Let me see if I get this straight: in a tolerant country a company should be able to do business with only those people that adhere to their same religious beliefs, and not be accused of discrimination. That's what Jeb Bush just said.

Those two basic concepts seem to come down to this, in my mind.

Tolerance: showing willingness to allow the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen….. 1 John 4:20

"Liberty of conscience is protected by the First Amendment, but freedom from discrimination is protected by the Civil Rights Act. Like many areas of the law, the issue of discrimination and freedoms is constantly evolving, but the first few decisions in cases involving same-sex couples have found that businesses do not have the right to refuse service to gay or lesbian customers any more than they do to those of certain races or nationalities."

I say we let the "free market" decide this matter for us, not the courts. I have seen time after time the fish symbol on cars, vans, in the yellow pages (remember them?) to denote the faithful from the heathens, such as myself, I guess. (I was raised Southern Baptist years ago myself.....) I have even seen In His Name Dry Wall Installation here in Tennessee, complete with cross on the side of the white van…...

All "Christians" operating businesses in the public arena should, therefore, proudly display this symbol on their windows to let us know of their solid faith. And then WE could decide whether or not our beliefs are in alignment to patronize the establishment. Then no one would be offended…and GoFundME would not be necessary. 

Everybody else could display this:


  1. Roslyn Carter once said Ronald Reagan allowed the American people to become comfortable again with their prejudices. It's now 2015 and certain members of our society revel in their hates and moronic nature.

  2. Yes.... we ALL should be comfortable with...and proud of.....our "predudices." I'm SURE Jesus said to disrepect those that obviously don't think like you do.......or would have, if some hateful Romans hadn't murderd him because of THEIR jealousies and ignorance.
