    I love how conservatives would use this example for bakers . . . people who sell fried doughballs drizzled with icing.

    Hmmmmm, fried dough . . . .

    Do Not Judge: MATTHEW 7:1-2
    1″Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2″For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.…

    • Yes. So we should go ahead and provide services for gay weddings. Because of the exact scriptures you just posted. Thanks!

    And don’t hang out with prostitutes, lepers and tax collectors….Oh, wait. …

    This makes actual sense. The congruence!

  • Is that Rick Warren?

    • Lars

      I thought that same thing immediately! Too much of a coincidence in my opinion.

    this is ignorance is what it is

    • Please stop trolling. If you want to engage in conversation, use full sentences and make arguments.

        What this here is, is ignorance. And I am only seen as trolling to those who do not want to hear truth. It is not right to deny service to anyone based on their sins or their religion. But to make fun of sin to try to make another sin acceptable, is ignorance. All sin is to be rejected and spoken against. And if a person chooses a life of sin then that is on them. However, don’t promote the ignorance.

        • Your sinful bigotry towards people made in the image of God, your promotion of ignorance about the Bible, and your self-righteousness are all sins. But sinners are welcome here. Trolls, however, are not. You seem unwilling to discuss what the Bible actually says, and simply respond the same way no matter what anyone writes. If you decide you are willing to actually talk about things and to behave in a Christian manner here, let me know and I will give you another chance.

        • IMO, The point the cartoonist is trying to make is that this rule is a knife that can cut both ways. One person can say “I won’t do business with {fitb} because I don’t are with their sinful lifestyle” if that is the case then what happens when someone else disagrees with some aspect of their lives? Organized discrimination can cut both ways.

    Any other opinion than the collective opinion of the majority will not be tolerated.

    • The majority of people do not accept scholarship. Claiming otherwise is quite bizarre. No one is claiming here that the majority must be right about any particular subject. Why do you refuse to discuss the substantive points?

    • Oh, opinions are like anuses – everyone’s got one, but don’t expect people to clap when they hear from them.
      Any action that discriminates unfairly? That I don’t think we tolerate. Or should. There was a war about that.

    Setting aside the fact that culture warriors seem completely blind to that one, isn’t it interesting that we make never make excuses for the poor’s “freedom”? I can’t imagine anyone thinking a fast-food worker has the right to refuse service over any believed sin at all.

    I was hoping to see a bible in the customer’s hands, would that be asking to much ?
