More People Now Support Allowing Businesses To Refuse LGBTQ Customers: Survey
A new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute suggests that for many Americans, the jury is also still out on this issue.

Nearly half of Americans surveyed (46 percent) said that owners of wedding-based businesses, such as caterers, florists and bakers, should be allowed to refuse to serve same-sex couples if doing so violates their religious beliefs. Roughly the same number (48 percent) disagreed, saying that these types of businesses should be required to serve queer couples.

Portland’s Patriot Prayer Rally Could Be Most Violent Since Charlottesville, Activists Say
Armed, proto-fascist gangs are set to rally in Portland, Oregon, this weekend, stirring fears that the city could witness the kind of political violence not seen since the deadly white supremacist “Unite the Right” event in Charlottesville, Virginia, nearly a year ago...
The last rally, on June 30, was declared a riot by the city of Portland after Patriot Prayer and Proud Boy members, many in body armor and carrying weapons, repeatedly charged at anti-fascist protesters. A viral video showed one Proud Boy member knocking a masked anti-fascist unconscious. Other videos showed Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer members isolating and circling counterprotesters, beating them.
At least six people were sent to the hospital after the day’s chaos, one with a brain hemorrhage. Nine people were arrested.

Trump at Montana rally: "Democrats want anarchy," mocks #MeToo movement, Elizabeth Warren
In a lengthy, freewheeling speech Thursday in Great Falls, Montana, on Thursday, President Trump spent the vast majority of the hour-plus speech hitting on familiar themes: trade, taxes, immigration, protests by NFL players, the economy, the press, better relations with Russia and North Korea, his proposed "space force," and the Supreme Court vacancy.
The president once again promised to appoint a justice to replace the retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy. Mr. Trump said Kennedy had decided to leave the High Court because he knew the president would pick a stellar replacement.
PAY ATTENTION, PLEASE Exclamation We, the queers of the world will be swept up in the hatred being mixed up in Trump's cauldron

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

It is true in both cases.

You CAN always go to another bakery.

But, equally so, if you don't stand up to an injustice, that injustice CAN spread.

WW2 DID happen. It happened because of many reasons. One of those many reasons was they were so afraid of repeating WW1. WW2 wasn't the result of Jew Hate. Jews were simply one of the very horrible events during the war. Far more people died at the hands of Stalin that died everywhere else in the European portion of the conflict added together.

If something is unacceptable, and you don't object, you are guilty of allowing it.
I hate Christianity for all of its unChristlike hate. I hate the silent majority that doesn't object to the excesses of its hateful minority. I don't hate Islam, I hate the silent majority of its members for not objecting loud enough to stop its excessive hateful minority.

I don't hate lesbians, I might even be one. I hate the TERFs though, for their total refusal to call a transgender woman a real woman.
I don't hate gays, but I hate it when a gay man hates a transgender man for having a vagina.

I don't hate cisgender people for not knowing, but, I can hate their lack of interest in learning.
I don't hate ignorance, but, I can actively hate willful bigotry and a refusal to change.

Yer post was drivel Angel.

if I was being paid to educate you, I'd type out the specifics. But I'm not, and I'd rather have my bath and get ready for my girlfriend. Suffice it to say, I'm an expert in 20-century history, and the opening of your post was outright drivel, clever-sounding drivel, but still drivel all the same.

You're so busy writing lengthy failing grade garbage that you make errors in your urgent need to post this shit. How about you stick to writing transgender content on a transgender forum. Because this crap is really making you look like a college student who is wasting your money. How old are you really? You don't sound like you have any connection to the content. I'm a baby boomer, WW2 was my backyard. You don't appear to know the material. But you've likely read about it in college.

My dad said it best, "you need a pram with higher walls."

Angel, it's a TRANSGENGER forum to discuss TRANSGENDER issues in a polite friendly fashion among transgender members.

I'm not sure what your problem is, but your posts are full of content that speaks to you being a deeply confused, disturbed, angry, hateful person. We've been patiently waiting for you to either be genuine or at least make the effort.

I don't come here to read your weird nonsensical tirades about imaginary issues in the fucking year 3000.

I'll just say it, and I know there are other thinking it, WHAT precisely ARE you? What part of the acronym are you? Are you truly transgender? Why precisely are you hanging out with us?

If you're going to storm off, fine, DO IT, but please, spare us the lunatic fringe drama if you're staying.

I don't have the authourity to ban you, and one of my first posts here was to make it plain I'd refuse the offer of that power to be capable of it. I'm not worried about being banned myself. If I get out of line, I WILL respond correctly to requests to behave.

Angel, you have never actually BEEN my friend. I don't know you, I've never seen your picture, wouldn't recognize you on the street if I passed you. You are just an odd avatar image on a forum and a person who is afraid to be an actual person with an actual name.
You're not even real to me Angel.

You talk about the internet, you are what's wrong with the internet. You're an anonymous faceless, non-person Angel. Look carefully at my avatar Angel, that is ME, a real live human being. My account name is my actual name. The age, the location those are all REAL.
I haven't been rude or hostile to you Angel. But I AM tired of you Angel.

Some will always get what I am after, some will sometimes get what I am after and then some will never get what I am after.

Sorry Angel but you totally missed my point.

Also, where is the spellcheck for a thread title?

Ok, so twice in one week eh?

Right, well firstly let's get one thing clear. I have read all the chat between you both and firstly I'd like to say that you are both setting a very bad example to young and new members here, so pack it in now!

I have decided that there are no openly nasty comments about persona and yet again I will have to take time to explain.

Lesley, my friend, (who actually Angel, is a very nice person BTW), there is a mistake you have made here. There is no requirement for people to place a photograph of themselves upon here, anyone thinking of joining and reading this would shy away from such comments. I will not allow baiting for identification, photographs or revelation. There is, Lesley, good reason for this. It is not a rule so trolls can have fun here in pretence, I would soon sniff them out. It is because there are many transgender women that are not out and others worried about being stalked. Powerful search engines can chase people around the internet. Others are work in progress, (we all are to some degree), and might not wish to show themselves yet. You are a sensible woman and as somebody online that I like as a friend, I know you will now realise this. You may not have thought it through, so a deletion of the offending post is enough. If there is call for other parts to be deleted, I will consider it.


Angel, I probably understand you more than most here do, but of all our regulars members, I understand you the least, if you know what I mean. Please do not react so often. I have had to react to this thread from a message from someone without this entire thread. The thread was Miki's and now it is locked because of your over reaction. If someone is asking you to show yourself talk to me, don't plow on baiting them back. This is twice in one week and you are involved in both complaints.


I hope you both cool off and either be nice, or do not respond to each other. Please do not send me feedback, I don't want to hear any more of this, apart from requests for further deletion upon this thread. This thread is locked, (sorry Miki), and I am going to remove the post asking for identification also, another sails close to the wind, but I'll leave that for gist.


No more, please.
