Remember ladies: it doesn’t matter how you do on your finals, as long as your future husband is doing well on his.
The order says the cake-maker must “cease and desist from discriminating” against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay couples who want to buy cakes.
A similar is pending in Washington state, where a florist is accused of refusing service for a same-sex wedding. In New Mexico, the state Supreme Court ruled in August that an Albuquerque business was wrong to decline to photograph a same-sex couple’s commitment ceremony.
Colorado has a constitutional ban against gay marriage but allows civil unions. The civil union law, which passed earlier this year, does not provide religious protections for businesses.
Unpopular opinion: you should not be forced to do business with anyone you don’t want to.
What good people should do is make a story like this go viral and boycott the bakery until his business suffers to the point that he has to apologize and offer service without discrimination, or find a new customer base entirely, or go out of business.
It disappoints me to see people turn to the use of the threat of violence and theft of money to create what they perceive as positive change.
Plus, how smart is it to mess with people who prepare your food?
For thirteen years, since I was in seventh grade, I have spoken loudly in favor of equality between gays and straights. However, there is no true equality in forced equality.
The laws should respect both gays and straights equally. If marriage is recognized by the government, both gays and straights should have their marriages equally recognized. If a couple can legally adopt children, both straight and gay couples should be able to legally adopt children. However, an individual or business should never be forced to go against their religious and moral values; just because I have no issue with homosexuality does not mean others don’t. The government should not be forcing businesses into equality like this; it merely creates contempt within their hearts of those who were forced. The change should come from society, not force.
Nelson Mandela was a communist terrorist who plead guilty to 156 acts of public violence. He was a part of a group who used bombs to kill innocent people.

What a hero.
