It certainly took the fundies a while to get around to this Feb 7 news story
.
We're reading this week old news story a week later on Feb 14
.
Here's the gist of the story:
**********
She is still required by law to sell cakes displayed for sale in the bakery's showroom to all customers including gay customers without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.
.
Judge Lampe determined she is NOT required to sell a cake that doesn't exist (not baked yet)
**********
Its interesting how the fundies are trying to spin a non-event into some sort of blame game

Using the judge's logic; a gay-owned restaurant can refuse service to fake christians because the food isn't cooked yet
.
Test cases coming; watch for it

This will take a dive on appeal. The legal reasoning is beyond sophomoric.

I see you still lack the mental capacity to address the topic, present an argument, or attempt to support your position with facts.

Tell me, Wondering, do you honestly believe that this case has a snowballs chance in hades of standing upon appeal?

Do you honestly think the Supreme Court will not have rendered the appeal irrelevant before the case can be heard?

It will be decades before you reach sophomoric, if you ever do.

It is not surprising that Judge David Lampe is a member of Trump's "Presidential Prayer Team," and evidently an evangelical Christian and maybe a fundamentalist as well. I wonder if his Christian lifestyle had anything to do with his decision.

Here is a link for the Presidential Prayer Team:

Take a look at the WHO WE ARE section. Scary.

This is great news. On the basis of the owners' religious beliefs businesses may now choose not to serve patriarchally inclined customers, or female customers who don't wear a headcovering, or non vegetarians, or those who don't wear magic underwear (inspections needed,) or even those customers who have zippers or fancy buttons on their clothing. The sky is the limit here...as long as it stems from a "religious" belief on the part of the business owner...of which there's no shortage of crazy ones.

The case was childishly reasoned and has no chance of withstanding appeal in California. Only a fool would claim to the contrary.

Feel free to keep defending it, though. You have a most impressive losing streak when it comes to predicting court outcomes.

Forget about California. You may not know this but the SCOTUS is looking at it.

There's a neat thing about the US Supreme Court, Wondering. You see, they are smart people, unlike you, who can tell the difference between speech and dessert.

It is hardly my fault that you will grasp on to even the most absurd of arguments to advance your bigoted anti-gay zealotry. Personally, I think your zeal indicates self-loathing latency.

A wedding cake is far more than dessert, it's a symbol. It's also a custom creation. Symbols are a form of speech. You don't have to have the same religious views as these Christian bakers but you need to show respect for other people, something you've never learned. I favor freedom of choice and religion, you don't.

No, Wondering, it is a confection. These bakers keep trying to turn it into a symbol, or an expression, or an endorsement, but at the end of the day, it is just dessert.

You can believe whatever you want to. Christian bakers can believe whatever they want to. See, I'm for personal freedom and your not.

No, Wondering, you are for Christian bakers being allowed to project their beliefs onto others by denying them services, which is an act of religious persecution.

Were you not intensely unintelligent, you would see that.

No, puppy, I am for allowing people the right to free exercise in all aspects of their lives. For these bakers it isn't something that you can just turn off or on. You are free to disagree, again, no one cares what you think, it's irrelevant.

What an amazingly naive question. Of course that closet case troll has nothing relevant to say; you reply to posters like him for reasons other than any sincerity on his part.

He swore never to reply to me again at least 6 times, he can't help it. Did I mention that he's a liar.
