    Generic, nondescript cakes, I'm not seeing a problem. I've already stated it shouldn't matter who's buying the cake, as their money spends the same, and the same ingredients and labor are involved.
    The cake in the case you keep referring to, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, was a generic nondescript cake. It did not have any figures on it nor any writing.

    2.) false since there is no force. I mean we know you keep claiming this lie but theres never any proof lol
    So can a business be sued if they fail to provide service to someone for a reason that is banned? Yes or no?

    I assumed you knew what I said. I wanted to just restate it. That's what my problem is with the entire issue. It's okay to refuse service to anyone you want, as long as it isn't someone of the protected class and you aren't specifically saying the reason is because of the protected class. Technically any business can decline service to any gay person today. You just can't say it's because of that. That's what also makes this law BS. I get that it had to be done in the 1960s because of the treatment of blacks, but we've overcompensated to the point that it's just ridiculous. That's why these threads always end up as they do, with both sides lobbing insults at each other, making rude blanket statements about political parties, screaming about "the LAW!", and the constant barrage of over the top dramatic hyperbole.

    Go Rangers.
    I can agree with all that. It just makes me wonder sometimes why people would choose to go into a business where they set themselves up to be offended or needing to exercise "rights" in their day to day business lives. And I don't understand how some people can be so fragile in their faith, as an example, that selling a gay person a cake will doom them to the fires of hell and eternal damnation.

    And on the aside, I predicted a few weeks back that the Rangers and Kings are going to meet in the final again this year - I didn't predict a winner, but it's hard to win two in a row, so you might be in for a happy June.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    if its a genreal public access business they sell wedding cakes or they dont
    'We don't offer figurines on cakes'
    'We only offer matched set figures, and can't break them up'
    'It's not a product configuration we offer'

    Cause she's a woman. I wouldn't even allow her in the store.

    The store only serves white heterosexual males, so a white heterosexual female would be obviously outside of that group. Duh??

    1.) take your pick, any of the rights that are infringed on or laws broken in the many court cases that deal with this. Civil rights, equal rights etc.
    2.) i cant answer until you give me more info, what buisness, what someone and what "banned reasons" do you speak off
