But a “zinger” (that was in response to himself when it comes down to it) shouldn’t be used as a way to ignore or not address what was actually said. The post he (partly) quoted was about how it’s ridiculous to compare a sexual orientation to a terrorist group and how they weren’t being reprimanded because they were Christian. It was even brought up on this very page how it’s not because they’re Christian:
You’ve lost me here. My understand is that couple was a Christian couple, which is why they did not want to do the tee-shirts.
It IS ridiculous to compare a hatefilled white supremacist group to a Christian couple.

How do you creatively translate that into: “gay rights activists bullying those who disagree with them again!”?
The owner of the store said “the message of the shirts conflicted with his Christian beliefs.”
The shirt’s message said, “Lexington Pride Festival” on the front, with a graphic of a numeral 5.
How is that conflicting with Christian beliefs?
Monsignor Bruno Forte, appointed by the Pope as the synod’s special secretary, said today that a homosexual’s “dignity must be recognized and promoted.”
A Pride Festival would come under that definition, methinks.
You have 1000 more posts than me but you are helping me to catch up.
Many would see a Pride Event, any Pride event as being in favor of gay marriage and since we almost have gay marriage across the whole country, it would seem that these activist groups including the “Pride” have been very successful in getting into schools and into the media and proclaiming that to be against gay marraige is to be against gay rights
If you want to argue that the two are not related you can but there are many who would feel you can’t split hairs on this issue. Dignity involved dignity of all and the gay pride events do a lot to take away from the dignity of most humans by the way they dress and act. That alone will make me question the validity of doing a tee shirt for it.
