At some point one person's rights are going to collide with another person's rights. At that we need to defer to common sense, which unfortunately is not all that common. So granting each and every minority group special status is going to create problems. We are ALL, each and every one of us, covered against forced servitude by the 14th Amendment, so say a gay couple wants to have a private business produce a wedding cake, and the cake maker doesn't want to do it because they disagree with gay marriage. The baker has the right to refuse to do it because the gay couple, or anybody else for that matter, lacks the constitutional right to compel them to do it. It's not a religious freedom issue, it's a 14th Amendment issue regardless of the color or beliefs of the baker. And this is where I draw the line on the gay community not wanting to be equal, but "equaler".
Now for the sake of argument let's say the gay couple wants a BLACK baker to make the cake and the baker refuses. The gay couple claims discrimination, the baker claims 14th Amendment protection. What should the judge do?
Everybody has the right to refuse to work with other people for whatever reason barring a previous contractual obligation. Over my 7 years in business I have a short list of people I will not do work for. Not because of race , religion or orientation (although one of them does happen to be gay), but because they are unreasonable assholes. One of them used to be the mayor of our town. He has since died, so I guess we are down to 2. They are both white women. Should I be forced to do business with the lesbian because she is gay but not the other because she does not have minority status? And at what point are MY rights being violated?
