He is like the Pharisee that Christ talked about that loves to stand on the corner shouting his prayers so that others can see him. The reality is...while this man professes to be a follower of Christ, his actions say something completely opposite.

    It isn't frivolous... it is discrimination. It is the same as a person being denied a job because they are a woman.

    Well...then why are you saying its ok? Why should a bigoted business owner be able to use their religion or their "moral convictions" to exclude someone from their lunch counter?

In this case we're talking individual business and you don't have a right to another man's property and labor. Ergo, government force is not appropriate. It thus falls upon our shoulders to uphold the morality of society and we must execute informed and intelligent consumerism along with social activism to push for change.
    Government laws represent societal morals... it is the fundamental part of the social contract and why we are more free with government and laws than without.

    Because it is a logical analogy that shows the error of your argument...

    Don't have to. The laws of our country protect our civil rights. Sorry if that bothers you. Get used to it.

    They shouldn't have to. If the baker doesn't like he can give back his business license, curl up in a ball and whine about it along with you and dolphin.

    No, government laws protect the rights and liberties of the individual. If you want to push your religious morals, keep them to yourself.

    Of course they shouldn't have to. But life isn't about the should. It's about rights, liberty and freedom. You cannot attack freedom merely because you do not like the results.
