You think the first amendment gives Christian businessmen an excuse to break the law? You're dumber than a box of hammers.
Does being gay an excuse to break decency and disorderly conduct laws at gay pride events? Apparently hamsters know better than you.

You stupid bigot, he spearheaded efforts to stop just what you advocate: Businesses being able to refuse service to a particular group. And "religious" beliefs always played a large part in KKK and other racists' political ideology.

The baker isn't concerned about "sinners" as a category. He has a problem with glbt people.

Fundies would never acquiesce if some muslim business refused to wait on fundies as a matter of "religous" belief.

This is pure, ignorant hypocrisy from the disgusting, anti rational, hypocritical christianist whiner community.

Then start prosecuting different churches that won't marry them because they are gay.
Says the guy claiming religious freedom to disobey laws that ban religious discrimination.

I always knew you had no problem throwing priests and ministers in jail, despite your claims to the contray.

Oh, I missed this stupid new argument of yours.

The baker's entire and only possible case is that he was acting out of "religious" beliefs. Without that (obviously fake) claim there would be no case whatsoever.

You dumb, pos bigot.

You seem to be the only one whining.

Care to explain why gay pride parades and participants break laws at the expense of freedom of expression?

You're making things up.

Private businesses are not free to discriminate against protected groups. And we know your sort of bigot hates the principles of the Civil Rights Act of 64, which established this limitation on private businesses. That's what makes your MLK, Jr., post so damn funny.

And now that you hilariously and stupidly said the CO baker's actions have nothing to do with religion you really have no where to go, you stupid, christianist bigot.

You fundie scum are so stupid and insane.

Hey Jethro, you're not making any sense.

GLBT pride isn't a business that tosses people out based on those customers' membership in some protected group. That would be the bigot baker...who we now hilariously learn from you, contrary to the bigot baker's own claims, was not acting out of "religious" beliefs.

But I'm glad to hear you're so racist that you oppose the Civil Rights Act of 64 and all the succeeding expansions and court cases and laws.

He not discriminating against a group, he’s discriminating the Cake. It’s a wedding cake that he believes if for man-woman couples Dr. King would be appalled at your posts.

So a group can surround businesses can break the law in favor of freedom but a baker can’t break the law if he’s a business owner? If you want freedom then it goes across the board you can’t exclude those you hate.

"He's discriminating the cake."

You're too stupid even to be a genuine, mouthbreather mullah.

No, we know MLK, Jr., would have be for glbt equality, based on is relationship with Rustin, you rube.
