re: Govt tells Christian ministers: Perform same-sex weddings or face jail, fines - Vegas Bengal
[quote]It is an establishment of religion.[/quote] I was referring to the posters comment. I don't know their religion but I suspect it's a chapel like those in a Vegas every street corner. It doesn't appear that they hold services there other than weddings. Regardless, I still believe they'd fal...

[quote]What we're seeing, and some of us already knew this, is that this will never end. This organized movement stopped being solely about gay rights a long time ago. It's now every bit as much about harassing and, hopefully, destroying organized religion....i.e. Christianity. I laugh everytime I...

Yes he should if the religion on which he is ordained has a conflict with a certain law. The same strict scrutiny test would apply,...

re: Govt tells Christian ministers: Perform same-sex weddings or face jail, fines - Vegas Bengal
I was correcting your assertion that Toddy said this wouldn't happen and it has. It hasn't happened. And it won't happen. If any city is stupid enough to include ministers under their public accommodations laws, they will lose in court. I'm not saying a city wouldn't or couldn't but if they did...

No, it's the same thing. From Eugene Volokh: [quote]I was very pleased to have the officiants I had for my wedding. But if I had instead asked a rabbi, and he told me that he didn’t want to preside over a wedding between my wife (who isn’t ethnically Jewish) and me, I can’t see how that sort of e...

[quote]Are they ordained ministers? Yes, they are. [/quote] You said churches and ministers. This isn't a church and I acknowledged they were ministers. And I addressed that point: I doubt any judge would require it. Why are you being a dick? [quote]Irrelevant to my post. The GOVERNMENT is ...

[quote]There is no way that story is true. Toddy assured us for years that churches and ministers would not be forced to marry homosexuals. [/quote] It hasn't happened. This isn't a church. And no gay couple has asked to be married by these ministers or in their "chapel". The city attorney t...

[quote]A Higher Authority is an absolute must for morality to even exist. Without it, we are no different than the animal kingdom where right and wrong do not exist. And yes, many people agree on which Higher authority to follow, they do it every day. [/quote] I think you have a very low opinion ...

re: Hillary's more than casual relationship with Saul Alinsky - Vegas Bengal
So you're saying two letters written 40 years ago and what may or may not have been her political beliefs are still relevant today? You do know Ronald Reagan was a Roosevelt Democrat and Bill Cassidy was a Dukakis/tsongas a democrat. Most people are more liberal in their early years. Why is...

re: Texas Atty Gen and U of Houston law professor agree: City of Houston overreached - Vegas Bengal
I just used football as an example and in a way it's a good one. There are some teams (like Auburn cough cough) who push the envelope more than others. If the officials let them, then it's legal. If they go overboard, the officials will be harder on them. Simplistic but kind of what I'm talking...

[quote]I don't have a problem understanding at all. Why did they revise the subpoena before it got to the judge? If your argument is so awesome, why didn't they let the subpoena run its course in court? Answer: your argument blows. [/quote] Because they reviewed the Motion to Quash and thought ...

re: Judge strikes down Arizona's ban on gay marriage - Vegas Bengal
[quote]My concern is and, until proven otherwise, will be the "end-game". Is the end-game attainment of gay marriage and equal rights? If so I'm all in. [/quote] You can say this with most issues. I'm for cutting taxes, but where will it end? I'm for raising revenue but where will it end? I'm for...

[quote]Roger, cwill and one other lawyer cat. [/quote] No. You couldn't understand then and you still don't Let's review... What we said is that a party can subpoena whatever they damn well please. The person subpoenaed can then file a Motion to Quash. It's then left up to the judge to allow ...

re: People need to stop being sucked into media driven fear - Ebola - Vegas Bengal
Really? The top 10 news stories had 7 on Ebola on usa today's website. This is nothing new. The media makes money by increasing readership and viewers. The way to do that is to sensationalize. They do it for hurricanes, cancer, viruses and sex scandals. I've been saying this for years. It's no...
