    Because of the cake he wanted from them, not because he was gay.



    I saw it, and saw that a troll video doesn't support your position.
    So what other reason would a bakery not want to sell their product to this customer?

    Verily, Christians in the 21st century are the first human beings to experience such inconveniences.

    I find your tactic of acting deliberately obtuse boring. Go troll someone else if that's how you want to play it.

    Crazy isn't it? That you have to take someone to court in order to prove you were discriminated against? It should just be a matter of yelling it out loud and people forking over money.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    That's how it worked out for black people in the sixties, right?

    Obviously, going to court and getting laws passed was too inconvenient.

    See, that's what I always thought every time I read about that thing with Rosa Parks or watched the crowds of protesters get blasted by fire hoses and have dogs set on them: why didn't the rest of the black community just send them millions of dollars?

    I appreciate the irony of it all. Christianity is all about martyrdom, but the extremists always complain about being made martyrs themselves through their own doing.

    I don't know where you got that idea but many people have had to go to court to protect their right to free speech, for example, or right to protest, or right of assembly. Religion mattered in the cases you cited but rights have always involved more than just Christians.

    Your focus on Christians rather misses the point.

    They were too busy letting the market work it all out.
