Within twenty seconds I backed the hell off, because I've got mouths to feed and it just wasn't worth alienating a paying customer over.

    I don't know if the baker you're referring to actually went out of business over that incident, but if he did he made his choice by going political. Good for him for taking a stand if that's how he felt, but the world isn't consequence free. If you voice your disapproval of an entire bloc of people, you're going to offend them, and there's no law that says they have to keep buying your products.
    SSM was against his Biblical beliefs, that should have been reason enough to say no. The homosexual couple(s) should have respected that and gone elsewhere but, they refused and made a fuss.

    Yup, that sort of thing can happen if you own your own business and publicly voice your disapproval of an entire group of people. The customers were no more obliged to stay quiet about it any more than the baker was obliged to open his mouth.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a law against adultery.

    I am a denier of what? Are seriously going to quote a right wing whack job site like American Stinker? Hilarious.

    You quote American Stinker as a credible source? Seriously?

    Let's try something unbiased instead.

    Perhaps a scarlet letter? Shall we burn adulterers at the stake? You do realize 1/2 of your fellow Christians would immediately be criminals?

    Doesn't seem right that they couldn't respect his beliefs. That's the problem with the Homosexual lobby and the Left in general...they don't respect anyone's beliefs but their own.

    FWIW I don't think being a homosexual or SSM is a belief. More like a condition.

    So be it. From what I hear monogamy it's that popular in SSM either.

    We took our vows before God and breaking those is one of the more hurtful things in one's life.

    Doesn't seem right he couldn't respect their beliefs. And it cost him his bakery. Smart move on his part.
