Since the owners of the bakery are citing their "Christian faith" as justification for refusing to bake a cake for this couple, let me remind them that Jesus of Nazareth was a Jew, and according to their faith at that place and time, they could not enter the home of a pagan because it made the Jewish person who did so, ritually unclean.

Yet, when a Roman centurion came to Jesus seeking help for his servant, Jesus said to him: "Take me t your house !" Jesus did not care whether the man was a pagan or a Jew or whatever. And he cured the centurion's servant.

Also, since the owners of the bakery are citing their "Christian faith" as justification for refusing to bake a cake for this couple, would they also not bake a cake for ANY non-Christian couple, such as a Muslim couple, or a Hindu couple or a Buddhist couple or a Jewish couple, and cite their "Christian faith" as justification for refusing to do so ???

Well, once this type of thing is settled, and they have to sell us the product, they will probably then start focusing more attention on Muslims. Buddhists I'm not so sure of, but if more of them make themselves visible, I'm sure they will be included in the discrimination. "christians" can be depended upon to always find someone to look down on and discriminate against.
