    Why would a gay couple want someone opposed to their lifestyle to participate in their day anyway?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    As a business they are well within their rights to choose not to provide cakes with hateful or racist language on them. The closest comparison isn't a wedding cake for a gay wedding, its a cake with hateful language about straight people or some ethnic group. That's not the same as a wedding cake.
    whats hateful language?. do we have to have Pelosi endorse the words?
    what if I want " I like to beat my meat" on a cake?... or "Id rather be hunting taliban"..

    do I not have the right to have that?..but they MUST make a cake with two men kissing against my religious beliefs that one may hold sacred? that they must be FORCED TO MAKE

    Yes, they should have to cater a wedding for people who belong to the KKK. However, they do not have to cater a wedding full of racist propaganda.

    The easiest way to think about this is to replace gay with old, fat, or ugly. Could a bakery refuse to make a cake for someone because they were "too fat"? Could a photographer refuse to photograph a wedding because the bride was "too ugly"? Could a hip coffee shop refuse to serve coffee to someone because they were "too old"?

    This kind of question is a luxury the majority is allowed to indulge itself in.

    its not wrong.. you are right.. much like doing work for people with poor credit, thats a risk I choose often to not take and say no to taking an order... should I be forced to have to take that risk?... no

    As long as you're fine with segregation, that's at least a fully coherent intellectually honest position. I may not agree with that kind of libertarianism, but I can at least respect the idealism.

    No to the last one, because you can't refuse to serve someone based on age.
