    Okay, so you have never spoken up against the bigotry Gays face in Muslim countries despite them facing the penalty of death. Instead your concern is the denial of a wedding cake being sold for a wedding.

    Perhaps you can broaden your efforts a little if your interest is genuinely honest about fighting prejudices against Gay people.

    Oh its all about 'wings' again, is it? Have we now moved on from Blacks?

    Did you not read the links I sent? Perhaps you should explain where I "make stuff up"?

    Nope....just pointing out that right-wingers such as yourself, always attempt to turn black people against gays by crying "Can you believe this!!!! Gays are trying to compare their treatment to yours.....aren't you OUTRAGED????"....LOL....Just like Republicans trying to figure out why black people don't vote for Republicans. The fact is, black people are just as smart as anyone else in this country. They understand that people aren't saying the two plights are exactly the same...and they understand that bigotry is wrong....so good luck trying to drive that wedge. Didn't work the first 1485 times you tried it, maybe the 1486 time is the key!

    But in the near future they will if it continues being forced into court for saying no.

    Colorado Judge:  Bakery Owner discriminated against gay couple [W:113:123:292:647]How gays are treated in Muslim countries is not the topic of this thread. Please return to addressing the OP.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    If they want to limit their profits by limiting their customer base, then good for them

    I hope all the bigots in this country limit their business and leave the majority of demand available for decent moral people to fulfill

    There are some things to many that are more important than money. Being at peace with one's conscience trumps making a buck for many good folks. You want them to offer their talents toward something that goes against what their God teaches. I find it pretty brazen of anyone to engage in violating another in that way. Since most marriages still occur in churches, synagogues, mosques, I don't see these people with strong convictions of faith being hurt one bit as far as revenue.
