    It is equivalent to the whites only water fountains from 50 years ago.
    During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking.

    i tell you how i would handle this at my bakery.

    if they were pretty lesbians i would sell them a cake. no problem.
    if they were ugly lesbians i would not sell them a cake, i would follow them down the street, pick a fight with them and shoot them under a stand your ground law. again, no problem.

    i think us ugly people get more discrimination than the rest of the world combined!

    I do believe that a Muslim or Jewish caterer could say that they do not offer pork products. I do believe those same caterers would be in violation of the same law if they said they did not service Christians, so I do not see a double standard there. These people are not being asked to participate or even endorse these religious ceremonies, but to simply provide the services they do to anyone else without discrimination.
    But being gay is not a "religion", is it?

    A gay person might be Christian, Jewish or whatever. Gay people might be of any race as well. The baker may be very willing to serve people of varying religions and races. We have added "gay" as a distinction equal to those human rights, one which, in these cases, supercedes the religious beliefs of the baker by compelling the baker to participate in a religious ritual of the customer.

    The baker might have been very willing to provide a birthday cake for these same people, but objected to participating in the ritual for a practice that conflicted with his own religious beliefs.

    I think it is more complex than it appears on the surface.

    They were not being denied a public service. They were trying to buy a cake. A luxury item. From a private business with a certian opinion. What if they just didn't like the way the couple looked or they didn't want their name associated with the type of cake they requested? Would they have the right to refuse that business?
