This is the only bakery in Denver?

Go to another one, buy the cake and enjoy it.

I would close the shop, temporary go out of business, and tell all my customers waiting for their product why.

Nope, queers would rather go to a place they know doesn't cater to them just so they can scream discrimination and sue. F*cking queers are the scum of the earth.

I agree! They just wanted media attention and money! Also, let's not forget how they want to express their rights while suppressing others rights!
Double standards is their way of life!

Why should American society bow to the pressure of the 3% of the population that is homosexual? Homosexuality might be a lifestyle chosen by a few, but it is still morally wrong and disgusting.
Your opinion! Religion is a chosen lifestyle which the beliefs cannot be proven as fact.

And prove what a bigot they are. Let them go ahead! I don't see how it would be any different than them doing that if they refused black customers, they'd just be proving they were racists.

You don't see it because you're ignorant. Their religion is against homosexuality. Their religion isn't against black people. See how ignorant you are? Try to be less ignorant on things, you just make yourself found like an educated fool.

The opposite of religion cannot be proven as fact either. Your argument holds validity. You're sounding ignorant again.

I know religion is why people are biased against homosexuality and that is can be used to justify any form of bigotry. I know it was once used to condone slavery, segregation, and bans on interracial marriages, and to oppress blacks and women. I'm not ignorant and you don't know anything about me.

Who are you to talk about ignorant with a screenname like Bubba? But the opposite of religion is real since religion cannot be proven. I can't see the air but I know it is there. Can you see God? I'm not a an atheist but religion is purely based on faith.

Since you are outspoken about how you feel why DO you hate homosexuals? Does it affect your life what consenting adults do?

Yes you are ignorant. Like the other poster said, I'm not religious either but I'm against it. Mainly because of their drama queen ways. Like the couple here being discussed. Why go to a place where you know it's against their religion? Merely for attention and free money! And you're so confused about religion it's ridiculous! This is America man, where does it say in any bible that the White man has dominance over the world? It doesn't. You're wrong!! Accept it and move on. That is what you said! You said against blacks, against gays, against women. But there is nowhere in the any bible that states the White man is dominance! see its not religion, that does all of that, it's the people trying to find a scape goat for their own agenda. Now homosexuality, yes it is, but the homosexuals knew before hand! They just wanted attention and the hopes of free money. No more credible than the welfare bums that can work but don't. This is America and you have a freedom of religion. If you don't like that move to North Korea, they are anti religion. You see how they are, let's see how happy you are there, ignorant fool.

And what if they refused some pervert who came in and wanted a big penis decoration on their cake? I suppose in your opinion, they'd have to accommodate him even though it's offensive and against their values. Or maybe in this case, you think the owner would have the right of refusal because it has nothing to do with advancing your gay agenda.

You people just consider gays to be inferior and you will never change so you aren't worth arguing with.

You're so right! The gays are all about double standards. That's their motto I think.

I don't consider them inferior. That's just your perception I guess. I just just sick of the double standards. Like this scum couple. It's ok for them to exploit gay rights, which as they should. But to go to a bakery you admitted to already having problems with it, that's just for attention and money! Pretty pathetic if you ask me. Such Drama Queens. And that part to me is pathetic.

You're the textbook definition of a "bigot". End your hatred and intolerance. You'll feel better.
