    You have been told over and over again that this is a civil rights issue. Continue to disagree if you must but dont act like it's surprise when it is justifiably used to support an argument.

    Ah no. They were not being served 'the same.'

    Blacks had to sit separately, were treated differently and believe me...did not get the same quality of food or service.

    The gay couple was able to buy stuff, but were not able to buy the same thing as a straight couple....a wedding cake.

    Separate is not equal. Per SCOTUS.

    Worth repeating.

    The baker broke the law as written. Now if it were me, I'd have sued the baker and still bought a cake from somewhere else. Anti-descrimination laws are in place for a reason and by serving the public you have chosen to abide by those laws.

    Well then....you obviously studied a distorted view of his life. Because if you truly understood the teachings of Jesus Christ you would know that they are diametrically opposed to the actions of this bigoted baker and you wouldn't be defending his actions.

    Only the baker is discriminating....despite your many failed attempts to flip reality. Who was "discriminating" in the lunch counter sit ins? Why do you side with the persecuted bigots who refused to serve blacks? Why should the black patrons have to go down the street to another restaurant so as to not "offend" the sensibilities of the "white only" restaurant owners?

    But the question Grant is "Why should black people have to walk down the street to a restaurant that will serve them?" True....they could get their meal elsewhere...but I disagree that that is what most "rational" people would do. I think most people would stand up for what is right and call the bigots out.

    When were blacks counted as 3/5ths of a person?

    I am 100% for gay marriage, bigotry against gays/lesbians is ridiculous and I think this bakery owner is probably an ignorant pig.

    BUT

    I think any private business should be able to not sell to anyone they want, for any reason.

    Hey, if the public don't like it, don't buy from them and put them out of business.

    I know I would never buy from a shop that discriminated in this way.

    Three-Fifths Compromise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Three-Fifths Compromise was a compromise between Southern and Northern states reached during the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 in which three-fifths of the enumerated population of slaves would be counted for representation purposes regarding both the distribution of taxes and the apportionment of the members of the United States House of Representatives. It was proposed by delegates James Wilson and Roger Sherman.

    Delegates opposed to slavery generally wished to count only the free inhabitants of each state, but delegates supportive of slavery, on the other hand, generally wanted to count slaves in their actual numbers. Since slaves could not vote, slaveholders would thus have the benefit of increased representation in the House and the Electoral College. The final compromise of counting "all other persons" as only three-fifths of their actual numbers reduced the power of the slave states relative to the original proposals, but increased it over the northern position
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!
