Today’s the day #MasterpieceCakeshop learns its fate

  • Forcing bakers to bake cakes sounds like the “progressive thing to do”.

    • Yes it is.

      Big Brother asks nicely for you to do that. Or else. Room 101.

    It’s about many things. It’s about freedom of religion, compelled speech and freedom of association. If we have freedom of association rights, like we theoretically do, no one can be compelled to enter into a contract with someone else against their will.

    • I hope the SC sees it that way.

      • canminuteman

        I doubt they will. we lost our freedom of association rights a generation ago and nobody bothered to fight about it.

    Bake it with poison

      Or do such a horrible job, the requester voids the contract.

        I can imagine the gays then suing for ‘quality standards’.

    There is reason why most prisons don’t let the inmates prepare food.

    I simply could not get a single left leaning friend to grasp the difference that he ointed out towards the end, namely that there is a difference between compelling someone to provide specialty services for a gay wedding vs not serving a gay person who came into a store. The “place of public accomodation” is a better way to put it, though I doubt they’ll be willing to acknowledge the difference.
    Even though I disagree with it, the argument they will use against the Jew/Nazi or Muslim examples given here is that the people requesting the services here are not part of a protected minority. There needs to be an example where the person making the request is part of a “protected” group, such as a Muslim baker asked to make a gay wedding cake, to make these people not give a knee-jerk reaction and actually think for a second about it.

  • This is using the power of the State to force others into doing what they want. This is an obscenity.
