Nobody would ever "force" me to make anything. It's a business, and as such it needs to be mutually beneficial and sometimes that goes beyond money. Even working withing the law I wouldn't be "forced to do business with @** h***s who harass me no matter how much money they throw down.

Now its already clear these buisinesses are being targeted by radical far left groups who travel the country looking for lawsuits and certain conservative or Christian businesses to target.

So what if I were to go to a bakery I know is owned by a liberal Democrat and ask that they make me a cake for July 4th, and on this cake I want them to have "Trump 2020", #MAGA, and Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

Or what if I were to go to an Arab Muslim owned bakery and ask for a cake with the Israeli flag on it and a quote from the Bible saying that God will bless those who bless Israel and will curse those who curse Israel?

Should I have the right to have these cakes made? Do liberals believe this athiest, liberal or Muslim should be allowed to refuse my request?

I actually kinda want to do Example #1 on July 4 this year it would be fun.
There have been legal cases on both sides of the Atlantic, and both cases failed.

You have every right to have a policy not to make such controversial cakes, as long as the policy applies to everyone and is not discriminatory.
