    The Chick-fil-a argument is specious, because when chick-fil-a is closed on sundays, chick-fil-a is closed to everyone.

    A person deciding to ban a thing from a store is not the same thing as banning a person from your store. A business could decide to ban you for wearing a hat. Take off the hat, and go on in. It's a little harder to take off the black, or the gay.

    Not in the state of Colorado he can't. Sexual orientation is protected exactly the same way race is, by law. I suspect that this trans person already knew this and that may have been the point, I've read that this person is a lawyer of some sort. The real question to be asking, is why would someone go into legally recognized business and then decide not to follow the law? Is this baker going to decide that following health code law is against his religious beliefs next? When you open a business you are agreeing to operate by the laws set forth by society. It's not against the law to be a dick, but it is against the law to discriminate, and that's what he's doing.

    Were I a gambling man, I'd bet that the reason this has become an issue again is that this totally not gay cake decorator may be facing some financial issues. And you know what? I hope so. Fuck him. Let him and his business become the martyr he so desperately wants to appear to be. A white, male, heterosexual, Christian oppressed for his beliefs. In America.

    Fucking L. O. L.

    He sure won't get my money. The same way I refuse to shop at Hobby Lobby, or to spend money at Chick-fil-a.

    I am not saying what is did is right or agreeing with him. I agree, he should get over it. And I'm not savvy on Colorado laws.

    You think Mr. Cake got that memo?

    I've changed my mind. I want to see if they will make this white, heterosexual male, a cake celebrating my religious beliefs. Surely they wouldn't discriminate against my sincere, deeply held, religious views, right?

    Seems like a well adjusted fellow, Jesus must be proud to have him on the team.

    Count me among the Solidly Secular

    The Religious Typology
    A new way to categorize Americans by religion

    Most U.S. adults identify with a particular religious denomination or group. They describe themselves as Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Jewish, Mormon or Muslim– to name just a few of the hundreds of identities or affiliations that people give in surveys. Others describe themselves as atheist, agnostic or say they have no particular religious affiliation. These are the conventional categories into which Americans sort themselves. But a new Pew Research Center analysis looks at beliefs and behaviors that cut across many denominations – important traits that unite people of different faiths, or that divide people who have the same religious affiliation – producing a new and revealing classification, or typology, of religion in America.

    There used to be a guy at work who would leave those things in the shitter stalls.

    God, he was insufferable.

    The Family Research Council ought to be labeled a hate group. They are terrible, terrible people.
