies. Now tell me what your purpose is for telling them HERE. That's all I asked you.
I live at a most fortunate time for the LGBTQ community. For a very long time, and as many other unfarily marginalized groups have done, we've had to either live in the shadows, or pay a very steep price for pretending to be someone we're not. The fact that those days are fading is the very opposite of evil. Of course, I know that you disagree with every syllable I've just written. In fact, I'm not at all sure you even consider LGBTQ people human. I also know I'm pretty much the last person from whom you'd ever take advice, but I'm going to give you some: if you actually want someone to carefully consider what you have to say, I'd avoid calling him or her an evil liar.
I didn't call you anything, and of course I think you're human, and my heart is broken for you.
And yes, I do disagree with everything you said, as it is all based on lies.
And no, I'm not taking advice from you. You need to take mine.
You are lost in darkness. This whole world is in open rebellion against Almighty God, and will soon be judged. You are not gay; you've bought Satan's lies.
Not every desire, or feeling we have is good, or right. That's just plain common sense.
You are alienated from the Light, which is God, by your sin, and desire for falsehood. Christ died to remove your sins, so that you can be reconciled to God, who is Light, and Life. If you confess your sins, and receive Christ, it will transform you. That's what I want for you. That's my purpose for commenting on these boards. What's yours?
