p.s. the statistics on male to female population in ancient greece was like 2 females to every 100 or so males. female infanticide was rampant.

Christians get a hard time while a muslim bakery doing the same thing doesnt?
Did you actually read what is going on?
1. an anti-gay guy tried to get a baker to write anti-gay stuff on a cake. She refused. Perfectly legal. She did not refuse to bake a cake.
2. somebody tried to get the Muslim baker to do something they don't do. They did not refuse to bake a cake.
The Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding - - just a standard cake - - lost his case because of State Law.

I'm not a sympathizer but why would you want to take the most special of special cakes to a person you may know is not interested in your cake? I know it was to prove a point but even if they said yes and you knew deep down inside that they did not want to would you risk having your cake made at that bakery??? Man if I was gay I would open up a gay bakery...you would have not only a huge community going to your place but all the people with guilt shopping there...ca-ching

Maybe some do treat Christians badly today. And yes that is never justified.
But you need to remember that some Christians (read Fundies) treat gay people badly. So that's where the hatred comes from.
A gay person shouldn't be refused to have cake made for wedding for example. This is mistreatment.
Here is what I predict will happen. At some point in the future - I don't know how long it will take - maybe in the next 10 years, or maybe in the next 70 years, Christians will start to come to terms with homosexuality not being the "evil abomination"
Actually, I taped this video a long time ago but due to audio corruption issues, was never able to upload it. Now that my in-house whizz kid, Jared was able to salvage the footage, I am passing it onto you.

Can we not agree that dismemberment and murder does harm but not wanting to participate in what is felt to be wrong is way different? And also that some are making a small disagreement about serving willingly verses against ones will, into a scenario with overkill logic that defeats the nature of what Freedom itself means?
