unless they come up with a defense that is not hateful toward christians then yes this ruling will be applied nation wide.


home.ubalt.edu...


Before describing the protections of the Bill of Rights, it is important to note that they originally were interpreted as restrictions only on the power of the federal government, and not the power of the states. It was not until the twentieth century that the Supreme Court began to hold some of these rights enforceable against the states


Yup the adoption of the 14th amendment applied the federal constitution to the states with the exception of the 7th amendment.

The laws of one state have no force and effect on the laws in another state. The full faith and credit clause of the Constitution defines what must be accepted by other states and those guidelines are established by Congress.

As for this ruling actually no it would not be. This case deals solely with the application of one states laws and the violation of one individuals rights by the misapplication of that law. Hence narrow ruling.

It is also the only reason the federal judicial system had any standing to hear the appeals of the state court rulings.

On the other side, the gay couple could have sent in a straight friend to order the cake so the baker would be fooled into making it. Then when he delivered the finished cake -- surprise! Its a gay wedding!

A straw purchase...


A. It is not illegal to purchase a cake. Even if you're gay.

B. The person ordering the cake could truthfully say they are handling it for the couple in question - just not specifying what the sexual orientation was, because its not really any of the baker's business anyway.

Is it racist to say "nuttier than a fruitcake"?

My uncle always says that. And he's white. Gross!

Not all straw purchases are illegal.
en.wikipedia.org...

A straw purchase or nominee purchase is any purchase wherein an agent agrees to acquire a good or service for someone who is unable or unwilling to purchase the good or service themselves, and the agent transfers the goods or services to that person after purchasing them. In general, straw purchases are legal except in cases where the ultimate receiver of goods or services uses those goods or services in the commission of a crime with the prior knowledge of the straw purchaser, or if the ultimate possessor is not legally able to purchase the goods or services.

So that is what dinesh was pardoned for.

Cause comey went after dinesh cause dinesh got some people to donate to candidates and told them to use their own money to donate and that later he would repay.

seems legal to me unless he gave money upfront to them to donate

It doesnt mean that the baker held gay people in contempt. It was soley a religious disagreement with same sex marriage. Personally I dont believe you should try to put them out of business, they would simply not be getting gay wedding cake orders.


Hmmm, I really need to not post things early in the morning, because apparently people are mistaking my intent. I never said they deserved to be put out of business, but if not making that cake is upsetting people so much, then they should use word of mouth and see if the free market puts them out of business.

When I get a business, I’m going to start turning away Christians and Trump supporters first!
