Reread my post. As I said, there is nothing wrong with the OP having an opinion about gays and interracial couples. He certainly has a right to view them as morally wrong if that's what he believes. Others also have the same right to see his views as narrow minded and bigoted. Why must his opinion and his right to believe what he believes be deemed acceptable, but anyone who disagrees with him not afforded the same right?

If you're the wedding photographer, simply "forget" to answer their phone calls or e-mails. If you're their boss, you can look for little things like how they clocked in 5 minutes late that time or saw them checking Facebook on company time.

The dumbest thing from the business's point of view is to "face the law". You really have the money and time to fight a lawsuit that you will probably lose?
Things like photography takes talent.

I would not want my important events recorded in pictures from someone that 100% is invested in the job.

I would want their best.

I feel that interracial marriage/interracial children destroy history and culture of the unique people on our planet. Don't me wrong - I don't wish biracial people any ill or anything of that sort. I wish them well just as with everyone else. But they tend to be confused individuals who don't really know what they want. It is natural/genetic to want to be around people that look/act like you, hence why I don't agree with miscegenation. I just don't think it is natural. It is not what God intended in my opinion.

The funny thing is that Arab Muslims in particular frown upon (some go to extreme lengths to make sure it doesn't happen) their own marrying externally and no one says anything about that.

"Have the right to call you".

You feel you have the right to call other names......and you do.

But, IMO.....the name calling is intolerant.

Now.....notice I did not call YOU "intolerant"......just the name calling.

Like I mentioned before, I don't care about who a person sleeps with. It's not my business. I'm just saying on a moral level, I don't agree with the concept of homosexuality/miscegenation.

OK....now you are changing the subject.

I agreed with your first post.

Now you have an agenda.

That is to bad you had to go there.

Default Being against homosexuality and interracial relationships is my right

If I see a gay or interracial couple in the street, I don't give them a mean stare or special attention - I pass them as I would any other person. I don't go on crusades, blasting them. I pretty much keep it to myself unless people directly ask, and then I reveal what I think. Why do some people, particularly liberals, always feel the need to be outraged when I reveal my views on the topic? Sometimes it is as if I just beheaded a baby. I'm not hurting anyone - I don't heckle or hurl verbal abuse towards gays or interracial couples. I just don't agree with them. What's so wrong about that? It's my right.
There is nothing wrong with you, I feel the same way. If a television program comes on with either of the above happening, I turn off the channel.
If pressed for an answer, I will state my views. Experience tells me , most who disagree get angry and wish to argue. If asked, I don't argue, I just
try to change the subject. This country is a nation of laws, and one of the most important is freedom of speech. PC is only an attempt to limit free
speech, and that is why PC is so wrong. Truth is more important than feelings. When it get to the point that we are afraid to state our views, and
beliefs, there is no freedom.

You may call me "bigoted," but I still have a right to my views. My point is I'm not hurting anyone - the way liberals react you would think I physically assaulted someone.

Seems though that liberals are choosing to create fights and demand more right than those that had earned the respect of others.
Some one learned the squeaky wheel get's their way, even if it is corruptive, and it has generated into every liberal agenda.
I had been violated by gay in the past ,mostly on the east coast . I had hitch hiked across country and it seemed that because I was from California I would naturally accept these assaults to my body by strangers, which I did not .
I was literally being forced on, by these people ,it was disturbing and revolting.
Now it seems that they have forced their way into society and corrupting every aspect possible. The are not earning their way they are forcing it.
