  1. The only services that should get a religious exemption are those providing religious services. The trolley not a church. Mister Douchey-pants is not a minister. If he would like to jump through the hoops to make both of those details a reality they he can have all the exemptions his shriveled little heart desires. And a tax break. Meanwhile someone with a trolley should move to Baltimore pronto. $50K is a nice little living.

    • I don’t think I agree with your logic.

      Is it immoral to open a bar if you aren’t distilling your own alcohol, or distill alcohol but sell it wholesale so you don’t know who it goes to? What about if a man gets drunk in your bar or off your alcohol and beats his family to death? Well, it’s still his choice, and you can argue about whether it’s the barkeep, the bouncer, or the manufacturer’s fault that he drank too much, but the point is the people are still dead.

      Gays can still get married there. Easily. There are at least a few other nice spots for a wedding in Baltimore, I’m guessing. This guy is just choosing not to take any part in the process.

      I disagree with his views 100%, but I can certainly respect the way that he expresses his beliefs. He is a conscientious objector of the most noble sort – his decision involves a hefty personal cost rather than a personal gain.

  2. Sounds like this man has his deep beliefs. He’s willing to ‘walk away’ rather than be forced to alter them. That makes him a bigot? He’s not doing anything to deny ANYONE their right to get married. He just chooses not to participate. Which, asa citizen of the good ol’ USA is his right! It’s ironic that when people fight a law of the land they feel unjust, they’re called things like ‘Corageous ,Caring, Insightful, Wounderful, etc’ , but once they get the law changed, anyone who doesn’t share their opinion, is a ‘Bigot’. That word ( along with Raceism, Mysogany, Oppression) gets thrown around so frequently and easily, it’s losing it’s meaning.

  3. Re: “instead of compromising his Christian convictions”: These are not Christian convictions, and they have no biblical basis that applies to Christians. See part three, “Exegesis,” at http://reallivepreacher.com/node/868. My own Episcopal Christian church has had a homosexual bishop for years.

  4. Businesses are not people; they do not have the same rights as individual, private citizens do.

    A person may refuse to do business with blacks, or Jews, or gays; a business has no such option, and doesn’t deserve one. Businesses, such as so-called ‘Catholic hospitals’, do not enjoy freedom-of-religion protections because businesses do not have religious beliefs. PEOPLE do.
