    Two weeks after the law is vetoed, Ted raises the alarm.

    I’m good with that. Though it does assume that pressure will work against them. This may be true generally (most Americans now favor marriage equality), but quite possibly not in some towns, in which case it will be an even more negative environment.

    But, it seems perfectly fine to the LGBT community and MSM that a gay stylist turned away the governor of New Mexico from getting service because she was against gay marriage…

    The hypocrisy is rich…

    Ayn Rand strikes again. One of her main themes is that making money is always a Good Thing, and businesses being able to take money from anyone and everyone won out over prejudice.


    The economics are that, if serving one customer causes other customers to stay away, a business must try to figure out which policy is most profitable. But if all discrimination is prohibited by law, businesses don’t have to worry about such things, since every business must serve all customers, and the prejudiced customers can’t go elsewhere to avoid the people they’d be willing to boycott a business for serving.


    So profit wins over prejudice!


    Power to the petit bourgeoisie.

    I’m sure it has to go through a few more hoops then Ted creating the art and hitting “send”. It doesn’t detract from the brilliance of this cartoon.

    IF it is NOT a choice, then why do people struggle against it?
    I think it is a choice.

    I think you are correct.
    Only those with a standard are “wrong” in our culture.

    Other states are debating such legislation. Not a done deal, yet.

    Got low standards, don’t you?

    I’m left-handed by heredity, people struggled to make me right-handed. It’s called societal pressure, which in this case is biblically imposed.

    Having a gay marriage is a choice too Nantucket as is being for or against it. If it should be illegal for a company to turn customers way wanting services for a gay wedding then it should be equally illegal for them to turn customers away for not being in favor of those weddings.

    That does not explain how an individual being against it makes it right or legal that someone be denied service by a business. After all, it seems a business cannot be against it and deny service to an individual in favor of it.

    “It seems to me that the only people that don’t have any rights are the white heterosexual Christian conservatives.”

    Really? They don’t have any rights?? Is that why they’ve historically tried to prevent others from obtaining equal rights?
