Cool. I would very much like to cut the tags off my pillows.

Welcome my brother/sister. You can do that and more! Jay walking, double parking, speeding, no more parking fines, the world is your oyster, and no law can touch you.

Can I light up a doobie in the police station if I claim I'm a Rastafarian?

What do conservatives do to try to silence liberals? Nothing.

Yes, that's called freedom. Freedom involves letting other people disagree with your views. It means if someone doesn't want to sell you a wedding cake, then you go get one somewhere else. You don't sue them to force them to make you a wedding cake. You're calling someone else an intolerant hypocrite because he wants to let people make the cakes they want for the customers they want. Intolerance of someone due to their skin color, gender, or sexual orientation is morally reprehensible. But intolerance of someone due to their political or religious beliefs is A-OK. That's ridiculous.

Your self righteousness in your supposed tolerance as you advocate forcing people to operate their businesses according to the standards you want is disingenuous.

I agree that government should not be allowed to discriminate. But forcing private individuals not to discriminate by force of law is simply you practicing your own intolerance. The equal protection clause is government overreach. Bigots should receive the force of social disapproval, with the loss of customers and public ill will that comes along with it. But it shouldn't be the government's job to pick and choose who private individuals do business with. And in wanting the government to do that, you are the one whose intolerance is causing real harm to innocent people. You are forcing people to violate their religious principles.
Very well stated!

Now, for the flipside of this "cake caper" ..... what IDIOT would want to buy and eat a cake that they had to get a court order to force the baker to make? I mean, this really is liberal lunacy in all it's unglory shining dimly. If I were the Baker, I'd probably mistake the jar of sodium for sugar, making a very briny confection more suitable for an equine wedding. I don't think there is any law against making bad cake.

But I've got to say that this entire fiasco REEKS of a staged event ... a pure set-up. No, this isn't just a case of two gay boys tip toeing into a random bakery, and being denied a wedding cake, with the ACLU just showing up to defend the wronged. There was likley premeditation involved here ... the forces of righteous indignation gathering their ranks to make a media extravaganza out of this deplorable discrimination against the poor downtrodden queens seeking a cake.

Conspiracy theory? I don't think so ..... making headline news, with lawyers from the ACLU charging in is not a random event. This is just more of the same promotion of the homosexual agenda being rolled out onto the national stage like the countless other examples of mass media manipulation of society.

....and yet, you'd have no problem with murdering gays with cyanide or shooting judges.
Nice.

Religious freedom! The laws can not get in the way of your personal religious beliefs.
