Bad News For Oregon Bakery Owners Who Rejected Lesbian Couple’s Wedding Cake Request – http://huff.to/16t0xlR

So they had to go down the street to another bakery.

Should be 1$ and each bears their own costs.
There’s no loss.

This isn’t just a service, this expression and participation- association.

Gay bakers should not have to assist evangelicals or put statements in icing they disapprove of either.

This goes beyond anti-discrimination, to forcing people to use expression they do not believe and participate in events they abhor.

I’d appeal.

I don’t agree with them, but this is a bad precedent that disempowers all of us.

The power of of the state cannot, must not be used to compel political or religious or otherwise controversial expression.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s gays or evangelicals that win a case like this, it puts everyone at risk.

We should all be appalled at a decision that compels anyone to support a cause he does not believe in.
