My current job pays barely over $15/hr, and it’s one of the most stressful jobs I’ve ever had. If I could quit this and flip burgers for the same amount of money, I can imagine there are plenty of others out there who would do the same thing. Good luck getting a job right out of high school. Us older, wiser folk will have them all.

The-Monk, I’m an attractive man, and I get hit on by gays all the time, including at work.
Making complaints to HR fell on deaf ears, too.
Now, if someone were to do that with a woman, they’d immediately get sued and lose their job, but gays appear to be immune from such treatment.

Ripe, perhaps you prefer the term Gaystapo. That’s the term I personally use.

And technically, homophobia means fear of h0m0 sapiens.
It’s a completely fabricated term that has a literal meaning which isn’t being used. I simply refuse to even acknowledge the term.
I can’t believe I have to purposely misspell the word h0m0 when it is an actual word that means genus of humans. Ridiculous how the gays have hijacked our language.

Men [plural] love your wives [plural]. Women [plural] respect your husbands [plural]. It’s called the proper use of the English language when you happen to be speaking to men and women in general.
Of course they want $15 an hour. It take some skill to flip a burger & get that dot of ketchup perfectly on that burger with half a slice of cheese, along with a nasty ass employee who huffs & puffs & gets nothing done, lol.
I hear ya. I ran all kinds of cranes, payloaders, forklifts, bobcats, lance torch, cutting torch, unloaded and loaded trucks and roll off boxes, weighed &graded metals, payed customers, cut up everything from ships, trains, cranes, underground fuel tanks, cement mixers with cement all over them, cutting shear, worked around a lot of hazardous materials, cut off gas tanks, cut propane tanks, electric motors with a cutoff saw (hard on back doing it all day)whatever needed done in the scrapyard. I have caught on fire a few times, been slammed with huge I-beam, main blood vessel in leg cut open by a sharp piece of metal. Tons of dangerous things. I worked my way up to $6/ hr. Burger King workers don't deserve $15 an hour. They mess up my order more than you can imagine. They are rude. Most of them at my local Burger King. I'm not talking about every BK worker. I am treated better at McDonalds. Plus their food tastes better. Just compare each places chicken nuggets to each other. Its no contest. When I work somewhere, I give it my all. I want to make sure there is no doubt that my employer is getting his/her moneys worth.

Butter – You’re conveniently leaving out the gay cake topper.

It’s really more simple than this. Since the bakery is being asked to provide a service for a private event which would require a contractual agreement, it does not fit into the category of a public accommodation, and it can be turned down on the basis of contractual law forbidding entering into a written contract under duress.

There is no such thing as “hate speech.” It’s a fabricated term intended to limit free speech which is listed within in the First Amendment as a natural right.

One problem… a gay commitment ceremony is a private event. It’s not a public accommodation. Since a private event is not a public accommodation, no one can be forced to provide services for it. It’s a violation of contractual law.
Tammy Bruce has been saying exactly these things for years, not only now. Unfortunately, that mob doesn’t listen to her, especially because she is also conservative. All her books are great.

Right, because children never get their feelings hurt.
 April 2, 2015 at 1:53pm
I’ve been saying this all along!
Wedding service providers ALWAYS have their patrons sign a contract because their services can costs upwards of $1000.
Since contractual law forbids anyone from being forced into a contract (ESPECIALLY for an event and ESPECIALLY for a POLITICAL event), these wedding service providers can simply refuse to enter into a contract for these events.

The problem with you Leftist troglodyte tyrants is that you really don’t believe in freedom. If you did believe in freedom, you would ignore people who discriminate based upon whatever criteria because it doesn’t matter. Forcing people through terrorist threats and the heavy hand of the courts to participate in your purely political cause is an egregious violation of the First Amendment, and you are only stirring up a culture of hatred and intolerance. This will absolutely backfire on you.

Exactly. These Leftyrants want to end freedom of religion in America and impose a State religion of their own making. They are, in fact, the most intolerant people on the planet, and they deserve to be exposed for the tyrants and bullies they truly are.
[-1] March 30, 2015 at 1:51pm
Agreed, and that should include any and all anti-discrimination laws since all of them violate individual liberty. Just because someone is refused service by a business does not constitute a pressing matter of State interest. What does it matter to the State if Sally’s Bakery doesn’t make a sale on a single cake? Are they going to argue that the tax revenue is a compelling State interest? (I wouldn’t put it past some States, actually.)

It’s not just about religion, though, and we need to understand this or we will absolutely lose this fight since the Left doesn’t give a rat’s tail about freedom of religion. They are finding more and more ways to violate freedom of religion because they hate Christians.
The argument is also about freedom of politics, though. The gay movement in America is nothing if not purely political, and forcing a business to support that political movement is a clear violation of the First Amendment.
My wife is a baker, and her cakes are absolute works of art when decorated. The same thing is true of bakers who decorate cakes for certain events. If an artist is forced to create art for a political event which they cannot in good conscience support, that would be an egregious violation of their First Amendment rights to free speech and freedom of association.
That is the argument we must make. Forget the religious argument.
March 30, 2015 at 1:41pm
It should be the case, yes. That should be their choice.
March 30, 2015 at 1:41pm
The gay movement is a purely political movement, and no business should be forced to support a political cause. That would be a clear violation of the First Amendment.
