Bakery risks large fine for anti-gay discrimination
I disagree. It's using the force associated with the barrel of the government gun stuck to the head of these christian bakers.
Frankly, it seems, somehow, that this is government overreach and forced social engineering, rather than letting the bigotry of the past just fade away on it's own, of it's own accord.

they forced themselves out of business
Im a christian and i would have to be a complete moron to choose to break the law and infringe on the rights of others and think i get special treatment
simple solution . . dont choose to break the law and become criminals
I mean hey if you want to use some subjective definition of force the same way rape laws are force then fine but there is no force to do business with gays and thank you for posting all those links proving that.
2.) disagree all you want, they forced themselves out, thier choice to be criminals
3.) you can feel that way but its simply a protection of equal rights and its spreading
As an example, I don't buy Levi Jeans because I don't like the company's politics. That is my preference. Since there are other sources for jeans I'm fine. I can exercise my freedom of choice. If a photographer doesn't want to photograph gay people or any other people, he should have the same freedom of choice. The gay people can give their business to a more sensible photographer. They have the same freedom of choice. I can buy jeans from whom I want and lose nothing in the process. The gay people can find another photographer and probably end up with better photographs made by someone who values their business.
I'll give you another example. I was fired as a customer and banned by Paypal because they didn't like some of the products I sell on my web sites. I wasn't willing to drop the products but I did drop Paypal as a payment method at their insistence. That wasn't good enough for them. Apparently they wanted to punish me for refusing to bend to their will. I think it was stupid business to close my account because they couldn't regulate what I sell but I viewed it as their right. I don't have a right to use their service and they have no requirement to do business with me. I didn't complain or sue anybody, I just moved on with my life. The gay people should have moved on and found another photographer.
To me it is beyond the role of government to dictate who businesses or customers people must choose to patronize or accept as a customer. Bringing up nonsense about roads and government services is a pretty empty argument in my view. The photographer pays for these things with taxes just like the gay people.
