Yes, this is in the bullying thread

Remember that slippery slope I was talking about with all the gay crap?
Suddenly, they're more important, and you must bow down to them and do all they want.

Was it tristian that said they gay community would never 'force' a church to have a wedding that they were totally against?
Well, it looks like they want to start with small business owners that have the right to refuse people.

Judge Orders Colorado Bakery to Cater for Same-Sex Weddings - ABC News

Quote:
A Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a gay couple has been given an ultimatum by a judge; serve gay weddings or face fines.
Administrative law judge Robert N. Spence found Friday that Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver, Colo. violated the law when he turned away David Mullins, 29, and Charlie Craig, 33, from his shop last year.

In his written decision, Spence ordered that Phillips "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples, or face financial penalties, and cited Colorado state law that prohibits businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.

"At first blush, it may seem reasonable that a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it chooses," Spence wrote. "This view, however, fails to take into account the cost to society and the hurt caused to persons who are denied service simply because of who they are."

Mullins and Craig married in Massachussets and had originally gone to Masterpiece in July 2012 because they wanted to a cake for their wedding reception in Colorado. When Phillips refused, the pair went to the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission (CCRC) on their behalf.

According to the complaint, Phillips told the couple that the store policy was to deny service to customers who wished to order baked goods for a same-sex wedding, based on his religious beliefs.

Phillips told the men, "I'll make you birthday cakes, shower cakes, sell you cookies and brownies, I just don't make cakes for same-sex weddings."
I'm sorry, but I pointed this out a while ago... It won't be long until the entire united states is forced to comply to something that many of us feel is unethical and wrong. This is just bullying the majority now.
Whatever happened to majority rule?

No one should be forced to provide their service to anyone else. That said. I do know I wouldn't eat the cake.

The slippery slope the SCOTUS gave us in the 1960's. You will obey, or else! We're from the government, and we're here to help you.

Why would someone want to support a business that wouldn't support them?
With that being said should that catering company be able to refuse service to a neo-nazi rally, a KKK convention, a MABLA dinner, or a NAACP fund raiser?

They can already tell private businesses that they cannot allow smoking, what hours that they can serve booze, when they can sell cars. It's all really the same.

Churches are not businesses according to the law and the government can never force them to marry anyone. Get over yourselves.

A baker is not comparable to a church. Not the same thing, which was my point.

Well, if they are talking about churches then this thred is moot. The government should not be involved in church business. Well I think they should pay taxes.

The government isn't involved and could never force a church to marry anyone that it didn't want to marry.
