    Whaaaa?!?? They cater. They should have to serve me. I'm not forcing them to EAT the pork, for chrissakes, just be around it, smell it, see everyone else eating it and pouring sauce on it and talking about how awesome it is. I'm just asking them to set up shop and have their baked bean platter be right next to my roasting pig, where I'm also displaying a sign that says, "Pork! The best meat! Everyone should eat it, at every meal!" They might be in the picture next to the pig or the sign, but whatevs.

    Oh, I'm also going to have live nude strippers there, not wearing burkas, so.... you know, they better look away. But if they don't cater, I'm suing the shit out of them. Intolerant fucking assholes.
    There's a joke about a woman on her period in there somewhere....

    Considering that they didnít address that at all, I am sure that someone will try to use this ruling as a way to not serve LGBT

    I tend to think the line should be whether what youíre selling could be described as an artistic commission or not should be the litmus test. Is it a cake that you would have made for a straight couple, you should sell a gay couple the same item, is it personalized such that it requires the baker (or painter, scuplter, etc) to personalize it in a way that tacitly endorses something they believe is immoral? In that case I think refusal of service is reasonable. But I do think the standard should be more than names in icing, or cake toppers.

    Say for instance an artist is asked to paint a gay couple kissing, I think being forced to paint it, for the purpose of non-discrimination would be a violation of the artistís right of free expression.

    Businesses are not public services, they are simply part of commerce. Forcing a business to provide services that they don't want to is a terrible idea.

    I am sure they felt the same way about buses and lunch counters at one time.

    Total bastardization of Christianity if you ask me. It is what it is though.
    This wasn't gay people wandering into a bakery and being horrified that they wouldn't be served. This was intentionally designed to force a court case, because the activists will never stop at tolerance. They want total acceptance, under penalty of law.

    And they won't stop at the old meanie Christianity. After they have finished with that, they will have no use for smiley face Christianity either, because what's the point?

    Freaky. I am listening to the theme song to The Fresh Prince wen I read this post and "welp, smell ya later" hit my ears right before I read the last line of yours. Just freaky.

    Oh, and good on the Justices. It is the right decision. Skid explained it best earlier in the thread. To force someone to serve/make/deliver goods that are against their beliefs is tantamount to fascism. You know, that thing that the left is saying the right is.

    People are dumb.

    If a dude won’t bake you a cake, go down the street to the next bakery. Why would you want to spend hard earned money in an establishment that doesn’t want your business?

    Other than the desire to stir shit up and play the victim, I don’t see another reason.
