    The florist rejected providing the flowers because of the nature of the event. They had previously provided flowers to the customer and there was no evidence that the florist would never sell flowers to homosexuals. That really isn't the point though. Nobody is suggesting that the newspapers be forced to place the ads. They are just criticizing the decision.

    The florist was more than willing to sell flowers to those customers. They discriminated against the occasion for which those flowers were wanted.

    You know what "smarmy" is? "Smarmy" is the Homosexuals, the true 1%-ers, that think they can change the way the rest of society should think and feel. And if the 99% doesn't comply? The "smarmy" homosexuals cry foul.

    "Smarmy" is the freeloaders and all their ilk that think the rest of us owe them a way of life (free money and food) to sit on their lazy a$$e$ and collect money from their pimp, big brother/nanny.

    "Smarmy" is the Dems and some RINO's that think that letting, in the millions, of possible drug-dealers, pimps, killers, rapists, and terrorists cross the border we have with Mexico everyday while saying how much we need them... just to get a Dem another vote...

    "Smarmy" is a government that leads from behind and then fall asleep when our people (Ambassadors) are getting sodomized for hours and then murdered.

    "Smarmy" is the enviro-terrorists that think by killing our domestic fuel supply and use of fossil fuels that our economy won't suffer tremendously to the point where food would get too expensive for the poor to buy. And that in doing so, it won't hurt our economy even worse than it already has.

    This move only helps our global economic competitors like, Russia, China, India and Brazil... and it kills our American advantage in industrial production. The people that want this are people that are payed by foreign governments that stand to make more money by stealing our business trough their continued, unabated, use of fossil fuels. While we remain restricted. See the original Kyoto Treaty to enlighten yourself.

    "Smarmy" is everyone on this board that disagrees with what I just pointed out.

    Gallup? Good, please post the link, thank you.

    It's true that a majority of Americans will say they want abortion to remain legal.

    But once the question changes to specifics, the numbers begin to turn.

    In this case we are talking about late 2nd or 3rd trimester abortions- support for this is very low. Here's an article from Gallup 2 years ago but the numbers haven't changed...

    So you're for deregulation of the media?

    Most all of the health-care providers in the U.S.A., until Obama the commie muscled though congress a bill that not one single Pub even voted for was a private company.

    Private media companies that are nothing more than propaganda machines for the enslavists.

    First of all, your 80% figure is perhaps among liberal democrats but certainly not the entire population. I look at it from a personal responsibility position. Someone would love that little baby as if it was there own.

    On the other side, if we allow abortion and allow gay marriage, after several generations, there will be no more democrats. :grin:

    Those numbers vary little throughout the years.

    I've got a question for both sides here, a compromise if you will.

    Lets say we increase substantially access to "morning after" or other early-term, pill-form abortion alternatives BUT restrict substantially anything beyond say 16 weeks.

    Could anyone from either side live with something like that?

    its pretty easy to get the morning after pill, and even easier for teens now

    personally i have no problem with outlawing abortion outside of special circumstances by then....even 4 months seems quite long...you either want it or you don't and should know that fairly soon, or something is shown medically that allows for an abortion after that time period

    The florist complaint above and the advertising complaint above helps illustrate the hypocrisy on both sides of the aisle for all of those who fail to recognize the similarity. Then again, I don't believe anybody is looking to use government force to get the newspapers to print the ad.

    Go GATORS!

    And from one of our resident (admitted) liberals. I agree completely. Seems there should be some room to build from your position. Do you think we'll ever see anything resembling consensus on, well, anything re. abortion? Or, will our great, great, great grandchildren be arguing about it too?

    abortion will always be argued, because there are those who want it banned completely, and those who will push against any restrictions to prevent it from getting too close to potential outlawing.

    oh, and its a major political issue that both sides can get plenty of donations from

    Gallup is historically quite poor at polling on abortion given the vagueness of the questions. Most people want abortion banned in 90+% of cases ... except for rape, incest and the life of the mothers. Yet the pro-abortion pollsters keep putting out these meaningless polls about Roe when most don't even know what the decision granted.

    I don't post much here but long-time lurker. I'm strongly pro-life.

    To answer the question- yes definitely. I think it's a reasonable compromise.
