cryinoutloud: But I have a life of my own to take care of.

I feel the same way about Rosa Parks.  Didn't she have anything better to do than waste her time biatching about seating on a bus.  Just take yo' business to the back of the bus.


The hilarious part is that you liberals always attempt economic boycotts to destroy those who disagree with you. Yet if any person attempted an economic boycott of a minority business, you would be outraged. You are the people you complain about. You have simply switched skin color for politics and religion. You are no better. You at just as intolerant.

You can't reserve rights you don't legally have.  And discrimination isn't a fundamental and intractable right.

mwfark: So a lady is forced to do something against her will in a supposedly free society, and some people call this progress. I call it tyranny, and while I personally disagree with her position, I do think she should have the right to run her business as she sees fit.


These people thought they could run their business as they saw fit as well.

Personally, if someone was being a dick to me, I wouldn't sue to be able to give them my business. Quite the opposite.

But welcome to America.

If god was really on everyone's side who claims it, we wouldn't have gay marriage anywhere, the 10 commandments would be on every courthouse wall and storekeepers would be shot for saying "happy holidays"

Suck it, everyone who wears their religion and/or their politics on their sleeve.

And God, who created all things with infinite wisdom and complexity, said to the faithful; Go out with hatred and be dicks to other people because your faith makes you smarter than everyone else so why would you bother trying to understand anything?

It is a religious belief they are standing for, that homosexuality is wrong.  Comparing that to segregation is apples and oranges.  The bible never said blacks were not equal, it says the opposite.

You realize that you liberals are acting exactly the same towards religious people, right? Liberals always want respect but never respect the religious views of others. The irony is thick.

Are there really zero other wedding cake designers? This is about liberals trying to fark a religious person over. No more, no less.


It's cute that you're white knighting Houston Nick.

It's also funny that you've said so many stupid things that you're on just about everyone's block list.  So, I thought I'd reply so your idiocy could stand out.

Yup. I remembered when I planned my wedding, actual planning was the furthest thing from my mind. I picked all of my vendors solely on how much we clashed and how horrible an experience the entire process of planning would be. I figured the entire process wasn't a headache enough, I needed to begin a crusade during one of the more hectic times in my life.

This is such BS.  "Cryer and Bowman filed a complaint alleging unlawful discrimination."

Cryer and Bowman should have their attention-whoring as*es run out of town. Go to a different baker for crying out loud.

Last I checked, this bakery own remains free to believe homosexuality is immoral. He is not, however, free to discriminate against homosexuals in the public, commercial conduct of his business.

Onkel Buck: iheartscotch: I'm all for any business to refuse service; but, these guys did it the wrong way. Should have said that they were booked solid and couldn't possibly make another cake.

That may have worked but you know how some folks like to play the victim. The couple could have went home and called the bakery posing as a straight couple and then GOTCHA! The bakery owner was farked once he unlocked the door that morning. Decided to be a bigoted asshole.

Attempted murder is quite a bit higher on the penalty list than discrimination. Ma and Pa Bigot would likely get to see just how horrible homosexuality is in a very personal way for a few years or so.

2014-01-21 01:32:48 PM
Well these people are just stupid. If they didn't want to sella cake, all they had to say was "Oh, I am so sorry, but we are booked up with cake requests that week. Here, try ." Then they wouldn't be sued.

Like the liberals who boycotted Pepsi over some Jay-Z lyrics?
Like the liberals who boycotted Dunkin Donuts over Rachel Ray's neckwear?
Like the liberals who boycotted Starbucks over their decision to not be dicks to their employees?
Like the liberals who boycotted government because Congress wouldn't pass the laws they wanted?

So can a pro-abortion bakery owner be forced to make a Right To Life cake?  Can a black bakery owner be forced to make a cake for the anniversary celebration of the local KKK chapter?  Can a Kosher bakery owner be forced to bake a cake for a Neo-Nazi party?

Regardless of one's position on gay marriage, this kind of lawsuit should be cause for concern to anyone who believes in free association.

I'll tolerate a religious person, until their bigotry sets in. Then, I will call them out on their bigotry. I don't care if you hide behind a Bible, a Koran, a Torah, or The Turner Diaries. I don't care what religion you are, or what you use as an excuse, but if you use that to shield yourself from your bigotry and hatred, then you are an idiot and the worst kind of asshole.

None of those groups you listed are "protected groups", so, sure, discriminate away.

Agree or disagree with the personal views of the business owner, this is a sort of tyranny.  The guy has no problems selling cupcakes off the shelf to anybody.  Making a wedding cake is not the same.  It's an artistic endeavor.  Should some scary dumb hick christian be able to go to a gay liberal artist and ask, nay, demand, he paint them a picture of gays being burned in hell and sue the crap out of him if he refuses?

Oh man, it goes much farther than that.  The government actually forces that poor baker to maintain sanitary conditions where she prepares food.  Shouldn't she be free to prepare them however she wants?  Don't even get me started on what all the government forces her to do if she hires someone.  Why shouldn't I be allowed to employ an 8 year old for $0.25 an hour?

In constitutional terms, no such right exists. The 10th Amendment says states have the right to police the health, safety, and morals of their residents; including by prohibiting immoral discrimination against homosexuals in provision of public services. I.e., states may permissibly punish evil people.

Can't wait for the Neo-Nazi's to show up en masse on Fark preaching their crap, but private business owner Drew will be prevented BY LAW from throwing them out because DISCRIMINATION.

//and yes, people WILL set up private bakeries, restaurants, etc. if this shiat gets much deeper, and America Balkanizes further....
