  1. Scottie, good sign. There is that term called “standing.” Those crying foul have no legal standing as it does not impact them. Keith

    • Hello Keith. I agree but… In Arizona a religious group had a Christian couple form a company making handmade wedding invitations. This company then sued the state for religious discrimination due to the states anti-discrimination laws claiming it was against their religious beliefs to have to make invitations for same sex gay wedding. They really pushed the gay part of that . The important thing here to know is they were never asked to make anything for a same sex wedding and had never turned down a request to do so. In fact it is doubtful they even made any such invitations for any wedding. It was all to challenge the anti-LGBTQ discrimation law. The states new Governor is a hard right anti-LGBTQ person who pushed through a law to expand the state supreme court letting him stack the court with very anti-LGBTQ people. No surprise in a very bigoted ruling the court did everything but call LGBTQ degenerate heathens who deserve to die while proclaiming the rights of religion to be paramount in the law and anything a religion required or a person believed was to be respected above all other laws. As this was a state law matter there is no higher appeal. It is now the law in Arizona that discrimation by anyone / business agaisnt LGBTQ for religous reason is legal. I never thought in 2019 at my age I would see a return to the hateful times of 1970’s /1980’s for gay people. Hugs

  2. Scottie,as you know, the freedom to discriminate is different from protection from discrimination. How would these folks feel if a Jewish caterer refused to serve an evangelical wedding. Or, if a gay bridal gown designer did the same. The reason they do not is they know that would be discriminatory and unwise. Keith

    • Hello Keith. The religious people who use their bible to attack or discriminate against others feel any denial of their rights to force others to live by their doctrines is persecution of their religion. They have had Christian privilege here in the US so long it is something they just expect and it jars them when they do not automatically get it, or their way. What I don’t understand is the idea that by making a cake they are involved in the wedding? That by making a cake they are endorsing the marriage? If they do not want to sell to the entire public why be a public business. Form the business as a club and sell to just club member’s. Hugs
