    “I cannot unite people in a way that I believe would conflict with what the bible teaches,” Hitching Post owner Donald Knapp said

    Now, if that is not some serious cherry picking… So, what does the bible teach about second marriages?

    “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”

    JR – because these people are only Christians when it comes to hating gays.

    Or Muslims.

    Sorta like how “this is a Christian nation!” never means “so we should help the poor, the sick, the needy, the destitute!”

    Oh, just wait until it`s empty of people and burn it down. When insurance rebuilds, burn it down again. Repeat indefinitely until the Chapel gets their wish. No more weddings for gays, no more weddings for anyone.

    Since Idaho has no nondiscrimination law that covers gay people, all they have to do is move outside of any city that may have a gay rights ordinance. That still leaves almost all the state (at least by land). This isn’t really that big a problem in Idaho. They are just playing victim. And since not allowing gays does cause real damage to gay couples (usually under the worst possible circumstances like medical emergencies), then it is ridiculous to claim that you are against gay people but don’t want to harm gays. Nonsense.

    When the cake shop owner refused to provide a cake to a gay couple, a local radio station decided to test the bakery with fake calls requesting special event cakes for various scenarios that clearly go against the bible. One was a lady calling for a cake for her young teenage daughter having a child. She casually mentioned how it’s out of wedlock. The cake shop agreed to make it. Another lady said she was having a divorce party and wanted a divorce cake. They agreed to make it. Another man called for a bachelor cake with a stripper ornament on top. They agreed to make it.

    Their clear anti gay bias was revealed in that week of fake phone calls.

    These Christians use the bible to veil their own disdain for gays.

    This sadly is an example of the typical North Idaho attitude of business. Otter will not go down without a fight. If I lived in Idaho I would have moved YEARS ago to where I am now, Wash. State!

    Coeur d’Alene is at the north end of a beautiful lake surrounded by trees and vacation homes. For some reason it is also a favorite retirement location for cops and a magnet for survivalists and other right wing nut jobs. I have no idea what the explanation for all that is.

  8. says

    I support the right of these religiously afflicted numbskulls to go out of business. I also support their right to whine and cry about how they are the victims.

    Stupid people need something to pass the time too, and for a Christian pretending you are persecuted by somebody else’s marriage is like a shortcut to virtual martyrdom.

    I would like to think that gay people have more class than to want to be married in such a venue. Even the gay people of Idaho can not be that far away from fashionable venues.
