    Our society does not permit discrimination. In Indiana, if one is to believe Gov. Pence, that will include LGBT persons.

    Going in business is a personal choice. No one mandated it did they. It also comes with a host of rules, regulations and laws that you must adhere to.
    You can then seek employment, wherever you wish and adhere to company polices that prevent discrimination in the workplace.
    Take your pick.

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    How about the right to exclusiveness, how about the right to decide who will get your labor, service, property, association, and contract. How about all of those rights I just mentioned.

    Nonsense, of course it does. Our government cannot discriminate, but our society does all day and everyday, and that's a good thing.

    I'm not playing stupid. What part of the first Amendment are you referring to? Free speech?

    If so, how is the government infringing on their free speech rights?

    Freedom of religion? The government is not infringing on their right to practice their religion.

    I see, so the fact that they have a catalog of cakes people can choose from makes no difference at all and yet your side acts like it matters. Figures. What do we call that? Oh right, dishonesty.

    The fact that people buy into the supreme courts argument is hilarious and shows just how badly education fails in the United States.
