As usual you don't understand the basics of the constitution.

Perhaps you will point to some facts that back up this absurd claim? Short of that, I have no interest in personal commentary.

How is that a fail? According to posters here, he has the right to refuse service to Christians and MAGAs.

I wonder if he would make cakes for Satanic weddings.


If not, at least there would be some however slight religious justification for not doing so ... unlike the case under discussion.

Thankyou for the legal explanation.

What exactly did they want on the cake? I can't find that either. My google skills are deteriorating. I'm not asking the right questions or wording them correctly.

That would shed some light on the argument and give me enough information to make an informed opinion.

To claim that making a cake for anyone for any reason conflicts with religious beliefs is rather absurd on its face, particularly Christianity, which commands its followers to love their enemies, etc. etc. ...




43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.


Matthew 5:43-48 New International Version (NIV)

The rainbow is a sign from God promising never to destroy the earth
with another flood.The gay community stole the rainbow and corrupted
it's meaning to fit into their agenda.

What a terrible thing to say. I don't think God is going to send anybody to hell for baking a cake.
Plus, the rainbow is not a biblical reference.

The Bible isn't against homosexuality itself. But that's for another topic.

I am not sure I understand your question. Against whose religion?

There are prohibitions against physical coupling between those of the same sex. And against eating shrimp, tattoos and wearing more than one type of cloth on the body.

The Bible says nothing about marriage, aside from stating quite clearly that divorce is sinful in all cases except adultery.

Seems to me, the baker would be more concerned about not doing business with tattooed, shrimp-eating adulterers ...

Or liars. God doesn't seem to care much for habitual liars.

Indeed Angel ...



Proverbs 6:16-19: There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Do adulterers parade their adultery around on their sleeve like so many gays of the progressive variety seem to like to insist on these days?

Are we sure such a scene didnt go down in this bakery, that they werent all put off by their mannerisms and behavior at the time?

Are we to be expected to never be grossed out by certain people, and have t cater to them, no matter what?

Has the Supreme Court sided with freedom over feelings?


The Supreme Court sided with the feelings of the cake shop owners who were triggered when asked to decorate a cake for a gay wedding. And they sided against the freedom of the gay couple to have a cake decorated for them.
