No, neither religion forbids the recognition that the other religion exists, nor forbids its adherents from attending any event sponsored by people of a different religion.

Just so we're not speaking in abstractions, here's the relevant text from the Indiana RFRA:

Sec. 8. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b), a governmental entity may not substantially burden a person's exercise of religion, even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability. (b) A governmental entity may substantially burden a person's exercise of religion only if the governmental entity demonstrates that application of the burden to the person: (1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.

In other words, the government may not restrict the religious freedom of religious people/businesses unless it has a compelling interest in doing so. Preventing discrimination is certainly a "compelling interest" and will be seen as such in court.

No one will be able to demonstrate in court that refusing to cater to a birthday party has something do with their religious convictions, so the law has nothing to do with that.

On the other hand, many Christians, Jews and especially Muslims consider homosexuality to be sinful I don't endorse this opinion at all, by the way define marriage as a man-woman union under God, based on the example of Adam and Eve, the first married couple. Based on this, some of them consider same-sex marriage to be a fundamentally illegitimate and sinful bastardization of what they view as the true Godly purpose of marriage. Catering to such an event amounts to an endorsement, in their eyes, and a violation of their religious convictions.

And straight for the ad hominem.
I should know better than to expect a relevant argument, or any semblance of logic.
Because that's not politically correct.
Obama wasn't entitled to presidency on the basis of his skin. Yet it was handed to him anyway.
Telling the truth, even when its not politically correct, is just.

Don't expect people to bend the knee to your beliefs when you don't bend the knee to theirs.

Maybe I didn't make this clear enough.
No one owes you anything. No one has to do anything for you just because you believe something, and neither do you have to do for them.

It's not about being entitled, it's about being equal. If one man buys a drink from a store and another man is denied that drink based on something he was born with, something he cannot change, how is that freedom?

That is a terrible analogy. A school is run by state taxes, you pay for it children or not. A teacher should not and legally could not do that because they are a servant of the public, that is their job fro the outset. It is not the same for a personal business owner. A privately owned business succeeds or fails on its own, based on the decisions and practices of the owner.

If they go out of business because people don't like their bigotry, then that is the way capitalism works. If you cry and big brother steps in and makes them serve people despite their beliefs, then you are perpetrating crimes against personal freedoms. A Christian business (to make a specific example, it could be any religion, lifestyle) should not be legally forced to serve a gay couple if it contradicts their personal belief, just as military family should not be forced to serve members of Westboro Baptist church and a gay couple could refuse service to KKK members. That is how it should work and has worked until being politically correct started making companies act like idiots.

A cake shop or a pizza shop are not uncommon, you wouldn't even have to drive a half hour to find another one.
User avatar #215 - Ruspanic (04/29/2015) [-]
The Indiana law does not allow for discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. It allows businesses to refuse to cater to events that they object to on religious grounds. So a bakery could refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay customer, but it could not refuse to make a birthday cake for that same gay customer.

User avatar #237 - taniv (04/29/2015) [-]
I'm not asking anyone to bend to someone else's beliefs. I'm asking people not to treat each other differently because of who they fall in love with. If they walk in the store wearing rainbow speedo's and swinging around giant purple dildo's that's one thing, but if they're just two peace loving men or women who want a pizza and are willing to pay, then there's no good reason to refuse them service. Not to mention the bigger issue that you can refuse to hire someone based off of that. This isn't about beliefs, it's about respecting the human right to be treated equally. We cannot condone discrimination based on irrelevant factors because it fundamentally infringes on the notion of civil and human rights that we claim to stand for and uphold as a society. If your belief system comes into conflict with someone else's rights, then you should not be legally supported in exercising those rights. They should not get legal protection from discriminating against another person. That would be giving a religious person the freedom to ignore human rights laws that everyone else has to abide by. Religious people are not entitled to get special treatment by the law, and they shouldn't get special laws made so they can bypass laws.
User avatar #240 - Ruspanic (04/29/2015) [-]
"if they're just two peace loving men or women who want a pizza and are willing to pay, then there's no good reason to refuse them service"

the Indiana RFRA would agree. Under RFRA the government would be allowed to "substantially burden a person's exercise of religion" in pursuit of any compelling government interest. Preventing actual discrimination against gay people is a "compelling government interest", and would be recognized as such in court.
User avatar #243 - taniv (04/29/2015) [-]
I've heard the RFRA has actually had several reformations to it regarding the issue of sexual orientation. I have no problem with people exercising their religion, I just don't think their beliefs should override legal matters or human rights matters. True religious freedom would see stonings in the streets and the worst of Sharia Law, which is different than just being able to pray when you want and where you want or wear your Turban as a soldier. I don't want to step on the rights of religious people, I don't want them to step on someone else's. It's a delicate balance when some of the holy books almost demand infringing on other people's rights, but it's a balance we have to work to keep.
User avatar #245 - Ruspanic (04/30/2015) [-]
I'm not totally clear on what changes have been made to the bill, but as far as I know no versions of the RFRA have made explicit mention of gay people.

The law does effectively allow businesses to refuse to cater to gay weddings if doing so would violate their religious convictions - or rather, it prevents the government from forcing these businesses to cater. A refusal to cater to someone's wedding (or any other event, for that matter) does not constitute a violation of human rights, because no one is naturally entitled to anyone else's service.

"This chapter does not:

Of course you're not entitled to someone else's service, but it does clash with being entitled to be treated equally. It's tough terrain to cross, but we have to draw lines where your rights infringe on someone else's. I mean, realistically, if you have two customers willing to pay that haven't broken any policy of misconduct, they should both be treated equally as they're served, regardless of who they go home to. There's a difference between a baker refusing to draw a giant dick on your cake and refusing to serve a gay wedding; though it is tough because gay marriage goes against some people's beliefs. But if your beliefs don't allow you to treat people equally, then is that really a belief that we as a society want someone to be able to exercise. I mean, the baker situation sounds so silly and irrelevant, but I think people are worried about it snowballing into something a lot worse, like segregation kind of bad. The right to refuse service is and always has been a tricky one, and it's not so much about them being entitled to a wedding cake, but them having the right to be treated as more than just "gay".
User avatar #250 - Ruspanic (04/30/2015) [-]
Frankly, I don't think you have a right to be treated equally by everyone. The only natural rights you have are rights of autonomy, or "negative rights" that can be violated but not granted - right to life, right to free expression and thought and belief, right to assembly, right to bodily integrity (i.e right to not be raped or physically harmed), right to consent to agreements with others, and so on. Basically all this stuff you're born with that doesn't rely upon other people's cooperation or positive action, only on other people's non-interference.

Having said that, I recognize that allowing private businesses to discriminate on whatever basis runs a real risk of creating widespread discrimination, and the free market can't be relied upon to fix the problem without government intervention (see for example pre-1960s America). In the interest of preventing this real and substantial threat to general welfare, equality and justice (which are not rights, but important values nonetheless), I support some anti-discrimination laws.
But in practical terms, it does not seem likely that allowing religious businesses to opt out of catering to gay weddings will pose any real threat to the well-being (and certainly not to the rights) of gay people. It won't even seriously impede their ability to plan their weddings, as demonstrated by the huge numbers of people and businesses who oppose the RFRA and the backlash against Memories Pizza. There are plenty of businesses willing to cater to gay weddings. Why gay couples would deliberately seek service from an anti-gay marriage business is beyond me.

I agree with your first point to an extent. Like in some cases, yeah I'd like to have the right to treat someone differently if they've, say, done something against me and my family on a personal basis, but not a legal or business related issue. I just also believe in the right to be treated equally unless just cause is given, again like someone walking in with the Punisher from the Saints Row games, and I don't believe someone's sexuality is what we should legally understand as a just cause. Like I don't want to force a Nurse to operate on her husband's killer, but I don't want her to be able to deny service to someone because the dude's husband showed up.

Again, yeah the gay wedding thing is tricky, because it's simply solved. I personally would be offended if a company turned me down based on skin colour, for example, but in today's society I can at least trust that if I send that story to a news crew that company is going to get run out of business, which is what actually happened to the company that refused service. I'll respect their right to deny me service, if they have it, to the extent that I walk out of that store and seek it else where, but I'm not going to let that action go unheard or go without consequence. I would want people to know that their establishment carries discriminatory and racist principles. So what I think the amendments to the RFRA protect against, are the snowball effect that can occur where you get coalitions of local business pledge not to grant a certain service, and suddenly a gay couple isn't just facing discrimination from one business, but a large portion of their community. Sounds like an extreme worst case example of course in our day and age, but it's not like that hasn't happened in the past.

There's great irony in your last lines.
User avatar #242 - taniv (04/29/2015) [-]
Basic human rights are an entitlement. Not all entitlements are bad. Giving special treatment to any group or oppressing any group is in direct conflict with the first entitlement. Without bringing morality into this, you cannot have the former with the latter, and as a society, we've put a lot of importance on the former. You said "you are entitled to nothing", which is false in our society, though true in nature. If you want to live in a world without entitlement, then you don't have to live in the U.S., you can easily go to a country where they don't respect human rights or have a farce of a legal system. People won't be complaining about what they're "entitled to", and you can see what quality of life is created for hard working individuals without power when the authorities and those in power don't entitle them to anything.I feel this goes without saying, but men and women have died for our basic entitlements, it's worth respecting.

You've been watching too much House of Cards, and it's lead to you looking pathetic in your feeble-minded rant on 'society' and 'political correctness'. Nice job making yourself look stupid.
User avatar #236 - infinitereaper (04/29/2015) [-]
Stupidity, is claiming to promote freedom by saying for your cause and denying another the right to say for theirs. Stupidity believing that the best way to grant equality is to force your "equality" on others. Stupidity is political correctness.
#244 - brutallyhonest (04/30/2015) [-]
Stupidity is looking at 'freedom' facevalue, for some kind of literal sense of the word. You don't want -actual- freedom in this country. Since the Constitution, we've been making limitations and bending the word, not to keep power out of the common man, or to enslave us, but to keep us alive. To keep us safe walking down a block; to be able to live our lives, make our families and to do what we want to do as far as pursuing the future. If we had -actual- freedom, as you've described it, "no one's entitled to survive" then we'd live in a country where baby's would be decapitated in the middle of the street, because "FUCK POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, DIS IS MUH FREEDOM TUH DO SO" People would be murdered and raped, and we'd be living in a third world country, or at the very least, an unsafe country. But that sounds beautiful right? Why? Because "half white man wun da vote >;-(" "dirty gov't secrets >;_(" Every government has to have secrets, it's for the safety of the people. Sure we overindulge
in our consumer bullshit while experiencing life with our families. Sure we're left in the dark, most of the time we leave ourselves in the dark. Because it's the price we pay to enjoy our lives as free Americans. We're grateful for what we have, even if we're ignorant to what goes on behind the curtain. If you wanna live somewhere else, do it, faggot. Go live in Russia. Such an amazing place, right? Because the President is open-minded and speaks what he feels. Go leave this country because "half white man wun duh vote >;-( muh freedom, no gays allowed, das freedum" Everything we do, all the laws, or restrictions/limitations made on our "FREEDOM" is done so we can live together in society. So we can not be segregated by bullshit just because one person make have differing opinions on acceptable sexual orientation, or race.

"Can't come into my store because you're -this-" Do you really want to live with that? If so, go somewhere else. Because all you're doing is regurgitating some recycled bullshit that this TV show had in their vomit bucket, in an attempt to feel edgy, so intelligent and 'uncontrolled by our SOOO CORRUPT government".

No one cares, get over yourself.

#203 - infinitereaper (04/29/2015) [-]
And straight for the ad hominem.
I should know better than to expect a relevant argument, or any semblance of logic.
Because that's not politically correct.
Obama wasn't entitled to presidency on the basis of his skin. Yet it was handed to him anyway.
Telling the truth, even when its not politically correct, is just.

Don't expect people to bend the knee to your beliefs when you don't bend the knee to theirs.

Maybe I didn't make this clear enough.
No one owes you anything. No one has to do anything for you just because you believe something, and neither do you have to do for them.
You are entitled to nothing.
I repeat.

You are entitled to nothing
User avatar #204 - brettyoke (04/29/2015) [-]
You're so dumb, it's honestly just painful. The worst part is you think you're some transcended being, wiser than the rest of us.

It's not about being entitled, it's about being equal. If one man buys a drink from a store and another man is denied that drink based on something he was born with, something he cannot change, how is that freedom?

Years from now, future generations will cringe at how this was even a debate.
#209 - infinitereaper (04/29/2015) [-]
Not freedom? Freedom for who? Freedom for you?
In other words its okay if YOU get to trample over other people's beliefs.
As long as it serves YOU.
You,
You,
You.

Tell me, how is that freedom?

The only thing that's painful here is that you think you are entitled to be equal. No one is entitled to anything. no one is equal. Just because you a born doesn't mean you are entitled to survive. Because you are entitled to nothing

Don't like stores that refuse certain customers? Build a store that accepts everyone.
Everyone has a right to make their own choices. Whether or not you do or don't like it.
Stop asking for your future to be handed to you.
And BUILD IT.
User avatar #224 - brettyoke (04/29/2015) [-]
Hard to build your own future when people are building barriers. Freedom is the right do anything so long as it doesn't interfere with the freedom of someone else. Offering goods and services to everyone except me impedes on my freedom.

This country spent ages fighting for equality, and now it's seen as the ideal way to live. But apparently, to you, that only applies for race?

Do you realise how silly you sound?
User avatar #232 - infinitereaper (04/29/2015) [-]
Then by all means, take away others freedom to secure your own. You entitled, special, deserving snowflake. Live your entire life that way. By all means. Secure your entitlements. While you still can.
User avatar #269 - brettyoke (04/30/2015) [-]
You're so stupid, honestly. You have the mentality of a communist society. Why should some people have more freedoms than others because of the circumstances of their birth?

People like you need to be kept far away from politics.

Hi, your name is kind of blue and you're online a lot, and i'm curious.

What was it actually like during LoK season 1? How much spam was there?

It was pretty bad. At peak it took about 50-70% of the front page. Generally it was between 10 and 40 though.

No idea if you care or not, but with the whole book thing, I'm starting to work on my Query letter, a one page letter that is sent out to editors to try and get a book published. You want to read any of it, just so I can see what a random person will say to reading the first section of it? I need to make sure this thing is perfect...

If I were you, I would create a quick note on how James became a free thinking clone (ex. "When James, the world's only free thinking clone due to an electrical error, ..."). Also, I would try and shorten the "Reich Empire" to just "Empire" in some places in that second paragraph for a clean-cut read.

Overall, it sounds like something I'd be willing to read.

I'm going to ask this, but please don't take any offense. I don't mean it at all, I would just like to know who I'm dealing with.

My idea is to create an economy using those useless gold coins (imp/royal/pirate). I'm just posting to see if it would be wanted, and to have the community evaluate it for what it is currently before I go any deeper into it. If you like my idea and feel like you have a way to build onto it, just send me a message :D If you want to see this turn into a function of this game, and not to have addy's pointless updates as much, comment on it that you'd like to see it happen, and send a message to addy, showing him it.

Here's the idea!
