Most people do not like it when anyone tries to make us abide by their moral compass, but then a good chunk of those same people cheer when it happens to people they do not like. It's hypocritical.
Either everyone is equal, and all businesses must accept anyone's money and deal with anyone that can pay; or we are all allowed to abide by our own moral compasses and personal preferences. I prefer the latter personally.
I draw my personal line at racists, lawyers, bankers and politicians. I will never do business with any of those people, their money is no good in my book. Others are free to draw their own lines. That is my opinion.
Yes, that was exactly the problem with slavery. They chose to come here, they chose what kind of work they would do, they set their own price for doing the work, and then they were miserable because they had to pick cotton for gay people too. No wonder we have overcome prejudice so completely, given our obviously firm grasp on what we did wrong.
It's still absurd that people would defend intolerance, why would anyone want to live in that world where people are so divided by Sexuality, Race, Religion etc?
Being forced to work for someone, without having a choice, and being punished for refusing, is slavery.
Maybe the baker didn't choose to be a baker, maybe they were born that way.
For thousands of years men and women have been getting married. Now all of a sudden, in a grand social experiment,
Ironically a couple years later, the woman who chose to marry another woman, can change her mind, get a divorce, and choose to marry a man.
Yep, that is totally analogous to the prejudice that blacks faced after slavery in the United States.
And you know that there is no prejudice in the gay community
That doesn't have much to do with a business being allowed to discriminate.
but when you open a business that serves people and wont based on sex, religion, race, sexuality etc that is restricting someone else's choice
So nobody has any control or personal responsibility over their career path, and that fact would make them slaves if they weren't able to only slave for people they don't hate?
I hate to tell you this, but homosexuals are not a recent development. Read up on Ancient Greece- you may find it either horrifying or weird and confusing in ways you'd rather not discuss.
Yes, there is prejudice in the gay community. Does that make them appropriate targets for prejudice? If so, there is also murder in the gay community- you could take them out and make your god very happy and the courts wouldn't be able to argue with your ironclad defense.

Not sure I am understanding here. You are saying someone that rents or owns a shop are more obligated to serve everyone, than someone like me who runs my business out of my home?
