Jim Crow laws for
gays and lesbians?

USA Today, by Kirsten Powers

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2014 8:51:48 PM

What´s the matter with Kansas? A bill protecting the religious freedom of businesses and individuals to refuse services to same-sex couples passed the state House of Representatives last week. It was blessedly killed in the state Senate on Tuesday. Similar bills have cropped up in a half-dozen states in an effort to protect anti-gay religious believers against lawsuits. A florist in Washington state, a Colorado baker and a New Mexico photographer have been sued for refusing to serve gay couples getting married. They say to do so would be to "celebrate" nuptials at odds with their Christian faith. It´s probably news to

Jim Crow laws? Really Kirsten? I guess she still hasn´t spent enough time out of that liberal bubble. The fact that she isn´t the slightest bit concerned about the religious freedom of businesses and individuals to refuse services to same-sex couples is disturbing. She still is more radical than reasonable. As a refresher here´s the video of her battling Megyn Kelly with Kirsten saying the Black Panthers were not threatening at the voting site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZ93liKuj_4

Gay men and women had the right to marry before the recent rulings and law changes. Homosexual marriage is another issue and should be treated as such.

Many of the social ills of this country can be attributed to the disintegration of the family.Changing the definition of marriage further weakens that.

Furthermore, a differing opinion does not make me a racist, homophobic, or anything other than a person who has their own opinion!

Jesus would tell the gays the same thing He told the woman caught in adultery; "go and sin no more." Jesus followed Old Testament law which provided stoning for homosexual activity. While He would have forgiven them once, His admonition to go and sin no more would have held just as firm. Finally, Jesus settled the question of marriage once and for all in Matthew 19:4-5. The Greek words He uses in verse 4 can only mean "male" and "female."

Let me get this straight.

So, (hypothetically) my daughter is getting married (to a young man). We want the ceremony at a certain church, a certain florist, a certain wedding cake maker and the reception at a certain venue.

One or more aren´t available. So, we get to sue?

Can´t make it up, can you?

I bet those bakers and florists and caterers would sell to Jewish people for their weddings and parties. And unlike many gay couples and persons, Jews and the Jewish religion outright deny and reject Jesus Christ.

So what gives?

Once again Christians acting like dunces.

Don´t delude yourselves folks. The "anti-discrimination" laws treat refusing any service to some manifest sexual pervert exactly the same as refusing service to someone because of their race or religion. This is already a done deal - your Government has already done this. It is all over except for the screaming.

There is big difference between selling a birthday cake to a self professed homosexual and selling a wedding cake to two such persons. In the first instance the seller does not participate in any sin. In the second instance they do.

I see this as a response to perceived or real bullying by LGBT activists but I doubt it will fly.

When anti-discrimination laws were first made, in the 60´s they referred to public accommodations like transportation, motels, restaurants, etc. Things changed over the years to any kind of service offered to the public but I don´t know if the laws did.

The same argument was made by the Muslim cabdrivers who refused to transport anyone with a visible wine bottle - that this would make them a participant in sin. Since they were licensed to serve the entire public and there were laws about public accommodation, they lost.

To me there is a big difference between the cabdrivers´ case and that of those who bake wedding cakes, but many do not see a difference.

Powers got a little religion, so she thinks she knows everything now?

Ms. Powers, if you performed in home services, housecleaning, tax preparation etc. and I had hookers hanging around and big posters of women from the mid east being decapitated, because that´s my sexual orientation and belief system--women are lower than beasts--should you be compelled to provide me your services? By law? Because sweetie, that is exactly what you are advocating.

Should your daughter--and let´s make her 18--be compelled to babysit in a house with degrading pictures of women adorning everything? Because using your logic Ms. Powers, she not only should, she MUST, by law.

Your revulsion of the above, and your religious beliefs against the murder and degradation of women would certainly prevent YOU from feeling like you should be forced to work there--and YOUR precious daughter.

And no, that would not be a hostile working environment, that would simply my sexual "orientation".

Typical liberal, insisting on laws when it suits me, but not for thee.

Let us remember that Jim Crow laws were brought to this country by the Democrat Party.

In regards to equalizing the civil rights of blacks with homosexuals, it is insulting to blacks. Every time every black person is in public every one knows they are black. That is not the case with homosexuals and lesbians. Other people can only know their "sexual orientation" if they display it in manner and dress, or openly announce it in conversation while doing business. Why do we need to know?

The radical homosexual activists are no more interested in the lives of their constituency than Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson care for theirs. The push to redefine marriage is another battle in the war against our Judeo-Christian faiths, virtues, and culture. It is a war against the individual´s freedom of religious conscience, and that includes the freedom to resist being forced into committing a sin of complicity. An unfamiliar moral value to many.

Okay, now lets put a bunch of ladies, mostly elderly, outside an abortion clinic, holding signs and praying, rosaries in hand.

Does Kristen think they´re threatening the patients entering the abortion clinic?

This is all a set up for law suits and to infringe on civil liberties involving private property.

While not completely analogous, Rosa Parks and the black kids intergrating a Little Rock public school were all targeted by the NAACP as test cases to challenge segregation. These plaintiffs were not innocent victims they were sought out and planned by the NAACP.

This is no different...for the most part except that buses and schools are public.

The gay agenda is not interested in individual enterprises or particular businesses, but rather to create a very powerful and lucrative lobby group to enhance and weild their power.

Attacking "mom & pop" businesses fuels the media´s over-reaction to alleged discrimination.

Believe me, there are numerous businesses who could care less to whom they are providing a service to as long as they are paid. These businesses were specifically targeted to create a controversy.

Well Kirsten, apparently you never heard of Freedom of Religion which means churches are free to confine themselves to their particular religious practices and beliefs. A pox on you for your attempt to get rid of another right in the Bill of Rights.

FTA: Christians serve unrepentant murderers through prison ministry. So why can´t they provide a service for a same-sex marriage?

When was the last time a Christian in a prison ministry told a murderer, "We don´t care if you murder again, we´re here to help you feel better about your crimes." No, they say, "Repent, be saved and sin no more."

Or, does Kristen believe that the Christian bakers, florists and photographers should be allowed to spend their entire time in contact with the "gay couple" proselytizing, telling them to repent and become heterosexual?

Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what.

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Google has acquired drone maker Titan Aerospace, the Wall Street Journal reports. Titan is a New Mexico-based company that makes high-flying solar powered drones. There´s no word on the price Google paid, but Facebook had been in talks to acquire the company earlier this year for a reported $60 million. Presumably, Google paid more than that to keep it away from Facebook. It sounds like Titan will work on a variety of projects for Google. Titan will be able to collect photos from around the planet from high up, which could help with Google Earth and Google Maps. It will also contribute to Google's Project Loon,

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day.

Chicago Police responded to 26 separate shooting incidents over the weekend, but over half the shootings occurred in only a 12-hour period on Saturday. Several of the incidents featured multiple shootings with multiple victims. Many were gang related. Chicago´s murder rate had been down over last year´s rates and some have errantly pegged the drop in murder rates to the fact that

However, Holder cleared up to The Huffington Post that his comments were not about race, they were meant to reflect the current level of partisan “incivility” in Washington. The media buzzed for days about whether Holder played the race card, but the attorney general explained HuffPost last Friday, “I didn’t say there was a racial component. I was very careful not to say that.” When he was talking about his unfair treatment to Al Sharpton‘s National Action

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
