Hey - they are entitled to their beliefs and to their opinion.

I, and other who disagree, are equally entitled to NOT spend our money at their establishment.

Then close your shop Jack Phillips it will be the best thing you could do. Maybe some who understands and cares about liberty and justice for all will open a new bakery that serves all citizens. Oh and Jack Phillips, take some time to learn what it is to be human because you severely lack what it takes to be one.

For you sick trolls on this forum I'm giving you the finger because I already know you will have your little fits and make an attempt to do your gay bashing but remember you too need to learn to be human and your comments will prove that.

Yes I agree but it goes beyond just "their belief and opinion" because Jack Phillips denied service physically. The entire issue of marriage equality is because people like Jack Phillips attempting to keep LGBT citizens from enjoying the same rights they enjoy because they are attempting to make their beliefs and opinions which are based on religion law of the land.

People should call on Jack Phillips to do what he threatened close his shop.

The bakery probably respects the sanctity of marriage and only bakes cakes for real weddings. Whats wrong with a business having values?

Liberty and justice for all means the liberty to have your own personal beliefs. Justice means not being punuished for standing up for those beliefs. And of course you're giving us the finger because you really have no respect for anyone unless they are agreeing with you whole heartedly and anxiously kissing your butt. Besides, you sound like a finger-giving sort. Gay bashing? I haven't said a word about gays in this message.

Jack Phillips, you are my hero of the day. I hope you realize that amount of support you have. I hope that seeing the huge turn-out at Chik-fil-a tomorrow will give you encouragement because I would imagine that all who stand for Chik-fil-a would stand for you, too, if the opportunity presents itself.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I don't see anyone defending the opinions of the KKK. Why is that? Perhaps because the KKK stands for having all the civil and legal rights for themselves? Just like the homophobic trolls on this site.(Screw you!)

If I were part of this couple I would be relieved that the bakery owner was up front about his animus toward LGBTs. Better that, than to pay $1000 for a cake, then find out he's anti-gay, and contributing to NOM or other hate groups.

Web sites for gay weddings are all over the internet. There are plenty of bakeries and caterers that would be happy to outfit L/G weddings. I'd much rather give my $ to gay friendly businesses ... or bake my own cake.

The bakery advertises a product, and the only requirement to buy is paying the offer price. If I want to order a wedding cake for my retirement party, why should the business question me?

More importantly: Many suggest the businessman should be able to choose whom he wants to do business with. Would that include, say, refusing service to an interracial heterosexual couple?

We have long established that businesses open to the public must offer their services without regard to personal prejudices. That's just part of the bargin of being open to the public. You can still discriminate. You just have to create a private club in which to do it.

The owner has a very hypocritical stance on the gay lifestyle. His statement saying that he doesn't mind making them a birthday cake or graduation…which makes his views on the gay lifestyle acceptable but when it comes to marriage it's a totally diffrent story..you can't have it both ways Mr. Phillips you either don't or do. You sound like a confused little man who is giving in under pressure .

The cake shop's owner is turning down a $1000 cake sale because chronic homophobia prevents him from reaching his full potential

He is a mess

Liberty is the freedom to buy cake. Justice means you cant be denied that ability based on sexual orientation or race or religion. For all includes gay people even if you dont like it.

This country decided long ago that were not having all white lunch counters and its not going to be any different when it comes to all straight bakeries

Yes, we see the qualifier "in this message." Your entire rant proves what a worthless hypocrite you are. The minute one of us stands up for our beliefs, you have a hissy fit and launch into another of your homophobic tirades.

If you had a life outside your trailer park, you wouldn't have to spend all your time here among people you dislike. Your sex change should have made you somewhat less revolting, but like everything else about you, it was obviously a complete failure.

Would it be okay for this bakery to deny service to an interracial couple? maybe Asian? Regardless of how the business owner personally feels on this issue, it is still illegal to discriminate and that's all he's doing.

The old days where a business owner has the "Right to Refuse Service" is not applicable in today's world.
