Catholics Unite!

Stacey Campfield should claim religious discrimination after he was thrown out of a Knoxville restaurant because of his political and religious views:

Of course, since this writer believes that a business owner ought to have the right to do business or not do business in the way they might choose, we uphold Ms. Boggs' right to throw Campfield out of her establishment, thereby also losing the business of the compatriots who were with him. We are compelled to ask, however, what the reaction from our friends on the Left would be were the tables turned. What if Campfield were a prominent homosexual rights activist? Perhaps he might an open advocate for so-called "gay marriage," while, in our reverse scenario, Ms. Boggs were a Christian business owner who did not wish to be seen associating with someone engaging in activity she viewed as openly sinful and promoting political and social ideas related to the open sin that were repulsive and contrary to everything she stood for. As a result of this then, she asked Campfield to leave? The so-called "gay community" would be in outrage, they would be filing complaints to the State and federal government, shouting discrimination, and using the made-up word "homophobe" on Ms. Boggs.

The reality is that the Left are the purveyors of the dictatorship of relativism. You must believe as they do and embrace the moral relativism which they have spent the past half-century or more watering down our society with, or otherwise you are unworthy to be treated as a citizen. Dignity then, to the Left, applies only to those who embrace the twisted moral and social universe which the Left has created.

Well, you know what they say: Anyone who feels this strongly about gay people is usually gay. And since you seem to feel extra strong. Hmm, I think we know what that means, Oatney. So, if nothing else, I suppose congratulations are in order on you announcing (in code) that you're a top.

The hypocrisy here is Campfield claiming that it is "religion" which caused him to be ejected.

The Klan is christian, also, but they don't claim that they are disliked because of their religion - and I don't think that they have made "bigot" a protected class yet.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church sums up this issue beautifully in sections 2357-2358 http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/p3s2c2a6.htm

No he should not patronize the restaurant and encourage others not to. Yelling discrimination is what the left does, and it accomplishes nothing.

really, it's just about hate. plain and simple. Stacey provides an easy target to hate. Is he really a 'gay AIDS'??? (gosh, let's just start there...). He opens himself up to such scrutiny. And he should be have consequences. Sure you can turn the tables for the sake of your argument - and yes, all the other tables would probably turn too. But the heart of this matter is that this 'gay AIDS' master seems to preach something that he absolutely hates. That seems ironic in itself.

Anonymous 858 said:: "Anyone who feels this strongly about gay people is usually gay." So uneducated and untrue. I assume Mr. Oatney wants his hard working wife to make as much money as a man for the same job and feels strongly about that. Does that make Dave a wannabe woman? I love a good debate, please just make it educated and based on reason and fact and not childish attacks.
Dave, is anything being left out of this story? In other words, was Stacey thrown own because of his beliefs, or, because he was disturbing other customers and mocking and gay couple? This is a very relevant question relevant to the this outcome, because, if the owner discriminated against Stacey because of his personal views but did not loudly express them in a way that was intrusive to other customers, then he was discriminated against. On the other hand, if a nice, gay couple was minding their own business having a meal and not bothering anyone, and Stacey harassed them, then he should be thrown out. That's not discrimination, but the first scenario is discrimination, and no, restaurants can not discriminate in their right to refuse service. (Blacks not allowed to sit at the lunch counter isn't that long ago- and no, that should not have been allowed because it was discrimination, not customers trying to harass people---the whites were doing the harassing, but I digress)
So there are some relative details missing from this piece, and it's the difference between harassment and discrimination against both or either/or Stacey and other customers. The owner can not discriminate against anyone for who they are or what they believe. However, if that customer is harassing other customers with those beliefs, then it's not discrimination but harassment. So Stacey has a legal case of discrimination if he wasn't screaming views at other customers. Conversely, other customers could have had a legal case against the owners of the restaurant if the owners allowed harassment based on who they are.
Will you clarify?

Ill ask the artists to send you some MP3s to review is you want. You may differ, but I was spellbound. If it's not at that link, just Google, Sharon Cobb Examiner Americana.
