I'm happy whenever discrimination against people who are causing no harm ends.
DJS, you have a dog in this fight. I do not. When did religion push government to do their job and put gays in jail in the US for their "crimes?" I remember though watching on tv, a while back, "Christian" religion endorsing the execution of gays in other countries. JW would never try to prevent gays from getting married or to have them jailed or executed.
You see Davis' action as gay "discrimination" because she discriminated by not giving licenses to gays, a very recent legal provision. But only about 69 days ago, the US government discriminated against gays . That discrimination was the law of the land (in some states it was ok)
I have already posted that people should not use religion as an excuse for not doing their job, but in all fairness, that should apply to everyone.
It is a circuitous tactic to get her for contempt, but not for refusing to endorse gay marriages-they couldn't, so they used the catch-all device.
Did not know you were a dub. I am not a fundie. JW are not fundies. I told you it is not about gay rights. Who am I to try to prevent others from being happy. When people's actions to themselves offend me. I do not hate them. I feel hurt. Same as I would if it was a son or someone that I loved. If it was my son though I would try to stop him but not someone else. I would not stop someone from being happy--Unless their actions were harming me, like rights to smoke in a public place and I had to breath their smoke.
