    I think Jesus wouldn't support people living in sin. He was kind to the woman who was sleeping around, but he did tell her to go and sin no more.

    Also, sexuality and what someone is sexually aroused by is not the same as race nor should they be compared or equated. The baker did not want to make a cake that would be used in the promotion of something he believed was sinful (gay sex/relationships). His beliefs and business should be respected. Going into someone's private business and demanding that they, as an individual, provide a service for you that violates the person's beliefs is bullying and that is bigotry. They aren't tolerant of the baker's beliefs and want to force him to provide them with a service to go against his morals and do something that he believes may be a promotion of what is morally wrong.

    Baking a cake is not a religious practice so it gets no protection from the constitution

    True they don't, but they should. Where should the line be? Should restaurants be forced to remove pork from the menu and sell only kosher beef because some religions might be offended? Short females be granted special concessions due to their obvious disability in relation to NBA opportunities?

    Bottom line, everybody is offended by something. There is plenty of opportunity for everybody to pick and choose what they want without infringing on my right to do the same.

    Don't like a place of business, don't patronize it.

    How so? Baking a cake for the purpose of honoring a gay relationship (a gay marriage) may be something the baker views as supporting that or going against his convictions. On the flip side, if a business felt it was wrong to support religion because religion brings about all the world's ills (in their view) I shouldn't be able to force the baker into servitude and have them bake for my church event. Part of his religious practice could be to live a moral life and not do things that go against what he believes is wrong. It's part of the "free exercise thereof." Religion is more than ritual, for many it's a way of life and permeates everything that they do with their actions and live existing to honor God or live along a certain path.

    but the constitution is clear no one can be put into.......... involuntary servitude...unless a crime has been committed, discrimination is not a crime.
