    I have to call you out on this one as I hate when people operate off impressions and think they are dealing in facts.

    If you are referring to the Masterpiece Bakery of Lakewood, CO (the bakery that was at the root of this controversy last year)... they are alive and well. The bakery is about 100 yards from my office. I go by it every day. Though I can not attest to their financials, it appears they are doing fine (ok..my impression based on direct observation). My guess is the local publicity has resulted in a loyal following of Christian customers.

    http://masterpiececakes.com/

    Sorry, you can't be footloose and fancy free with the facts....

    BTW... in spite of my "progressive" credentials, I am a strong Christian and believe, given the artistic nature of their business, they should have the right to work for who they want to work and not be forced to apply their labor to something they believe is amoral. Gay marriage is a different thing. It is a "bigotry" that has solid Biblical foundation.

Within the first 5 centuries of 'AD' time, thousands of pagans were murdered, their rituals were deemed illegal and punishable by death. This all came from the heads of the CHURCH.

    Charlemagne had over 4500 saxons beheaded because they would not convert to christianity, which was far from the worst mass murdering in the name of the church, the crusades killed off muslims, jews, natives in the 'new land' (americas), all 'infidels' that would not convert to christianity. All sanctioned by the CHURCH.

    When they were not murdering people because they refused to convert, they were murdering them because they were 'witches' or 'heretics'.
    Hey - there were plenty of churches around during those times and they weren't all Roman Catholic. So if you want to go to war over a particular denomination go for it. But that's hardly an indictment against the teachings of Jesus and Biblical Christianity, though I know you would love it to be.

    There is no liberty in a sinful lifestyle.

    Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence who was also known as the “Father of Public Schools,” once had this to offer: “The only foundation for a republic is…religion. Without it there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty.”

    Don’t miss the significance of that last statement: “..without virtue there can be no liberty….” The principle is clear – a lack of virtue engenders bondage. As one writer noted, “Intemperate men can never be free because their passions give rise to their fetters (bindings).” The more liberties a godless people achieve, the more enslaved they ultimately become in their worldly obsessions.

    Still another founding father, the Reverend John Witherspoon, mirrored Benjamin Rush when he declared, “…Civil liberty cannot long be preserved without virtue….” (righterreport.com)

    Like I said, I'm not big on fables and fairy tales. I can appreciate that you believe what's written, but that does not mean I am obligated to or am I obligated to your sense of morality.

    I dont see that it is rational to believe a govt should be expected to...or free people be subjected to....creating and following laws based on fables, fairy tales, myths, etc.

    Here's a list of the religious affiliations of those who signed the Constitution (scroll down).
    Religion of the Founding Fathers of America

    How is that relevant? I am a practicing Christian yet I support and believe in NOT making other people conform to my religious beliefs. THe framers of our COnstitution knew that our country was founded and settled by MANY looking for *religious freedom.*

    Some people are able to look outside indoctrination, dogma, ideology, and see a bigger picture. Like the Founding Fathers.
