When and where did you get your law degree?

you are not completely right

I think you are thinking of people like this

Indiana's Church of Cannabis Growing Like a Weed - US News


to be a fully recognized religion involves a lot more than being a start up

people have started religions claiming "donations and sex" were their sacrament to get around prostitution laws, without success.

1) What anitram said.

2) Do these religions get recognized by the government?

Does scientology get recognized by the government?

I know Australia acknowledges pastafarianism, as a guy was allowed to wear a colander on his head on his driver's license picture as a religious expression.

There was a story on the Seattle news tonight similar to the homophobic pizzeria story. Some florist in eastern Washington refused to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding, and the state has brought a consumer protection suit against her. Someone started a crowdfunding campaign for her legal fees, and it's approaching $90K. Amazing how many people will donate to hate.

Donate to hate in the name of "love" and Jesus.

The best part is that probably 90% of the people donating would be better off paying off their debts than tossing money away like this.

Santorum comes out and states it's a two way street for tolerance

Uses example of a gay print shop owner being asked to make tshirts that state "God hates fags".

I don't think he understands freedom of speech and discrimination. While that phrase would probably bother the owner, it's not in the same fucking league.

Why is this so hard to understand?

the shop owner would have a right to say no, based on his deep held religious beliefs that God loves everyone

Yes, after Scientology bullied and harassed the IRS (by bringing umpteen bazillion lawsuits against them, among other harassments) until the IRS finally just said "fuck it, will you go away if we say you're a religion and tax exempt?" and ta-da.

So then pretty much anything constitutes as religion...

This out-loud ignorance on the right is absolutely infuriating.
