Yes, you can in some places have your wedding cake made by a company that doesn’t want to cater to gay couples, but why would you want to? An important wedding item made by someone who doesn’t support your views? Why give that company the cash?

The on-line AJC has reduced comment sections to one or two, they are up for only a hour or so, and most of the story postings are about irrelevant children’s games. Does the AJC think it can prosper as a large city newspaper by avoiding politics, controversy, and criticism? Not a chance.

Tell me this, oh wise people: What if you are refused service at store where the owner says it’s against his religion to serve people with a Southern accent, or doesn’t like your necklace with a cross on it, or sees you carrying a religious book? Or, how about not serving you because you don’t have a wedding ring on?

George W. Bush took American soldiers into a war with no thought of consequences, over 4,500 dead American soldiers, a nearly broken economy. Barrack Obama took us out of that war, worked to recover our economy, and doesn’t want more soldiers slaughtered in the Middle East.
You say Bush was a better President?

The unemployment rate is higher than when Bush was president. The cost of health insurance is up. Casualties in Afghanistan increased. We are entering a new Cold War. ISIS controls an area larger than Great Britain. Well, technically, that is “change.”
