Why doesn't this cake artist and good xstain speak out about his refusal to design cakes for other sorts of unrepentant "sinners," such as couple who live together and have sex before they come to him as part of their marriage preparations?

Because none of it is about religious belief in any consistent, honest way. It's about hating equal rights for lgbt people, if not hating lgbt people directly.

Heterosexual sinners have their Heterosexual Privilege Card....that gives them a free pass from self righteous hypocrite business owners who call themselves "Christian."

What's the difference between a gay sinner and a straight sinner? The sex of his partner?

The difference is that these business owners are not refusing service to straight sinners based on their sexual orientation.

They know they would not be making money if they refused to bake cakes for everybody, and everybody sins. The bottom line is that everybody knows their refusal to make cakes for gay couple is based on homophobia.

Why would you be happier if the baker did turn down other sorts of unrepentant sinners? You'd be OK with him then?
Great point! Also, whenever there is an article or posts about gay men molesting boys or gay men with HIV, immediate Philly troll and his ilk jump right into "what about heteros who molest girls?" or "more heteros have HIV in Africa" as if somehow two wrongs make a right or because heteros do it too somehow it's not as bad or doesn't count for homosexuals.

What about the gay coffee shop owner throwing fundies out? He has no "heterosexual privilege card" and neither do the fundies he throws out.
Maybe because of the way gay people have been treated by fundies for ages, who call their hatred of gays "Christianity."

Newsflash! This just in! He did refuse to make wedding cakes for everyone. You say homophobia, Jack says religion. I don't think there is such a thing as 'homophobia.' I believe Jack. You won't believe Jack because you have no respect for him. It's okay to not have respect for him, just get your reasons right.

Fundies are often sanctimonious hypocrites.

Personally, if I were gay, I would want to do

business with anybody but this Fundie boy.

You have zero respect for gays, so isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?

You say there is no such thing as homophobia? The parents of Matthew Shepard would not agree with you. They will suffer emotionally for the rest of their lives because their son was murdered by two homophobic idiots.

I'd give BuyBull Baker Boy 6 months,

maybe a year before he "comes out."

The denial is very strong in this one.

<quoted text> I think most sane people agree with what you said. I certainly would not help keep someone in business who insulted my gay friends instead of helping them have a beautiful celebration. I actually seek out gay businesses to do business with.
I'd make it known in the area gay community that

the baker's a hater and others would avoid him too.

It's just bad business to "redline" groups of folks

and this guy has done so. He'll be very lucky if his

business doesn't fail. Principles or not, why would

he antagonize a significant part of his community?

He must think he needs no more possible clientele?

Matthew Shepard is probably one of the worst cases you could have brought up. Way too much controversy there. Respect is multi faceted. I have no respect for gay sex or for those that call public restrooms their hangout.
A whole lot of stereotyping there. I've never had any

trouble with unwanted gay advances. But you have?

Oh please. That is not the Matthew Shepard story at all. Two lowlife idiots robbed him and murdered him not because he was gay
Yep....homophobic bigotry and hate does not exist......all of you heterosexuals are angels who love and accept gays unconditionally. That's how your delusional minds work.

Why don't you google the" Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act," which has been the law since 2009. Then try to say that Matthew Sheppard wasn't murdered because he was gay. You're a complete idiot who doesn't have the slightest clue what you're talking about.

Evangelicals are very particular about the sins that they wish to obsess over.

Basically they go by the mantra,ďa sin is something you do that they donít likeĒ!

I realize that accepting the aggression of sick gay men as normal behavior would have you thinking I didn't need help from a health care professional. So sorry for you.
