No, but seriously, I'm always a hug advocate of keeping the character as close to the source material as possible, down to the skin color, so yeah. However for Deadshot, he's not really a huge main character, plus he almost always has his mask on, so it's not THAT big of a deal.

How does serving people who you believe are sinning go against your religion? Wouldn't you have to stop serving everyone instead of just discriminating against gays? Everyone is sinner.

From a Christian standpoint, very, very true. As a Christian, sometimes we are hypocrites. I don't know why so many of us, or any other religion that has sinning in it, act like being gay is so worse than any other sin. A sin is a sin, they aren't any worse than normal people.

As for that cake business fiasco, that's a different story. The Bible states marriage is between a man and a women, so to serve a gay couple is going directly against their beliefs. So in this instance, not serving a couple due to their sexuality is understandable.

The Bible also says sex is for marriage not before marriage. and you shouldn't cheat on your mate(adultery). those sins are directly against Christian beliefs, yet those businesses have no problem serving those people. So why is it understandable to discriminate against gays but not other sexual sinners?

Well to be honest, we have no way of knowing that. A caterer can directly tell if someone is gay or not, but unless yo get detailed with the costumers personal life, you will have no way of knowing if they had sex before marriage, you know, unless they have a child with them.

@petey_is_spidey: What does this have to do with religion?

Nothing really, but I was using an example of a cake catering company who refuse to service a gay couple due to their religious beliefs. It kind of ties into religion, but is not exclusively about it.

@mandarinestro: @rd189: What if it becomes something worse than that, like radical segregation in the 50's? What if hospitals start denying homosexuals, or even schools.

As far as I'm concerned, shospitals and especially schools are government ran establishments, so by law they can't do so.

However, IMO a private school can do if they please.

I guess not. I mean other businesses will be more than happy to take more customers and it's really their loss. Plus their image will be ruined. I'd feel pretty bad, if I walked into a business and they said "GO ERWAAY, we dont like er kind, ya durty mexicun!!!" But this is your opportunity to stick it to them and spend your money somewhere else.

Also, whenever the words business and force are in the same sentence, be careful and pay attention.

EDIT: Now after thinking about it, it reminds me of segregation with "No Colored People Allowed" signs. I don't know.

Lol. If someone told me that in that manner when I walked into a business, I would just laugh. Especially in that old man southern accent.

So recently a 'religious freedom' law has been introduced in Indiana, which may allow discrimination against gays and lesbians. So my question is should a private business be forced to service to a particular group of people? Especially if it goes against their religious values? Now this is not only a questioned directed towards LGBT, but also religions, races, and cultural backgrounds.

In my opinion, if a PRIVATE business does not wish to service me because I'm Christian or/and black, then honestly they don't have to, and I would not in any shape or form feel bad about it and protest or bad mouth the business. That's their choice and honestly I respect it. I just don't see the need for government to stick their nose into everything, telling business owners what to do. It's their choice and decision, and if they don't want to service you, then go somewhere else. There is no need to make a big fuss of something so small. And I really feel bad for the wedding cake business up in Oregon/Washington (forgot which one); they're facing a $100,000+ fine for their decision.
