If you vote for people who will deny women the ability to get an abortion you're forcing your views on other people.

Them getting an abortion does not affect you in any way.

You're passively trying to control their life, which is odd coming from the people who otherwise resist "government control" most vociferously.

I think those cake makers are religious nuts and nobody should buy from them, but they had a loophole to "prove" their point. Nobody should care about someone else's sexual orientation. Any extremist view is dangerous, but if it isn't illegal....

After 20+ years in civil rights (it was a while ago), I find the decision abhorrent - but it was a decision and those idiots did it again not too long ago - which is why I said "why would you want to buy from them?"

Oh, and certainly, birth control supplied by insurance just makes so much sense - to those that think otherwise - abstain from any form of sex except for the express purpose of making a baby

I think they are nut bags and should be boycotted to oblivion. They didn’t have a loophole to prove their point. They got off the hook because a largely conservative leaning SCOTUS didn’t like how the CO civil rights commission handled the case. The violation of civil rights/discrimination was clearly founded. It was the convening authority’s admonishing the cake maker’s religious bias that got the case overturned. In a nutshell, the commission overstepped its objectivity and brought emphasis on the religions belief/wackadoodage as the problem/violation. A number of the SCOTUS stated while they agreed with the findings, it was the method that was fatally flawed. Had the commission focused simply on the discriminatory denial of services based on a protected category, the cakers would have been rightfully fucked.

It’s this reason the court’s finding explicitly omitted a precedent finding with regard to the constitutionality of discriminatory acts as free speech, the CO anti-discrimination statutes them selves, and/or the caker’s ability to do this again.

I hope they do to again, and someone hammers the nail down.. hard. Because fuck them.

Ahh, and the beauty of our democracy. People are able to vote what they want for the country and not be forced into voting what other people want.

No, if those people you vote for, win, then the majority is setting the rules.

If the majority is foolish enough to try to ban abortions then that is what the majority and you are in the minority.

Totally aside from the fact that you can't ban abortions - you just move them into the back rooms that result in more deaths and illnesses.

But it isn't simple majority rule.

You remember how The Great 🍊 didn't win the popular vote but he did install 3 Supreme Court Justices.

Since you guys are beating this religion horse to death, I'll weigh in.
While I do believe in Sky Daddy, I'm not a fan of the church in general. I think the Bible has been manipulated by man, particularly the Old Testament. I think the church gets a lot of things wrong in the name of doing the right thing. I think Hinduism and Buddhism both get pieces of the puzzle. The Catholics just make up a bunch of stuff. The key takeaway is to believe in something or Someone greater than yourself.

Explain to me where I "forced" anything. I shared my opinion and you became very unsettled.
Do you vote for politicians that promise to make abortion illegal?

Let's just divide the North and South again... The cold weather gets Sleepy Joe, warm weather gets Trump. Problem solved.
We will also keep the economy k?

We'll keep trade with Canada and y'all can... build that wall ;)

The Bible was 100% written be man, cribbed from pegans and other religions. Period. That's just a fact. They all make up all of the stuff.

Again, that doesn't mean their isn't a creator, but just as the question with the big bang is what created it, the same can be said of any Supreme being.

It also doesn't change the fact that before brain activity, a zygote or blastcyst is just a bunch of cells, mostly undifferentiated through the first trimester.

I don't care if people believe aliens dumped prisoners in a volcano and their spirits inhabit us. I don't care if people worship cows. I don't care if people believe in zombies. I don't care if they believe in the tooth fairy. It's none of my business, until they start using their beliefs to persecute others.

He did win the presidency. As things stand, winning the popular wasn't necessary, but it was still your elected leaders that voted him in - so it was the popular vote one way or another.
