It’s irrelevant to you because you want to demonize the baker for hating gays, when he only has a problem with supporting an institution he doesn't believe in.
It's irrelevant to the case. Some discrimination is still discrimination.

Gays should be allowed to “gay marry” and Americans should be allowed not to have the CHOICE to participate in gay institutions or not. Government shouldn’t punish Americans for the choice you wouldn’t make.

it was just the most vulgar thing I could think of for a Denver cake shop.
O. K., The top quote, Just above
on the page
is illuminated because of the use of the word "vulgar".
Actually, there were some derogatory complements, But NOTHING "vulgar"

The bottom quote is me just being a smart-ass in reference to my comment about a Oakland Raiders wedding cake on my previous post-
Most Interesting.

The first quote is directed at lides and has NOTHING to do with my earlier rude humor about raiders wedding cake
-YET-
There's that same word directed at someone who didn't write a vulgar word about him Or the Denver Broncos Fans who may or may not work in any of the 10 cake shops in Denver Metro area

IF you go back to page 117 posts 2573 and 2574 you can see my use of the word "vulgar" in it's natural timing, sequence, and context.

It's the one where "Respect71" (response) says "lides" uses a "vulgar" word. This is ABSOLUTELY false! I went back and re-read what "lides had written,...NO vulgar words or expressions whatsoever!
FOR all : The way this forum is designed allows it the used as an observatory, just like any real observatory we have on earth or in space. By using the page # and Posting # you can really get a better view of some not so easily observed BEHAVIORs and secretive
intentions which are best brought to light as quickly as possible.
I am observing and referencing the exchanges between Myself, Respect71 and others NOT to pick on JUST him, but to shed light on some things that need to be dealt with for ALLof US!!!
AN OBSERVATORY is a REALLY good way to SHOW people
THINGS they would NEVER SEE otherwise.

You are consistent in your inconsistency. You regularly advocate for equal protection of the law, then turn on heel and advocate exemption for religious discrimination.

Here's a clue kiddo, what individuals choose to do is no one else's business.

Would you think it was reasonable to say that interracial couples should be able to "interracial marry" and Americans should be allowed not to have the CHOICE to participate in interracial institutions or not.

Your argument negates itself. At the same time, you argue for legal equality and the right to discriminate.

So whats all the fuss did you find a pubic hair in your cake? Keep it as evidence and sue the s.o.b. baker for everything ruin his lively hood 10 years in prison doing hard time should be sufficient.

Times and posting number wil ALWAYS work better than nuts and froots
BTW the lemon means OFF Topic -
There's NOTHING OFF Topic
about a Raiders wedding cake IT is a GOOD legal analogy: IF I go into a Denver Cake shop and ask for a Oakland Raiders' wedding cake
I really COULD piss someone OFFF who's already having a BAD day,
thinks I'm really intending to be rude and disruptive and asks me to just leave. OF COURSE I can sue him for denying me service because he
refuses make the cake or even continue with the situation.
Under Colorado law could complain he discriminated against me because i'm a Raider's fan.
Colorado Law protects
me - Raiders fan with a
DELIBERATELY OFFENSIVE cake to Denver Broncos Fans
AND
Charli n Dave with their "Morally" offensive to the Christian baker.

6. If Phillips loses the case and refuses to comply with the order, he would face fines of $500 per case and up to a year in jail, his attorney said"

RE# 7
Colorado Law prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation based on certain protected classes (characteristics). Examples of prohibited discriminatory practices include: terms of service; denial of full and equal service; intimidation; failure to accommodate; access; conditions; privileges; advertising; and retaliation. A place of public accommodation can be a: bar; restaurant; financial institution; school or educational institution; health club; theater; hospital; museum or zoo; hotel or motel; public club; retail store; medical clinic; public transportation; nursing home; recreational facility or park; and library.
Colorado law prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation based on actual or perceived sexual orientation. By legal definition, sexual orientation means heterosexuality, homosexuality (lesbian or gay), bisexuality, and transgender status. Transgender status means a gender indentity or gender expression that differs from societal expectations based on gender assigned at birth.

Guess "Respect" has 'no respect' for the law. Just like the baker."
