Would gay bakers refuse a heterosexual cake supporting the legal marriage of man and wife?

It was rhetorical.

This case started back in 2012, so "year" of the gay is a bit off

It's a toughie, 'cause it's not just "refusing to sell a cake". It's refusing to put a particular message on the cake. It's closer to a newspaper or magazine turning down an advertisement that disagreed with their editorial policy.

iirc there was another bakery case not long ago that got spun into a big hoo-ha about "reeee muh right to refuse service" in the media and it turned out that the case wasn't about the bakers refusing to make a cake at all, it was a harassment case because the bakers doxed the couple on facebook and tried to get them run out of town for being gay, which is a little bit more clear cut than "they wouldn't make us a cake"

Technically a business can refuse service to someone without giving a reason and in most cases it's kosher

Ironically if they didn't give a reason they'd probably be fine

tbh it's just drama stirring for the sake of drama and it's why I refuse to be in any of the LGBTABCWXYZ-or-whatever communities because they're drama cesspools

Not sure if these lawmakers actually believe in his bullshit, or if they just want to create a controversy. If anyone Moon Jae-in deserves the price for keeping his head cool while Trump was spouting bile on Twitter and trying to keep communications open with the north.

Then again Obama won it in his first year before having proven anything, and Aung San Suu Kyi won it and later became responsible for a genocide. So maybe attacking free speech and the judicial power in his own country and threatening to start a nuclear war won't stand in Trump's way of winning.

Meanwhile there's still no Nobel price for computing science.

Double negative, if you're criticizing Trump for recieving a Nobel peace prize but in the same breath devalue its worth by noting people who received it for even less or questionable contribution than him then what actual reason do you have to be mad about it other than to slam Drumpf for being Drumpf?

Fun fact- The nobel prizes aren't based on merit, they're based on whoever is popular in a field as decided by a bunch of old guys with specific opinions.
This is tradition for it, going back all the way to Mr Nobel, who decided to just award his friends and people he liked.
There is no real criteria for them, just as long as the committee that decides who gets a prize believes you should get one.

But that said, I hope he gets one just so the clownshow can continue. Honk honk

I remember during the last campaign when trump supporters were trumpeting the black support demonstrated by Blacks For Trump

Nobel was the inventor of tnt, the peace prize came about as they thought that such destructive power would bring an end to war.

I suppose they weren't wrong though, just several decades too early and the wrong big stick.

So trump getting one for threatening to nuke the yellow monkeys isn't out of the ordinary

Apparently you're more likely to survive a gun shot than a stab wound.

That's probably low cal pistols and not high power rifles I'd guess

Guns are pretty easy to make with the right know-how but knives are literally impossible to ban. They're as low tech as low tech can be, they're one step above hitting someone with a rock (hitting them with a sharp rock). I have no idea how you clowns think that it would ever work.

When statements are loosely thrown out like that there's little credibility that either is accurate. Its only up to you to determine and see the truth for what it is but i don't live close enough to the USA to be able to make a assessment.

Thats also the reasoning people from the hood use for why they have guns even if theyre on parole.

Best to be caught with it than without it.

Which one is true


Except I never said the latter did I? I don't think everyone will get shot if we guns were easily available.

Just roughly 4x the current number of people would get shot and children getting shot up in their schools would become a regular news coverage.

I mean we haven't had a school shooting in over two decades now.

You don't need stainless steel to make a knife big guy. You can sharpen a piece of garbage scrap metal into a knife using just basic equipment and knowledge. Or anything else for that matter, a shank can be made out of any sharp material that can hold its shape long enough to stab someone at least once.

If you can only stab once that isn't as bad as being able to shoot a classroom full of people.

Bravo, you've made it impossible to enforce any law with that logic.

I feel you're putting gang members on too high a pedestal if you think the people who'll stab a man on the regular are the same as the people who have the money let alone the skills to do metal and wood working.

Sorry it's their tradition and stopping it would be culturally insensitive.

Criminals already make homemade machetes from sheet metal and an angle grinder

You're arguing in favor of trying to regulate something that people in fucking PRISONS find ways to make. You don't need to go anywhere near the lengths that dude in the video went, all you need is a sharp edge/point and a decent grip like a sock and bam you have a weapon that can kill several people. Are you REALLY prepared to give up all the personal liberties it would take in order for the UK to try and regulate something as tightly as a prison?

The number of shooting deaths is overwhelmingly from suicides and inner city gangsters killing other gangsters. Mass shootings make up an entirely insignificant amount of total shooting deaths, the only reason people talk about them is because the media fucking won't shut up about them and it's an excellent talking point for anti-gun campaigners.
