High-school drop-out Publix cake decorator (who deserves a $1m retirement package) refuses to write "Cum"....
Go ahead...make fun of this individual.

But, you are aware that recently the Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution affords an individual the right of refusal to perform or engage in activities they may find morally or religiously offensive.
(LGBT couple vs Colorado baker)

Just like the Constitution affords us the right to keep arms...
That individual's has the right to refuse.

Who are we to criticize?
What does the Latin word for "with" have to do with religion or morality? I suppose the stretch can be made in a society having 27 (or, whatever the number is now) genders. The transformation of "Idiocracy" from comedy to documentary has happened because we let them get away with it: "Let's not hurt the idiot's feelings. "
That's a niggardly approach to the feelings of other people.

I concur.

Words can be like optical illusions.
You see it one way, another sees it another way.
One that maybe is offensive to them.
Besides, he might not be fluent in Latin,.

"Summa cum Laude" -----> "With highest honors/praise".

Not sure what's so religious about that. 🙄

I am shocked that they ever allowed open carry at all.

They are one of the biggest, if not the biggest, influencers in the FL Retail Federation. Based on the articles I read, it seems they spend a quarter of their lobbying time looking for tax handouts, a quarter of their lobbying time looking to cut sanitation regulations, and half their lobbying time killing gun bills.

Every year they kill open carry in FL, and for a decade they killed the parking lot law.
Yep, and they won't allow their stores in strip malls that have gun stores, adult video stores and a lot of other stuff.

Gun shops notwithstanding, I myself would not be comfortable having my wife or daughter grocery shop....right next door to Ron Jeremy's Porno Emporium.

But hey, if your cool with that....more power to you!

If there was a kickass gun store right next to Ron Jeremy's Porno Emporium, would you let them shop at that gun store?

Why yes *if they allow concealed carry...my wife knows how to protect herself.
But she needs help from her "friend".
Some shops as we know are anal about loaded weapons inside...but if it's concealed...

That's why I said "gunshops notwithstanding"
