    In all fairness, there are two entirely separate and unrelated stories about bakers who didn't want to make cakes for gay people. It's an oddly specific trend.

    However there is a difference between expressing opinion and refusing service based on discrimination.

That is absolutely irresponsible and stands in scary contrast to what had made the US exceptional in the past.

    In other words, feel free to air their opinions publicly.
    So World Watcher and I responded to your questions, and you got rather abstract (unclear references to a song). It seems that businesses could express their beliefs and still not refuse service and discriminate.

    My main point, in case it was lost, was that this alone might solve the business's issues with having to serve the demographic that they object to. They should not be ashamed to do so, correct?

    So I am reposting this because (I didnt see an answer and) after all the discussion, I'm still unclear.

    Not trying to muckrake, I'd just like to know. I think if business owner did so, they'd find their business burned to the ground but that is because that's my perception of the KKK. Not sure if that's accurate but I believe that's the undercurrent still, if not on the surface.

    Edit: Taylor may just have alluded to it in post 202.

    It all makes me want a slice of gay wedding cake.
