    No, I think that anti-discrimination laws should be enforced, period.

It is the event that they refuse to take part in, not the serving of gay people.

    Of course you know this, just like everyone knows this, whether they admit it or not.

    The reality is, this is an assault against people of faith by the anti-religious bigots on the political left. They want to force them to either renounce their faith, violate their faith, or be financially destroyed if they refuse to comply. They are demonstrating exactly what hate, bigotry and intolerance looks like.
    They do not need to participate in a ceremony, that's ridiculous. They need to bake pizzas and then set them out on tables for the guests. What are you talking about?

    If their is discrimination then of course the laws should be enforced, but that wasn't the question. Do you really believe the Gay activists and their followers would complain about mistreatment from Muslims??? They can hang them by the truckload in Muslim countries and the Gay lobby and their sycophants here won't make a murmur.

    If a gay atheist has a problem with catering a religious ceremony (providing the same service he provides to anyone else) then he can cater to the event or he can risk a lawsuit by turning it down on the basis of the customer's religion. His choice.

    Anyway, you've made your feelings clear and there's really nothing left for you to add, I suspect. You believe that discrimination is acceptable if it's supported by religious belief, but realistically speaking that's not the direction the country is heading in. Sooner than not, sexual orientation is going to be a protected class on the Federal level. At that point, Christians are going to have to make a choice: risk the government's wrath and discriminate, suck it up and stay in business, or close up shop altogether. Whichever they choose, honestly I couldn't care less. It's their problem, not mine.

    They would rather not and their right to not attend a gay wedding, or any public or private ritual, should be respected..

    It's not your problem until you are forced to participate in something with which you disagree. First they came for the Jews, etc.

    Yes, they will be opposing all discrimination, not just when it's by the Christian community.

    Oh yeah, this is totally the beginning of a Nazi grade holocaust. First Christians will have to sell cakes to gays, then they're going to be killed in gas in chambers. Good one.

    The hypocrisy of the Gay/Leftists lobby was being put on display through that video. I doubt there will be any attempt by the Gay/Leftist community to put them out of business, or even arrive on their doorstep.
