This is a great ruling.
The market can now decide.
If people don't like the fact that the baker will not bake a cake for gay weddings, then they can protest by not giving the bakery their business. If the bakery suffers no backlash in terms of business, then guess what. Nobody cares about this issue.

The problem is the gay army that comes for you if you don't bend the knee.

This is a win for all people, even gays.

The baker didn't win. He still can't discriminate. That's the confusion about the ruling.

In actuality, it appears the baker refused to make the cake before any design or decoration was discussed.

In reality it also appears that this issue occurred before gay marriage was even legal in Colorado, too.

Of course, let's leave aside the argument that if you are opposed to the concept of gay marriage on religious grounds, how you decorate the cake is immaterial. It's personal participation in the celebration of something your beliefs view as sacrilege that is the objectionable part.

So do you think the baker needs to make sure a couple isn't planning an open marriage with multiple sex partners before he agrees to bake the wedding cake for them? After all, I would think that might be a wee bit objectionable.

Will the baker be consistent with his Biblical beliefs?

10 Situations Where Christian Bakers Should Refuse to Bake Wedding Cakes

I don't know why this is such a huge issue, since a private business is a private business. Freedom of speech, right to bear arms does not apply, nor do many other obligations that the government is bound by -- a private business is not. As long as they are upfront about it.

Basically, it should come down to this -- Personal Beliefs or Money. If you open up a business on the main street in your town, it is open to EVERYONE, that's what business is. However, if the owner feels very strongly about their personal beliefs, more than they care for money, they should be able to run their business that way. Put it on the door and let the public decide who comes in and who does not.

I think the issue here is that some people think the owner should be able to have all the money and all the personal beliefs too -- no. You open a business, it's open to everyone. You want your beliefs to dictate who you serve -- absolutely, you have every right to. But it will affect money, because the public also have every right to know whether they are served on not before they even enter.

Right. OK. I might have it mixed up with another case. I know there were pictures of a specific cake.

But, YES! He rejected them just because they are gay.

That is NOT support for Creative Design.

Take the knee? Where in the Bible does it say you can discriminate? You don't need to answer that, because it doesn't.

Where does it say you can pick and choose which sins you like or dislike? It doesn't.

So if he sells to some sinners and not others, it's not religious, because his text doesn't say anything about that.... It's a personal choice, and it is discrimination.

Again, I don't necessarily care, because no one needs cake... But let's call it what it is.

Thats the idiocy here.

I can walk in and purchase a wedding cake, complete with specifications of color, composition, and general size/shape. I can complete this purchase without ever once mentioning my preferred method of having sex. And in so doing, remove any possibility of someone taking issue with my preference and denying service.

It seems pretty simple. Used to be people didn't feel the need to share every facet of their life. Today...you can be sure you will get more than you want to hear when having even the most superficial conversations.

i think he can indeed not bake the cake again and you are short siding the ruling

the defense for the buyer was hostile toward christians

nothing except a different defense would change that

I do not agree that opposition to a gay marriage is enough for a baker to discriminate by religious belief.

I do agree that the baker not be required to make reference to it being a gay marriage in Creative Design.

To some degree, this is the problem with the gay community. The desire to tell everyone what they like in the bedroom. A lot of us just don't give a d*amn what someone does in the bedroom. To be frank, if so many gay folks weren't sashaying and twirling advertising to the world if they are a top or bottom, no one would care for the most part.

Imagine if a bunch of guys got together and used twin peaks as a symbol to tell the world, we like tig bitties. I mean why is it necessary to advertise one's sexual preference to the public?

Is this the guy who did dog weddings?

Is he the one who did a divorce cake?

To those who suggested that business owners should be able to put up signs telling them who they only serve to, we should not forget the history.




And yes yes yes I know! Godwin's law strikes again!

It's kind of hard to hide it when you walk in with your betrothed to discuss a wedding cake. Its not uncommon at all for both people to be involved in the decision.
