I don't think this person should be forced to make the cake, but I can at least conceive of how a legal argument might be made in this direction.
What I REALLY find objectionable is the forced "sensitivity training." For Ing somebody to provide a good or service is bad enough but saying they need to be mentally changed by the government is the kind of brainwashing one associates with Maoist China or North Korea. What is the legal basis for forcing this person to undergo some kind of government mental indoctrination?
If someone commits a crime, you don't slap them on the wrist and send them on their way.

Well, is the the extreme its going to take for people to realize that if someone is a human, you should treat them as one?
Right, respect the baker's right to his beliefs and go elsewhere. I am sure that is what you meant, right?

Like you said, you should never go out of your way to punish someone for their personal choices, especially if they aren't harming you in any way.
Gay people should be happy at how far we have come with gay rights, and try not to push people to far.
