    And the left complains that we conservatives tell them what they can do and not do.... the libs will come out defending this decision... the decision of a judge telling a photographer what they can photograph and not photograph.


    Liberal hypocisy on display in 5...... 4.... 3.....2......

    it is the law in that state.
    From the link:
    "Under the state's Human Rights Act, it is discriminatory (and illegal) for "any person in any public accommodation to make a distinction in offering or refusing to offer its services" on the bases of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation and several other factors."

    Isn't NM a red state?

    Yes, you are correct... it is the law... but it's a bad law.

    But you are way off base on a red state.


    So despite your wish that it isn't so... libs are legislating their morality on others.

    There are currently 45 Democrats and 25 Republicans in the House of Representatives.

    There are currently 27 Democrats and 15 Republicans in the Senate.

    Yep I was wrong on NM being a red state.

    But it is the law and it is a state issue. since I do not live there I have nothing to do with it.
    so blame the rest of the nations liberals with your states issues.

    You're right. That law sucks. While I disagree with discriminating against anyone, I also disagree with a government (state or federal) telling an individual what they must or must not do.

    Fucking lefties. You don't solve discrimination by force, you solve it by education. Being such a smart bunch and such believers in edumacation, you'd think they'd know that.

    Wasn't blaming you and yes, it is a state issue.... for now. But this will be appealed and hopefully overturned by someone with some sense.

    I was just making the point that it is usually libs that try to force other people to do things based on their morality. You should despise the state doing this if you are going to be consistent. But I know that won't happen. Libs claim to be against oppression but are usually the most repressive and most intolerant people around.

    So DR's should not have to treat Gay people?

    If anyone knows the inventor of the blood transfusion died when he was taken to a white hospital and was refused treatment.
    He was black.

    insert black wedding in place of same sex wedding.

    still think the photographer can do whatever he wants?

    how about a jewish wedding?

    a christian wedding?

    a muslim wedding?

    have a restaurant? only want white people?

    think you have the right to do that?
