EDIT: on second thought, it's more of a standard bukkake cake with gummy penises.

RE: Forcing christian bakers to bake gay cakes is wrong
I suggest that the sensible thing to do is to let business owners discriminate however they wish so long as they clearly advertise the fact before hand. In this case a big sign reading "We refuse to serve homosexuals." would have sufficed.

And having done that you will very shortly have bakers with a few more customers and unemployed bigots.

I disagree. I suggest we keep the non-discrimination laws as they are and if you don't want to serve the public (everyone) don't have a business that is open to the public (everyone).

This is BY FAR the most sensible post I've read on this thread. Except I'm torn on the whole advertisement thing. Suppose I don't want to sell to white supremacist group KKK, do I really need to put up a sign stating that?

Let business owners and customers decide who they want to do business with. As long as no one is hurting anyone, I don't think we need government to step in.

That reminds me of the "No Colored" signs there used to be in the U.S.

In fact, it's exactly like that. Drinking Beverage

So if you live in a community miles from any other community and the only gas station in town doesn't want to sell gas to you because you are atheist... that's okay with you?

Or the only grocery store refuses you or the only druggist refuses you medicine? Or the only ambulance service refuses to take your mother who's having a heart attack?

You can be pretty sure a fruit-bottom cake is gay.

Nope. The public is the public.

Suppose that gas station owner wants to close down his business. Should he be forced to remain open for my convenience? In your opinion, should the government require a certain number of gas stations in a given geographical area? Should they make him stay open against his will?

As far as ambulance services go..... I could support mandates that require them to treat everyone. As far as privately owned businesses that no one HAS to shop from.....let freedom ring!
