Because people come to the comments section of every SJW article and make the same shrill rants. It's easy flamebait and gets way more page views than an actual "news for nerds" topic.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

Now you tell me! And I've been wasting all this time stealing underpants!
Perhaps "wouldn't mind" is the wrong word.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: I'll bet you're the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddam common courtesy to give him a reach-around.
We get it, NSA. You're going to break into my computer, spy on everything I do, 24/7, keep me under your microscope. For "national security." Got it. But as long as you're fucking me in the ass...Jesus Christ could you nail the assholes who are holding schools for ransom? Do the whole "at least the trains run on time" thing?
(I know Mussolini's trains didn't, but...try.)
but pilot suicide/ homicide is just as much a bizarre outlier as murderous hijacking
Do we have the score on this? From my brief skimming of MAYDAY episode synopses, it seems about the same number have occurred. However, poor maintenance, and errors by ground crew and pilots are 10-20 times more likely to kill you.

People should be able to serve whom they want and I refuse to bow down to the tyranny of the minority
To those who modded me as a troll, I am aware you do not know what trolling is. I expressed a dissenting opinion, and you chose to bury it rather than respond. You are cowards.
I stand by my right to chose what business I do. If you do not want to do business with me, that is fine, but I have the legal right, as does any closely held company in the US to do business within my religious parameters. The US Supreme Court has already backed up that opinion. Feel free to boycott me, I am good at what I do and my skills are in more demand than I can reply to anyways, and I could retire now should I want to. I will stand by my freedom.
You dislike me, you feel I am a bigot and misanthrope, why would you want to give me your money to begin with? Further were the shoe on the other foot, do you want the government telling you that you must do business with me? I did not think so.
You are full of vitriol and shame, I am full of neither.
No, no mockery implied. I actually am Catholic and believe in the fairy tales.
My question was rhetorical, though. Non-believers, like most of
I can't help but notice that neither the summary nor the links actually say what the bill says. Instead, we get the TL;DR, left-wing interpretation of its effects. I'm guessing, through some quick searches, it's meant to prevent what happened to the baker who had to shut down because while he had served many gay people in the past (supposedly; I don't tend to announce my sexual orientation before buying pastries) but refused to provide a wedding cake for a gay couple.
The Constitution is meant to restrict the government, not the people. People are always going to do things, in business and society, that you dislike. This is not about "Jim Crow" segregation that was institutionalized by the government. I'm not sure how far we can restrict people's right to freely associate before we realize we've gone too far. Maybe it will be once Westboro Baptist demands a "God Hates Fags" float in a gay pride parade.
"-1, Troll" doesn't mean, "-1, I disagree".
