Since when did others have the right…

to decide what I should do with my business, my choices, and my opinions?

For me this isn’t about gay marriage this is about individual rights and freedoms.

It is wrong to oppress others because they don’t agree with your point of view, It is wrong to force others to unlawfully bend to YOUR will.

It is right to mind your own damn business and realize the freedoms we enjoy today can be lost completely if we all become apathetic to the fact that an individual’s right to choose, is exactly that, THEIR right, not yours, then the tenants of our constitution, and the bill of rights are lost to bullying, reverse discrimination, profiling, prejudice and the single most prevalent across our great United States, IGNORANCE.

My life, my rules ; your life, your rules. The golden rule is the only rule we should be preaching for others, good luck reader, we need it.

    Actually, many states have laws on the books that have expanded the Civil Rights act and it’s many iterations. Mostly, they have expanded them to include discrimination based on sexual preference, unusual dress, social class, political views, etc…. There are several court cases that have set precedence for this kind of thing. The whole “I reserve the right to refuse…” business doesn’t have as much teeth as most people think.

    I personally believe those laws go too far when they don’t allow for people to exercise their own religious beliefs even when they do serve the public. They should be able to serve without having to violate their beliefs. It is my understanding that this couple were long-time customers, but when it came to their wedding cake, the owners drew the line. IMO..that should be allowed as a protection of their religious freedom.

    However, I have ALSO heard that this same bakery has been known to make cakes for Divorce parties, Solstice parties, etc…. If this were really about their faith and not a political statement, they should have also refused those cake requests as well as any cake that celebrated an anniversary for an unwed couple living together, etc…. They don’t get to pick and choose which sins they won’t support….then it really becomes discrimination and bigotry and is also offensive to me as a Christian because it makes us look stupid and hypocritical.

    The law does allow them protections as artists though. For example, while they cannot refuse to make a cake for someone in their state on the grounds of age, gender, race, color, religion, sexual preference…. they could refuse to make any customization that they feel offends their faith. They could make the cake, but not provide the topper with two women or two men, refuse to put wording on a cake that is offensive, etc…. Any customization they did not wish to make would be a discussion between them and the purchasers…who would then have the choice to take their business elsewhere.

    And while we’re talking hypocrisy, we also should point some fingers at the LGBT community who go around preaching tolerance, but then spew hatred and vitriol whenever anyone disagrees with them. Quite frankly, you CAN:T be tolerant of anything if you don’t FIRST disagree!!!

    IMO… all parties involved should have a guilty conscience…but so should most of us. (Something about casting the first stone comes to mind.)

      kind of my point, my business my choice, the point i was making is that because one is a member of the LGBT community, or sleep with sheep i don’t care. Go do what you wish, but you don’t get to be hateful, disrupting, or blame me because i don’t agree with you. the basic freedoms of Life (mine), LIberty(mine),and the pursuit of happiness are all my choice(s), and it is wrong to use a personal or political agenda to infringe on that( and no i don’t care that a liberal agenda has stripped our freedoms and constitutional freedoms, still doesn’t make it right)., i don’t care the reason, i am only required to be tolerant in as much as others actions or behaviors don’t effect me. BUT that said, business is business i would have taken taken taken the money. and cited others for criminal trespass and terroristic threats, but again thats just me.
