I would hardly call this situation "dangerous."

If this is one of the most important things in life in their opinion, for them to file a suit because someone broke the law by not baking them a cake, then they need to grow up and just move on. Good grief.
Move on to where? The next bakery? The next TOWN?

Screw that. We won't be moved.

I love when liberal idiots rejoice over a court ruling that violates the constitution based on their own political beliefs when that very same thing will take away their own rights in the near future. Don't be surprised when people start spitting and taking a dump in your food. Your not going to force anyone to do anything in this country without repercussions.

You are missing the entire point. Nobody is forcing him to personally bake a cake for this particular couple.

Support of traditional marriage is a political belief.

Have you ever been involved in a lawsuit? It can consume your life and make you feel emotionally bankrupt, and even cause physical distress that could lead to something serious. I've seen it happen to people I know.

Besides, some lawyer is gonna make a bunch of money off of them, and the baker man.

What a waste. Save it for an important issue.
You can feel however you like about it. They still broke the law, and were held accountable. Hopefully others will think twice next time, which was the whole point, I believe.

If so, it's one we share.

EDIT: I'm going with the weird 2013 definition of "traditional marriage" as being between a man and a woman (my parents even have a traditional marriage!), not the wife owning and raping at will kind.

I was married when younger to a woman I loved dearly - what the hell kind of marriage involves wife owning and raping? Are you not taking your meds?

The historical kind. The distinction you're making is the same one I was.

But this thread isn't about marriage equality, it's about anti-discrimination law. Sorry to have nudged us off-topic.

I would simply shutdown for a month then have a grand reopening. If they came at me again I would do it over and over until they got the message. PC Liberals don't own my world nor do they get a free pass.

Well the judge didn't fine the business this time. The next time it happens, they will be. And no, PC liberals only own their own possessions, but anti-discrimination law is still a real thing.
