You roll a 1. Your hand shoots towards your mug of coffee, you watch in horror as you punch the mug off the table... and into the lap of your DM. He is angered. This bodes poorly for your campaign. Critical Hit d20 Mug: http://j.mp/1ei0Ow7

The Clerks Refusing Marriage Licenses to Gay Couples

One way we're not talking about this. This isn't about religion, it's about Supremacy.

The Bible may have a few restrictions on homosexuals, but it has a TON on heterosexuals. IF this was about religion, we would have seen other couples turned down before now. It's highly improbable that these or other clerks have, up until this point, managed to only issue licenses for couples who are in perfect alignment with their religious values. We should have been seeing clerks turn down couples where one or both have been divorced, couples where a mother is marrying someone who is NOT the father of her child, interfaith and YES, even interracial couples. 

But we haven't. And that's why this is about supremacy. 

In the past, supremacists of the racial variety felt that minorities were inferior, and it offended them to have to treat "undesirables" like human beings. They felt being forced to treat the unequal as equal was "tyranny", and yes, even a violation of "religious liberty". We've heard this song before, this is just a 2015 cover of the same old bigoted song.
"You are inferior and deserve nothing but contempt from me."

There are times when accommodations for religious beliefs make total sense. Like with dress codes. Generally, allowing people of faith to wear religious hair/head/face coverings in public doesn't stop them from performing their job. Most of the time, dress codes are about appearance, not practicality. Accommodations don't impact performance. 
But here we have people refusing to do their work. Worse, people in tax-payer funded positions turning down tax-payers who have a LEGAL RIGHT to the service they are seeking. THAT cannot be accommodated, as it sets the precedent for someone to essentially refuse to do their work yet still collect a paycheck. It's allowing a government official to ignore a court ruling and to decide all on their own which parts of the constitution they will adhere to and which ones they will completely ignore. Undermining the whole point of having a constitution in the first place.

Everyone will eventually be at a job that puts them in the crossroads between their values and their work. In the private sector you can make efforts to change things from within, but when you work for the government, you work for EVERYONE, not just members of your faith, everyone. If you cannot do the work without feeling your values are being compromised, the only honorable and moral move is to resign and seek an employer that aligns with your values. They do exist. Government isn't, and shouldn't be, one of them.

+Joe Steinbring​ do you think I'd be able to transfer my FreedomPop phone number to a pay-as-you-go real phone?

Yes. It might take an amount of effort, though.  I've never transferred a number out of FreedomPop but my sister has and she said that it was less than straight-forward.  She's also impatient, though.

"At the very least, this current research presents a fairly new way to think about lonely people. It’s not that they need to brush up on the basics of social skills — that they’ve likely already got down. Instead, lonely people may need to focus more on getting out of their own heads, so they can actually use the skills they’ve got to form friendships and begin to find a way out of their isolation."
It’s not because they don’t understand social skills.

Today in Geek History: Blade Runner released in theaters in 1982.

We've… seen things you people wouldn't believe… Cars that drive themselves. Voyager 1 reaching interstellar space. The rebirth of our favorite series for a new generation. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain.
