They are also entitled to believe what they do without being degraded for it.
I was born in 1962. I can assure you, through the bulk of my 50+ years on this Earth, when the word "marriage" came into my mind, I pictured a man and a woman, because that's what was the norm when I was born and for many years after that. Does it make me narrow minded that my mind defaults to Dan & Susan and not Dan & Stephen? The mention of a random group of native Americans or a couple of Roman emporers marrying someone of the same sex doesn't change the fact that the bulk of our citizens were born into a society with opposite sex people in marriage, and it will take decades if not generations to change that.
You certainly don't expect the accepted national perception of something to turn on a dime, do you?
#1 Nurses: Since the hospital receive federal funds they could not be required to assist with abortions.

#2 The doctors in question had been providing the woman with fertility treatments for about a year. The practice also had an exclusive contract with the insurance company for coverage. http://media.trb.com/media/acrobat/2008-08/41684837.pdf
#3 He's referencing Boston Catholic Charities who voluntarily decided to stop adoption placement since their discriminated against taxpayers but still wanted to collect $1,000,000 in government funds for doing adoption placements. Usually the claim is that the State forced them to close, not the case as there are multiple Catholic Charities still adoption placement placement.

#4 The baker who closed up shop is Sweetcakes by Mellisa who closed their storefront (the still operate from their home) because the owners said that business fell off. The bakery was not closed, as was said above, because "he was found violating accommodation laws". That is complete hyperbole. The bakery is still in business, the storefront was closed - not because of government action, but because the public didn't support their discriminatory conduct by not buying their cakes.

For some reason people believe it's acceptable to insult people who are exercising their First Amendment rights while at the same time screaming about Constitutional rights of marriage which should be honored.
Either you respect the Constitution, or you don't. I marvel how some people believe the Constitution doesn't apply except when they believe it applies.

What is incorrect?
1. Did the judge not issue the injunction and the nurses were not forced to assist with abortion?
2. Were the Doctors not treating the lesbian for infertility for a year and were they not under exclusive contract with the woman's medical insurance provider?
3. Maybe you disagree with the fact that the Catholic News Service reported that the Archdiocese received $1,000,000 in taxpayer funding?
4. You can't possibly disagree with the owner of the bakery when she said:
"“Just the whole being affected big time in our wedding industry part of the business — the vendors not referring us any more,” Melissa said when asked how the incident impacted her business. “We coasted it through the summer to see how it would be. We had quite a few wedding cakes that we had booked and people cancelled. The referrals that we would get, none of those came in. In past years, Melissa said that the family had a good cushion and that the majority of their money would come in during wedding season each summer. While this would carry the business through the winter, the stark reality was that the family’s current financial situation and the dearth of orders meant that closing the shop was a necessity, as Melissa said that she and Aaron were struggling to meet financial commitments each month.”
