Some groups will be more likely forced to abide with these restrictive laws than others, and the law will be more rigorously enforced with some groups, or in some areas, more than others.

    I happen to have a Gay son and, though it doesn't matter in this case, am in favor of Gay marriage. But if there was a wedding and someone felt uncomfortable doing the catering I would find another caterer. I can understand why some people may feel uncomfortable and can respect their feelings while the dogmatic Leftists can't. There will be constant clashes between all these groups and there will never be a winner, or peace, if we remove common sense, discretion, and the rights of others from the equation.

    The Leftists seem to believe that this is a victory for a freer and more open society, as though only laws can ensure that, when in fact society will become more restrictive and the right to 'live and let live' will be less common.
    I don't think people should be compelled to spread the love, and homophobes that feel "uncomfortable" around gays, shouldn't be pushed into their discomfort. I would advocate pulling a business liscense from a company practicing such discrimination, Muslim, Christian or otherwise. If not that, at least signage on your establishment of the things you won't cater your services to. We reserve the right to refuse our catering services to the annual skin heads convention, quarterly meetings of the KKK, same sex weddings, and the monthly anarchist parties. Let the market place decide.

    So how many young people has this "teacher" filled with hate and intolerance before her warped thinking was exposed?

    Where is compassion for others, reverence for the comfort another person gains from their beliefs, humility in knowing there are more truths than your own, and willingness to allow another their convictions, without demanding they only accept your own?

    Or rather than 'pulling licenses' why not just get another caterer?

    Nothing. For someone who wants one, it's still there, just like the penis stromboli at Tony Baloney's (Not Workplace Safe) in Hoboken. So far, I see a few trollish comments but no serious responses that argue why refusing to bake a specific type of cake is discriminatory. I guess the Gay Army would rather just cry in their stromboli about how they're being discriminated against and picked on by bigoted Christians even while they can't articulate a serious argument refuting my point.

    I'm not a liberal progressive, and I'm not sure whether or not any who self identify as such are accepting of Muslim bakery discrimination against LGBT. But, I'm an advocate of LGBT rights, and as such, I'LL CONDEMN Muslim bakeries discriminating the LGBT!!!

    I support the Muslim bakeries to not serve at Gay weddings if it goes against their beliefs. No ones rights are being denied in either of these cases.

    That would seem the sensible thing to do.

    It took a long time for Americans to acknowledge that the rights of women and African Americans were being violated, we overcame that too!!
