    So the majority ruled that people can be discriminated against.

    They voted for legislators opposed to protections, for better or worse.

Well guess what, that would defeat the whole purpose.

    Some of these conflicts are unavoidable. You just gotta decide, should someone lose their job cause their boss has a religious objection to their sexuality? This fear led my gay uncle to marry and live a lie for sake of his boss' prejudice, then divorce and take another job across the country once he was able. Who the hell wins in that scenario?

    Ultimately what i harken back to when i hear "nobody has a right to dictate another's actions" is jim crow south. You know, desegregation meant forcing colleges, restaurants, bus drivers to do things against their will. Now you might say race, well, that's an identity not a behavior. This "rfra" makes no distinction between gay couples getting married and the teenager who is gay, never been in a relationship, and already has it bad enough cause he lives in ****ty indiana. All are targets

    Personally though, i would not want to do business for something like a wedding cake with someone like that, nor would i trust them to do it right. Strategically, the fallout has been more trouble than it's worth.

    I wish it never happened, so people stop using the bakery as a strawman and focus on the real problems like the hateful intent behind this indiana "rfra", the doctor who wouldn't treat the infant of the gay couple (depriving necessities), employment and housing discrimination. None of that is in the bible to my knowledge, so i see it as they're lying when they hide their bigotry behind their 'faith,' and i would think that would upset a lot of Christians like yourself who are gay friendly

    How am i asking someone to 'endorse'/'enable'/participate in my sexuality or my sex life when i go to buy milk? Or as the poster above said, i got in a car crash and the hospital won't treat me cause i'm gay? What does one have to do with the other?
    Tell me that didn't really happen. I can think of no way that could even be justified in someone's own conscience.

    Yes it happened in Roseville MI, a town with no anti discrimination law and a state that still may pass its own "RFRA" (eliminating anti discrimination laws in other cities, including my own)

    The 'doctor' had someone else at the office break the news and on the day of the appointment, in public
