    So...does he deny people of other religious faiths of having wedding cakes?

    The problem here is you are trying to make a ludicrous case for the guy, when the only people he was discriminating against in this matter was a gay couple. If he had made cakes only for fellow Christians then he might have had a case, but it was pretty clear that he was discriminating against these customers because they were gay, not out of religious principle.

    Wow, looks like you are kinda getting a clue. One is definitely against the beliefs of some religious people, the other clearly is not... so I am glad you can discern a difference, you are coming along nicely now.

    still have no facts to support you strawman huh?

    all you can do is become uncivil, try failed insults and try to deflect huh?

    well when you are ready to stay on topic we'd love for you to present any facts that back up your false claim.

    No, what you are for is discriminating ONLY on the behalf of gay people... that is what you advocate without the slighted concern for another's religious beliefs. Yours are not just ludicrous, it is arrogant and it is unconstitutional, whether you like it or not. You don't get to decide when they bake a cake, they get to decide... take your bigotry elsewhere, please.

    1. I don't live in Colorado so I have no voice in the matter.

    2. The law that was violated by the baker was the Colorado Anti Discrimination Act, not a law that I made or proposed in any shape, way, or form.

    3. The baker chose to obtain a business license in Colorado and run his business in Colorado under that state's laws. I did not make that choice for that baker.

    4. The baker chose to deny ONLY gay customers of a wedding cake and to base his decision on religious sensibilities. I was not that customer.

    5. The court decided that the baker violated the state law. I was not the judge.

    So how am I involved? What exactly did I do?

    I certainly want to protect religious beliefs. But do I want to do so to the expense of others? Did you ask at any point what the religious beliefs of the customers were? Did you care? Or because the baker's religious views aligned with your own did you feel his discrimination was justified?


    All those personal attacks revealed a lot about your psychology and paranoia. You, you, you! I find it sad when people resort to assumptions about what people intend. The moment you jump into pretending you know another man's intentions, you lose any credibility you have in a discussion and embarrass the hell out of yourself. It is childish, immature, and self effacing.

    Colorado judge: Bakery owner discriminated against gay couple - Washington TimesA Colorado judge ruled Friday against a bakery owner who refused to prepare a cake for a gay couple’s wedding reception.

    Administrative Law Judge Robert N. Spencer ordered Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, to “cease and desist from discriminating against complainants and other same-sex couples by refusing to sell them wedding cakes or any other product [he] would provide to heterosexual couples.”

    Another ruling that bigotry will no longer be tolerated in America.
    If this baker is truly concerned about his religious beliefs....perhaps he should start by trying to be more "Christ-like" and try living the principles that Jesus Christ taught.



    Jesus Christ would never give or sell cake to some people and refuse to give or sell cake to other people.
