Other than physically harming someone or victimizing them in some other tangible way, what would you say is "despicable"?
Getting people fired for personal views, harassment, suing people/businesses because their beliefs against gay marriage, etc.

I think all of those qualify as victimization.

Would like to read those briefs because last I checked you can't be sued for an opinion.

True, but you can be sued if you refuse to act based off of that opinion, i.e. refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple since you support traditional marriage.

I'll give you that. That is pretty bad.


Still inappropriate to try to get somebody fired regardless of Card's views, as extreme and crazy as they may sound.

Most of the cases involve lawsuits surrounding businesses refusing to allow wedding receptions or weddings at the venues due to the owner's beliefs.

Did the baker break the law?

Same-Sex Couple Sues Over Wedding Site

Gay Couple Sue Hawaii B&B, Claim Discrimination

There are many more. Some may argue that this is the cost of progress. I disagree. This is forcing others to bend to your beliefs at the expense of their own. Are there not other businesses that would service these individuals? Should we not have a choice who we do business with?

I can see that argument but I don't think this rises to the level as the intimidation stuff you were referring to.

Out of curiosity: Substitute black for gay. Would you still side with the business?

Philosophically, yes. I think people should have the right to choose who they do business with.

Now, they would lose my business as well since, personally, I disagree with their practice. I would in no way try to force them to change their ways though. I would take my business and money elsewhere.

This opinion of mine would easily get me labeled a bigot or a racist.

You sound like you want to make "Gay" a protected class which would be absolutely absurd.

One is a skin color, one is a choice. Geez, you Lefties are pathetic. Substitute Black for Incestuous people. Substitute Black for Pedophile, and on and on and on. The moral spiral downward.
