Seems like an open and shut case -the baker has to serve the customer, but isn't obliged to provide a service/product they deem offensive.

It's the same transgender, rent seeking lawyer who harassed him before. The case was dropped by Scardina and the civil rights commission, and now Scardina is using a different legal angle to get him into court on the same charge that she agreed to drop already.

Simple harassment to cost him time and money in an effort to win a war of attrition. Scardina has made Phillips her white whale.

For all the times I'm accused of being a far lefty for supporting LGBT issues more often than not, no one should be forced to make things that specifically go against their beliefs.

I would never trust buying food from a place I suspect doesn't want my business, especially when there are plenty of other places that do.

Busybodies are vermin. Liberals are just one subspecies of busybody.

Big old target on his back.

If I were him I would get the heck out of CO.
Hopefully he can recover all his legal fees from this a-hole.

Bake the wrong cake - burn in hell


Cheat on your wife with porn stars - all will be forgiven
Our principals are more important to us than money. Money is not everything standing for what's right IS something some of us will ALWAYS do.

Because all associations should be voluntary. Period.

Because there is a freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof. Period.

Because nobody should be forced to labor for others against their will. Period.

Because nobody should be forced to undermine or lose their own property rights because someone else simply demands it. Period.

Because nobody has a right to the labor of others. Period.

I can't wait for the day that baker needs life saving medical treatment. Do the doctors get to refuse to treat jerks?
