      Kennedy warned them not to push this again that they might not like the result.

        It's not like this bakery or the baker's opinions are unknown: his religious beliefs and how he runs his business in accordance with them are a matter of public record.

        The only reason a person would go in there requesting a cake for something related to gay rights is to harass or to troll.

        I hope this time the Supreme Court recognizes this for what it is and hammers home that religous rights are still respected in this country.

                Exactly. Except for basic public accommodation things a business should never be forced to have to serve you and that would include someone making a specialty cake for you.

                I am waiting for these idiots to start trying to sue bars, that are clearly allowed to discriminate if they aren't a restaurant, for refusing service to people that don't fit the crowd because they are acting like flamers in the bar that caters to people that don't care to see that.

                You also have these same clowns bragging about barring cops from coffee shops etc. because they don't fall under the rules - but that is fine according to them.

                      This came up back in August and I posted this in response to a post by Windy:



                      I thought you were a supporter of the First Amendment?

                      Freedom of Speech means the government can’t stop you from saying what you want to say but it also means that it can’t compel you say what you don’t want to say.

                      Compelled speech is as bad as suppressed speech.

                      The baker isn’t refusing to sell her a cake. The baker will happily create a custom birthday cake if she asks. The baker will sell her any cake in the case.

                      So what’s the problem???

                      He won’t create a custom cake that celebrates her transition from male to female.

                      He also won’t create a Halloween cake with devils on it. He won’t create a cake with a stripper twirling around a pole on it. He won’t create a cake that disparages the US or veterans. HE ALSO REFUSES TO CREATE A CAKE THAT DISPARAGES BLACKS, HISPANICS, HOMOSEXUALS, OR THAT GLORIFIES NAZIS OR THE KLAN, OR THAT PRESENTS ANY OTHER MESSAGE THE BAKER IS MORALLY OPPOSED TO.

                      But of course you knew all that because the media can be counted on to give you the full story, amirite?

                      Soooooo.

                      Is it your position that the Government should be able to force the baker to create art celebrating a message he is fundamentally and morally opposed to?

                      If so, please stop claiming you’re a champion of free speech because you aren’t.

                      By the way, this whole case is a set-up. The attorney set it up to go to court. She didn’t casually stroll into this cute little bakery and get thrown out on her ear. This was after the gay wedding cake incident. The attorney called and specifically said the cake was to celebrate her transition knowing she would be declined just to file a complaint against the baker. She was trying to set up a stronger case against the baker than the wedding cake case.

                      Be honest Windy. This isn’t a religious fundamentalist trying to shove his religious beliefs down her throat. This isn’t a religious fundamentalist intruding into the privacy of what this this person chooses to do in her own bedroom. To the contrary, it is the transsexual attorney using the power of government to force her beliefs and her morality down the baker’s throat. BAKE THE CAKE CITIZEN! BAKE IT OR ELSE!

                      I believe in freedom and liberty. I don’t want government shoving anybody’s morality down my throat.

                      Liberals often label conservatives as autocratic, dictatorial. However, it is conservatives (and especially libertarians) who want government to have LESS power over our lives.




                      Alex.

                                This is the kind of BS they do that hurts their cause and makes people less inclined to support their positions.
