  • Of course! that is stupid to deny them service

  • Depends, does this baker own the shop? If yes then he can turn away as much business as he wants. No? then he is an employee, he should follow his bosses insr]tructions and bake the cake or be fired, his opinions should not effect anothers business.

  • As much as I support the LGBT community, I have to support business rights on this one. Christian bakers shouldn't be forced into taking part in something they feel is immoral according to their religion. Gays, think about this. Would you force a gay baker to bake an anti gay cake? Besides, there are plenty of bakers who would love to bake a cake for you.

  • As long as we can boycott them

  • Look, it's simple: the same exact capitalist society "have not" people whine about all the time is the same one that empowers them. If a baker refuses to server your wedding then smile, say "Thank you for your time", walk out the front door, go down the block to the next one and order your cake. Once you get home, turn on the inter webs and post your experience for the world to see. That business will lose a TON of business which will bring out new bakers advertising cakes for gay weddings, the influx of these new bakers will force cost down which in turn benefits you WAY more than blasting the bigot baker and forcing him to make one for you. Plus, they are making your food; one thing I always say is "Don't anger the guy making your food." All the videos we see these days of morons spitting in food, peeing in coffee pots, stirring coffee with their...manhood, laying naked on the prep tables, etc. do you really want to force that bigot to make your cake and end up with a quart of saliva in it? I wouldn't. Just move on to someone who DOES want to work with you.

  • They have the right to do what they want. Since when do gay people have the right to forcibly make people violate their consciences. WHAT HAPPENED TO GAY MARRIAGE WON'T AFFECT YOU. LIES!

  • Should a black owned bakery be forced to bake a cake for the KKK> Actually a case like that actually happened.

  • I'm ALL for Marriage Equality, but I don't think it's fair to have to force someone to bake a cake for you & threaten to take them court if they don't. The LGBT community wants to be treated with respect & compassion, but some of them aren't really earning it by attacking other people the way they were attacked. Two wrongs don't make a right. Plus, I'm sure there are plenty of other bakery shops who ARE willing to make your wedding cake. Just leave it alone & go to another one. That's what I would have done.

  • Would you want to be forced to bake a cake saying "Support Traditional Marriage"? If not, don't force Christians to do the same with gay marriage!

@sara_ann_dee There is a difference between denying service and being forced to serve.

I support gay rights but I won't force someone to do something against her religion or morals.

Demanding tolerance then demanding others go against their beliefs and morals....Seems like IN-tolerance to me. It's the new age liberalism at its best...Gimme gimme gimme....NO YOU CAN'T HAVE ANYTHING IN RETURN.

@BennyW My hometown was a HUGE majority black, so the KKK decided to slap them all in the mouths by submitting application to walk in a July 4th parade down the main street of our town. Since their views are protected under Amendment I for freedom of speech, they had to be granted ability to march....Right between the high school band and the high school football team. They thought they were slick and backhanded by marching. What they didn't count on or plan for was the police force being spread thin that day and when the KKK turned off into an alley at the end of the parade which was the official exit for all groups....Well let's just say everyone found out where the cheering crowds that normally jam packed the sidewalks and buildings were hiding out at....They never tried something that stupid again. Rightful societal justice.....Man I love it :)

They should have to sell marriage cakes to gays, but they don't have to make one specifically for gays.
