So if the baker redefined his business as a club and only allowed heterosexuals to join, you'd be fine with it? Kind of like Sam's club....you gotta be a member to shop there.

I would think that a club is by its nature is exclusive.

What if you're a freelancer/sole proprietor/independent contractor/single-member LLC/ retired part-time hobbyist/ etc?

If you're in favor of legislating equal treatment of customers, at what point should the law be enacted? I don't know much about U.S. tax law, so I really can't give any specific examples about what constitutes a "business." I'm pretty sure yard sales are considered a "business venture", and thus require a business license if you have them often enough.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

So maybe that's the answer. The baker only needs to label his bakery as a club, and then he can choose who he wants to sell to. Pretty easy solution I guess.

A club is not the problem. Try to stay on track. Facepalm

Right, but if he labeled his bakery as a club (kind of like Sam's club) you'd be fine with it, right?

If he advertised that his bakery specialized in non-gay cakes and was only equipped to make non-gay cakes, he'd probably be okay. Oh and charge a monthly fee just to be a member of the non-gay cake club. No tickkee no laundry.

Please clarify that with a specific example.

It would have to operate as a club, not a business open to the public.

What is your point? You haven't even acknowledged the arguments against your opinion.

I guess I'm fine with it if all he has to do is call his bakery a club. I can live with that. Kind of like what paleophyte said....just make them advertise, and you're good to go. Works for me.
