Hahaha! They are babies. I bet if the roles were reversed the gay baker wouldn't back a Jesus cake

As a gay, I am offended that this Jesus has a shirt on. It's either hot Jesus or nothing!

A)
If a gay couple entered the bakery in order to purchase any other product (something that isn't to do with celebrating a gay wedding), would the baker decline to serve them?

B)
If a heterosexual Christian personal friend of the baker's (who attended the same church) came in and asked for a gay wedding cake, would the baker make an exception and serve that friend? Would the baker say, "I normally have a principle against making cakes for gay weddings, but for you, I'll do it"?

What am I trying to illustrate? That it's not about the person(s) being served, but it's about the service that the baker is being asked for.

That's not a thought experiment. That's just two questions that you assume you know the answer to.

Come to think of it, this got downvoted into submission. Mind supporting for a bit?

If a baker denied a wedding cake for a couple because they're Christian, would you call that discrimination?
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
No, because the government can't force them to do anything if they don't want to. I would find a different bakery and they would get my money instead.

But it would still be discrimination. If a business owner refuses to serve someone just because they're gay, that's discrimination. And if a business owner refuses to serve someone just because they're Christian, that's also discrimination.

That doesn't change the fact that the government is forcing someone to do something in this scenario. If somebody doesn't want my money, I'll take it somewhere else and they won't get my money, somebody else will. The business loses out on a profit in this scenario, and if they want to put their beleifs before their profits, they can do that. The free market will better solve this problem than forcing somebody to do something they don't want to do.

I'm not saying that businesses should be forced to do business with people. I don't believe they should. But when people say that gay people don't face discrimination, that is false.

... And you propose to fix it by forcing businesses to do things.

Did you seriously not read my previous comment? I clearly said that I don't believe businesses should be forced to serve people if they don't want to.

Say one way we can fix this problem that doesn't involve forcing people to do things.

The only real way to fix this problem is to change people's hearts

Ok. An impossible feat nonetheless, but ok. Really, I feel as if the problem will fix itself. The LG part of LGBTXAIJKMNOPQRSUVWXYZ++ has been growing fairly rapidly, so I would expect that by the end of 2020 the homosexual demographic will be important enough that even the most homophobic business owners can't afford to discriminate against them. There's no real way to tell, but the free market will probably solve this problem.

Dear socrates:
How do you account for the countless decades of discrimination that gay people faced and fought through? Why is it that the complaints of a Christian baker are equated to decades of public shaming, persecuting, and of course, murder?

Sincerely, just another Salty American.
