    You think that all the Black people faced throughout their history was 'bigotry'? That what they suffering was similar to not being sold a wedding cake at one private business establishment? It seems that every social slight can now be compared to what went on against Black people for the previous thousand years. It seems that leftists are not shy about trivializing the struggles and the history of Black people in order to make a much smaller point.

    Yes, yes, what Rosa Parks did was the same as two Gays ordering a wedding cake and going to the courts when the baker refused. We get it.

    No, they went to court, an option not easily available when Rosa Parks took her famous bus ride.

    We\re talking about prejudice against Gays, and the legalization of their murder, and Muslims are the center of such odious behavior. Have you ever spoken up against their bigotry?

    Oh so you are all for others taking a stand against bigotry but decline to do it yourself. What the Gay couple did was go to the courts, which is hardly a risky stand to take.

    No, we're talking about a case that took place in the US.

    Blah blah blah....do you really believe that this is just about a wedding cake? No one is saying the plight of gays in history is the same as blacks. But there are common elements that involve fighting against discrimination and bigotry. Most black people get it and aren't offended because they don't buy into the rhetoric of the right-wing to drive the wedge.

When you open a business, you have to comply with the laws of this country. Don't want to do that? Then don't open a business....simple as that.
    Oh but they can open a business in this country solely catering to private organizations. There is no law against that. A baker can still have a bakery providing an assortment of all occasion cakes, and a showcase of pastries he/she will sell to anyone. He/she however in his store does not have to offer wedding cakes to the public but can through private organizations that share his beliefs in marriage cater to them exclusively. Same with the photographer. He/she can offer their services for school pictures, family portraits, glamour shots etc but not offer their services for weddings. But through private organizations that share his beliefs in marriage he/she can cater to them exclusively that respect his personal religious beliefs. The same goes for the wedding planner, the caterer. In fact, I see in the very near future faith based organizations will only provide matrimony services to members of their organizations exclusively. And within those organizations, the members that are the photographers, the baker, the caterer, the printer of invitations, will form networks to provide all the services needed. Cheers! They will overcome your bigotry toward their religious beliefs.
