    And many atheists, agnostics, Muslims and Hindus believed a lot of different things as well. What is your point?
    More important, the case isnt about blacks, no, but it IS about civil rights, which blacks and women both had to fight for as well.
    It is about civil rights on both sides of the counter, which is just the point. Blacks and women are off topic.

    But what you are displaying is sheer bigotry toward their religious beliefs and according to the Constitution it is against the law for you to violate those religious beliefs by forcing them through laws to do so.

    This is not about racism.

    No, sheer bigotry is what the baker displayed and these laws are not unconstitutional

    Which laws are not unconstitutional? Has this case made the Supreme Court yet?

    You should be embarrassed to have done it.

    I hope you were being sarcastic.
    Of course I wasnt. Rosa Park's act was not the only one to move the black civil rights cause forward...it was made up from thousands of people raising awareness, participating in civil disobedience, bringing law suits, submitting legislation, redrawing boundaries.

    It is just another group, legitimately IMO, fighting for their civil rights. It's not 'just about a wedding cake,' you cant really believe that, can you?

    Nope, it's about civil rights. Blacks are not the only ones to have fought for their civil rights in this country.

    These laws forcing businesses with moral convictions be forced to violate them, goes against most state constitutions as well. What makes these laws unconstitutional is they are being created by judges who unconstitutionally are legislating from the bench.

    Hyperbole never wins debates.

    Why do you assume they made the cake and then didn't sell it?

    Typically wedding cakes are special order item and made on demand, therefore cakes are not made in advance of the purchase agreement.
