The way I see it, why would a gay person force a fundamentalist Christian bakery to make a cake for them anyway? Who knows what they will put in that cake if one forces them to serve them. Im sure there's plenty of other willing bakeshops that can accommodate their requests- and that way they wont have to worry about whats in those cakes. If a person does discriminate, let them be known throughout the whole community and let the market decide as to whether their business gets ruined because of their bigotry, dont let the government do that.

I think the problem is the dog whistle is getting heard by the rest of us... Got to love watching him squirm on this issue.Pence did not answer directly when asked at least six times whether under the law it would be legal for a merchant to refuse to serve gay customers. "This is not about discrimination, this is about empowering people to confront government overreach," he said. Asked again, he said, "Look, the issue here is still is tolerance a two-way street or not."
I suspect that's because the lawyers who were advising the sponsors of that bill told them that if it if did not make those exceptions it might not pass constitutional muster.US Civil Rights law (Title IX) specifically exempts fraternities and sororities (and boy scouts, girl scouts, YMCA, and others). Were this not the case, I have no doubt that the boy scouts would now simply be "scouts" - maybe fraternities and sororities not far behind?
