Artistry has nothing to do with refusal to sell a generic wedding cake for a gay wedding, and you know it. Every example I have seen of gay couples asking for wedding cakes from Christian bakers, have been very tasteful and traditional cake designs - the exact same work of artistry that they would be willing to do for anyone else. It ain't the artistry - it's simply whom the cake is for. That makes it discrimination.

I see nothing wrong with this. Don't be so "biggoted".
..there is right and wrong...no kind of sort of, right and wrong...
Something's wrong with the Republican logo. The stars are upside down. Five-sided stars that point upwards—like those on the Democratic donkey and the American flag—traditionally symbolize the forces of good. An overturned pentagram, however, represents the goat's head of Satan and the forces of evil—and there are three on the Republicans' elephant. The GOP's stars weren't always upside down; some say the change occurred around 2000. When I called up the RNC to ask about the logo's history, staffers invariably said, "we'll have to get back to you on that" and never did. "Huh, that's interesting," said one, who clearly hadn't noticed Satan hiding in plain view
