    You tried to be clever but this post is pretty stupid.

    First of all, states have powers, not rights. And second, supporting the concept of federalism does not mean that I agree with every action that state governments take.

    I don't much care about changing their minds, for some it will happen with time, for others, it will take their death to wipe it out. However, I do care about controlling their actions. We don't care if people are racist, we do care if they exercise their racism openly. We don't care if people are sexist, we do care if they exercise their sexism openly. The same goes for religious bigotry. I don't care what mental poison goes on inside their heads, I care how it informs their actions. We don't allow people to be racist or sexist openly, we should not allow people to be bigoted toward gays or those of other religions either.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That is what a number of monarchs had thought and was why many of our ancestors crossed the sea.

    The bakery people seem a good example, though I am sure we could find many more, if we gave it some thought.

    Think about it instead thinking so much in a cast.

    Oh, really? Show me the law that says a person who hates blacks has to date them or have them to dinner parties at his house, or that requires a lesbian nut who thinks men should be made slaves to do those things with men. And I'd like to know just what part of the Constitution you think prevents people from discriminating against homosexuals by law. Is there possibly some kind of Freedom of Buggery Clause my copy of the Constitution is missing?

    So you think people are forced to invite gay people to dinner parties or have sex with them or whatever?

    I think the most egregious example is people might have to do business with them like the racist may have to do business with a person of another race.
