Contrary to the headline, this ruling had little to do with the debate over "religious freedom" and discrimination. The original ruling included a comment from one of the commissioners that expressed animosity towards the baker's faith. The decision should have been made simply on what the law stated. If he had left his opinions out of it, the ruling could have been very different. But, to paraphrase SCOTUS, that is a ruling for another case.
Hey there folks. I dont know, Ive been hearing about this Ontario election for weeks, and I know how important it is to all. But youve voted, and whatever its going to be is what its going to be.
It's a fun book, you'll like it. The newer movie isn't too bad either.
To state one way or the other without taking the context of ajatnit talking about or what it teaches is just a really dumb question.....
Path? Look, you replied with some irrelevant stats (more posters) which was never a discussion between us and irrelevant to the conversation.
How about an open handed slap?
If Doug wins, those that voted for him will be the ones to suffer.
I'm sorry, do you make $500K a year? Why are you so bothered by this proposition? Does paying into a program that supports older Americans and making sure it does not go bankrupt not fit your Ayn Rand survival of the fittest (or richest) view of the world? Would you rather see a grandmother that lost her husband also lose her home because SS is bankrupt... and then maybe go back to work at McDonalds making $7 an hour because Republicans don't believe in raising the minimum wage, either?
I'm just saying, if your profession puts you in a position of conflict with the public, why should your religious belief trump the good of the public? I don't think it should, You have the choice to enter a profession that serves the public, or not, and if your religious belief conflicts with the public good, maybe you should find other employment, Not much of a belief if your desire to make money trumps your choice of a profession that your religious beliefs are suited for.
First, LeBron needs to worry about being swept. No ring for the king!
Damn! You post one thing on The Atlantic Discussions page and those mods personally invite me all over their freaking channel!
it's in most of the 600 million Pentecostals in the earth at this present moment.. We are witnesses of the Resurrection being that the Same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, dwells in us, and shall quicken our mortal bodies, producing in us Godliness and every fruit of the Spirit , which is pleasing to God himself...
Ideally, they would already be in jail. If they are wanted for arrest and encounter a authority figure, they should be arrested.
SoS. I think that any reasoning oerson that enjoys debate knows that
Not me, not yet. I like to wait till a series is over or almost so I can binge watch it till the end. This one is on my list.
So now Labron and Curry think they speak for everyone else?
Okay that is quite fallacious enough right there. Thank you Logic Killer. Jumping to a conclusion that there was some kind of beginning. Modern cosmology is fluid but right now it says no, the mass/energy that comprises the universe has always existed in some form. Steeeerike One. Try another?
There is no evidence to support that people are born gay.
Yea, here we go with this again.
Spunky? Or spunk?
So you are still blaming a recession that ended 5 month's after Obama took office for his TERRIBLE economic record? LOL
Hehe. Nice.^ I understand that speaking out against the Prophet would be considered blasphemy and could get you in real trouble in some Islamic based countries. Isn't that quite a bit like being accused in an oppressive political based country of being "treasonous" or "seditious" or something ? Its true that folks are not hauled away in the night at the same rate as previously for speaking out against the great leader, however. That constitutes growth. Things are getting better. And the continence of the Russia people has been rising. [Don't worry, we will all work through these temporary misunderstandings and the like.^] But it is also rising, I would argue, in far flung Muslim countries around the world who have been maturing and prospering, especially over the past 20 years.
