Where was the baker's tolerance? Oh, that's right, there was none.

What religion is it that sanctifies dog weddings?

Inquiring minds want to know.

It seems the "Christian" baker forgot to ACT like in a Christ like manner.

"And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

"Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets."

The gay couple was just returning the treatment they received.

Where was tolerance on the part of the homosexual couple? Right, there was zero, nada, none. The homosexual has the unique right to be intolerant of the religious. Tolerance is a one way street with you perpetually angry vindictive people.

So as the baker gave, so he did receive.

Federal law as defined by supreme curt allows for discrimination in private sector but not in public sector. That is why we have religious symbol allowed on private property but not on public. The cake shop is private so this needs to be challenged in court and I think it will be. The court will be mandated to follow supreme court rulings which are clear on this. Religious freedom at at core of constitution as written and it has even allowed special exception to laws by individual religions as supreme court has determined religious freedom over the centuries.

Your shallow understanding of Jesus' message, is just that. Shallow. Had the couple followed his true teachings, they would have turned the other cheek. This never would have been news if they truly understood, believed and followed.
