Three years ago, I took a leave of absence from life. For over a year, I Hitch-hiked all through the USA and Canada. I stayed the longest period of time(4 months) when I was in Austin, Texas. The tales are as tall as the wild west movies but in truth, Texas is just fine. FULL OF FINE PEOPLE. I can't wait to go back and meet the friends I've made there!

I just found this post! I just read ALL the comments and for once davymid openly repented to all others at the end of his diatribes?

That's Biblical!

These folks with thousands of posts deep into IAB? They must be shut-ins?

@Davymid - you are right on about the absolving of the Old Testament laws and how Christians still yet cling to them. The OT laws were meant to be a lesson in futility. They were written by men (thus why they are also known as the Mosaic Laws), and look how many various and sundry laws there are! Then, God took those laws into His own hands and showed that He could do better than man by covering all the same ground in 10 simple commandments. When Jesus was put to death, He not only suffered the penalty for breaking commandments, but the old laws died with Him, leaving only the 10 commandments to remain. Notice, there is no commandment, not one, against homosexuality. Anything a human can do to willfully hurt another human is covered in "Love thy neighbor as thyself" (so, pedophilia which is psychologically damaging fits in there). God's Law is perfect, encompassing all things. If He really, truly, abhorred homosexuality, it'd be in there, and it's not.

Being from Texas, and frequently ashamed of my state and some of its less-than-intelligent choices and common behaviors, I was so proud of my state seeing this. Christians take note - the man who confronted the waitress and wrote the note? THAT'S a child of God. He didn't state whether he ultimately agreed or disagreed with their sexuality, and that wasn't the point. He addressed the fact that no one has the right to judge anyone. Jesus lived a sinless life and is above reproach, we are not, thus why only He has the right to judge. If you, as a "Christian" do not live by that simple ideal, you are fatally mistaken. One simple decree - Love thy neighbor. You cannot possibly have love for your neighbor if you're looking down your nose at them.

The only reason you would think otherwise about Texas is liberal media slant.
We felt your cold shoulders but thought it was one of those jealous rage things.

I think this might show that there still is southern hospitality.

This actually surprised me...Farmers Branch--one of the most conservative areas of Dallas...being this supportive? I'm impressed. I really want to hug that guy who wrote the letter.

Morals and politics are 2 different things. It's always fun to see exceptions to stereotypes.

REALLY?!?!?! "poor kids"? Someone is really posting this? How about the kids that wouldn't have a home if a gay couple didn't adopt them? If you really think all kids should be raised in a typical home, then you should start a program that gets them all adobted. Otherwise, praise the family, regardless of the makeup, that have given these "poor kids" a home!

I have been the victim of bigotry before but I dunno the setup here seems so fake. You really think a waitress who works for tips is going to throw away a tip from 4 meals and almost certainly lose her job? This scenario is so just so painfully fake.
The only thing that shocks me about this video other than the stuff that is just acting is that people interfered and then stayed in the restaurant. It's common knowledge that if you piss of the waitress they will spit in your food. I guess if I were in this situation (as a bystander) I would report it to the manager and leave the restaurant. But still man it just seems so implausible of a situation.
What would be more interesting to me is to not even have the waitress be a crazy bigot but just see if anyone reacts negatively towards them. I'm pretty sure it just wouldn't happen.

Entrapment sucks on any level.

He told her to leave and not ask for the manager or owner? FAKE!

I wonder if my sister ever goes through this with her wife and kids. Lucky for me I was raised to accept things like this so I can so I'd do the same as the first guy.

That first guy was pretty awesome. He was all cool and calm about it. His new nickname should be "situation man" or something.

It breaks my heart that people can be so cruel; but seeing someone stand up is refreshing...even if it is a farce scenario.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak for me.
-Martin Niemöller

Christ Himself spent most of His time among those that the society of the time considered "the dregs"...not preaching at them, but talking TO them, as humans. No matter their sin. THAT is what "Christianity" is. Not the bigoted, holier-than-thou bile Christians have allowed to become "the faith". The shame is on us collectively, for not speaking out against such hatred.

Just need to point out that people in NY are more apt to keep to themselves than folks in Texas. It was good to see people have empathy for others.
