    Well since they were factually not forced to bake a cake no worries then

    I agree, the power of bigotry some have is both amazing and sad at the same time. Just obey the law and make the cake but no they chose to break the law and treat people as lessers. Dummies

    That person getting thier feelings so hurt over facts and accurate statements and advice is very childish and silly. Again that would be that persons problem and id laugh at them.
    You talkin' to me? You injected yourself into a reply to Mateo, and he knows what I was saying. So, I really have no use, nor care about your opinions.

    You have right to your own property and to dispense with your property. The reason you can't understand is because you only want to see the good intentioned side of it and refuse to see any of the negative. Do you also favor removing free speech?

    That's right, so you don't have to sell your blender to any random homosexual off the street who makes an offer.

    But if you're offering to sell blenders to turn a profit by selling to our citizens on our soil, you can't dehumanize our citizens by making access exclusive along specific lines that society has outlawed.

    Property rights dont allow you to break the law. This is why your claim fails

    Where else are you claiming property rights allow us to break the law? theft? robbery? assault? rape? nuclear weapons? toxic dumping? toxic waste? or is it just against the gays
    If the bigot bakers were bothered by those laws all they had to do is not AGREE to them the dummies LMAO

    The negative is hurt feelings. The bigot/racist offers a good or service to the public, and sells that good or service at an agreed upon price. He gets paid on the same basis as he or she would selling to acceptable customers, he doesn't have to provide unique products, or do anything except just NOT be an asshole and discriminate based on arbitrary criteria such as race, religion or sexual orientation. Where's the significant negative?

    And your property rights are infringed on in any number of ways. I can't raise pigs in my back yard, or use it for a shooting range, or run a whore house out of my residence or sell crack cocaine from it. I used to make beer and the law prohibited me from selling it to kids in the neighborhood after grade school let out. If I have a business, I have to have a license. If a kitchen, there's a long list of health codes I have to comply with before I can sell food to the public, and if I sell cakes to white people I have to offer the same cakes for sale to blacks or gays. It's "fascism" I tell you!!
