  • Had one of these in Lakewood, Colorado, a while back.  The baker felt the Internet's wrath.  IDK if any legal consequences ensued.

    Why is it always the bakers?  Are there no Christian butchers or candlestick makers?
  • Especially a baker named "Sweet Cakes".

    I'm pretty sure that refusing to serve someone based on sexual orientation or because of your religious convictions is a violation of Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but IANAL, unless it's a "private club"
  • There are straight people working in the wedding business?
  • mr_a: Especially a baker named "Sweet Cakes Cheeks".


    Camped that up for you.
  • Whether he broke any laws or not, I thnk we can safely agree he's gigantic douchebag.

    I opened this article thinking that he was going to have a No Fear or Tapout shirt.

    My powers of prediction are a tad off this morning, it would seem.
  • With all the evil in this world, why get so hung up over people who just want to love someone. Geesh

    No. Federal law does not treat sexual orientation as a protected class (if it did, there could be no "DOMA"). Oregon law, however, does, so it's irrelevant.
    Cue all the righties who will defend this lawbreaking criminal's "religious freedom".
  • Isn't that illegal, given that you can not deny use of public accommodations based on sex?
  • Active introvert: With all the evil in this world, why get so hung up over people who just want to love someone. Geesh


    Where do you think the evil comes from?
  • Like the sign says, "We have the right to refuse service to anyone".

    He refused service based on religious beliefs. Now you libs want the state to attack him and his business for that religious belief? What ever happened to the separation of church and state?

    No. Prosecute the lawbreaking criminal - just like if he was an illegal alien, or a gang-banger, or somebody else you don't like.

    Hmm, methinks I should have worded that more clearly. I meant to imply that evil comes from people like those who hate gays, not the other way around. It's early.

    Whatever happened to the "conservative" viewpoint that lawbreaking should be prosecuted? Just think of him as an illegal alien - you know, a person who is breaking the law. Then you'll feel better.

    Yes.
    Because public transportation and a privately owned business are exactly the same thing.
    /sarcasm
  • He has ear rings. A man with ear rings! That would have gotten him refused service thirty years ago.

    Isn't it a civil matter, not criminal?

    Fpr our purposes, legally, yeah, they are. Both are public accommodations. A huge portion of the civil rights movement was about this stuff. Crack open a history book.

    Illegal aliens are prosecuted now!? But where are the Job Creators going to come up with 11 million people to do jobs 50-60% of market value!?

    Why do I have to pretend he's something other than a guy trying to make a living and honor his God? You want to turn him into something he's not for what reason?

    And if you don't like the way he runs his business, go somewhere else.
