Bingo! Want to run a business then follow the laws or pay the price. Seems like some want to pick and chose which laws they will follow, life is full of choices and consequences.

Now we pay the price of the consequences of a small minority that society has not historically chosen as a normal part of it.

Well, gee, wow, we have a President who picks and chooses which laws to enforce!

The First Amendment guarantees the free exercise of religion. Or haven't you read it? Nowhere does it say, "except if you are running a business."

You will be paying no price and guess what, gays have been part of society since society existed.

And you whine about it continuously.

Yes it does and express it all you wish, bit when you run a Business (not a religion) you must follow the law. Strange that you hate it when you claim someone is not following the law but then want to ignore the law when it fits you agenda, sounds like that good old double standard again, or do you not understand that?

Freedom of religion has limits. If the religion allows someone to act outside of the law, it's still illegal. This is why you can't cut someone's hands off if they steal from you or stone a victim of rape to death because they're not longer valuable as property.

No, there is a reason that Christians made Sunday the Sabath. It has nothing to do with "convenience." Convenience for what? The reason can be found in the Bible.

The fact that nobody was even aware of this day pretty much contradicts your statement that it has been "shoved in our faces."

It is a global day and the US is part of the global community even if some prefer it not be.

No worse and much less intrusive than our government mandating a 'National Day of Prayer.'

Obama's brief statement simply said that all people should be treated as human beings free from discrimination and violence. OMG--what a bully!
