over 100 pages and nothing has changed lets go over the facts:
Owner chose to play in the public realm and open a public access business, this requires a licenses and has rules and laws that regulated it
Owner chose to break the law, commit a crime and make himself a criminal which has consequences
The judge actually let the criminal off easy,he didn't fine him or anything, he just gave him a cease and desist order.
So all the owner has to do is stop breaking the law, committing crimes, illegal discriminating and stop infringing on peoples rights, seems easy to me.
next time this dummy will think twice before breaking the law
heres some qoutes to the judges 13 page ruling
“The undisputed facts show that Respondents (Phillips) discriminated against Complainants because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage,” Judge Spencer wrote.
“Conceptually, [Mr. Phillips's] refusal to serve a same-sex couple due to religious objection to same-sex weddings is no different from refusing to serve a biracial couple because of religious objection to biracial marriage,” wrote Judge Spencer.
The order says the cake-maker must “cease and desist from discriminating” against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay couples who want to buy cakes.
“At first blush, it may seem reasonable that a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it chooses,” Judge Spencer said in his written order. “This view, however, fails to take into account the cost to society and the hurt caused to persons who are denied service simply because of who they are.”
I love when equal/human/civil rights wins over discrimination and bigotry and people who support bigotry and or discrimination freak out.
But frankly, I am more inclined to let them discriminate, but the shop owners also need to accept that their discrimination comes with consequences. One of those consequences would be freedom of speech- and that freedom of speech (alerting clients and future clients)may negatively affect that business.
What harm was caused by forcing blacks to the back of the bus?
What harm was there in white only fountains?
If you think that separate but equal is a good policy, you might as well believe that Zeus makes lightning because your ideas are just as archaic.
So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don't even know that fire is hot.
