  • And The Brown Shirts March On....

    How can we avoid a civil war????

    Hands On Originals discriminated against the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization of Lexington when it refused to print the group's Lexington Pride Festival T-shirts in 2012, according to a hearing officer in the case.

    Greg Munson issued his decision Monday. The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission released it Tuesday morning.

    "The evidence of record shows that the respondent discriminated against GLSO because of its members' actual or imputed sexual orientation by refusing to print and sell to them the official shirts for the 2012 Lexington Pride Festival."

      Just because the majority of those polled says something is okay doesn't make it so.

      And this sort of thing (i.e. the op) has been going on in Canada for years. Religious rights and freedoms are ALWAYS trumped by special interest groups who think their rights have been trampled on.

        I wonder what would happen if the KKK tried to force a black-owned print shop to print up racist t-shirts?

            I wonder if we could encourage that . . .

                Hmm...I'd side with your position if the group wanted Hands-On to print shirts supporting same-sex marriage or something like that. Even though I believe they ought to support it, they shouldn't be required to make things that they don't agree with. But all the GLSO asked them to do was print out shirts saying "Lexington Pride Festival." How is that controversial? The design itself is fairly simple and innocuous and doesn't contain graphic images or suggestive language or anything of the sort.

                This isn't even remotely close to enslavement.

                  Is the KKK part of a protected class?

                    When it comes to human-rights legislation it has an impact.

                    And this sort of thing (i.e. the op) has been going on in Canada for years. Religious rights and freedoms are ALWAYS trumped by special interest groups who think their rights have been trampled on.
                    Perhaps the rights of special interests groups have been trampled on. Don't you care? If the “religious rights and freedoms” are “ALWAYS" trumped then perhaps this indicates that the religious groups were demanding their "rights and freedoms" at the expense of the rights and freedoms of others.

                    Welcome to the new world, America!
                    Indeed! There have been many advances. Equal Civil Rights for all citizens is now almost universal - from blacks to women and now homosexuals.

                      The KKK is not a designated “Place of Public Accommodation” under the Civil Rights Act, thus it’s not subject to the requirements of the Act. It's actually a designated a Hate Group according to the Southern Poverty Law Centre for being dedicated to denying equal rights to blacks, Jews, immigrants, gays and lesbians and, until recently, Catholics. It has something in common with the Inquisitions in that it desires to exclude those who don't conform to their own values - not unlike Evangelicals in this regard.

                        The Lexington Pride festival is a gay pride festival (I live only 75 miles from there) http://www.lexpridefest.org/site/?page_id=2

                        So if the KKK wanted to force a black-owned business to print "White Pride Festival" shirts, you would support that?

                          they claim to be a religious organization (Christian Identity Movement) that believes in the separation of races and the superiority of the white race. So, yes they are. More so than LGBT which are not covered under the US constitution, but only the city fairness ordinance.

                            the "place of public accommodation" would be the VENDOR not the client, dipwad. And as a religious group it has the protection of the constitution no matter how hateful its message is. In fact, they had a march in a town where my brother was a police officer and he and his fellow officers, white and black, were required to protect them from the crowds as they marched and made hate speech.

                            Again, stick to your own country and stop trying to tell us how ours works.
