[On Christian florists and bakers who refuse to serve a same-sex wedding.]

They didn't turn anyone away because they were homosexual - they were turned away, homosexual or not, for asking the baker / florist to promote anti-Christian ACTS. Huge difference.

Try asking a black baker to bake a cake for a "the beliefs of black people do not matter" gathering, or a muslim to bake a cake for a "draw muhammad" party, then get back to us on "rights" of customers making such requests.

And yet if a Christian is turned away from a florist or bakery refusing to promote Christianity you'd be baying for it to be closed. If place is serving the public it needs to serve everyone. If not then it can discriminate all it wants.

Most sensible florists and bakers would be glad of the income. If the ones on the news chose to be self-righteous fundies, they deserve all that came their way.

"asking a black baker to bake a cake for a "the beliefs of black people do not matter" gathering, or a muslim to bake a cake for a "draw muhammad" party"

How about asking a Nazi baker to bake a cake for a Jewish wedding?

They weren't charged because they refused to serve gays, they were charged because they published the names addresses and phone # of people so terrorists could kill them. YUUUUGE difference.

Lets publish the names addresses and phone numbers of Christian terrorists on gay websites, then you get back to us on this "we didn't do anything wrong" claim.

Kim Il-Davis. Also, the fundie bakers in Northern Ireland who lost their appeal last year.

Legal precedents. Big difference.

Also, Romans 13:1-5.

He's saying that a same-sex wedding is an anti-Christian act. Uh, no, it has nothing to do with Christianity.

As hard as it may be for you to understand, sometimes people do things without thinking about you or your people at all.

You're aware that the bakers doxxed the lesbian couple and they received death threats right?

If they are aware, they ignore that fact because it doesn't fit their agenda.

If the black and muslim bakers you mention were sensible business owners, they'd be delighted to charge for the cakes, since the money is the same. The bigger question is: would the people ordering those cakes dare to eat them?

Okay then, then you surely won't be bothered if an atheist baker refuses to serve any christians and, apparently, post those christians' personal information online so they can be harassed? Because after all, merely being religious is obviously promoting anti-atheist acts and therefore infringes upon the rights of atheists!

Seriously, what are all those fundie bakers even trying to accomplish here? Turning away perfectly paying customers is suuuuuure to be good for business... /s And shouting across the world how you discriminate surely can't hurt either...

Point taken Churchy. They usually gloss over or leave out the things that would be used against their persecution complex

Thinking Allowed

First off, the baker and florist violated anti-disccrimination laws. The bakers even went one step further and doc-dropped the couple (which is also against the law). They were asked to provide a service, not to get married to them.

Also the examples that unReasonable is giving are construed as hate speech, not a birthday cake if done at the shop regardless of religion or race. If the customer buys a plain cake and then takes it home to add whatever they want at home, that is another situation altogether. It's their property.

It's a cake. They're not sharing a bed with you, and they're not inviting you on the honeymoon. You don't even have to dance at their wedding.

It's a cake. How many cakes have you baked for blasphemers, or thieves, or atheists, or adulterers? You don't have any idea, have you? Wow, Christians must be sensitive little flowers with a weak and helpless god, else god would decide if they need to be punished, wouldn't he?

It's just a damn cake.

They are bakers who happen to be Christian. This isn't the same as say a Jewish deli whose job is to serve kosher food. No they are not a "Christian bakery" they are just a bakery.

" No they are not a "Christian bakery" they are just a bakery"

Everything in these moonbats lives is Christian, even the post and pans in the kitchen.
