Claptrap & Hooie

This is only an issue because of it's artificial divisiveness serves to direct attention from real issues.

There are government benefits to the state of civil marriage, the 14th Amendment clearly states:
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

While it is necessary for religious marriages to be registered via license with the government no church nor minister has or will be required to perform a gay marriage. Requiring a religious endorsement of marriage to be legal is a clear violation of 1st Amendment rights.
The issue with for profit entities is equally clear, if you offer a service to the public you offer a service to the public and legally cannot discriminate.
The Hobby Lobby exception is such a farce since the owners sincere and controlling religious conviction doesn't extend to the profit of the business since they buy all their crap from China.
A controlling religious belief which cannot abide providing common, legal, healthcare items certainly cannot morally abide selling articles from a godless Communist country.
The trouble with faith & religious belief is it's all encompassing and damned inconvenient for true believers, of which there are very few.
The cafeteria select what you like to believe faith of most is as St. Augustine points out not a belief in the Gospel but a belief in self.

"If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don't like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself."
Saint Augustine


Keynes will ride any horse which will bring attention.

The perennial blame the NRA for aberrant behavior, if it wasn't for guns convenient canard.

What is the motivation? Save innocent lives? What is really the agenda?

Alcohol kills more people than guns, alcohol & cars kill more people than guns.

The reality is that people either through design, incompetence, stupidity, carelessness, lack of awareness or even a momentary lack of attention or judgement kill and maim other people and themselves.
At best education will lower the incidence but the unfortunate reality is nothing will eliminate it.

Firearms are a political issue, not a health issue, violence is a social issue not a firearm one.

Trumpeting tragic killings doesn't change the reality, laws like locks only work on the honest.
