"How do you blame the judge for deciding a case in accordance with what the Supreme Court has already articulated?"<quoted text>
“No, the issue is exemption from laws in general based on asserted conflicts with religious beliefs. You can't just arbitrarily draw the line where you find it convenient as the constitutional principle of equal protection doesn't allow that. Similarly situated people must be treated the same.” Does “gay marriage” mean something to you? If so then how is drawing a line in regards to that institution arbitrary?
“Why should gays be exempted from this general principle?” Gays aren’t exempt from the “general principle” which has been show the baker GENERALLY served gays.
“If people are unable to comply with the laws that govern and regulate the business or industry in which they wish to work, they should find a different occupation.” Because we have the First Amendment o the Constitution. The government is going to respect “gay marriage” in regards to wedding services above other religions? Marriage means something to everyone and it’s not the government’s place to force Americans to provide a service within the wedding industry based on these beliefs. Churches can discriminate because of the institution and so should anyone in the wedding industry BECAUSE of the instution.
“The government doesn't compel businesses to engage in speech with which they disagree. I already told you what the current constitutional law is on this topic. The problem is you erroneously consider baking a cake or catering a meal or taking a picture as "speech" when the law doesn't. You also erroneously consider running a business an act of worship when the law doesn't.” Because the First Amendment protects worship and speech… However, it’s sad that you would support punishing the gay caterer that would deny service to the Westboro Baptist Church anti-gay event.
“How some Americans use God as an excuse to discriminate against others is way beyond me.” Again, it’s not discrimination the individual, it’s the institution, and it’s sad you support government forcing those who don’t believe the same as you.
