I'm not talking about whether adultery or swinging should be legal or illegal.In order for Joseph Smith to be relevant to this discussion, he would have had to try signing up with some kind of dating service but have been refused admittance and therefore been unable to be a polygamist because of it._________________Mormonism ceased being a compelling topic for me when I finally came to terms with its transformation from a personality cult into a combination of a real estate company, a Super Pac, and Westboro Baptist Church.- Kishkumen I give you bonus points for finding the relevance of Joseph's polygamy to this thread. Joseph's polygamy is irrelevant when determining whether I or anyone thinks a buisness should be forced to cater to all sexual preferences so as not to discriminate.e Harmony wasn't set up to help guys find guys, and girls find girls.
If I treat him/her unfairly or unkindly based on my suspicion, I’ve allowed my own bias (assuming a bias against that person) to turn that suspicion into rigid conclusion. Many of the clerks we meet at a store while shopping are people we know nothing about. I think in the case of discrimination against anyone, it becomes a question of just we do that. They don’t see us, but because we are intolerant of their opinions (or something else), we deliberately take another aisle. While I don't approve of adulterers, I don't go out of my way to avoid them at a grocery store unless that person was directly responsible for some pain to a close friend or family in which case I'd avoid them to avoid unpleasant speech / actions in public. Why on earth does a buisness have to cater to one oddball group but not another? Look at the founder of the religion which you defend. Although I am not sure he let Emma shag another man, so one sided swinger?
Adultery is far more common than homosexuality (if we are to believe research on the percentages). We go out of our way to avoid having to speak to them. If by “discrimination,” you mean we would deny them a job or a promotion (which they deserve on merit), many would consider that “wrong.” Of course it happens. If you look at the history of Mormon plural marriage, NONE of the additional unions were legally recognized marriages.
- Kishkumen They were unable to help out the gay folks because they were never set up to do that.
What has any of this got to do with discrimination? They refused to serve the gay people who filed the suits, but how do we know they refused because they were bigoted against gays, rather than they were simply not set up to serve them?

In the extensive above definition (available in our common denominator of the Internet), the term has various meanings and applications. I would ask just how “intolerant” must one be to fairly be called “a bigot”? - Kishkumen On the one hand we're bigots for discriminating against homosexuals.Perhaps the key is the degree to which we are “intolerant.” For example, we may suspect that someone is homosexual, but lack any real evidence that we are correct in our suspicion. Are we also bigots for discriminating against adulterers / swingers? I'd guess that makes him both an adulterer and a swinger.It's not like he's being denied employment, or housing. I'm tolerant of some opinions and lifestyles which differ from my own, but some I will never tolerate. By the show of hands on this board, how many had a great-grandmother or great-great-grandmother who committed adultery? I'm talking about whether a buisness should be forced to cater to it. I'd guess that makes him both an adulterer and a swinger.Hey, I know some women who have gym memberships at special female-only gyms.
