    I wouldn't say she is all that good. I posted this on another thread about this, but here it is again:

    She supports a federal health care plan.
    Voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines
    Voted YES on prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation.
    Against Social Security privatization

    1) A good position.
    2) A bad position.
    3) A good position as long as religious groups are exempted.
    4) A good position.

    Number 3 a good position? So, according to you, I as a private business owner have no right to deny employment to an openly homosexual person? What about an openly admitted drug addict? How about someone that openly admits they steal things?

    Being a homosexual is not against the law, Matt. Neither is being a heterosexual, either.

    The United States is not a theocracy, Pastor Mitchell.

    If you want to live in a theocracy, then I kindly suggest that you check into moving to Iran.

    An employer should be able to hire whomever they want for what ever reason they deem necessary - period.

    Another words an employer should have the right to discriminate if they so desire - and that would include for religious reasons.

    The only exception would be government jobs in most situations.

    And if you want to live in a socialist country, you can move to Cuba.

    The United States is already quite socialistic.

    Hey, if Pastor Mitchell wants to work to change the United States into a theocracy he is quite welcomed to try just as I can work to further socialism in the United States.

    Yes...I understand that it isn't against the law in this country. I'm not asking that homosexuals be jailed. I'm saying that as a private business owner I should be allowed to not hire someone if they are openly engaging in a practice that don't want associated with my business. I'm not picking on just homosexuals, but also drunks, adulterers, etc.

    Matt,

    Should a business owner be allowed to discriminate against a person because he/she is black, or a female, or an Asian, etc.?

    Which is the basic straw man you libs draw up because you struggle to defend living dual lives. Nothing I said remotely comes close to a theocracy. And your statement shows your contempt for God's biblical principles.
