To answer This Ain’t Hell’s question,
Here’s my conundrum: if it is immoral, even criminal or civilly liable for these mom-and-pop Christian businesses to deny services based on their fundamental beliefs, why is it not also immoral or legally actionable for large corporations to refuse their services to the citizens of those states where those who govern choose to pass legislation to protect the religious freedoms of their citizenry?
I didn’t like it when the Moral Majority (which was neither/1980s leftist prof) was doing it and I don’t like it now that the Immoral Minority (which is both/Veeshir) does it.
My pitch-perfect lefty brother, gay, special-ed math teacher who I wouldn’t trust to make change without a graphing calculator, told me I couldn’t make fun of that Kardashian/Jenner thing who’s trying to up the ratings on its reality-tv show, for being a “lesbian trapped in a man’s body” even though it was so incredibly and blatantly obvious a joke, because “Times have changed.”
If you can shop around until you find a bakery who won’t make a cake for your gay wedding and then sue it into bankruptcy, then I can tell you to go fuck yourself.
As for opening up bathrooms for creepy dudes in dresses, go for it. If some woman wants to take a piss in the urinal, it’s no skin off my back.
If I had a daughter I might think differently though.
Jeff Goldstein is one of the better thinkers on the ‘tubes, I mostly agree with this Trump rant except the “Fuck off” part.
Most of my friends have been lefties most of my life, if you are taken in by a huckster that’s your deal, not mine.
I will say I lost any residual respect for NY voters I had left after watching them fall in with Trump. He’s been hucking in NY for decades, they should know better.
