One of my thoughts has been
(and I am ready for the fallout and name calling and totalitarian rants to follow)
BTW, I do NOT oppose gay marriage,
live and let live is my motto.
Why would a gay person want:
a wedding caked baked by someone who doesn't approve of the wedding
a florist who doesn't approve of the wedding
a photographer who doesn't approve of the wedding
by terrorizing people into serving at their wedding through threats of closing the business, hate email, and death threats that come from not serving
I think that it would result in extremely bad karma
a negative feeling would be injected into what should be a happy occasion
I'd also fear that passive-aggression that could not be proved might enter into what should be a joyous occasion (a little less sugar, flowers that
are on the very edge of what was ordered, pictures that aren't quite right (but the person could never prove it)
Now go ahead and call me names, send me ugly insults,
I understand taking a stand as the blacks did rightfully in the 1960's.
But inviting passive-aggression into one's wedding and inviting hatred into what should be a joy filled occasion, well I don't understand why people
knowing now that this WILL happen by bakers, florists, photographers who are too afraid of what would happen if they don't comply with doing something
against their personal religious beliefs.
This post is simply rhetorical, but I expect quite ugly insults from even
mentioning that I have had this thought from a number of members
and several members in particular.
Again, I do not oppose gay marriage
but some of you won't get that, I understand.
