Religious Belief or Discrimination? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple on the basis of his religious beliefs.

Critics argue the baker’s decision to deny service based on a couple’s sexual orientation is discriminatory, and therefore illegal. But religious freedom advocates say the baker has every right to not bake a cake that goes against his religious beliefs, and a private business should be free to refuse service to anyone. Is this considered discriminatory?

Critics argue businesses are not legally allowed to discriminate, so why should this case be any different? Could a business refuse to bake a cake for a black couple? No. So why shouldn’t same-sex couples be allowed the same protection?

You’re free to believe whatever you want, but you’re not free to refuse service to someone because of who they are. In this case, the baker is refusing service to the gay couple because of who they are. They are engaging in a gay marriage ceremony because they are gay men who want to get married. It’s fundamentally about who they are as people. Is this is discrimination, plain and simple?

Freedom of speech and freedom of religion do not exempt business owners from public accommodations laws, which require them to serve customers equally. However, the Supreme Court ruled in the bakery owners favor.

Tune in tonight at 6:30 p.m. est with host, Tracy L. Bell on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio. Use “all links” in this post to access the show.

Not everyone is in favor of same sex unions, on that note, we welcome your opinion.


Newt Gingrich Said: Poor Kids Have No Habits Of Working

Translation: Black and hispanic kids in this country have lazy parents who don’t work, therefore they have no work ethics instilled in them at a young age.

Gingrich may be the top runner for the republican party but the words coming out of his mouth are just as stupid, ignorant, lopsided, prejudice and misinformed as he is.

Children born into poverty aren’t accustomed to working unless it involves crime, really poor children, in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works so they have no habit of showing up on Monday morning”.

“They have no habit of staying all day, they have no habit of I do this and you  give me cash unless it is illegal.

The former House Speaker even implied that poor children’s only hope, is to aspire to be a prostitute, drug dealer or pimp! Gingrich even suggested that schools fire janitors and replace them with working class students.

The republican party has a bunch of ignorant clowns to choose from to run against President Barack Obama, making the prospects for a second term extremely promising.


“Virginia GOP Issue Zombie Picture Of Pres.Obama On Halloween”

A Virginia county GOP committee found itself in hot water after using an image of President Barack Obama with a bullet hole through his head to make a Halloween joke.

How petty of the Virginia Gop and these are supposed to be grown people.

An email sent by the Loudoun County GOP that included an image of Obama as a zombie has been widely criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike. You know how they do? Throw the rock then hide their hands, if they could burn a cross on the White House lawn and get away with it they would.

“We are going to vanquish the zombies with clear thinking conservative principles and a truckload of Republican candy,” said the email, which served as an invitation to a Halloween parade.

The image of the President was created from a copyrighted AP photo of Obama in 2006, when he was still serving in the Senate, according to The Associated Press.

“This is a disgusting and violent portrayal of the president of the United States,” said the Democratic Party of Virginia spokesman Brian Coy. The Republican governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell, called for an apology.

What do you think? Is an apology necessary?


“No Fags On The Forefront: Gay Employee Puts Messy Jesse Jackson On Blast!”


His name is Tommy R. Bennett, former National Director of Community Affairs for Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition. Bennett filed a complaint with the city of Chicago’s Commission on Human Relations last year claiming he was unjustly terminated from Jackson’s non-profit coalition.

According to published reports, Bennett’s claims are not only shocking and demeaning but states, Jackson ridiculed him in front of other employees and required him to perform ‘humiliating task; like escorting women to his hotel room and cleaning up after he had sex with them. He has also made strong allegations that the historical civil rights leader demanded oral sex from him.

On another occasion, Bennet said he was summoned to <–Jackson’s hotel room” at the Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport Hotel and was told to apply cream to Jackson who “had a rash between his legs.” an order Bennett states he flat-out refused.

According to NBC Chicago, Bennett worked for the Rainbow PUSH Coalition for more than two years as the National Director of Community Affairs. The complaint states that Bennett endured a string of discriminatory treatment from multiple supervisors, but his protests and complaints were ignored.

Bennett’s is demanding back and front pay, compensation for emotional distress and punitive damages all to the tune of $450,000. 

I wonder how many other gay/homosexual staffers have been mistreated or demeaned in other non-profit organizations? Mm..I’m sure there’s more.
