    No. I'm not gonna include your snowflake crybaby gay-hating BS. It's not the same. Pretending it's the same is homophobic.

    Discrimination based on protected class is wrong, morally inferior, and exclusively the territory of conservatives. End of story.

    Which is it? Both?
    I do understand that you can support the right of someone to speak but still hate the message. It’s easy to support free speech when everyone likes or agrees with it.

    I don't need your idiotic platitudes.

    Learn what protected class means, why it's important and why one shouldn't play the snowflake card like it's a race card.

    So discrimination against customers isn’t the same thing as discrimination against customers? Why didn’t you just say that rather than phrase it in a way, initially, that suggests you’re even handed about it?

    I bet you idiotically drop context in the middle of a discussion to "make a point" a lot, don't you?

    Full disclosure, that was metaphorical. But I think I'll have a wheat beer.

    The lack of clarity is on your part, not mine.

    Siding with Jack Phillips and religious freedom doesn't make me or anyone else homophobic or anti-transgendered.

    Just as supporting immigation laws and securing our border doesn't makes me an anti-latino bigot.
    Just as opposing affirmative action doesn't make me a racist.
    Just as supporting more thorough screenings of people entering the US from certain Muslim ruled countries doesn't makes me an Islamaphobe.

    Identity politics will destroy this country unless people like yourself put an end to it.

    That baker has to realize that this is 2018 and the United States of America.

    Whether he likes it or not, every business must serve everyone. No exceptions.

    There are probably other people who do not like these public accommodation laws. Tough buns. There is simply no going back to the days before the 1960s.

    If the baker feels so strongly about his religious beliefs, then he has only one remedy: Sell his business and find another occupation.

    (I hear that Airbnb is telling potential hosts the same thing: Either accept our non-discrimination policy or do not ask to be an Airbnb host.)
